Wheel Adapter

Im looking at a set of 31'' Mickey Thompson wheels that have a 5x5.5 bolt pattern. I have a 2002 wrangler sahara and I believe that the pattern is 5x114. Is there some kind of adapter that I can get for the 5x5.5 bolt pattern to fit my 5x114's. Thanks in advance.

Okay I am lost.. You want MT rims? Or 31" tires? Rims for a stock TJ are 5x4.5" for the pattern. 5x5.5" are Cj style.

I'm looking at set of MT rims that are mounted on 31 inch tires. The bolt pattern on the rims is 5x5.5, so they wont fit on my jeep. Is there an adapter or something that would allow me to use the 5x5.55's on my jeep?

Thats exactly what I was looking for, however a Massachusetts law states that your tires cant extend outwards past the feder flares, and seeing as the 31'' tires will almost do that, adding the spacer probably would extend the wheels too far out, and I wouldnt pass inspection.

Without doing a hub conversion and having your rear end converted to 5 on 5.5", you won't be able to find an adapter that will leave you at stock width WMS to WMS.

Hm, sounds like you need to move to pehaps a red state, where things are a bit better in the fender/tire stick out dept.
