16s on yj?

OK so here's the deal. I have some 16" tires from my excursion. 265/75/16 toyo open countries. Since my jeep is stock right now And will be for a while, I'm thinking about putting these on. Eventually I want 33s but on 15" rims.

Basically, will 16" OEM jeep rims work? Assuming I'll need 4.5 to 5 adapters.

I see these wheels on craigslist for 50 for a set so since I already have the tires, I think it'll be cheaper to get those 16s plus adapters instead of getting the 15" steelies I want plus 31s. When I'm ready to lift and get 33s, I'll order the new rims for them also.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks

Edit- will those OEM jeep 16s work on a stock height yj with those tires (roughly 31.5 high) or would I need spacers? If spacers, can I get adapters that are also like 2" spacers?

16 inch rims

I think you would get by with these tire and rims on your yj....if the height is 31.5 inches. Much higher and a slight lift would be necessary. 33's on the other hand would require a marginal lift kit....nothing extreme. Make sure that the offset on the rims that you are buying will do the job...that may be more of a factor than height. If your rim offsets are very different than stock, it may cause more problems without a suspension change...and the tires may rub if they are moved "out" or "in" depending on the offsets....since I know everything, it would be wise to consult with a professional jeep guy/gal about this set up....a good tire/rim guy should be able to help also.

Disregard. The 16 inch tires I had were bad.
