Jeep WK2/JK 5x5 Wheel Encyclopedia
 
The Jeep Cherokee Wheel Encyclopedia is a very awesome list of all the 5x4.5 wheels that came on the XJ Cherokees. I'm fairly certain this info exists for TJ/YJ wranglers as well.

This thread will be the WK2 version, but will extend to other 5x5" bolt pattern wheels that are OEM from Jeep, and if time allows, the aftermarket as well.
Try to stick to the following format:

Name/Style/Description
OEM WK2, WK, or JK, or Aftermarket
Heigth x Width (in inches) and Offset(mm) or Backspacing(inches)
Link to pic on WK2
Picture of wheel

Please correct anything that isn't right, and post up offsets and backspacking if you have the wheels. (It should be stamped somewhere in the back of the wheel ET##)

Notes:
OEM center bore is 71.5.
Please limit this thread to wheel information only, not tire info. This is not a what size tire thread, how much trimming, or what size lift to clear X thread. There's plenty of other threads for that, knowing the exact size and wheel fitment is the first step in that process. Offset is crucial.
This is for information only, please do your homework before buying anything for your Jeep, while I've tried to be as accurate as possible, I'm not liable for anything you buy or do.
If I used your picture, thanks. If you didn't want me to use it, PM me and I'll take it down.
HD brakes are bigger than standard duty. If you have HD brakes, take that into consideration when determining wheel selection.

measured on an 8" wheel, 56mm offset from the centerline is approximately 6-1/4" of backspacing, user posts on forums is the only data I've found on stock WK2 offset, and, allegedly applies to all 18x8" oem wheels. As I verify info, I will remove these type notes...

Unless I missed it, don't forget that Hemi equipped GCs have the big brakes so minimum of 18" wheels are required. I'm having a hard time getting shops to gaurantee fit on 20s for my wifes Overland even after telling them it came with 18s with the Offroad 2 package. This is a post we've all been waiting for.

Good point on the brakes, and worth noting.
I need your guys help to ensure this list is accurate.
:rtft:

Pretty sure that's all the WK2 wheels for now. I'll tackle JK next (skipping 16" due to brakes) then loop back around for WK.
Then... the endless aftermarket, which, at this point, all appear to have offset tailored for our Wrangler brethren.

You might note the difference between painted and polished/clearcoated (sometimes called "chrome", but they are actually just polished) in the descriptions, to help differentiate. Thanks.

WKdeuce 05-23-2012 03:55 PM

Damn... This should probably expand to include XK Commander too right? They're 5x5
