What wheels are on my Jeep? Need a 5th

Hello everyone!
I'm new to the forum, and I'm hoping someone out there can help me!
I'm at the point where I need to buy new tires, and want to buy 5 so I can do 5 tire rotations but need to match the rims on the jeep in order to do so.
On the inside of the spokes it has these numbers:
ET 0
I know it's a 16" wheel and I'd assume that it's a 16x8.
I think the ET stands for the backspacing but I'm not positive.
Thanks in advance for any help!

The ES-927 and FA-139 have nothing to do with the size of the wheel, it may be part numbers or something like that from the manufacturer. The 16 x 8 is the obvious part (16 inch diamater and 8 inches wide) but the ET 0 is the offset in millimeters. A zero offset wheel that is 8 inches wide has 4.5 inches of backspacing. Backspacing or offset are both measures of where the mounting plate sits in the comparison to the front or back lip of the wheel, and there is a formula for conversion. Your bolt pattern is 5-4.5 inches or 5-114.3 mm. So those are the specs on the wheel, now just have to figure out who makes it and you can get your fifth!
