I want 17" on my zj

I was trying to find 17" rims at a junk yard that will work on my 98 zj. I dont want to use spacers, I am replacing my 2010 rubi tires with 35's and want to use the rubi tires on my zj. If not available what do the vendors have to offer?

So let me get this straight. You have 2 jeeps, a zj and a jk. You are getting new wheels and tires for the jk and want to use the jk tires on your zj, and can't run the jk wheels because it would require running spacers, so you are looking for 17's with a 5x4.5 bolt pattern. Correct?

What do you have against spacers? They are perfectly safe when installed correctly. IMO that would be your best option, because you already have the jk tires mounted and balanced on perfectly good wheels.

94 Grand Cherokee 5.2 33in. Federal Couragia M/T's on Procomp Steelies, np231 swap, IRO Hack n Tap SYE, Carolina Driveshaft, 4.5 in. lift, RE front upper/rear lower ca's, RC front lowers, Ironman rear uppers, IRO 4.5 coils in rear, 3.5 and 2" bb (no isolators) in front, Bilstein 5100's, Clayton/JKS adj. track bars, KOR rad support and SS, Magnaflow/Flowmaster exhaust, clear corners, custom light bar w/ Hella 500's

just getting new tires on the JK I am getting Treadwrights https://www.treadwright.com/p-118-31...m-t-b2b-d.aspx and they can be used on stock rims cause they are not as wide as a normal 35"

To put 17" jk wheels on a zj youll need a set of adapters going from hub side( 5x4.5) to wheel side ( 5x5) bolt patterns.

Nothing with a low enough back space to allow much taller tires.

Buy aftermarket, or sell the jk tires and but something for the size wheels you already have.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

JKs are 17 but 5x5 bolt pattern so you'll need spacers but they look good.
