Default Wheel and Tire Sizing Question.....

I just won an auction for some Mint Black 16X8 CRAGAR SOFT 8 JEEP CJ7 WHEEL 5X5.5 SET OF 4.


What would be a good tire for them? Good street mild off road tire, nothing crazy mostly street use.

Thanks!!! and here they are, Got them for $100!

The bolt pattern is correct but the backspace may be a little too high. I can't tell you if they will clear your brakes. These wheels have some issues clearing brakes on some vehicles and the only real way to know if they will or not is to test fit them.

How is there a way to make these fit? Like how can I tell if these fit? Isn't there a chart or a manufacturers rating?

According to my guide your rear shock makes it difficult to fit wheels with a backspace higher than 4.5". Some people choose to run bolt on spacers but we do not recommend it.
