YJ rim and tire choice
I just recently traded my toyota prerunner for a 1992 yj. It has a 1" body lift and a 1" shackle lift. The owner before me put JK rubicon wheels with the special BFG muds that come stock. I am not completely sold on having 17's so I was thinking about putting on my 15" alcoas with 31x10.5 wrangler mt/rs I kept off my toyota. So for looks and performance what do you guys thing would be the best wheels, as I need to get tires for either set? And will the 31s clear as the 255/75r17s rubb when i turn to tight. Thanks in advance. Now pics

Well I know they used wheel spacer/adapters to use the JK wheels as they have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern and your YJ has a 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern. The JK tires are also the metric size of a 32'' tire.

The alcoa wheels are a great forged wheel and very strong. What is the bolt pattern on them??

They are 5 or 4.5. So I would have to take off the adapters which is not a problem I just don't know which ones I should run for looks and if the JK wheels will stand up offroad well.

Well that is you personal choice bud. of the alcoa's. and the fact you won't rub. The backspacing on the alcoa's is most likely 3.75 or 4.0''. the JK wheel are 5.5'' backspacing. ;)

And the tire hieght will help with not rubbing as much. Plus you will be able to get rid of those adapter/spacers.

I'll add a pole to this thread for you. but the choice is still yours. :)

Cool thanks a lot.

the alcoa are probably the stronger and lighter of the two. I'd go with the alcoa. Both wheels look great though.
