WTB: stock aluminum 5 spoke wheels 97-01

I'm looking to buy 4 or 5 (depending on price) aluminum 5 spoke design wheels that were on 97-01 cherokees. I'm looking for the light silver ones not the dark. It's probably a long shot that someone would be nearby, but if so I'm about an hour east of Pittsburgh.

Turns out, the wheels I had in mind are actually from Wranglers.... The spokes have more of a rounded design:

For the sake of your search you may want to know those wheels are called (at least in some circles) "Grizzly" wheels.

Re: WTB: stock aluminum 5 spoke wheels 97-01

I don't have FB which limits a lot of my online interaction, but my dad does LOL...been using his account to check local sources with FB marketplace. I have a guy that has a set but he hasn't sent good pics yet..these are for a DD so I want them to be in pretty good shape. Unfortunately it's looking like they might only have been made 97 to 01 so it might be slim pickings as they say

Re: WTB: stock aluminum 5 spoke wheels 97-01

Just a thought here, but have you looked into the Wheel Collision Center? They repair/refurbish/sell alloy wheels of all types, including for Jeeps - I had a couple of my own wheels "straightened" (got refurbished ones, they took mine as cores) there many years ago, worked out great.

You can buy wheels, or do the "exchange" (what I did). Here's their catalog pages for Cherokees and Wranglers:

XJ: https://www.wheelcollision.com/store/JEEP-CHEROKEE.htm

Wrangler: https://www.wheelcollision.com/store/JEEP-WRANGLER.htm

They show the Grizzly wheels as available for $170 each, or $145 each with core. Since you're looking for good condition, getting a set from these guys
(or maybe getting a worn set and using them as cores would mean you'd end up with a set that looks "factory fresh"...

Thanks, I think I may have hit their site when searching blindly, but the prices were way too much. It all worked out though... I got a set from a guy about an hour away earlier. I found him through FB marketplace using my dad's account. They are in pretty good shape I'd say 7/10. I'm going to clean them up well then decide if I should refinish them or just leave them as is. I paid 100 for all 4, so that was the best part!

I think I've got a couple sets of those kicking around. I'll look here in the next day or two for you. If you're still looking for a set let me know, and we can work something out. I'm probably an hr and a half west of Pittsburgh so not terribly far and wouldn't be against meeting you halfway. If you're going to the SEC CRAWL I could bring them.

Im on the other side of the state from you and would trade the ones on my 99 for a set of 16 5x4.5 pattern (zj) wheels. For the right deal id trade the 80% Nokian A/W A/T load E tires that are on them (would need equivalent 16s).

Thanks, but all I have are the stock steel wheels that are on it. I actually found a set of wrangler "grizzly" wheels that I'm going to put on it as soon as I get cash to buy tires for them. I updated the thread a few posts back.
