Any rim that'll fit a Jeep will fit an Eagle.

To add to this, most Jeep rims have a bit more of and offset than the Eagle rims so they stick out more (and give a really nice looking stance). The front axle is wider than the rear by about 2-3", so if you wanted to get 2 wheel spacers for the rear it would look even nicer.

Most Cherokee rims fit. If I recall, there were one or two factory Jeep rims that had a problems on the Eagle. It's 5 on 4.5". Standard 15" wheels, 6" or 7" width I think. Width may have varied a little by rim style.

'84 up Jeep Wrangler, Cherokee or Comanche 2wd rims are skinny like the Eagles.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
