Re: Are these factory CJ5 Wheels?
They may be factory. Sorry I can't be more specific, but the shot is not large enough to tell. Wheels like that did come from the factory, they were 8" wide, and they are similar to the ones you can get nowadays, but not exact. I had 3 of them, and when I bought a 4th it looked close, but a real jeep nut can tell the difference. The spokes are welded on differently to the outer rim than the new ones, and they're stronger, more well made.
The others are right, the '87 and up short jeeps use the 5x4.5" bolt pattern and the '86 and down short jeeps use the 5x5.5 bolt pattern.
