Think most people are running 15-16 because of the coast of tires. Would like to see what they look like though

i think those are 16s off of a wj grandcherokee. You'll need adapters to put them on a tj. Wjs have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern, tjs have 5 on 4.5

I'm going to go measure them real quick.. and I measured the diameter earlier - it's 17 unless I'm a terrible measurer.

Yup re-measured. 17 inch diameter. 5 on 5.5 inch (if you measure like this - )

Or sell them and buy rims that do fit.

I have some sahara rims listed 4 sale. Lol

I think the spacers are more than a few bucks.

I have other rims that came with the Jeep when we got it. They're kinda cool but I don't know how to take a tire off a wheel and put it on another. Isn't it hard, or could I do it myself? Also the centercaps on these rims are pretty rusted unfortunately...

You can buy spacers on eBay for about 130$ that will fit the 5x4.5 (stock Tj) to the 5x5.5 or the 5x5 depending what year grand Cherokee they came off of... The ones i ordered were the 1 1/2 inch spacers/ converters so the stance will be wider for the stubby look.. There are a lot of options out there! Google it!

Taking off tires is something left to a shop.
