Wheels from a Jeep Wrangler?

My mom is going to trade her Jeep Wrangler in for a Mustang. It has 17 inch rims with 31's on it, and she said if they won't replace the tires on the Mustang for new ones, then she would put her old tires on the Jeep and then sell the tires. I'm just wondering if they would fit on my truck. Here are the wheels:

Found someone on craigslist selling these for $100. Would these work on my 2003 Ranger Edge 4x2 with 11.28 inch rotors?

if its a JK model they will not fit but those are like 6 lugs. and those look like YJ or earlier so they should fit fine and most jeeps run a 3.75 to a 4.00 inch back spacing they should fit just fine.

YES they will fit. My Mickeys are from a Jeep Wrangler. They are 3.75" backspace.

The center bore on TJ wheels are too small. Be careful, most stock TJ wheels have 5"+ of backspacing. The TJ axles are wider than Explorers even. Aftermarket is a different story.

Today must be official old thread revival day... Most stock Wrangler wheels have around 5 backspacing. An aftermarket "Jeep" wheel and an aftermarket "Ranger" wheel are the same thing.

Yes, I used the search function. Doesn't make sense to me to start another thread about a subject that may be beat to death. I haven't been around Rangers too long.

I am going to see if the seller will let me test fit a wheel to my truck. I'll get them if they do. I want something decent looking to mount regular radial tires on when I go on long trips (which lately are becoming more common for me). I don't wanna wear out my current tires.

The Jeep wheels in the picture will set in (closer to the truck) .5-1 inch more than stock Ranger wheels, not sure if that's enough to have clearance issues, but its something to think about. When you test fit the wheel, use one with a tire on it. The wheel itself will not rub in places the tire would.

i know my steel wrangler rims set "in" a little more than my factory alloys, it doesnt affect anything. i measured the backspacing once, think it was 4-3/4.

According to these two post on JeepForum.com the wheel has at least 5 inches of backspacing. They appear to be "Grizzlys" which have 5.5 inches of backspacing.
