I am seeing ridiculously cheap deals on almost new Jeep Gladiator tires/rims near me - tires are usually Dueler 245/75/17. I have asked about fitment in various forums and am getting conflicting answers. I've been told by some that "Gladiator rims won't fit anything but a Gladiator". That just doesn't seem right. (??) I would be putting these on my 2006 Commander. Assuming they fit, I'm thinking I'll need a 1.5" spacer. I have very little knowledge when it comes to sensors though...would hope to use the new ones as my valves/sensors are either leaking or corroded. Anyone know about sensor compatibility? I am really hoping to hear from someone that has made this exact swap, but would love to hear from the experts (I've heard from the guessers) :) Thanks.

@RandyLHall Welcome to the forum! It looks like the Gladiator wheels have the same lug pattern as the Commander, so they will go on. However, the stud size is different and I don't know how much that affects the compatibility.

Sorry I can’t help, but I would like to know the answer as well. I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing.

I have JL wheels on mine. Same deal. If you do the math 14mm is .55in and the 1.5 means 17 threads per in. 1/2 x 20 is .5in and 20 threads per in.

You will have yo use your stock lugnuts. Which are different than than the newer ones. I havent had any issues with tightness or anything else in 7.5k miles.
