Jeep Rim question (Rookie)

Hello. I just bought my wife a 1997 Jeep Wrangler sport. It has the steel rims that are a bit rusty. I found a set on line for sale, however I am not sure of the lug spacing and if it is an issue. My tires currently are 31x10.5 R15. The rims I am looking at are off a 2005 wrangler x rocky mountain edition. Can anyone confirm these two rims are compatable?

Enclosed are the rims I am looking to put on the 1997 Wrangler.

The bolt pattern changed in 2007, so they will not work without adapters.

TJ's used 5x4.5 and JK's use 5x5.

Edit: Oops, I just saw that you said 1997. They will work for your Jeep.

Yes, my jeep is a 1997, the rims I am getting are from a 2005 wrangler. So you are saying THEY ARE compatable? MEaning the 2005 is 4.5 bolt pattern as well?

Thanks!

All TJs (1997-2006) have the 5x4.5 bolt pattern.
