if they fit a Wrangler (YJ/TJ) then yes they fit your XJ.

Just to clarify wheels from a '07 - up wrangler jk wont fit xj's. But tj's and yj's wheels will fit xj's. The wheels that your looking at should fit.

I thought Suzuki's had the 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern? If that wheel does, then it wouldn't fit Cherokees.

Better make sure before you buy. Or have return privileges if they don't fit.

I just bought a set of wheels off of a 91 wrangler for my 01 cherokee. While installing them I noticed that the lug nuts don't go on nearly as far with the TJ wheels as they did on mine. I tried to do a rough count and it seems like around 10 or 11 full turns for the old ones and only 5 or 6 for the new ones. Does anyone know if this will be a problem or should it be safe to go ahead and run the new wheels? Thank you in advance.

Are they bottoming out or are they getting tight?

They are getting tight but I just wasn't sure if the 5 turns would let them grab enough threads on the stud to be safe.

I found a chart on tirerack.com that shows how many turns it is supposed to have but I still haven't been able to find out exactly what size of studs the XJ has to be able to look it up on the chart.
