Wj 15" rims on WJ?

Can you fit 15" rims on a WJ? I know rims and tires for that size are way cheaper and more common, so how do I fit 15" rims on my 99 WJ?

If you get steel wheels like cragar soft 8's or d windows they should go on with out any modification. Aluminum wheels will need you to grind your calipers if they will go on at all. Some people say they have to grind a very small amount off their calipers even with steel wheels but most dont.

Hope this helps

Alot of people say when you put spacers on you have to trim more than you would if you didnt, can anyone vouch for that?

15" steels with 4" or more BS will fit, Aluminums will not.

I love the look of the 15" wheels on a lot of guys WJ's on here cause they make the tires look huge compared to mine. I have even seen tires smaller than mine that look bigger and more aggressive just cause of the 15's. Nice rig Seneca!

I have 15's on mine they look great and tire prices are a lot cheaper. I did not have to mod the caliper, but its going to depend on which type you have some have a different casting so you have to grind the little tab on the end down to make them fit.

I beg to differ I have seen lots of 15's on WJ's and they look great. As well as saving 100 or more dollars on tires

kinda hard to tell, but they are 15s. steel rims are stronger than aluminum too.
