    Wheel adapters 5 on 4.5 to 6 on 5.5

    Hey guys. I need some input on a wheel situation I have.

    I have some 31" AT Tires on 16" black steel wheels that is 6 on 5.5 (From the Toyota T100 I had). I just got my TJ a few days ago and I want to put black 16" steel wheels (use AT tires I currently have) on it and some wheel spacers to get a wider stance.

    Would it pretty much be just the same, and okay, to buy wheel adapters to make the wheels I have now work? Two birds one stone???

    Thanks for your input!

    I would have no problem running adapters to do what you're trying to do, but, check and see if they make them. Having made many adapters before for several things, typically a 5 and a 6 hole pattern interfere with each other.

    It's easy to go from a larger or smaller 5 hole to another 5 and the same with a 6 hole circle, but mixing the two may not be possible.

    Agreed it's much harder to adapt a different number of studs than just a different size, you may end up with interference. I would start looking for spacers and see what you can find. Another option would be to have custom axle shafts made with the bolt pattern you want, but that will end costing you more than a new set of wheels. Another option is to find a set of TJ 16" wheels, to use the tires. Or just upgrade to a nice set of 15" wheels, and tires to match. 16" wheels are not really the best in most cases with TJs because there are less tire options, they cost more that 15", and they are usually only available in load D and E range tires which will make a TJ ride very rough.
