New tires arrived

Well my new tires arrived this evening. Nitto Terra Grapplers 305/70/17
I'll get them installed tomorrow. Only thing bad about a Jeep is I need a trailer to get the tires from my Dad's house to mine.

Liked my Grapplers a lot, quiet as stock on the highway, good wear, good offroad in sand, not too deep mud, you'll like them. Good that you live in CA because they're terrible on rain soaked roads and snow.
Post up some pics when u get them mounted

I'm still looking at these and the General Grabbers. They both look awesome, just so damn heavy.

Can't wait to see yours mounted.

I live in LA not L.A. So lots of rain soaked roads here, no snow though.

I'll definitely gets pics up after mounting them. I also need to install my 18/59 springs(have 13/55 now with Terflex leveling kit). Waiting until my winch arrives on Friday, to just do it all at once.

Got them installed this morning. So far I love them. Definitely ride great and the extra width makes my Jeep feel a bit more stable. Now to just get the air pressure right. They measure right at 33 inches tall too.






Spare actually just fits. it rub just a bit on the bumper and the brake light just clears it. I have an adapter due in tomorrow, though.





Here's a couple of before shots
