17inch rim? need help fast

IM looking to buy new tires, this is what i found.

"5 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM tires.
Size: LT 255 75R17
Very good tread and one tire is brand new. Came off a 2007 Jeep Wrangler."

i know the bolt pattern is different, it doesn't come with rims, so I've been looking on CL and junkyards, I have found nothing! so are these even available? he is asking 250 obo is this a good deal, if i got them for 200? should i get heel converters?

thanks

What the heck are you asking? 2007+ wheels will not fit your TJ. If you want to run 17" tires you need 17" wheels. I am not sure what else to tell you as your "question" makes zero sense.

Maybe it's just me, but 17" wheels look silly on TJs. They suck performance wise too. Sure there are 17" wheels out there with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern and even adapters, but you'd be better off sticking with 15" wheels and tires.
