By 0p you mean the wheels are +0mm offset? Those would fit fine as the 6mm difference wouldn't effect it at all... Plus you're moving the wheel out too... May foul on the guard depending how low your car is (I have to roll my guards with 17x8's but my car is on grey pedders springs with sportsryder lowered shocks...)

All AU onwards wheels will be a +38ish offset and these will not go one... This includes most other 5x114.3 wheels for things like mazdas and toyotas and such...

Cheers,
Tim

i would say so the bloke im emailing about these wheels is a idiot.. in one email he writes pre au will fit cherokee wheels but will stick out by 24 mm and then 10 minutes later he emails me saying that the offset is OP which is 19 mm further in and would not fit, so im a little freaking confused.. i just want to put a set of jeep cherokee sunraisers 17x8 on a xh standard height. the stud patterns are the same just worried about offset

Easier to get him to measure the back spacing then and easy for you too measure the back spacing from your hub face to the upright...

Soon sort the s**t out...

Cheers,
Tim
