cj rims wont fit

I recently bought a 86 jeep cj on my way home I was thinking about were to find tires and rims and remembered I had I set of tires of a 06 dodge that are next to new and they are 5x5.5 went to put them on the back fit but the front wont clear the hubs. The tires are 18 inch fuel with 315 70 duratracs so pretty wide. my question is their a way to make them work would rather not use adaptors since but will was wonder more like changing the hub any way of putting a smaller one in

jeep wheels need 4.25 inch center hole to clear the front hubs. Buy OEM wheels or many after market wheel manuf. Like Cragar, Wheel Vintique, have wheels that will fit and have correct bolt pattern.

alright not the answer I was looking for since I liked the looks of this combo also other then jeep what other vehicles have rims that would fit I know the broncos are 5x5.5 as I go to salvage actions and can usually buy the whole vehicles for less then the price of just the tires

Take the wheels to a machine shop and have the centers machined out so they will fit over the hubs. I did this to a set of slots once.

^ this. Your only option if you in fact want to use them.
