I bought 4 WJ rims and tires last night..

For $65, a guy I know sold me four 16 inch WJ rims and tires off his cherry, absolutley gorgeous white 2000 WJ. ( been trying to buy it off him for months now)

As you guys know, my 97 ZJ has 15 inch rims.
My question is.....since I do have up-country, can I just bolt these rims on and change the speedo gear without any other mods? I really like the look of these rims.

If not...I'll just sell them and make a buck or two....or three...

Wheel size doesn't matter. Tire size does. What size are the tires?

Good point.
I was more concerned with the rims themselves. ( width, etc) They have 245/70s on them now...which is what my ZJ came with from the factory in 15s.( with UC). So I'm guessing that size will be fine using the 16 inch rims.

I forget what my current tire size is today since I bought larger ones last year for the 15s.
I was just going to put a set of 16s of the same tire on them.

Then again, depending upon what I can get for the rims, I might just sell them.
