MOST 15" Jeep wheels are 15x7 with 5" backspacing. Most, but not all.

Oooops..... Yes the 9.5" wide tires will work fine on 7" wheels. It's actually the recommended width.

ok decision time. i want to de-pimp my ZJ. the more and more i look at the gold snowflake rims, the more i dislike them lol.
I've narrowed it down to 3 choices:
Gamblers:

Ravines:

Turbines:


Im leaning towards the turbines, because theres a set in the junkyard near me, but what do you guys think?

i would get those but those are 16 inch wheels, the older style snowflakes are 15 inch, which is what i have and my tires are nearly brand new.

IMHO, the Turbines have the most class. I wouldn't mind having a set myself

Ravines. Gamblers look like crap and Turbines would look great on an old CJ. The old 93-95 tear drop limited rims look great blacked out.
