What do you think I should do??

Ok,
I am going to be putting my truck up for sale in about 2 weeks.
(why 2 weeks and not know? because im waiting for my brother to rebuild his mustang and bring that out so i can drive his other car)
I will be buying a 4x4 ranger.
Right know, I have a 4x2 with new wheels and tires.(30inch)
When I get my 4x4, i am going to lift it and put 33in tires on it.
Now my question is, do you think i should sell my wheels and tires with my truck for an extra $1,100 and just buy another set of wheel and 33inch tires,
or..........
put my stock tires back on and and try to sell my tires seperate but keep my wheels for the 33's on the other truck?

whatch think??

I would put the stock ones back on and keep your baja wheels. Your truck will be easier to sell with a smaller price tag. And it saves you some hassle of getting new wheels. Plus you already got a set of wheels that looks good on a ranger.

Well not to burst your bubble...but unless you get someone to explicitly want your "other" wheels and tires, you'll never get an EXTRA $1,100 for your truck. It just doesn't work that way. You always get ripped off with resale value of your modifications that YOU think are worth money but other people might care less.

Put the stockers back on and worse case senario you sell your Baja's with tires on ebay!

Well at generation-egde they were saying to buy my 30in rubbers on my stock rims and keep the american racing rims for my 33's.
What you think?

I'd keep the AR's -- they're a good rim, will work well with the 33's, and you save all the hassle of buying other rims. I'd sell your 4x2 with the stockers on it.

Dang! You're getting a 4x4! I'm jealous...

I doubt anyone would give you the extra $$$ the extras are worth in the purchase price of the old truck.
