Well, I sold my lamb 1500 4x4 the other day and ordered mine JL 2-door sport (manual transmission) today. I have actually a spare set of the original (polished alloy) rims indigenous my ram that I"m wonder if maybe I deserve to put them on the JL at some point. I know that the bolt pattern is different (i.e. 5x5.5" / 5x139.7mm top top the ram vs 5x5 / 5x127mm top top the JL) and that the counter (19.04mm on ram vs 44mm because that the JL). The Ram has actually a 20"x9" pickled in salt whereas the JL has a 17"x7.5" rim.What thickness adapter need to I choose?It watch like even if i was may be to have actually a zero thickness adapter, the inside edge the the Ram"s tire would certainly be around 3/8" more out 보다 the JL"s tire and also the external edge that the tire about 1 5/8" further out... Uneven I"m misunderstanding wheel offsets...

Well, I marketed my ram 1500 4x4 the various other day and ordered mine JL 2-door sports (manual transmission) today. I have a spare collection of the original (polished alloy) rims native my lamb that I"m wondering if maybe I deserve to put them on the JL at some point. I recognize that the bolt sample is different (i.e. 5x5.5" / 5x139.7mm top top the lamb vs 5x5 / 5x127mm ~ above the JL) and also that the offset (19.04mm on lamb vs 44mm for the JL). The Ram has actually a 20"x9" rim whereas the JL has a 17"x7.5" rim.What thickness adapter have to I choose?It watch like even if ns was maybe to have actually a zero thickness adapter, the within edge that the Ram"s tire would certainly be about 3/8" more out than the JL"s tire and also the outer edge the the tire around 1 5/8" further out... Uneven I"m misunderstanding wheel offsets...
Seems favor you have actually a master on the offset numbers. Write-up pics the parts and procedure as you acquire the ram wheels bolted up, would be an excellent to see.

Thanks... I"ve never ever put different rims on a car where there can be an problem with clearance, therefore I"ve never ever paid any kind of attention come the wheel offset and also was not certain if I interpreted it correctly.I did an alert that the hub diameter to be slightly larger on the ram wheels, for this reason they should still fit on the JL. If it had been the other method around, ns assume that would be a trouble *if* the bolt patterns had actually been the same and also I didn"t need an adapter.Of course, because I will require an adapter, that"s going to put the wheels even further outboard. Simply from a structure standpoint, ns would intend that the minimum thickness adapter would should be 1" since they it seems ~ to every be made from aluminum and it looks choose 1 3/8" or 1.5" are much more common. I"m came to that this might put the tires a bit too far out.Currently, the tires ~ above those rims are LT275/65R20 (a 34" tire before wear), yet at this point, they are dry weather street tires since there is not much tread left ~ above them.

The original tires ~ above them to be 275/60R20 (a 33" tire). Return the current tires were 34" as soon as new, they can be closer to 33" as worn and also still fit, so i guess I could put castle on and also see how it would fit.
