Fall is here, winter is coming

Last year I bought my 95 yj 2.5l and it was a chunk of crap, since I have done lots of work to get it to run right and pass emissions, I have a new supertop on it and a fresh 2.5 rubicon express lift. So I am excited for the winter to test out my jeep's capability. I am no stranger to jeeps, I have had three but this is my first wrangler and although it is fairly crappy it is my favorite, it runs and drives well. I do however have one major dilema, my 30x9.5 bfg's are wore out, and yes I can afford tires but I want rims at the same time, so should I wait awhile longer or should i just put some 31x10.50s on the stock jeep wheels and get wheels later.

Depends on how much your willing to send at one time . Me personally would buy the tires now and the rims latter because I wouldn't want my brand new set of rims in all that snow and salt and crap!

I ran 33x11.5-15 on stock rims for years.
