08 Wrangler Rims on a 98 Zj

A buddy of mine just offered me five brand new Wrangler rims with new tires for $375. I know the tires are an inch bigger. Is there anything I need to do like spacers or do they just bolt right up? Also if any one has pics please post them.. Thanks

You will need 5x4.5 to 5x5 adapter-spacers.

That price appears to be for a single adapter.

I understand being on a budget, but really, how cheap do you want to go for a part that keeps your wheels attached to your vehicle? $150-$200 for a set of adapters is quite reasonable. I paid the extra $ for the Spidertrax because I know they're hub-centric and built well.

My total was around $130 with shipping.

yes they are single ones but when you do the pass it'll add up to $120.

Best thing if youre on a budget i perfer you on buying used ones.

If youre also spending 375 on wheel/tires you should know the consequences youre going through buying new tires/rims.

Read it carefully before you purchase anything or give em a call if you are unsure.

Jk wheels are 32's, you'll need a 3.5" lift and the adapters.

Not necessarily, the base-model Wrangler was available with 225/75R16's, which match the "inch bigger" description the OP gave.

What he said....

Which means more money.

Im guessing the size tires are 255/75/17???

Yes you'll also need a lift with it with a minimum of 2" Lift + adapters.

Which will cost you more than $500 at your rate.
