17" wheels on a CJ7?

I've been given a new set of tires for my '83 CJ7, unfortunately there was a mistake and I was given 35x12.5 R17's instead of 15's. Not wanting to look a gift horse in the mouth, and considering that the selection of 15" tires is getting slim, I'm thinking that moving to 17" wheels. Anyone else done this? Any thoughts on the subject (other than "yuck"?)

I'm not finding a whole lot of choice in 17 inch wheels with 5x5.5 lugs and a large hole for the hubs. Anyone know of any... or have some that you want to get rid of?

And 17 inch, 5 on 5.5 wheels are common. Buy some Trailready Bead Locks if you want the best. Or visit your local tire shop and buy some cheep ones. Virtually every aftermarket wheel will have a sufficiently large hole for your wheel hubs

Can't be done, those of us with CJ's are sending them to the scrapper as the 15" tire selection dwindles. Nobody makes tires for 15" anymore, any tires available are old stock and near dry rotted anyway.
