Default 88 240 DL on ZJ Sawblades - 15x7"

ZJ Grand Cherokee Sawblades.

Theses suckers are heavy, feel like they're forged out of granite or something. But, they were $10/ea.

Tire stickers are way better than hand painting each tire....ugh.

30mm Spacers all around
185-65/15 front
205-60/15 rear

This is before I lowered the car.
Front suspension is bottomed out due to dead struts and the stock springs have to hold up a SBC.


Ultimately, I'd love to see if I can get a set of 15" 740 hubcaps to fit a dished 15x8 steel wheel.









I think I should paint the voids black.

16x8 ARE 398's with the centers milled out for open lugs.

Yep. ET+20. Rare bird there.

I had the center mounting "pods" machined off then the center opened just a tad to fit the iron mark caps nice and snug.

I would like some input on these wheels for sale locally. How would they fit and look on the 242? With adaptors and spacers of course.
Seller says they have 5 inch backspacing, Dont know how to convert that to mm offset. Bolt pattern is described as 4-3/4. Fits most GM cars.
Center cap says "ARE"
https://us.letgo.com/en/i/16x8-gm-ri...b-c4788bc1869d

Also have these local.
http://longisland.craigslist.org/wto/5831337090.html
I would like to go wider on the rim than the mercury wheel though.

And of course the trusty ol Salad Shooters.
These are off a 1987 dont know if they have a staggerd width. Seller says they "Match" and came off a 1987
http://longisland.craigslist.org/wto/5880096033.html

Any input would be great. Thanks TB

Looks like those first wheels are 16x8 with a 38mm offset.

The 1987 Salad Shooters should be a 16x8.5 square setup with a 32mm offset. I ran 27mm and 42mm spacers of my 242 with 205/50 Federal 595s which tend to run a little wide


If you have any more questions, send me a PM

I think these would look sick on a black car.
Do you think they can fit well? They seller sent me pictures. They look very clean.

If it makes you feel any better, my LM Reps actually weigh less than Real LM's.

Only the finest rustiest steelies for me. These are my new snows, normal tires are on gloss black steelies.

Can anyone tell me about this wheel set up? Like what it took to make them work? Looks like a newer steel wheel, what about the spacing?
