Mystery Jeep tires

I bought a 2003 jeep wrangler a little over a year ago. Wen I got it, the dealership gave me 5 wheels on 18" rims. They said the wheels came from the jeep, but I went to put them on and the lugs don't line up. How can I figure out what model thy go to so I can sell them?

Don't some newer JKs come with 18" wheels?
This site shows how to measure the stud pattern:


Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Wrong bolt pattern. You have 5 on 4.5, those are 5 on 5 Sahara wheels(2007+ Wrangler), they will also fit 2005+ Grand Cherokees.

You can run them on your jeep you just need adaptors. I run those wheels on my XJ (which is 5x4.5 like your TJ).

Thanks for the info, I got them up on craigslist now. I thought about getting adapters but i'm content with my 15r right now and i'd like to use the money for other upgrades.

yea those are 5x5 or 5x127 metrically

The subtle mods make it uniquely mine without destroying the original beauty! But most people looking at the forest will never see the trees!!!!
