What vehicles share the samurai lug nut pattern?

Does anyone know what other suvs and cars share the 5x5.5 bolt pattern and how Do you read the tire size on a vehicle? My tires are P205/74R15 I believe. I'm looking to run a bigger wheel like 17's or 18's with a little more width and bit more backspacing. I'm thinking an inch more tire and and inch more backspacing but staying with the 205 tire height. That tire size fits perfect in my wheel well.

Heep CJ's. My rims are off a CJ-5. Steel waggies, picked them up for next to squat.

Early 80's F-150's had them as well.

the tire size is molded into the sidewall of the tire. Yours are most likely 205/75-15.

The 205 isn't the tire height, it's the tread section width. The 75 is the sidewall height expressed as a percentage of the tread section width. Are you saying you want to go with a 17 or 18" rim and keep the same sidewall height as a 205/75-15 tire?

Visit this link for an EXcel spreadsheet that will allow you to do some h andy calculations for tire size and rim size and that kind of thing.

Daxe thanks for the info. I'm actually thinking about going with a 17 or 18 inch rim but would like to keep the overall height of the tire that I'm running now. plus I would like to go about inch wider.

Just be careful of some of the early Jeeps, their rims would not clear a disc brake.
