  • WTB 33" Tires

    Update: Found some!

    I've got a 5.5" lift to install, and no tires. I need a cheap set of 33's to get me by for a little while. 15"-17" preferred, but I'll even go 18" for the right price. Whatchya got?

    - 1988 XJ Base - I don't actually drive it. It just sits in the driveway while I throw parts at it.

    - 1990 XJ Laredo - Old and busted, but it'll get the job done!

    - 1994 XJ Base 2-door - Where'd the other doors go?

    - 1996 XJ Sport - It's red. What else can I say?

    - 1997 XJ Country - My wife wanted something "pretty".

    - 1998 XJ Limited - Cheap and leathery.

    16" is the biggest wheel I would do on a 33" tire. I've always been told to keep a the ratio least 50% on the rubber side.

      I think 17" is fine. 18" is pushing it, but it'll work in a pinch. How many new Jeeps are running 17" wheels on 33" and under tires out there?

      We'll see who's mall crawlin' when I chop up the 2-door for portals and 40's. =P

      JLU Rubicon take offs come to mind.

      Yea, I've been on the lookout for some factory JK or JL take-offs. This is really just a cheap temporary solution until I've got cash to buy new. I love the factory mags, but they won't fit with my planned steering, so I'd like to go ahead and order new beadlocks and call it good.

      How much I have some at the house that would be free of charge. Let me check tonight.

      I picked up a set of 16" wheels and tires with about 30% tread left for $300. I still need a spare though!
