Wheel question on turkey day

Happy Turkey Day!!!

A good friend of mine has a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 8' lift with 33 for wheels. He has a 5 lug pattern and we where wondering if I could do a strait swap from his Jeep to my CJ7. I have attached a picture showing his Jeep with the wheels.

Sorry no picture. I can't get it to re size to fit.

You might want to check the bolt patterns. I believe one is 5 on 5.5" and the other is 5 on 4.5"

CJs did use a 5 1/2" bolt circle. The GCs are eyeball-obviously smaller.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

So are you saying that I'm out of luck or is there a way around that. I like the rims and the tires are new and I would get them at a steal of a price. I would hate to pass this up.

I might be wrong on this but I don't even think an wheel adapter will help you out. Do you have locking hubs???? The center hole might be to small on the wheels you are wanting.....

With 8 foot of lift I hope he has a stp ladder.

I think you are out of luck but a tape measure would tell for sure..

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

Well thanks for the info. I guess some things are not to be. I'm going to try and post another picture GC with the wheels.

Ya the center hole is not going to be the same. The CJ will have outer locking hubs.
