'92 Cherokee Sport wheels

May be a dumb question, but I'm not too familiar with Cherokees. Guy in town has a '92 Cherokee that he's parting out. It's got the wheels that have the little holes around them, sort of like Gambler wheels? Anyway, I have a TJ, and would they fit my Jeep? I only have crappy stock steels, and I really would like something different.
I tried to post a pic from his ad, but they're apparently too large.

PM sent. Was wondering about the backspacing, also. Those wheels look pretty shallow.

Yep give me a minute I have to look through the books. LOTS of pages.

Off the top of my head by glancing I would say 15x7 with 5'' bs...but don't quote me on that yet.

That's good service Distorted. Thanks! Since we're on the subject of backspacing, what would the 'normal' backspacing be, say, for the stock 5-spoke steelies? Is there a standard from the factory for all the wheels that come stock?

Man, that's great! So if I understand how backspacing is measured correctly, if I went from a wheel with 5.5" BS to a wheel with only 5" BS, I would actually be moving the tires OUTWARD?

Yes, Backspacing is measured buy the distance of the inside mounting surface to the outer edge of the wheel. To measure it, Lay a straight flat item such as a carpenters square across the back of the wheel then with a tape measure or ruler measure from the mounting surface to the straight item. This will give you the BS for the wheel.

Thanks Distorted, you've been a big help. I'll see what this dude wants for his wheels. I sure don't like my stock steelies, but there isn't much room in the budget for newer, shinier versions of things I've already got, you know?

Well It's called a 10 hole wheel and is a 15x7.
I however can not find the Backspacing for it yet. I'll keep digging through my books and let you know if I find it.

It was one of the first results in google. You just need to know how to use it.

I figured so.

So...UpChuck...they would stick out .25 more than your current wheels.

Thanks guys. I'm not too worried about the tires sticking out, as far as appearance or anything is concerned, but I've got 31's with no lift or anything, so I wanted to make sure the tires wouldn't be moving inward. First Jeep, which I've had for a few years, but I have yet to mess with the wheels at all, so I appreciate your help.
Sent the dude an email, maybe he'll give me a deal that can't be beat. Like, a buck per wheel! That would be great!
