Are these factory CJ5 Wheels?

I just wanted to know if anyone could tell me if these wheels were on the CJ5 from the factory.. They look pretty new and the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern would fit a 91 Wrangler wouldn't it? The pic is in the attatchment under my name Thanks.

They don't look like factory wheels. They look like american racing steel rims to me. The CJ 5 on 5.5 will not ift on a Wrangler, unless someone swapped out to CJ axles, If it is stock wrangler axles, then they will not fit at all.

They look like factory CJ wheels - No dice on the Wrangler though. The YJ used a smaller 5 on 5 bolt pattern.

Wranglers use a 5 on 4.5" pattern. Shares it w/ the XJ and Ford Rangers/Exploders.

They could be factory CJ wheels as stated above. Mine are exactly like that except for the color.

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.
