I think the wheels are a bit funky, but that's still a sharp truck!

First off, sweet truck.

Secondly, the Grand Cherokee did change in after '98. Prior to the '99s the rims would interchange, 99 and after went ot a metric bolt pattern and will not interchange. Cherokees and Wranglers (at least up to the newest redesign, '06?) have the same bolt pattern. However, some (most?) Jeep rims won't interchange with the 4x4 Rangers due to the hub size.

Do you think you'll have problems rubbing on 10" wide wheels?

I was just remember how when my truck was just spindle lifted that when I switched to 10" wide, I rubbed like a mother...until I trimmed...and then I think I still rubbed a lot.

Honestly, no. I have so much clearance in the front it's not even funny. I have a good 2 inches at the smallest space. If it does rub, I can just cut these flares but I don't think I'll have too.

Update: We had a miscommunication on the Grand Cherokee, it's a 97. So there's no doubt that the lugs are the same. And I think we're just going with steel wheels. We don't want anything special because these are going to be on the mud-buggy and beat on and scratched like crazy. These would be just something I could re-clear when I'm ready to go to car shows or whatnot.

The bolt pattern will be the same, however the backspacing may be an issue. I'm not positive on Grands, but I know the Canyons had a lot more backspacing than my Ranger rims. If you are going with them though the Canyons can be had fairly cheap used and they look sharp. Also a lot of people with Rubicons are getting rid of the rims cheap. Both of those are 8" wide rims as well, the Canyons are only a 15", but the Rubi rims are 16s.
