How Should I Get My Tires to Wal-Mart?

So I did a dumbass thing. I have to take my tires to Wal-Mart tonight to be mounted on rims. Now because they're 31" tires and my Jeep technically shouldn't be fitted with those size tires, I have to take the wheels off my Jeep and take the tires over and remount the wheels myself.

So I jack the Jeep up, take off the wheels, roll them in the driveway and go... "How the heck am I going to take 8 mounted wheels over to Wal-Mart?"

What's at my disposal...
  • 2001 Ford Mustang
  • 2010 Nissan Altima
  • Wheelbarrow
  • A straight shot down the road to Wal-Mart
  • An Old English Sheepdog
  • Rollerskates
  • A Loose Ford 8.8 Axle

so have at it, how do I get my tires to Wal-Mart?

(and before anyone asks why Wal-Mart, it's because I have very few other options, the one shop by me keeps backing out, I need them done tonight, Wal-Mart is cheap, and the service department there has been EXTREMELY helpful before which I can detail later)

well if you could get the tires off the rim and just bring the rims they would fit in the altima

1. Jack up the Altima

2. Remove wheels from Altima

3. Attach 1 set of your wheels onto Altima

4. Put remaining wheel/tire set into Altima via trunk and backseat

5. Go to Walmart and get tires mounted

6. Come home and get a royal ass chewing from the parents when they realize they are rollin on 31s

fold down the back seat in the altima. between that and the trunk you should be able to fit 8 31 inch tires.

i like the idea of just driving the jeep there, jack it up, take the wheels/tires off, and take them in. Problem solved.

or you can mount them to the spare axle, and 'walk' the axle down there as if your one of the loggers trying to 'walk' a log floating in water

Load 2 tires at a time in the altima and make 4 trips.
