Hello, I'm wanting to replace my 275/45/R20 with some 18" and taller rubber, for better offroading and looks. Looking for a 5x120 bolt pattern has been challenging. The only set of 18" land rover wheels in my area are $1000, no rubber.

I found at a set of 255/70/18 Jeep Wrangler rims that are offered locally for a good price with 90% 112S M&S Bridgestone Dueler A/T for $600. These being 5x127, Are adapters worth the trouble and/or feasible?

From:

I see stock jeep wheels were commonly ET44.5, while the RRS is ET53.

Comparing the two wheels here shows me that I have some room to play with:

I found a cheap wheel adapter at 32mm thick, so If I change the New Setup's offset from 44 to 12, my Poke goes from 67.7mm to 83.3mm, ~15mm. which doesnt seem so bad.

I'm realizing that 32.9" is too big, but do I have the offset and adapter stuff correct?

There is some really good wheel/tire info in the sticky notes here. Not sure what year or model you have. If you have 4.2SC you are very limited to 18' rims. if you have the 4.4 you can fit 18' rims from LR3/LR4s. I found a real nice set of LR3 18" on Craigslist for $350. I thought there were also some BMW 18" that may fit the 4.2HSE but I cannot confirm which ones.

Yea, I had read the sticky about wheels. I talked to a shop today about my plan and turns out I had it backwards, the offset of the jeep wheels was not in my favor. The offset of ET40 found on the jeep rims is 13mm outward , not inward, compared to our stock ET53, and a 1.5" adapter would only make it worse. Just putting that out there in case anyone gets the same idea.
