So I find myself in predicament. The 04 wrangler I bought has 15x7 American Racing (Bajas)wheels without a matching spare, so I find a site online has a sale price of $94 plus handling, free shipping, great deal. The kicker, out of stock and on backorder for what I am told is going to be 2 months!
So.....??? Do I now throw a different wheel on, I think not......Guess I go looking for a used one or pay out the @s for one.
Just frustrating, thanks for the place to vent. Any dealers have here have one to help me out.
Thanks for the reply, its a good thought. So I could get the 15x8 now if it was available and it would fit my same tire size? 33x12.5 15? I kinda like the size, dont know if I need any bigger. Checkin around now for my original desires with any luck a dealer from here can help.
You know what, you are right. I think they are the x8s. x7s are the specs the guy I got it from told me, now that I am learning and finding info for myself I think you are right. I am going to measure myself, no tell tale signs. If you want look at my intro under New to Jeep fever for a pic, maybe you can tell me with your trained eye.
No problem Glad you figured it out. Sorry the right ones are on BO as well... Fill out your Jeep profile and it makes it easier for everyone to see what you've got... As far as a spare goes, do you have no spare at all now? Check ebay, CL etc, for a used wheel and you can put on the tire you want. You can run a 33x10.5" spare if you want to lighten the load. Do you have a tire carrier? If not a 33 is really gonna stress your hinges on the tailgate unless you do some modding.
Yeah the guy left the original spare on with the 3rd brake light.its killin me to have a pretty tuff lookin rig with a sissy tire, hence my dissapointment with B.O. I am now looking at ebay and such. I will work on my profile. Again this is an awesome site with so many knowlegable Jeepers, my new addiction.
I would recommend getting a tire carrier as well. I had a 35 on my tailgate and now that I put on the tire carrier, the tailgate still barely opens without the tire on it. I wish the PO wouldve taken some precautions..just a heads up
I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family, I love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it has to come through me, that should be all of our attitudes, cause this is America
