15 to 16 rims

hi, have a 98 tj w/15 rims. need tires and found a good set for a good price but they are on 16 rims. ad says stock rims off a wrangler so i'm guessing it a fairly new one. will ask the yr and bolt pattern, but are rims fairly standard?

No, you need to watch back spacing, bolt pattern, width, and more. I personally stay with 15's since the tires are better priced.

Retired my 94 YJ 4cyl 5spd @ 200K
Now in a 04 TJ 4cyl 5spd CV @120K+
Both as a commuter vehicle in NW, NJ
April 2012.downsized and now a 99er.

"Brand new rims and tires to Jeep Wrangler. Brand new stock rims. Comes with brand new Goodyear tires. Never been driven. Theres no damage what so ever. Please send me an email if intrested. Thank you.P.S. deal includes 4 new rims and tires."

this is the ad for 450--don't think i'd beat it anywhere and if they will fit i save on mounting, balanceing and disposal of old tires-probably close to another 100 added on to the price of new tires.

Not necessarily "fairly new".
My '01 Sahara is equipped with factory 5-spoke 16" wheels which came new with the vehicle.

From the wording of the ad i'd guess they are off of a JK. The bolt pattern will be different and you'd need an adapter to use them. Not to mention those 16" JK wheels are pretty ugly imo...and those stock tires aren't good for anything offroad.

If they are JK wheels they are 5 on 5 bolt pattern you have a 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern .. I have seen people use them but they need adapters to work for a tj .. Depending on witch wheel it is (some look good on TJ's ) i would get then and get a set of adapters for 100 bucks ..

If those are factory stock tires, which they probably are, those tires are crap. There is no load rating, (rating standard) and you can look up what those cost new and you will se thay are aabout 110 bucks apiece,
