As helpful as this site has been with a wealth of knowledge wheel spec and fitment is not one of those. I have a 94 80 wanting to change wheels to 17 inch. So in my research this site and other lots of confusion . So my plan is fjc 7.5j×17et15 knowing I have 8j×16et14 wheels now. As I see post about offset ,backspacing and the need to use spacers. With the above wheel spec total track width will be reduced by 13mm- 1/2 " and backspacing reduced by a 6mm- 1/4" am I missing something???

Thanks but that's where I'm confused at everyone say 0 offset but a 4- 5/8 backspacing on an 8 " wheel . And I know et14 is a 14mm offset. But maybe I'm wrong 0 offset would be 4" backspacing there directly coralated ???

I don’t know who has said that, but the factory FZJ80 16x8 wheel has 4-1/2” backspacing, 0 offset.

Raining like crazy ill have to measure that I could see it be 4-1/2 to either side on outer lip of wheel meaning 0 offset I appreciate ur input trust but verify.

So can anyone confirm fzj80 wheels are stamped 8j×16et14 or am I working with misinformation???
Well misinformation sucks factory fzj wheels are in fact 0 offset . 8j×16 et0 so back to a wheel search I'd like 7.5 or 8 ×17 with 0 offset any suggestions. I have 94 fzj 80 1 inch dobinson lift wanting to run 285 75 17 yokohama g003

I wouldn’t lie to ya.
I had no question that u wouldn't knowing tell me a lie but seeing is believing . But internet specs say 1 thing and the truth is as u said 0 offset it measured that way and stamped on the wheel that way. I wish we had more wheel options not really finding what I want not a fan of spacers.
Thanks for the information.

There are a TON of wheel options for the 80’s bolt pattern.
