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.
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?
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?
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!
