What size are my factory CJ wheel?
What size are my factory wheel on my 1983 CJ7? Thanks!
I do have a tape measure but the tires are still on the wheels so I don't know how I would measure them. I knew they were eaither 15x7 or 15x8. I just need to be sure of which one. I would assume that there was a standard size.

Good judgement comes from experience; experience comes from bad judgement
All WT (Wide Track) axles are 15x5.5 for steelies and 15x7 for wagon wheels whether they are white or chrome finish. All NT (Narrow Track) axles w/disc brakes are 15x6.5 for steelies and 15x8 for wagon wheels.

The chrome ones pictured are 15 x 7. I can tell be the distance on the second step up of the rim where the face folds under. If it was 15 by 8, this area would be larger. To confirm, take one off and use a rag to find the numbers on the back side of the rim. It will say "Made in Canada" "15 x 7" and a date stamp.. XX XX 82 or 83. DOT......long number.

I have the 86 chrome Laredo rims like those and the size is stamped on the back side of it so you just have to turn it over to see. Mine are 15x7.

A quick and dirty hack is to take two 5 gallon paint stirring sticks (free from Home Depot or Lowes), cut one it just fit across the lip of the inside of the rim and cut another to sit across the outside of the rim and then stick a tape measure through one of the holes in the rim and measure between the two paint stick. A helper makes the job easier.
