Wheel Adapters

Hello,

I currently have a set of 16’’ rims and tires that fit any 97 up Ford F-150. I used them this past winter on my 2000 F-150. I am going to be getting a 99 or 00 Jeep Wrangler SE soon and was wondering if these rims might miraculously fit my jeep. I have a feeling that they won’t and am trying to find an adapter. Can someone tell me what the standard lug pattern is for a 99/00 TJ?

Thanks,

Peter

He's right ....the TJ should be 5 on 4.5...the F150 is 5 on 135 mm......It's your call, but I've just never been a big fan of spacers due to the added leverage (stress) they can place on an axle shaft.

bolt on adapters or spacers are a whole different world than slide on spacers...

no added leverage (stress)...no difference than putting wheels with different backspacing...

Peter...here's where I bought spacers for one of my TJ's...they'll make any thickness and any bolt pattern you want...

I would "think" they could make the adapter you want, and they price is fantastic...
