lethal_inject1on I found a set of 15x8 bolt pattern 5x4.5


The seller says there is a -27 offset. How should that factor into my decision to purchase ?

I believe that you will have more of a choice of tire sizes with a 15" rim than a 16".
You are getting some good advice here. The bolt pattern is absolutely critical, since those wheels just will not fit without adapters, which will indeed push the wheels out too far, put additional stress on the wheel bearings and other components, and is just not worth it. Buy the proper stuff once and then enjoy it. I agree that for a TJ with modest modifications, 15" rims are just fine. You can certainly run 16s and larger.

Enjoy your Jeep.

lethal_inject1on Thanks.


Was not aware that the '5' stood for bolt pattern. Never purchased any new wheels.

InvisiblePants As Jeepwayoflife said, those will not bolt on to your current axle. the lugs will not line up and there will be 1 extra hole.

He could just use spacers/ adapters, but they're 1" thick minimum, which would stick those wheels out way, way too far.
They make those wheels with 5 on 4.5.

Tire size for these wheels

Looking at the iOn Alloy 171 wheels. The size of the wheels are 16x10, 6x5.5

What size tire would I need to go over them, and any brand/style of tire recommendations would also be appreciated.
