I believe these wheels / tires will fit my 1994 LJ78. I searched the forums and didn't find confirmation. So, I thought I should start a thread.

These tires are 5.5 inches wider than stock. With a +18 offset (.7 inches) the wheels would stick out 2 inches beyond stock. That would be right out to the wheel flairs but not beyond.

Can anyone confirm that these would fit? Are you running something similar?

Wheel Lug Pattern: 6x139.7 (6x5.5)
wheel width: 9
tire size: 34x11.50R18
offset: 18
Hub bore: 106.2

what-is-wheel-offset.jpg


Going from a 6in wheel to 9in would add 1.5in on either side of the wheel midline. A -40mm offset would shift the wheel 1.7in out from the center of the vehicle. So, the inner side of the new wheel and old wheel would be about the same with a -40mm offset.

So, is there room in the wheel well to accommodate a wheel that extends in toward the chassis 1.5 to 2 inches? Would the tire rub the mud flaps or something when you turn? Or do wider wheels have to go out?

Nope, front tire will hit radius arm at very least, and probably more. Basically, you need to keep inside of rim where it is. I have a -27mm offset 8" rim with 35x12.5 and even that is marginal.
