Are Jeep wheels the correct bolt pattern?These are $100 and look like 15 x 8.5 to me.

Andrew, I believe Jeeps came with two different bolt circles. One was 4.5" , but I'm reasonably sure there are models with 4.75" BC, too. Search for 5x127 and see what pops up. A 15" diameter may be hard to find though.

I've got a set of Ford wheels, but I think they're 10x15 and the BC is 4.5". Only 50 bucks, so change your build to use 4.5" BC. wink

New steel wheels are like 50$ each, so I'm assuming you need cheaper than that.

Datsaniti's Jeep wheels are 15x8 5x4.5 and I haven't paid more than $10 per wheel. A set of wheel adapters puts you under $100 for a set. Knowing your builds, that's probably not cheap enough but it's a decent option.

We are married to the 5 on 4-3/4" pattern at this point.

Can you run bolt on bolt pattern adapters at the challenge?  I'm having a hell of a time finding good 5*100 cheap wheels for my Subarus.  But 5*114.3 i've seen numerous nice wide rims for Cheap!.  Post challenge I will just buy new rims in the right spec.  Bolt on adapters would be cheap if they are NHRA and Autox legal..

I don't think anything in the rules excludes them, and I have run them on other challenge cars no problem. I'm sure others have too
