They have some 17s & 18s in the 5-127 but they are dual bolt pattern wheels, they use that center cap to cover the unused holes.

does that mean they can be used but just aren’t as sturdy? I’m sorry, brand new to all this stuff lol

Never used them, I assume they'd be engineered to hold up well, just makes them easier to sell for more vehicle applications. I prefer exposed lug nut type wheels though, but I'm ancient lol.

What exactly tells me a wheel is hubcentric? Is it the bolt pattern or is there another measure of fitment that comes into play?

The Jeep hubs are 71.5mm, it's a raised flange that your Jeep wheel fits over. If your wheel has a 71.5mm hub bore then it's hubcentric.

Many aftermarket wheels have oversized bores so they can be used on many more vehicle applications.

Hub bore size is usually listed in the manufacturers wheel specs for a given wheel. If not, you should be able to find that out by contacting the vendor or wheel company.

Two questions, if I may:

1. So is it true then that you CANNOT use a wheel with a hub bore smaller than 71.5mm?

2. Which smoked LED tails are you using?

Yes, that's true. It would be like trying to stick a 1/2" socket drive into a socket hole for a 3/8" drive socket - the drive hole is too small for the drive.

Thanks this is helpful. On the flip-side, I assume you can use a hub bore greater than 71.5mm; correct? Is there anything worth knowing about this situation? Is it less stable, are there ways to basically "close the gap," etc.?

Yes this can be done and is the much more common situation when using after-market wheels (vs OEM). I would recommend getting a spacer for this situation. Personally I would only use hub-centric wheels but there's lots and lots of people that have gone the lug-centric route and are happy. Here's a very high-level overview from reseller Quadratec:
