I am stationed in the Middle East and have an EXPORT (non-U.S.) 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. I recently bought new rims from DT in the U.S. thinking the bolt pattern was the same regardless of delivery location. I was wrong. The 5 X 127mm does NOT fit my jeep and the TCN working at the local tire shop related that the stock pattern appeared to be "around" 115mm.

However, when I got home and threw the 4 brand new wheels and 4 brand new 33x12.5 tires back into the garage (argh!!) I got back online and see that 114mm, 4.5inch bolt pattern is much more common. Is 5 X 4.5 my real size?

BLUF: Can anyone tell me what exactly the bolt pattern is for my EXPORT 2011 Sahara???

Very weird, as they'd need custom rims as well. TJs' had 15 inch rims on everything, and none of those would clear a JK brake caliper.

No. Take pictures please. They had leftover Dana35's in 2007 and still used a normal 5x5 bolt pattern. I've never seen any JK with a 5x4.5. Where was it built? Is it a J8?

Did the previous owner replace the hub to fit his favorite 5x4.5 wheels on it?
