Trying stock Ford Explorer wheels on a YJ

Is anyone running Ford Explorer wheels on a YJ? I have a 95 YJ and I'd like to try a set of wheels off a 98 Ford Ex. But I'd like to know if they'll fit before I buy at the local pick and pull.

They will fit the studs OK.

Back spacing is the thing to look at. Your stock wheels should have 5.5" back spacing. What back spacing do the Ford wheels have? If they are more than 5.5", the tires may rub. If they are less than 5.5", the wheels will stick out further which may or may not be a problem for you.

Obviously, if the Ford wheels are a different diameter, you will need a different set of tires.
