Extra rims don\'t fit !!!!!!

When I bought my 91 YJ the guy threw in a set of American Racing Wheels W/33x12.5-15"s_General Grabber AP[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I tryed to put them on my Jeep I discovered the bolt pattern isn't the same as my Jeep's.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] The bolt pattern on the wheels are 5-1/4" x 4-1/8". What do they fit?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Thanks Donnie

Re: Extra rims don\'t fit !!!!!!

5.25" and 4-1/8" what kind of measurement is that? I assume they are 5 bolt wheels, so we will rule that out. let me see if i can explain this....
The way to measure a wheel, with 5 lugs is as follows. orient the wheel so one hole is on top. then count three hole and put your finger on it. you measure from the top of the top hole to the center of the hole with your finger on it. that will tell you that the wheel is 5 on ?". Thats the way it says to do it in the new 4WPW magazine i just got. I dont know if its right, if its not someone will correct me. Generally, the YJs, i believe, were 5 on 4.5" like the TJ wheels. If not, then they are most likely the 5 on 5.5, which wis what late model 1/2 ton Dodge Rams and for F series 1/2 tons have used since for as long as i can remember....

hope i helpe you at least a little! If not, at least i got you back on top!!

Re: Extra rims don\'t fit !!!!!!

That's how you measure the BP on 5 bolts. If BP is close to your jeeps, then it may be a Chevy (car or S-10) 5 x 4 3/4". If it isn't close to fitting, then it is most likely the 5 x 5.5" mentioned above.

Hit? Them tires rub. Rubbin's off roadin.

Re: Extra rims don\'t fit !!!!!!

Thanks for the info guys,[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] they are 5 lug rims. I didn't know thats the way they measured bolt patterns sounds a little wierd to me,[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] but who am I to rock the boat, guess I'll have to go home and break out the tape again.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] I belive that they are the 5 on 5.5 by adding a little to the way I measured them center hole to farthest center hole anyway they are way to big for my YJ.(bolt pattern that is) Just trying to find out what they fit so I'll know where to post them.
Thanks again[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Donnie
