    not sure about the jeep gladiator, but on a cj, the 4" center hole would be too small to fit over the hubs.

    I agree, but the wheel in the picture looks like a larger center hole than 4"
    Might be worth contacting the manufacturer to confirm.

    If I remember right the gladiator hub size is the same as a CJ.

    I wonder if those are highway vehicle use rated.

    I don't think those will work they look like hay wagon wheels which are likely .25" too small of a center hole.

    I'm certain they're not. They specifically say so about the tires that are referenced.

    I'm pretty sure those have a large enough center hole to fit our CJs. I've seen nearly identical wheels, and 8" wide versions, on numerous Jeeps over the years. Similar (older) implement rims often have 4 square holes in the area between the bolt circle and outer hoop. These were for carriage bolts to attach wheel weights.
    I've driven some Jeeps on the road with the ag rims and they ran true. You'd never know they weren't DOT rated. The 8" versions used to be common before wagon wheels came to the market. The rib-tread implement tires used to be common for sand tires on Jeeps (including my Tux) back before there were choices other than "street" tread of " snow" tires. We wore out at least one set to the threads, mostly road use.

    At my local mechanic shop for farmers, I wanted to buy tires for my Jeep but the manager explained that they were not agreed for speed... Tractors only. Maybe same with these rims ?

    I’ll bet they won’t. I just measured some wheels I have here, and there’s just over 1/4” between the edge of the center bore and the edge of the lug holes. Just going by an eye’s measurement, the ones that are linked look more like 3/8+”

    The real question is, do they make 'em in 16"??

    It says the center hole is 4 inches. My hubs are 4 inches. They would need trimmed a little. I might try if they were 16 inch...

    Wonder if they've got the "safety beads" you see on pass car rims?
    And are tubes required?
    But yes, love the price!

    That's a flashback. I remember getting implement tires from Dick Cepek back in the day.

    Stopped in at the Greenville Agri Supply today, bought a trailer tire and rim.
    Pleased to find they mount them free if you buy both from them!
    The implement wheels look nice but no safety bead like pass car and trailer tires have.
    I would guess it makes em easier to mount tires on, especially by hand.
    And i didn't think to ask if tubes were required, anyone know if tractors require tubes?
