BOLT PATTERN - 71 - J2000

I just picked up a 71 J2000 and in order to get it loaded on my trailer, I need to drag it out of a field and it has two tires that are so beyond shot they will not even come close to holding air even for 3 minutes. What bolt pattern are these wheels so I can see if I can find something that fits so I can get this thing on my trailer. Thanks in advance!

Are there actually holes that you can stick your finger in? If not you might try pumping them up. I have pulled many old trucks from long term resting places and found the tires will still hold air, if just for a few minutes.

One problem that sometimes occures is weeds, dirt or other foregin material interferes with the bead seal. As the tire sets flat for years the rim settles in the ground and material gets pinched in the bead area as it is inflated. try jacking it up and clearing it out before airing up.

Not my first rodeo pulling an old Jeep out of a field. The beads are broken and there are large slices in the tires........they do not hold air at all.

Any Jeep rim will fit (5 Lug). Nothing from the newer Jeeps, they are 5 on 4 1/2 , I think.
Bolt pattern is 5 on 5 1/2.
Ford truck rim will fit on the back, as the center diameter is too small
to fit over the hub in the front.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

Another issue that may crop up--

Depending on how long it has been standing, the brake shoes may be rusted
to the drums, making movement difficult, at best.

Tires with air in them will not solve this problem.

That's when you get the solid steel sledge hammer and hit the rim while it's on the truck, right around where the hubcap attaches. Mine weighs about 50 lbs so it's on my for sale pile since I broke my shoulder. I used it for traactor split rims. Even the handle is steel!
