I just purchased a 1970 CJ-5, my first jeep. The seller tells me that it will need tires. I think wheels/rims are stock.
I have not taken delivery of it yet but would like to start pricing both wheels and tires.
I have looked online and can not find any original manufacturer’s info on this year model.
Can someone tell me, what size tire I should be look for, if I keep the stock wheels?
(What was the size and backspacing on the original rims?)
Also can someone tell me what size the bolt pattern is on this year model?
I know it is a 5 lug but is it a standard 5x5.5”
These are the specs I have on the jeep I have bought:
Buick Dauntless 225 V6
Saginaw Power Steering
GM HEI electronic Ignition
LED Tail Light
LED Reverse Lights
Dana 44 Rear Axle
Dana 30 Front Axle
Also is there some place on the web I can locate the original specs for this year model (like manufacturer’s specs/sales brochure)?
