5 lug 4.5" to 5 lug 5" adapters

5 lug 4.5" to 5 lug 5" adapters

I want to replace my 2004 liberty 16" wheels with my brother-inlaws 17" wheels off of his 2006 cherokee.
My bolt circle is 4.5" five lugs
His is 5" five lugs
I found 6061 aluminum adapters online.
Wondering if this is safe.
Anyone have any input?

Thanks
dave

You will need a lift or you will get major rubbing.

I personally would never recommend spacers as now you got 40 lugnuts to worry about.Just get the correct bolt pattern rims and problem solved.

I do not know the backspacing on the Grand's wheels - so I won't venture as to wether they will work on your rig or not.

If you use spacers, would recommend the Spidertrax ones. Well made and are run on many Jeeps. Currently have a set of spacers on a TJ, and a set of adapter spacers 5 on 4.5 to 5 on 5 on the KJ to run 09 Rubi 17" Moab rims. I do have a lift on it though and required pinch weld pounding for clearance in the back of the front wheel wells & some heat gun work on the front lower air dam lip to clear tires (245-70-17's) on full turns to solve rubbing issues.

JMPO - Adapters are only as safe as the person that installs them. Personally, I check them 3 to 4 times a year as a precaution & after any serious wheelin. I also believe in the manufacturers spec to use the loctite that comes with Spidertrax spacers. Does require heat to remove them though. Also I never let a shop touch the tires or wheels on anything in my driveway. Except for mount and balancing.
