    Hey all.. have a question.

    I have a 97 TJ with 15" rims. Would 2016 JK 17" rims bolt on properly?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the site.

    Don't think so. 2016 JKs are 5 x 5 bolt pattern. I think the TJs are 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern, or 5 x 4. Either case, they won't fit unless you want to use adapters.

    Welcome! Open the attached link from post#3 to wheel adapters sold by Quadratec to install 5x5-inch wheels onto Jeeps with a 5x4.5-inch bolt pattern. Installing JK wheels can give your TJ a new look and wider track but make sure wheel adapters can pass your DMV or inspection.
