Wrangler rims on ZJ?

Hey, Im new to the Jeep world. I just got my first '98 ZJ at stock height and like the look of wrangler wheels more than the G.C.'s snow flakes. What is the newest year rim that will fit? Thanks a lot.

The ZJ has a bolt pattern of 5X4.5 (or 5X114.3) so any wheel with that pattern or to answer your question specifically, any of the Wranglers TJ and before, (2006 and before). The new wrangler (JK) wheels will not fit without adapters (They're 5X5.5).

Thanks for the help. And I did that with all of my Mustangs and it always came out great but one day coming out of a store another red ZJ parked next to me with the same rims painted black. I didnt really like the look.

I still have a set of 17s from my 95 GT. They are black with the ponys on the center caps painted red. All my jeep friends keep asking for them but one they are from my first mustang so Im not selling them and two Im not sure if it would look right. If I could get some pictures that would be great.

THanks. I sent him some pictures. Interested in seeing what it would look like. I miss my stang and would love to have a part of it back on the road. A sweet cherry red 5.0 with 120,000 miles on the clock. Parked it walked ten feet away and a drunk plowed right into it doing about doing about 60 mph. If I was in it at the time I would have been killed. Miss it a lot But two foxbodys and now a Grand Cherokee Im feeling a little bit better lol

For accuracy's sake, JKs are 5x5, not 5x5.5.
