32-33 inch tires

I am saving my pennies for tires. My Bridgestone duelers are almost down to their wear bars and I am thinking in the next month or so I am pulling the trigger on a new set of tires.

I take the jeep off road on trails a little, and drive on the beach a few times a year. I am not looking for a lot of road noise, my gobi rack is already enough.

Money is a big concern, I am kind of thinking of cheeping out on tires so I can move on to other mods. I have a teraflex leveling kit.

Treadwright Warden's 285/65/18 - $900 Shipped, + $150 Wheel Spacers $1050 - I like these because they are cheap, 33 inch, but don't like them because they look a little cheap from the picture online, and I haven't seen them in person, so it's a tough sell.

Cooper Discoverer AT/3 265/70/18 - $915 from Discount Tire. Love the price, I'm pretty sure forum members get another $50 off. The tire supposedly measures 32.6 inches, so that's OK. I think it's actually taller than some "33" sized tires. Like the tire look, but don't love it. Not sure if I'd need spacers in this size or not.

General Grabber AT2 265/70/18 - $1050 from Discount Tire. Very good price, love the look of the tire. Looks like a good tire for me. Also measures 32.6" Not sure if the Coopers or Generals are a better tire. I also like Generals because they sponsor a family member's desert race rig.

Falken Wild Peak 265/70/18 - $860 From Discount Tire. Crazy Cheap. I know they are well liked on here, but the look so boring to me. I also don't like some of the reviews that I have read when mud comes into play.

Cooper ST Maxx 275/70/18 - $1300 From Discount Tire. 33's Yeah!, I really like these tires, but the difference in price, I could almost buy a bumper, or a winch for the jeep. I'll also need spacers.

Goodyear Duratrac's - 33/12.5/15 + 15 in. Cragar Wheels Breaking the Bank here at $1500. Haven't Liked GoodYear Tires, ever, on any of my other vehicles, but people love them here. Hoping they really don't have a lot of road noise if I go this route. I don't want to spend this much on tire's but if it makes that much difference, then I can always save longer and get them. These tires don't actually measure 33 inches though.

If your jeep is a 2007 or newer I'd recommend looking at the Level 8 tracker in 15" instead of the Cragar. Cragar steel wheels will require a wheel spacer and a decent set of wheel spacers will run you $100.00 per 2. Also, there are some rebates on aluminum wheels that will get the package under $1500.00 if you purchase through our mail order department.

Give us a call if we can help you more. 1.888.459.4080. 15" Trackers will be back in stock in less than 2 weeks.

You could also try those small local tire dealers. U could try to bargain with them if u pay cash. Saved myself 300!

I've got the Cooper STT Maxx on my work truck and love em. Put 15,000 miles on them and are wearing at a good rate. They've been great in mud, sand, and high speeds on washboard roads.
