How do you measure bolt pattern? I have some wheels that I am curious if they will bolt up to the XJ, if I ever get one.

i believe it is center of bolt to center of bolt, as close to across as possible.

You could probably take it to a tire and wheel shop and they could tell you also.

Yup...so in the case of a 5 lug rim, you're measure across 2 holes, skipping 1. Try to either measure from far edge to close edge, or center to center (eyeballed)

by edge to edge, i don't mean the shortest distance, i mean measure from the same edge of each hole....does that make sense, like if i was measuring studs 16" on center, i wouldn't measure to the center of the stud cause there's not an edge there marking where the center REALLY is. So i measure from leading edge, to leading edge of the next one, and put that edge at 16...so therefore the centers are at 16....make sense?

Is there such a size as 5x4.25" or is my measuring tape just a little off?When I bought them they were bolting onto a 93' Mazda Navajo for those of us with the ability to look that stuff up that would be great.

It could be metric...

Why don't you just try and bolt one on and see?

Quick Google Search:
MAZDA NAVAJO 2WD, P/you 2WD & 4WD 1977-1995 6x139.7

So according to that, they are metric, and are 6 lug..... so no, they won't work...

Well I can shoot that down right away cuz there 5 lug. There must be another ,odel there or something. I would try them but I don't have a Jeep so it makes it hard. Wait! my Dad has a 96 Grand Cherokee will that work? I forget the code for it......ZJ WJ or somethin.
