For sale with new tires?

At least 2/3 of the Wranglers I've looked at have had new tires installed. Makes me wonder if they are trying to hide something like irregular tire wear for that particular Wrangler.

What do you think?

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Or they put new tires on so you don't bring it up as a reaon to offer less because the tires are worn..

Or because the po swapped back to the stock wheels before trading it in, and the tires on them were shot...

I agree with Infernogirl I just bought a used jeep and it came with back to stock tires. Was told the 33's on it were shot and it's cheaper to put on stock size tires vs 33's

Well, buying from an individual, I would agree with the reasons above. Coming from a used car dealer, it's often common practice for them to put new tires on.

I sure hope they are all correct, because the 99 Jeep Wrangler I just bought last week from the Mitsubishi dealer has 5 new tires! LOL

there really arent any problem years for the wrangler. you want a sport and if you want to offroad you want to find a sport with the d44 rear in it. the sport has the 4.0 motor which is a HUGE step up from the 2.5 in the non sport. in 2000 the 4.0 went for a distributer setup to an electronic ignition and the trans went from an ax15 to an nv3550. nothing wrong with the 97-99 just putting it out there. if you want an auto you want a 2003 or newer because they have a 4 speed auto instead of a 3 speed found in previous years.

Thanks 350. That's the info I need. I definately want an automatic and woudl rather have EI so I know now that I need a 2003 or 2004 but not sure if it will fit the budget I'd set for myself. I've got $10K burning a hole (as my father used to say) in my checking account...........lol I may have to go higher from what I'm seeing on Auto Trader and eBay. Hoping to find a private seller in the Birmingham, Alabama area.

I found a nice '97 with 63K miles and auto with no body damage and extremely clean but my friends told me I'd be glad I waited for a 6 cyl.

One drive in a 4cyl, and you'll be sure you want a 6.

Okay, I cannot be the ONLY member out here who has a 4 cylinder! And I like it just fine! LOL Maybe because I am (1) not driving straight up nearly vertical sand dunes and (2) I appreciate the gas mileage? So how come no other 4 cylinder owners are speaking up??

I dont know why you would complain about new tires. I would love to have new tires! Tires wear out when you drive a vehicle for those of you that didnt know that

Actually, you are.

When I bought my LJ, dealer had put on 4 new Uniroyal Laredo Cross Country's, spare is still the original GSA, all of them 30's. They ride well on the street and do good enough off road that it's kept me from spending money on tires. Only problem is, the way they're wearing I bet they'll last 100,000 frickin' miles!
