TJ Rubi Rims on a JK Rubi?

Well I was dumb and listened to the guy I bought rims from telling me they were from a JK when in fact they were from a TJ Didn't bother to check until a couple months after I bought them when I was about to get winters put on them and I thought I would double check the rim size... at least I did that before I drove down to the US to get the tires put on

Anyway, I know I'll need spacers/adapters but what about back spacing, etc. will they work alright? and will the wheels stick out too far which would cause stone chips along side of the Jeep?

Any suggestions/thoughts would help... I can't find any JK rubi rims around here decently priced.

Thanks in advance.

Sell and buy Jk rims? I know there are adaptors, but for a little more you can have different wheels too. How about Craigslist for both? Are they stock TJ wheels or aftermarket? Stock with spacers won't stick out too bad, aftermarket might.

Being a 16" wheel should've been a dead giveaway.....

They're actually 18'' X 8.5'' wide with a 4.5'' bolt pattern.

Do you have any idea what they would be off of then? they're moab rims, I just don't know what it would be off if they're not off a TJ or JK.

Are you sure they are moabs? The tj had 16" moabs and the jk has 17" moabs. Where in Canada are you? If it happens to be super close to the border by me and they were the TJ Moab rims I'd consider buying them off you.

If you want to keep them tho all you need is 5x4.5 to 5x5 adapter
