It's way obvious they won't fit. The TJ bolt pattern is a 5x4 1/2 pattern and the JK is 5/5 pattern.

you might be able to get some spacer adapters to do it, but why?

If I had a JK I'd be buying all the stock sets of wheels and tires that people are selling for that much and have good tires for years!

Alloy USA makes a shaft for the 44 with 5x5.5. I can't remember if the warn large hub kit will upgrade you to the 5.5 bolt pattern or not.

The JK is 5 on 5 - same as all the newer Jeeps. The Warn, Alloy and Superior hubs are 5 on 5.5 - CJ's and contemporaries.

Buy'em anyway and then when more people start buying JK's you can hog them on Ebay or locally and make some change for your jeep pocket.

Andy, I'm not aware of anyone that makes a conversion for the JK bolt pattern yet. Even when Joe ordered his Walker's we thought we might have to hog the holes out just a hair. I I can't remember the exact metric size of the JK's pattern, but the 5x5 was right on.

5x5 metric is 5x127mm
5x4.5 metric is 5x114.3 (same as a lot of little Jap-cars... ex I seen a CR-V rocking Cherokee wheels, so if you ever need a donut spare )

Yeah, but the JK is a little different than even the 5x5 measurement. I just can't remember off the top of my head what it exactly is.

Well all I'm finding is 5x5 for the JK so I must've been huffing brake cleaner the last time we were talking about it.

And I also have to retract my previous statement. There are in fact spacer and pattern changes for the JK. Seems Spidertrax is making a 5x5 to 5x5.5 adapter and a 5x5 to 5x4.5 spacer. So the TJ guys can use their rims/tires when they buy a JK.
