Need help on selecting the rim for '00 WJ
 
I am in LOVE with the following set of wheels:

http://www.amazon.com/Enkei-Black-Ma...=18x8%22+5x127

The 18x8" and 5x127 seem to be fine.

But this is what bothers me:
offset-50mm with backspacing: 6.45"

Internet search/speaking to a tire store rep didn't help me.

Can someone please tell me if it will fit my WJ?

Much appreciated! :D

Actually that's very close to stock specs so you should be fine. You're only moving out less than a 1/4 inch toward the fender.

Thanks a million for responding....and for this great news!!!!I have been spending almost a week reading about offset and backspacing.....Even the tire specialists over here told me that they can only gimme a definitive answer after I purchase the wheel and they try it on my Jeep :lol:

Just get JK 18's. You can get a whole set without tires for under $300 if you scour CL.

18x7.5 45mm

I run 245/55/18 on mine, speedo's dead on. Thought about stepping up to a different size, but a nice UHP all season just came out not too long ago in that size, which I'm going to try out when these BFG's die.
