Exclamation I need tires + advice

total noob here,
looking for some good tires for cheap.
the Jeep is stock height. I have 31" tires on 15's right now.
I already blew one tire so I'm rocking a spare for now.

In addition. * I have no clutch pedal and I replaced the the master already. any suggestions let me know...

Good tires aren't cheap... I have Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's. Great tire! I have put it through lots of abuse.

Does your clutch get better if you pump it? If that is a hydraulic system you could have air in the line and need to bleed it.

Got my 32" km2s off CL, had maybe 300 miles on them. I got 5 with rims for $750.

Cl is great!

baby steps

@kdub I think I am going to check out CL for some offers...

@AZwrangler there is almost no clutch pressure, and stalls in 1st everytime.
Its to the point at which I have to start it in gear!

I replaced the clutch master clyinder, but I don't know the first thing about bleeding it...

^ Thats your issues. Needs bled for sure. I am unsure of how to do it but I am sure it's explained in the hanes or chiltons.

Check for air by pumping clutch, fluid good? Cap tight? Maybe a slave cylinder? Try the easy and or cheap things first. If you just did the repair you will need to bleed ALL the air out. I have the Goodyear s as well and love them. Hancook has a good cheap mud terrain as well

look it up in the Chilton's but if im not mistaken and someone please correct me if im wrong, to bleed your clutch you loosen your master cap and pump on the clutch, then tighten up and pump some more. repeat process until no air remains in the lines. But like i said double check that first.
