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

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.
