Can my stock wrangler TJ fit
 
I am about too go and buy these tires (set of 5)off of craigslist for around 1000$ might be able to talk down to 850$

My question is would a : LT255/75R17 LR C BF GOODRICH MUD-TERRAIN TA KM fit on my wrangler without any modification or lift as I have it? OR would they just rub badly? What should I do here?

Have you purchased wheel adapters?

Brad48178 09-15-2012 03:23 PM

These rims are off a jk you'll need spacers to change your tj bolt pattern to the jk bolt pattern. Not sure if they'll rub though.

So what kind of spacer or adapter should I get? How else could I change my bolt pattern?

gonna need a bit of a lift, with some bumpstop extension, also. bolt pattern on the spare tire carrier will also be wrong, so you won't be able to carry a spare, or you'll have to modify the carrier.

How much of a lift? They wouldn't fit on stock for a couple weeks ?

Jerry Bransford 09-15-2012 04:12 PM

That size is between a 31" and 32" tire and for a few weeks you could get away with it until you can install a lift for more clearance.

However, the wheels won't fit without an adapter to convert their 5x5" bolt pattern to the TJ's 5x4.5" bolt pattern and to me, the cost of the adapter plus the fact the adapter will make the wheels stick out like a skateboard make that buy something I'd pass on.

Do you think that I would just be better off having the stock rims and just get tires for them?

They look like this and are 5 x 4.5

Personally, I'd rather have a stock wheel with the correct 5x4.5" bolt pattern like in that photo than use any wheel with a bolt-pattern adapter. Yep given that choice, I'd go for getting new tires for the stock wheels.

jackillac 09-15-2012 04:58 PM

Why is the bolt pattern adapter a bad thing? Does it have too do with the spacer or the bolt pattern part of it. just curious?
