What rims will fit a 98 XJ?

I'm headed to the salvage yard in a couple of weeks and was going to look for some 16" or 17" rims while I was there. Is there a listing somewhere of what other rims will fit this model XJ? I figured the Grand Cherokee and maybe some Wranglers, but wasn't sure.

I'm assuming I have the 4.5 pattern, as I wasn't sure how to measure for this. However, when I measure from center of nut to the next one, it's 2-3/4", and when I measure from nut, skip one, and measure across to the next, it's 4-1/4". The front axle is from an early 90's (92 maybe) XJ, and the rear is out of a 98 Explorer.
Thanks, T

5x4.5 - XJs ZJs YJs and TJs have it, most Explorers and Rangers do as well.

When you measure for 5 lug wheels you measure from the center of one lug to the back of the third. This should help you understand.

Ah, that's what I was doing wrong, measuring center to center. Thanks for the illustrations! Thanks for the models as well, this'll help when I'm digging at the salvage yard!

1st Gen Dodge Dakota wheels will work as well.

Happy hunting

Early model Liberty wheels will fit as well if I remember correctly.
