Default 2015 Cherokee Sport rim problem...

Who can help with this dilemma...

I've purchased custom rims, but they don't fit my Jeep! I was told that they would fit my vehicle...they didn't!!...I later found out that the offset was wrong and that the rim was hitting the brake caliper...I am now forced to sell my rims because seller would not except for refund!...Is there any way that I can still use these rims and have them "adjusted" in any way??...I really love them and they are an x-mas/birthday gift to me!!

I heard that I may be able to use a spacer to customize...is this possible?...please advise...I want to keep and use my rims...HELP!

***2015 Jeep Cherokee Sport FWD***

***RIMS - 17 Black wheel/Rim 5x110 & 5x115 with a 42 mm offset and a 73 Hub Bore (Part # 122-7710B+42)


Thank You

Yeah you can use a spacer which essentially changes the offset of the rims. Spacers aren't really advisable though because running rims with the incorrect offset wears out your hubs faster.

Sell the rims, you're going to spend more on proper spacers and suspension wear than the rims are worth.
