16 inch wheels for a YJ ?

I am wanting to put a set if 245/75/r16 wheels on a YJ and wanting to do it on the cheap with OEM wheels.

5x4.5 is the bolt pattern and it appears a lot from the YJ era share that. My concern is backspacing and unknown width.

So I am looking for some Craigslist search words. Like a 2002 liberty or a 2006 grand cherokee or maybe a crown vic because they are 245s

Thoughts?

If someone knows a trick to search for the number 16 and the letters YJ in this forum, I would love to know that.
According to the search function the character count us too short. The irony of that under a catch all tires and wheels sub folder is epic.

Not sure why you'd want to do this as 16" tires are more expensive than 15" and most 16" tires are load range D or E rather than C that you should be running. But, if its what you want to do I'd look for TJ Rubicon take offs which will match your bolt pattern and be 16". Also, you are asking about a YJ, but your profile says a TJ.

This is for a friend. He was gifted a set if nearly new tires from a family member.

Interesting input on the load range as I think they are from a truck.

As a comparable example I had a set if 18" all terrain BFGs from a prior deal. I did a lot is searching and found that I could use a Chrysler wheel on my 97 TJ. I posted a thread with the results.

I have Michelin LTX AT2 P245/75R16 on wheels from a 98 ZJ on my TJ. I have put them on my YJ when I had a lift kit on it, no issues, no wheel adapters or spacers. Paid about $25 apiece for the wheels from the junkyard. Like them as they are not as wide as 31x10.5 15 tires

02-12 Jeep libertys had 7 inch wide wheels with 5 inches of backspacing
many of those out there but right now can't remember what backspacing works best on a YJ. ( had 4 of them, 2 bought new) should remember but....
