15" Rims/30" Scorpion Tires on Liberty?
I have a 1991 Jeep Cherokee with 15"rims and 30"scorpion tires. I want to put them on my new 2004 Jeep Liberty? Is this possible? I just tried 5/16" spacers and they will not work...
Can I order aluminum adapters to bolt on then bolt the rims to them? Is this possible??? Will the tire fit? Will they scrub at all? I believe they are 9.5 in width...??? HELP???
um. i think the primary problem would be lack of clearance for the brakes. thats not something a spacer would fix.
Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

there is a similar discussion going on over at jeepsunlimited.com with pretty much the exact same thing. However some seem to think thre is a set or two that would work out there. considering there are hundreds of different 15" rims out there currently, the odds that there is a set that fits with some normal backspacing is likely. when someone runs across this rim let us know.
15" rim on Liberty
Good info 4Factor. A friend of mine who works at a 5 star dealer in southern Maine was under the impression that my 15" 96 jeep alloys would go on my 03 Liberty, but I had to tell him no way Jose with info learned from this forum. I hate to let the factory alloys go with the sale of the old 96, but that's the way is is.
actually tonight i tried 5 different sets of 15" rims on a kj. 4 of them there was no way that they would fit like everyone said the caliper was in the way. however on one of the rims i had, it had a 2" backspacing and the extra room that the backspacing gave the rim allowed it to barely fit. i still wouldn't be comfortable with it that way but it did show me that there is something definately out there that should fit. i imagine if you had a descent rim with only 1.5" backspacing you might be able to get around it, but then again i might be wrong.

I really don't think that 15" wheels give you any more tire choices, so unless you're looking to get more sidewall, what's with all this talk?

right now my interest with it is basically the fact that i'm getting rid of my xj and have a few sets of tires with lots of meat left and rims and really didn't want to have to get rid of them. so that's the reason i personally was curious.
