JK rubicon wheels on a TJ??

The snow is on its way, So its time for me to upgrade my tires. however I am over my stock TJ wheels as well. I already have a crawler so I dont really want to lift my daily driver 97 TJ any more than the 2" body that I already have. I really like the look of the JK (2007 and up) rubicon wheels with the 31" BFGs that the JKs come with. However I know the lug pattern is different than the TJ? right? Ive seen a TJ with these wheels on there driving around. Adapter plates?? Pre JK rubicon wheels? Anyone know this guy made this work? Thanks for the help.

I found a set of used Rubicon wheels off of a 2003 rubicon; they look exactly like the JK rubicon wheels but they are 16 inch? Does anyone know if all the TJ rubicon wheels are 16" or did they also come in 17"?
