Things you need to take care before wheels interchange with the Jeep Grand Cherokee

Wheels are an essential part, as we mention earlier. Interchange wheels can affect positively or negatively.
So be careful; there are particular things you need to handle.

Wheel Size

The first and primary thing is the wheel(rim) size. Wheel size affects Jeep performance and impacts comfort, noise level, and fuel economy.

If the wheel size is large, the vehicle has more grip on the road and will improve stability, handling, and maneuvering ability, but the speed is compromised. And if the wheel size is smaller, it provides better acceleration and good gas mileage.

Wheel Bolt Pattern

The second thing you take notice of is the bolt pattern. Wheels bolt pattern is severely critical because it will determine which wheel will fit and which won’t.

Jeep Grand Cherokee I (ZJ) [1992 .. 1998] has 5×4.5 inches bolt pattern. And modified to a 5×5 bolt pattern in their next generations.

Any wheel has a 5×4.5 bolt pattern interchange with the Jeep Grand Cherokee I (ZJ). And a wheel that has a 5×5 bolt pattern can interchange with II (WJ/WG), III (WK/WH), IV (WK2), IV (WK2) Facelift, and IV (WK2) Facelift.

Wheel Offset

Wheel offset is another thing to take notice of. It’s imperative to get this right because a wheel with the wrong offset can cause problems in handling, traction, braking, suspension, and even in fenders and knuckle assemblies.
