Exclamation in need of tires and rims

well, i currently have 33'' with a 3.5'' lift, and i keep putting $30 of gas in it every 3 days, and i can't go past 60-65, so i'm wondering if anyone knows where i can find cheaper and small rims and tires for better gas and miles, anyone have any ideas or for sale? let me know asap... : thumb:

Local classifieds. I have some stockier sized tires and wheels but your probably no where near me considering USA is a pretty big place.

Edit: saw you're in Mississippi

I think the size is 5 on 4.5 x 7", with about a 3" back space, some one will come along and tell the right size.
The thing is they don't have come from a jeep, they can come from a lot of other cars and trucks as long as they fit, and that was a common size for Ford cars and Dodge Cars and may be Dodge P/Us.

Too bad you're not in MA I'd trade you in a second. My tires are way too small.

Tires and wheels

Ckeck out the tire and wheel shops in your area. You can usually get a full set of take off's cheaper than you can buy a set of tires for.
