What do you think about these wheels?

I got a 97 sahara, factory, no lift yet. i know these wheels dont match bolt pattern, but i can get adapters right? how well do you guys think they would work? would they stick out too far? any other cons?

this is the ad from craigslist.

Selling exellent condition 15x8s Black rock D Window wheels with silver machined outer lip, they are amazing looking rims, all still in boxes, practicly new, -12 offset, they got multilug 5x127/5x5 & 5x139.7/5x5.5 bolt patterns, will fit alot of different vehicles listed below do your own research

Yes there are adapters out there for the 5x5.5 to be put on a vehlicle with a 5x4.4.5 bolt patterns. Seen quite a few cases where people have put stock JK rims on TJ's and a few YJ's

With adapters you are going to have an awfully small backspace with those wheels. -12mm on an 8" wheel is about 4.5" bs, (iirc) then add in the 1.5" adapter and you are sitting at 3" bs which is 2" less than your stockers..... Gonna look like a roller skate, IMO.

She is just a little off.
Those wheels have a -12mm backspace. For an 8" rim 4.5" is 0mm

So 4.5 - 12mm = 4" backspace
4"- 1.5" adapter = 2.5" backspace.

Aka: Its going to look really goofy and you are going to go through a lot of front end parts like ball joints.

Not a problem, you just forgot about the 1/2" bead lip on each side of the tire. Which figures into the backspace. So a 8" wheel is actually 9" when it comes to figuring backspace.

the price for the wheels would be the same, but then the adapters would put me over, so buying them new at summitt would be cheaper, lol!!
