Looking for a good price 33" tire...

I'm putting a 3" lift under my girl within the next few weeks. Im on line trying to look for a good priced (Good quality) 33" in. M/T or A/T tire that will match budget issues. I know im going to have to run my 31's for a while with the lift until I come up with funds... Any help would be great

Most people like the Wrangler Authority tires, you can only get them at walmarts. They're pretty cheap, but seem to hold up pretty well. Thinking about them for my next set, either those or the duratracs (if finances permit.)

I'm wanting to keep the stock 15s if possible. I like the look of them and Wal-Mart carries?

Can you tell me the equivalent numbering for a 33 X 12.50 X 15" tire? Since we are so far apart, a P.M. might be good. Thanx, Phil

The authority's are only offered in 31s for 15" rims. Wish it was a 33. It is definitely an awesome tire. I've been through just about everything I could think of wish not issues

33x12.5 tires won't work with stock wheels without spacers. You could go with 33x10.5 bfg mt or AT and keep your stock wheels.

Ditto-the tires will rub on the rear spring cup. Spacers or new rims will allow you to run a 12.5" tire.

This has honestly helped alot... has there been any problems with spacers? Easy to install? You guys gotta keep in mind... I've wanted a jeep since 8, but only had a 92 for a while then everything else I owned got lowered... not raised. This will be a fun and exciting new experience

Post back on the amount of road noise please, thanks! Look like a solid tread

If you plan to be going off-road...
Save the money
Go with the Wrangler Duratracs.
They have brought me so far, where others had to air down a lot and even lock an axle. I have open diffs, and I have only gone down to 20psi and I've never gotten stuck (yet) even on rocks and in mud. They are truly worth the money. Tire noise is nonexistent. They do well in deep snow off the road, and okay on road. Obviously, it's not a snow tire. It does everything very well. You will find a lot of guys will recommend them. Just look up some threads.

I've seen people tout "deals" they've found while conveniently leaving the spare tire out of the equation.

Most wheeling groups require a full-sized spare. Keep that in mind while pricing out tires.

Chalk me up as another satisfied DuraTrac customer. I've got 33x12.50s on mine (including a spare). I bought 'em from TireRack.com.

33" Tire Shopping in W-S

Howdy partner,
I'm shopping for some 33 X 17s in Winston Salem, too! I have some in my online cart on Extremeterrain.com and they are 319 each for BF Goodrich A/T, or to be exact A/T TA KO 305/65R17 (god, this is compicated for a non-mechanic like me. Why don't they throw in 10 more numbers for me to remember?) I found the same tire just now for 281 each at Discount Tire in town here by Hanes Mall. So I just saved myself 195 dollars, for 5. :-) I'm checking American Tire, too. I've done business with them in the past, successfully, as well. Best luck to you! I keep thinking "one more month, just wait until your taxes are filed!" before my base model turns into monster truck from hell with 2.5 lift 17s with 33s on them, and a front bull bumper to knock shit out of the way :-) I've been going off-roading with my unmodified JK...I'm glad I have skid plates (that front bumper bull guard has a skid plate on it, el-cheapo from Extreme Terrain, 2 hundred something, looks great, and one more skid plate!) I'm new in town here, from the West Coast, but I've already been to Uwharrie, and from here to up in the mountains of Tennessee & back, looking for Jeep-wheelin' fun! I'm excited.

Shawn, where are you originally from on the west coast? I moved here from California 5 years ago now. I'm in Wilkesboro now. There is a jeep meet up like every weekend. I went 2 weeks ago and there was 25 of us that went up the Powder Horn Mountain trail.

Has anyone tried a "Guard Dog" from Treadwright? Re-capped off road tires, price is right. I'm tempted.

I have had a set of 285/75/16s Guard Dogs on for about 9,000 miles. They have been good. The tire is a good balance of decent highway and off road performance. I drove them 1300 miles cross country down to Moab and on trails down there for four days. The tires perform well on rocks, but they are not aggressive mudders. The tires did well on the Rubicon trail which was also very rocky. The side walls are a bit stiff as the cases are Nitto trail grabbers. Off road I air down to about 8 -10 lbs to get some flex. So far not much tread wear so I think they should last quite a while.

Before I bought these I did some research on retreads. I had concerns about retreads coming apart. Department of Transportation studies where they went out and picked up pieces of tires off the roadways shows the proportion of retreads that come apart is roughly the same as the proportion of retreads sold. The study concluded retreads don't come apart at a higher rate than new tires. Both new tires and retreads come apart due to heat damage from under inflation at high speed and heavy loads. And the prices are about half of new tires.

Same thing imho. Fact is I will not spend my money in there. Especially when it's on the safety of my vehicle. There's General tires, then there's General tires designed for Wal-Mart. Not on my rig.

I just bought some Mastercraft Courser MXTs in that exact size and I love them. I have some after market rims though, Ion Alloys. Got 5 of them for just a hair over 1000. Made by Cooper, I wouldn't be afraid to say I'll get 50/60k out of them.
