I saw these and have nearly brand new tires on my current rims.. I just hate my rims lol. Would these fit? http://charlotte.craigslist.org/pts/3745046698.html

No. Those look like JK rims, which have a different bolt pattern. Also they're either 16s or 17s (I think that style came in both sizes, but may be mistaken), so I'm guessing they won't work with your current tires anyway.

The XJ bolt pattern is 5x4.5. Other jeeps with the same bolt pattern: TJ, ZJ, YJ.

Which rims do you have now? Around here there are generally at least one or two sets of jeep rims per week that will fit our XJs. Shouldn't be too hard to find something different if your only requirement is that they are different than what you have now.

Those are my least favourite XJ wheel, especially in the gold flavour. Kind of like your grandfather's style. Not as bad as ZJ snowflakes though.

Ranger, Patriot, older explorer (don't know latest model) rims will also fit.

Why not go on Summit, drill down to 5x4.5", 8" wide (to future proof yourself), 4" Backspacing and choose from the many options for 50-100 bucks a wheel? Steel is heavier than aluminum/alloy but on a trail they will tend to be more durable, they cost less, and you CAN beat a rim roundish again if in a pinch, alloys are likely to crack/chunk off.

I was thinking about trying to go to a salvage yard and look around

I don't mind a half hour drive.. I'd honestly welcome it. I'll give them a call. Is it a pull your own kind of deal?

I think so. We did at least. He wanted too much for some Waggy axles so we didn't end up buying anything.

Those look like they're in pretty good shape. I know few people like that wheel, and while it's not my favorite, it has grown on me. If you were closer, I'd give you a little $ for them assuming they're as healthy as they look; mine are all kinds of corroded, and I kind of like being "that guy" who proudly uses the weird wheels. Turbine wheels from the Renix years are probably my favorite XJ wheel.
