I run them, but am saving for a lift. I have been able to get anywhere off road within reason. I have BF goodwrench and they are nice

If you are eventually getting a lift then dont go get really expensive tires to fit on stock. Save the money and wait till you lift it and get bigger and better tires

As of now i can not afford it! Im only a sophomore in high-school. They are brand new tires from the previous owner, still have lots of tread. Gonna let them run down, then when i need new one ill get some. Cannot wait for that day!

See mike and I agree!

You can sell those new ones you have for more than used ones will cost you. pick up some used 31s so it doesnt look funny, and then save up for new ones. I am in highschool too, so I know how you feel. get a job

Anywho, you could easily sell those and make some cash. You could grab 31" tires.

I think my Yokohama Geolander ATs were $450. For some reason the price has gone up since I got them, but you can check them out here
Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

They aren't very aggressive, but I'm keeping my jeep timid until I can do it exactly how I want the first time. I rushed things on my YJ, and it became a huge headache. The tire is also wearing really well. I wouldn't be surprised if they went 70k miles.

Please don't get 2.5" of body lift. Do yourself a service and get a 2" spacer lift and don't go higher than 1.25" for body lift.

I love my duratracs! They've got me though everything I have thrown at them so far and I can't wait to see how they do in the snow. My neighbor just put some 31x10.50x15 on his. Ill try to grab a pic tomorrow.

Do this. I'm in high school too, you can afford some used tires off of Craigslist! Jobs eat your time but the money sure is nice!

I can give you a GREAT visual... since mine is red with 2" BB...AND 31's... AND no doors... AND no top.....AND same rims



AND.... if you are thinking of what the rims would look like in black.... Rustoleum Bedliner works GREAT!




What am I saying? GO FOR THE 31's!!!!

you just cant go wrong with Duratracs, and 31"s will look good lifted or not (unless your going to go to a 4" or 6" lift), the duratracs will make a huge difference when your off road as well as driving daily. When you do start looking at lifts, be sure to compare the lifts carefully, and while getting opinions are important, remember that people sometimes have other motives for recommending a lift, sometimes the addage that you get what you pay for is true, and sometimes a product is just expensive. Just remember that a Rolex and a Timex both do the exact same job and precisely the same way, but no one shakes a timex in someone elses face at a cocktail party.

I have 30" BFG AT's on mine, and they scrub in tight turns if the suspension moves any at all. 31's will work, but they will scrub from time to time if your turning tight.
