Asked in Jeep Wrangler
Will Jeep wrangler rims fit your Jeep Cherokee?
No because the Jeep Wranglers bolt pattern is 5" and your Cherokee is 4.5". However if you find YJ or TJ rims they will fit on a cherokee. First, YJ's and TJ's are Wranglers. YJ Wranglers were made from 1987-1995 and TJ Wranglers were made from 1997-2006. The rims from these will fit a Cherokee as the bolt patterns are the same. However the rims from a 2007 and newer JK Wranglers will not fit.

How are mag wheels made?
Mag rims get there name from what metal they are made from. Magnesium! It's is a very interesting metal. It's very light weight, strong and cheap. At the right temperature it melts like any other metal however if you get it to hot it burns. Like friken crazy! Anyways mag rims are made by melting magnesium and injecting it into a mold. After cooling the rims are then tooled to finish their look and function.
