Score #1 Woo hoo, two weekends ago I found a great stash at my dad's place. I am going to be building a small 4'x6' utility trailer to pull behind the YJ, and I found a set of hubs for it that are the same pattern (5 on 4-1/2) as best as I could tell. I didn't actually try them on a spare or anything, but I held them up the spare on the back of the Jeep and they looked like a dead ringer fit. Also found some used springs, hangers, ubolts, and a pipe to use for an axle. The old man even had a lot of the steel I would need to make the trailer frame.
Score #2: Then last Monday, I was talking to a friend at work and told him of my plans. He has a set (4) of 1/2 used 31x10.5 tires that he is going to give me for free.
Score #3: Then this Saturday, I was at a garage sale my grandma was having, and my brother-in-law brought a set of used factory 15" wheels from his 1995 Sonoma. Got them for $25 for all 4. I told him that was not really a fair price, but he just wanted to get rid of them.
Dilemma: GMC factory utilizes a 5 on 4-3/4" bolt pattern as far as I can find out. And Jeep uses a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern for my YJ. Since this is just for a trailer, should I just buy adapters to make the two work? Keep in mind that I can always modify my axle (pipe) to any length to accomodate since it is not yet built. Or should I re-sell the used wheels and buy the correct ones, probably some chrome, white, or black steel "wagon wheels"? If I sell them, what do you think they would be worth with the covers?
