Are these soft 8s?

Black Jeep Rims- NICE

So I brought the Jeep to my mechanic for and inspection and he recommended that I get new wheels soon. I have stock 2001 wheels wrapped in 265/75 R15s...He said there is a chance when offroading, if I am on a big bank, the tire would hit the sway bar and get sliced. So I've been looking for some new, cheap wheels and I came upon these. They look like Soft 8's and are 15x7. The woman I emailed said she had no clue and doesn't know the back spacing on them.

Your tires are 30.6" according to translation of the numbers. You shouldn't have any problem at all running stock rims with 30" tires. If your tire does manage to hit your sway bar, the bar is round and can not "slice" your tire. My '02 TJ came from the factory with 30s, and I didn't hit at all even when disconnected.

And those do look like soft 8's. Inspect them well, I don't like the looks of the rust at the hub.

For another bill you can get brand new ones..... Something to keep in mind. Also you'd probably want 15x8" so you can go up to a wider tire down the road....

That makes sense, I'll get some new ones that are wider. Thanks
