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.

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.

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.
