Hello, I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty with factory 16x7 silver alloy wheels. They are not in good shape and I'd like to replace them. I'd like to get a set of factory 16x7 charcoal alloy wheels that came on some of the 2008-2012 Jeep Liberty models. Will they fit my 2002 Liberty? They seem to have the bolt pattern. Thx.

I’ve seen them on KJ’s before so the answer must be yes!

I had a KJ steel wheel for a spare for a while, so it works the other way around too.

As long as they are a 5x4.5 bolt pattern & about a 40mm - 44mm offset, they will work

The only difference I can see is that the 2002-2007 wheels have an offset of 41.3mm and the 2008-2012 wheels have an offset of 40mm.

Sorry, I'm not sure what that means.
It means they are 5 inched backspaced
5 inches , if you have a 7 inch wide wheel like Libertys have you have 5 inches from the hub area to the back, and 2 inches from the hub to front where tire mounts
