First off, really nice fish. On the rims, yes. As far as I know the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern goes back to '46, and from your picture the center hole appears to be the correct size (4.250") . I'm judging this by the Proximity of the center hole to the lug nut hole.
As a example, my '57 Willys pickup has a 5x5.5 bolt pattern, and has the correct size center hole.
I wouldn't be pushing it to far in saying Willys/jeep/AMC only used 3 bolt patterns. 5 on 5.5, 6 on 5.5, and 8 on 6.5".
My '73 1/2 ton J truck uses 5 on 5.5, a '76 to '86 rim fits just fine.

Thanks Tonka. Such a great feeling to get another extra bill paid off. Just getting tired of owing people money so I decided to take some of my rainy day money to pay it off.
I showed the wifey pooh the receipt of payment and I think Stevie might get lucky tonight

I have always wondered, and I might have missed it, was there a project 1-22? I remember seeing you wanted a rat rod jeep and were going to call it project 24.

LOL... I dropped a big hint this past weekend on our way home from our condo. We had to take a detour to return some items at a local DIY store and there happens to be a HD on the way. I pulled in and told her to hang out while I go in to check out some bikes (I took the keys with me).
I came back out and she was checking out a few bikes that were parked outside in the parking lot. She seemed to be interested in the bikes and she again stated that it would be cool to cruise around on a bike.
I was thinking my plan was going to work until we got 5 miles down the road when she said "you're still not getting a bike".
SOB!!!!!!!

The way it's being measured isn't accurate enough. Needs to be like this.
Starting with the 1" mark on the tape.

4 and 3/16" on a factory rim.

This is a AMC 20 Moser 1 piece axle. 4 and 1/8"

The 5 slot rims will fit if you have the smaller 2 bolt caliper front brakes typically with the 5 bolt hub. I went to put them on my 1980 cj5 with the older disk brakes and 6 bolt hub and the caliper hit the inside of the rim because the disk brakes are bigger up to 1980. The hub hole is correct but the caliper is bigger. I went to my 84 scrambler with the 5 bolt hub and newer disks and they fit right on with no issues.

Is there a market for these wheels? If I can't use them, might as well find somebody that can.

While I appreciate your fiduciary common sense of paying the jeep off, ya shoulda kept it a secret. And squirrelled that "payment money" away. I pulled that deal until I paid cash for my 1st NEW Harley when I quit boozing. BUSTED! My punishment was meeting her extended family at the homestead in Greece for 2 weeks. Lived like a King!
And I proved that I could be somewhat honest w/the most important person in my life. Hey, baby steps, small, measured progress .
.
BTW, how about P-coating the wheels silver to match the CJ, w/chrome trim rings? Even if you don't like the finished product much, they should be an easy sell, no?

I was going to pick up the slot wheels this week sometime and put them up for sale as I'm sure somebody is looking for them. The seller had one guy no show and he told me that if I didn't buy them, the wheels would be taken to the scrap yard as he doesn't have time to deal since he's getting ready to move.
Since I can't really use them, I guess the wheels are off to the scrap yard. I should buy them just to have, but I have no use for them and don't really have the room to store them.....

If you bought them what would you want for them?
