wagoneer wheels on yj

I have been told I have wagoneer wheels on my yj. I am looking into a lift and bigger tires. Would I be O.K. using these wheels, I am thinking about 31' -32' tires. Should I look for a set of wrangler wheels and if so what size.

Thanks again

You sure they didn't say "wagon wheels"? Wagoneers had the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern and all YJs have the 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern. Wagoneer wheels wouldn't fit on your stock axles.

Whatever wheels you have, they're sure to work just fine if they're already on the Jeep. Sometimes it pays to get a little more offset when you go to wider tires so you don't lose your turning radius. But otherwise, I'm sure they'll work.

What do you mean by "5 on 5.5 bolt pattern"?
I looked at some pictures online of wagoneer wheels and they look like mine is that good or bad?

By offset do you mean wheel spacers?

Thanks for the info!!!!

YJ's and TJ's use a 5 on 4.5" pattern. Meaning, 5 lugs, spaced 4.5 inches apart. Wagoneer, CJ's, and so forth use a 5 on 5.5".

Hey guys, don't forrget that there was an xj version of the wagoneer and that alot of early xj's came with rims styled like the old fullsize wagoneers. They are 15x7 with a 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.

Tonka -

Your a good man!!!

Thats what my wheels looks like. I started thinking I was going crazy.

I guess I can keep them - I have read that 15x7 are O.K. for 31'-32's

I have those same wheels on my '90 YJ. They are 15x7 5 on 4.5 pattern. I am currently running 31x10.5 tires on them and they rub the springs during tight turns.

I'd run 31,s on a 7 in. rim, but 32' are better left to 8 inch wide rims.
