with the center hole issue, I don't think there was or is any rim, that looks similar...that 'fits'.
well, I know that there are, I know quite a few people who have sets on there Jeeps that aren't the factory original 15x7's, most are the 15x8 or 15x10's... they were made, there just aren't a ton of them still floating around...
Have done a few projects on the JEEP recently. Got a set of aftermarket slotted wheels. Would rather not tell what I did to get the wheels to shine as it falls into one of those "Kids don't try this at home" categories. Put on a set of 33x10.50 BFG MT. Had to install wheel spacers in the front to mount them over the discs. Once the tires were under the fenders, started looking at the trail damage on the rear. Decided to cover over with diamond plate for now. Not a big fan of diamond plate, but it does look better to my eye than a mangled rear quarter.
I had a 61 Ford Ranchero, four lug wheels. I had a 79 Celica Supra, four lug aluminum wheels. Same bolt pattern. The center opening on the Celica wheels was too small. I used an electric drill an a grinding stone and opened them up to fit. Then, had them balanced.
Too simple, .
I have 5 rims 15 x 7 that look like the ones in the pictures on my 1975 CJ5 Renegade. Most of the Jeep is original, so there is a good chance they are original. They are in good, but not perfect shape. I have pics if anyone wants them, they can make an offer. I'm looking to get some wider rims so that I can put wider rubber on my Jeep. My rims currently have have BF Goodrich A/T's (31"). Would consider a trade for rims and tires.
I have aquired a set of these and looking for some lugs. I have heard WTH is that a couple of times when I show them the lugs that I have (only have 7). The lugs I have are tapered AND shanked. The shank is really thin walled. It seems that there is conflicting info regarding these wheels. If anyone is running with a set, can you describe the lugs?
Also, I have found that the centers of my steel wheels do not fit inside these wheels and they seem to fit tight against the axle hub. I am not crazy about the look of the back wheels without centers but, with these being so hard to find, I think it might be a mistake to have the hole opened up. So, what are the other "slotted" owners doing with centers on the rear.
BTW, if the question still remains on this old thread, these fit over my brake calipers without any issue on my 1984 CJ. If I had the lugs, I'd be running them now and trying my best to ignore the center issues.

they probably aren't off a jeep then.
IIRC, you ned a center bore of 4.125" (or such), and my guess is that you have 3.75"
