'87 Trooper II Wheel Help

Postby tpuck » Sun Mar 01, 2020 11:17 pm

Ok I have looked around and am not able to figure this out. I am looking at some new wheels for my '87 Trooper II. I found some that are 16" diameter, 8" wide, offset -6, backspacing 4.25, 6 on 5.5 bolt pattern. Will they work on my trooper or will they rub when I turn? They have 30.6x10.5 tire on them, which is slightly wider than I want, but will that all work?

Thanks much

Second question, what is the offset and backspacing needed to not have the wheels stick out really far? I would like to run 235/85r16. Any help is much appreciated.

Do a search. There is an entire thread on tires that will fit the first gen trooper and also mods needed for larger ones.

Good Luck

I'm looking at these https://www.discounttire.com/buy-wheels/unique-297 in 16" or these https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/pro-comp- ... WF-97-6783 but one talks about offset and the other talks about backspacing. I'm confused...
