Wheel size help

I want to put these wheels on my 1999 TJ Wrangler. I realize it will require spacers but wanted to know if these will in fact fit with the proper spacers? Any help is much appreciated....

Jeep JK Wrangler OEM Wheel Size: 17"

Lug Pattern Metric: 5x127mm

Lug Pattern Inches: 5x5in

Stud Size: 1/2x20

Hub/Center Bore: 71.5


What would be a good tire size for these wheels? Going to replace the tires shown if the wheels can fit my TJ. Jeep is not lifted and very seldom goes off road.....

Hub/Center Bore: 71.5

Offset / ET: 20 - 25.4 (the above JK wheel's Offset / ET on the 17'' x 7.5 is 44 check inside the wheels for a mold mark "ET44" etc)
I'm buying these from someone so I'll try and see if they can get me the mold mark? I don't know what ET really means as I've never messed with something like this conversation. However these are the adapters that I think would work? BTW thanks for the info you've provided me... I'm getting ALL the wheels for a 100 bucks. Tires aren't worth saving but I figure the wheels should be worth that much? Your help is greatly appreciated...

Would these be the right adapters to use? Trying to get the ET for these wheels as you suggested. I'm buying all 4 wheels for 100 bucks which seems to be a decent deal.... Thanks again for the guidance
