New Rims *Fitment Question* ???

Hey guys. I was going to order a set of wheels for my jeep. I wanted to get closest to the stock size as possible. I'm looking at these http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Xt...n=PXA7023-6885 But it says 16x8 when my stock ones are 16x7...... Will they still fit with out rubbing? What does the 8 mean? The width of the rim? Any help would be great guys.....

16 inches tall and 8 inches wide. If you are keeping stock tire size then yes they should fit just fine. My stock wheels are 17x7.5.

Yeah, they're the wrong bolt pattern. Sucks because thats a great price for an alloy wheel...

Here are the ones for the WJ http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Xt...n=PXA7023-6873, but they're more expensive.

I'm not a huge fan of blingy chrome wheels, but for $50 these look pretty sweet! http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Xt...n=PXA4028-6873

some 15" steel wheels will fit with at least 4" of back spacing. Cragar soft 8s definitely will fit might have to do a little grinding on the front rotors to clean off the casting edges on the calipers. See my build thread I have 15" soft 8s on mine for offroad use. Most 15" aluminums will not fit as the casting is thicker for wheel strength so they hit the calipers bad.
