35's no lift

Will my AEV pintler wheels with 35" tires on them clear for road use (about 50-75 miles) so that I can drive to the shop where I am going to install my lift? I don't want to put miles on the stock wheels and tires because I would like to sell them.

Thanks oh wise and wonderful fellow Jeepers

Not 100% sure but about 90% sure you'll have rubbing issues with more than 4.5" of backspacing and 35s. Are you trying to mount these without a lift first? Not a good idea.

Well after the lift is hope not, since these are the wheels AEV designed for the wrangler and the tires they recommended
The only real concern at this time is whether or not they will rub at stock height for a ride down the highway to the shop.

As long as you don't make quick turns that causes the Jeep to roll, sharp turns, or go over any curbs, you should be fine just driving it to the lift shop. The only problem I could see is it may rub the inner fender during turns so make sure to make wide turns and listen for the tire hitting the fender

Agreed. You definitely hear and feel it in the jeep if the tires make contact.

DIY screw paying some one to work on your rig.

is it a 2 door or 4 door. the two doors can clear 35s if you cut the lip off the fender flair.

If you dont wanna do it yourself...what is the issue with just taking the jeep to the shop with the stock tires on, and then put the new ones on at home when the jeep is done?

I am doing the lift myself.

I take it the garage is a little ways from where you are if you are worried about the miles being put on the tires?

EDIT: Just saw your (50-75 miles) comment

50 miles or 150 miles is no biggie. The life span of those tires is big enough not to worry. The people buying them won't either. If the shop is that far, I would consider finding another. If its across town then there is no reason not to just drive it over and do it all there.

Rubi take offs are very common. Honestly I think you'll be hard pressed to get more than $800 for them even with sensors, mounted, and being new. They are just to common. Most people do exactly what your doing by taking them off new and getting bigger/better wheels and tires. Good luck with the sale though.

I just watched 3 sets of them on eBay, all went for 1250 and at least 200 shipping where do you think I came up with the price? I'll take what I can get but I'm gonna try and get what everyone else on eBay is!

If you get that price, more power to you. You will have to undertake a tremendous hassle trying to ship them. You are also dealing with Paypal instead of a face to face cash transaction. Those eaxct tires can be purchased from Sam's Club for $1140 mounted and balanced, free rotation, and hazard insurance, as well as a manufacturer's warranty. On top of that there are always manufacturer's rebates on top of that.

That being said, I bought my first set for $650 with 5k miles on them. I just bought a second set from a 2012'er with less than 1.5k for $800. I wouldn't pay more than that and miss out on a tire warranty.

Well this got off topic real quick. I'm selling them I'll list em on eBay when they come off and if they don't sell ill drop the price until they do, I'm not exactly in a huge rush to get rid of em or anything.

Ok and do those $1140 tires also include wheels? How about pressure sensors? I'm not here to argue what someone will or won't pay. If you got yours for that more power to you. If someone on this forum was local and wanted to pick em up is Probly do $800 just to help out a fellow Jeeper. I'm not here to take a bath. I've got A shower for that! If someone wants em they'll pay, if they don't they won't. Simple.

Now back on topic Dammit!!

Those wheels are so common and sold so cheaply online that they have no real value. The TPMS are not necessary. As far as on topic, your question has been answered. Don't you have to give a percentage or something to EBay? You can sell them on CL for free.

Yes you do. Ebay AND Paypal are both gonna take their share but that's not the really bad news, it's shipping. The last time I tried to ship a 255/75/17 tire and wheel the shipping was $100 per tire/wheel. Your looking at easily $500 or more for your set shipped. Still worth it?

Tire shops send freight and have other ways of shipping for free to you or at a very low cost. You don't have that option as Joe public.

Off topic but "The TPMS are not necessary" what's that mean?

Which part of "not necessary" don't you understand? Without them a light will stay lit on your dash. With a programmer you can set the level to zero and the light won't come on. It also means you will need to check your own air pressure just as drivers have done since the first inflatable tires.

The valve stems in each wheel are also Tire Pressure Monitors. If the pressure in any tire goes below a preset amount it will trigger the tire pressure warning light.

A programmer, such as Superchips, will allow you to turn off the monitoring system if you wish and then you can go to regular valve stems instead of the expensive monitoring ones without worrying about the warning light staying on.

I sold two sets of Rubicon take-offs this year , both with no sensors. Got $1,000 for each set, could have been priced higher but sold in one day both times. Had the 4x4 shop handle them and threw them a few $.

Those AEV wheels have the perfect amount of offset and tuck into the fenders nicely with minimal lift. I would test fit them and drive around the block. I have a strong feeling you will be fine on the road. Mine don't rub off road with a budget boost and 35 inch km2s and the AEV wheels. you will need to trim the factory rock rails though.
