154 rear wheel bolt pattern

Postby gtoner » Sun Jan 30, 2022 11:01 am

HI all! new to the board. Did some searching but cannot find any info on the rear wheel bolt pattern as I need to find/make spacers for the turf tires chains. What I measured seems to be 5 x 4.5. Is this correct? If so, I think used spacers from a Jeep might work. I know Hamilton Bob sells proper spacers but my budget is limited right now and used Jeep stuff is very attractive.

I believe the wrangler, compass, Cherokee, liberty and patriot all have 5 x 114.3 (4.5 in) wheels. I just remeasured my 154 and this seems to be correct. Just looking for confirmation. Also, I'm willing to fuss with the hub diameter.

Jeep went to 5 on 4 1/2 in 1987. The 1986 Jeeps were the last of the 5 on 5 1/2. Jeep spacers should work.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Jeep spacers do work. Just make certain you are using the correct bolts on Aluminum spacers.
If the holes are tapered, make certain you use tapered bolts or nuts. (are they called shoulder bolts?)

Why not just purchase the steel ones? This is what the originals look like. (and these are cheaper than the above)

They made two spacers. One is 2.5" thick and one is 0.75" thick. Make sure you get the 2.5" thick ones for the rear.
