Hi, My name is Karin. I quite possibly have made a terrible mistake and a friend suggested I find a Jeep forum. Since I have a Wrangler you look perfect.
I bought my 22 yo mildly autistic son a Wrangler. He knows about it but won't see it until mid Feb. I've been told I paid the dealer too much, that with the very wide 33" tires it could be deadly if I don't get them calibrated, that the fenders are not street legal, you can imagine more. Yet a couple of Jeep loving guys (who don't own Jeeps) say this car is awesome, just need to get it looked at.
I could use any advice because, well, I'm a gal. I realize a lot of women know a lot about Jeeps, just this one doesn't. I can run a large laser for our hobby company but just don't have the luxury of time to figure my new Jeep machine out alone.

No accidents on record
hard top, tinted windows
Biggest concern is how squirrelly it is at slow to moderate speeds. It sways back and forth as if it was on slick roads. Husband not happy I bought it (yes, I did it w/o him knowing, my bad).
I have found that we have a good tire place here that specializes in lifted vehicles and vehicles with oversized tires. I will be going there to get it looked at. I could use some advice as to what to ask, what to know before I go, etc.
One more thing...my son hasn't gotten his drivers license yet. Yes again, my bad for getting this as a starter car.
Thank you in advance...
