wrong bolt pattern, adapters will be needed, but theyll push the rims into the same spot the stock xjs were.

what lift you got?

have you seen the prices of 17" tires?

I'm getting a 4.5" lift and I have a set 33,s I plan on putting on. Probably gonna cut out the fenders as well. How much will adapters cost you think? And the rims are five lug also and they still won't fit?

Cherokee has a 5 on 4.5 wheel spacing, Wrangler has 5 on 5 spacing. The bolt holes won't match the Cherokee studs.

Since you are in hiding I can only tell you that here in Tucson, AZ the cheapest 17" wheel is $70.00. It is a plain black steel wheel. The ones that look half way decent are over $150.00. None of them appeal to me though. That is why I got a set of 15's from a 1991 and put them on my 1999.
