Exclamation Important wheel info

Just wanted to post that these Jeep wheels, even though everything I read said they would fit my ranger. They won't, bolt pattern is spot on, but the wheel won't go over the front hub, hub/bore hole is too small on this wheel. Unless I am missing something. I don't see wasting the time to machine it out. Any ideas other than sell them???
Thanks guys

ive heard you can put the ford wheels on the jeeps but not the other way around. if you want to keep them you might be able to find a shop to machine the centers for a decent price. if you were close id do it for you but thats not an option unless you want to ship them here. at that point you might just be better off selling them.

Thanks but selling is prob my best bet. Just kinda let down after researching it soo much before buying them.

Yeah the center hole for any 4x2 or 4x4 83-97 needs to be bigger. You'll have to machine or sell.

Feeling alittle better, sold them and doubled my money, can't beat that. Now onward search for some more 15" so I can get my tires. Wanting some decent ranger stocks, but can't seem to get my hands on them on CL. Weird thing on ebay is they sell only one wheel, buying four different wheels from four different people is just weird to me. Not understanding why they don't sell sets. Moneys tight, so a new set for $500 is outta the question.

Just thought it might help for the members to know about that particular wheel incase someone ws thinking of getting it.

Does any other ford product fit perfect?? Just throwin it out there.
