Hey guys -
As my family grew I sold my beloved 97 TJ 4.0 with a 5 inch lift, 33's, etc... to accommodate three kids instead of two.
I picked up a 2010 JK Unlim. Sport manual w/ only 10k miles on it from an old man.
My question - the only mod plans I have at this point are to put a four point frame mounted roof cage and yakima rack for my creek boats and skis.
The wrangler tires appear to have about 75% tread left. I'd like to lift it down the road but we're looking to relocate and buy a new house - so I'm pinching pennies.
Is it worth trading out the Goodyears for a better snow option? We live on top of a mountain. I once used my old jeep to pull a friends Discovery out of a ditch on our driveway.
I've read so many posts about larger tires on stock rims - can someone simplify the largest size tiresomeone would want to go with and be comfortable without modding at this point? ... without overspending with hopes of lifting and modding in a couple of years? Or a specific tire?
Or, should I just keep the Goodyear's and hope they climb in the snow like my old 33's?
Thanks guys. (and gals).
