Tires and Rims

My wife and I bought a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport last August and we love it. Took it out trail riding this weekend and my brother in-law ask if Ford or Chevy time and tires would fit. Since this is our first jeep I have no clue. Any help?

I have 255/75R17, 5 lug pattern on there right now. I'm not sure what size my brother in-law was asking about. I know he miss, but he's had a few chevys and fords and has multiple sets for both just laying around.

The bolt pattern you would need for the wheel is 5x5, also referred to as 5-127. As for the tires fitting, tires are dependent on the lug pattern. If they are for the same rim diameter you have and they aren't too wide or too narrow for the wheel, then they will fit on the wheel fine. However, then you have to determine if their backspacing will allow them to fit on the Jeep without contacting anything (ie, airdam, suspension components, etc, etc).

Seems like most later model Chevy trucks are 6 lug, so they won't work. My old 99 F150 was 5 lug, but the bolt pattern was 5-135, so they wouldn't work either.

Gene splicing might create a monster.

I just looked back at my post and realized auto correct made me look like an idiot once again. LOL That's the only thing I hate about my EVO, stupid "auto never-correct".
