New Tires!

Ha, Teaser Thread!

i emailed a guy on craigslist last night and on thursday i'm going to go look at/purchase a set of BFG MT's 33x12.5x15 for super cheap, about 95% tread left.

comes with free jeep/ranger wheels i think they are painted black.

now i just gotta get my body lift and get that done soon.

Make sure to check for dry rot, they might be a couple of years old.

Check the tire code first. 4407 for example is the 44th week of 2007. If they are for off roading then you'll be fine, city driving will find you lots of road noise and the noise gets louder as the tires get older.

hey guys. I got the tires and the fit fine and are good.but on the drivers side the upper a arm (im bad with suspension parts) rubs. but the passenger side doesn't. if I had better rims with different backspacing it would be fine. but can I just crank the bars up bit? they aren't maxed out or anything.
