Default Rim Question

I sold my 17" Racing Dynamics RGS rims to my friend a couple of months ago. Well I might be getting them back because he's going through a hard time in his life. Since i will be getting my rims back and since i need new tires I'm thinking about mounting them on my 99 4x4 GMC Jimmy. The issue is I'm not really sure if they will fit on the Jimmy. Here are the specs

RD RGS Rims:
17X8
Lug Pattern: 5x120
38mm off set

Again I'm confused any help is welcomed.
TIA

Your Jimmy has a 5x4.75" bolt pattern. AKA 5x120.65mm.

The rims you're wanting to put on the truck are 5x120 correct?

Don't put them on your Jimmy.

That's a good idea. Even the slighest difference can mess things up!

But we'll see what others have to say. You may be able to get some adapters and go ahead and put the rims on.

Adapters are fine its just not recomended to bolt the rims straight on because they're not exactly the right size.

I know some don't like it, but I have that bolt pattern on my blazer and on my Camaro with no problems. Just thought i'd put my two cents in.
