Tire/Wheel help

I got a good deal (pending) on a set of stock Bf all terrains off a buddies Hummer. I believe they are size LT285/70R17.

This may be a dumb question but what size rim would I need to fit them on my Jeep XJ 1996?.. I know its size 17 but other than that I am lost..

If anyone can help with the size and bolt pattern that would be sweet, thanks!

If this XJ just for on road? Will it go off road?

I think that tire size and rim size would be miserable on road and worse off road. Don't buy them. I wouldn't run that on an XJ, TJ, LJ, YJ even if the wheels and tires were free. They aren't appropriate for a Jeep, neither in looks nor functionality.

You can ignore my advice at your peril, but if you get those for your XJ, you will regret as soon as your first drive.

I'm not trying to be a jerk. I'm just telling you the honest true facts.

Run away screaming from those wheels and tires while you still can.

in my opinion if your staying under a 35" tall tire go over a 8"-10" wide wheel also stick to 15" tires are easier to find and are CHEAPER. i personally love my 8" just make sure they are a 5 on 4.5 lug pattern and then theirs your offsets that get really confusing so the best think to do is take your jeep to a tire shop and try different offsets to see what one works the best... see if the rub when you turn hard right and left, and check local laws for fender clearance in utah where im from the tread has to be completely covered but other states arnt that strict
