5.9 ZJ Wheels

I'm looking for a ZJ to build into a good daily driver/off road vehicle. I have everything planned out for the build. I found a 1998 Grand Cherokee Limited 5.9 with low miles and a good price. Going to look at it soon. Only problem is it has like 20" chrome rims on it which i don't like. Can you run 15's on a 5.9 ZJ? I know they come with 16's and i'm not sure if the brakes are bigger and can't fit 15's. Also, my dad has a 1999 TJ Wrangler with stock 15's and we should be getting the new black wheels in a couple days. Could i slap some used tires on those and use them until i start the build?

Thanks for the input.

Thanks good to know. Hopefully i'll look at the Jeep today and if all is good, drive it home.

ZJones, my build is planned out just like yours. I'll have Iron Rock Off Road long arm kit with 5" coils and shocks. Hanson front and rear bumpers. 35's. Also planning on the Iceland Offroad flares. How do you like them?

And you don't happen to have your stock 5.9 wheels and tires do you?

I love the Flares! They're one of my favorite mods on my Jeep, I can't wait to get the 35's under them.

Sorry I got rid of my 5.9 wheels years ago.
