I do believe CJs are 5 on 5 1/2, YJs are 5 on 4 1/2.

Re: Help! need to know bolt patterns!
 
Where was this info when I tryed to find out what the extra wheels I got with my YJ fit because they don't fit my Jeep, way to big.(bolt patern that is)
Now I gotta go do some more measuring and maybe I can sell them now that I know what they fit.

Thanks Dirt Dog

I seem to recall someone telling me that on older Dodges and Fords that ones wheels would fit on one but not the other because of the center hole size, does anyone recall which way that worked?

Skellator,
None of the Ford wheels will fit your YJ. As Dirt Dog showed they are 5 on 5 1/2. Your YJ is 5 on 4 1/2. He also noted that some Dodges are 5 on 4 1/2. The info was already there to answer your question.

The Ford hole is just slightly smaller than the Dodge. I used to have an old Dodge Challenger I drove in the winter time when I lived in chicago, it had snow tires on Ford rims on the rear, they were on there PERMANENTLY!

Re: Help! need to know bolt patterns!
 
Don't just check the bolt holes, check the hub opening as well. The newer Ford/Dodge that were 5 on 5 1/2 had the smaller hub opening. Most of the aftermarket wheels have the larger hub opening. Don't plan on using stock wheels off of these rigs unless you plan on opening up that hub hole. My spare is on an 87 Dodge wheel and I had to open it up using my dremel so that it would fit over my hubs. If you open a stock wheel up too much, that's no big deal because none of the 5 on 5 1/2 or 5 on 4 1/2 wheels (that I know of) were ever hub-centric (meaning they were centered via the hub opening). I've only seen lug-centric (yes this means they are centered via the lug's)....Bret

Re: Help! need to know bolt patterns!
 
BTW I forgot to mention that rangers and broncoII's, and Jeep XJ's are 5 on 4 1/2. The 80 and 81 ford f-100's were 5 on 4 1/2. Also all my listngs were for rwd vehicle's. Lets see, hmmmmmm, tracker and sammi's are 5 on 5 1/2 too.
The one thing I always thought was strange was a 6 lug is a 6 lug. The center hole may be different, but I haven't found a different bolt pattern yet. From a 46 pontiac, to a chevy blazer, to a toyota truck.
Now, don't get me started on the fwd cars too.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
