IF i was gonna put FSJ wheels on my baby jeep what kind of adapter would I need?

If its even possible? I have a spare set of FSJ 1989 OEM rims and rubber for the wifes car, she drives the Caddy now so i want to repurpose the rims and tires on baby jeep (1988 wrangler) as I need new rubber and the chromed rims look like crap after 30 years...

I dont wheel anymore....possibly a well maintained forrest service road is the most abuse baby gets nowadays

what would I need? the baby's tires are 31X 11.5 and the OEM rims rubber is 31X 10.5

thanks

Doesn't the baby Jeep have a 5x4.5 wheel pattern? At least, iirc, that's the bolt patter that all my baby Jeeps had. If so, you would have to adapt from 5x4.5 to 6x5.5. Darn, sure miss having any type of Jeep, you lucky dogs'!

Easiest way is to look for a set of OEM 84 and up Cherokee aluminum wheels. Those should be a better buy the Wrangler wheels. They're 7"x15, can run 31's, no problem.
