Did Jeep make 16 x 7 wheels with 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern?

If so, what backspacings available?

I'm looking for 5" BS or 4.75" BS or something near those.

4.75" BS would be ideal.

Preferably aluminum.

Update: In 2013 I bought some Jeep Icon wheels that are 16 x 7 with 5.25 BS that weigh 21 lbs. I did a test fitting with some used 245/75R16 AT tires and everything clears well. However, my 30 x 9.5 R15 tires are still newish. So I'm still using my 30 x 9.5 R15 tires on Ecco 15 x 7 wheels for next year or two.

I've been looking for the same wheels. Closest I could find were liberty wheels with 5.5" backspacing.

Since posting OP, I read somewhere that some XJ and ZJ came with stock 16x7 with 5.25 BS. Edited in Later: Called Icon wheels.

I read at another forum that they have only 4" BS, which is not enough for my needs.

Thanks for trying to help.

Depends on the year and if it's a 4x4 package. I had to hunt for 4 explorer rims that were the same bs, the stock steelies have one of the most pronounced safety beads I have seen. I could air down to 5psi for the dunes and never popped a bead.

Icons are 16" Jeep wheels that came on some later XJs.

True, but asking doesn't always yield results.

What BS do you think the 15 x 7 and 16 x 7 OEM wheels are? I have always heard they are 5.25 BS, but a sticky thread in the TJ forum about stock options, parts, wheels, says the 15 x 7 wheelz (Grizzly, Ecco, and other 15 x 7) have 5.5 BS.

I think Ecco and Grizzly are 15 x 7 with 5.25 BS.

Edited in Later:

All wheels mentioned in Mschi's post are hubcentric Jeep wheels.

The Timberline (aka Snow Flake) is 16 x 7 with 5.25 BS.

I'm pretty sure those various KJ wheels are 16 x7 with I think 5.5 BS. Can anyone verify?

For YJ, XJ, TJ, ZJ a 15 x 7 or 16 x 7 with 5.25 BS is ideal with a 9 to 10" wide tire.

On my XJ, I currently run 30 x 9.5R15 load C tires on Ecco 15 x 7 with 5.25 BS. This is excellent.

I bought some Icon 16 x 7 with 5.25 BS. I plan to use 245/75R16 (31 x 9.5 R16) load C tires on them.
