You've most likely got a 15x7 rim which wont fit the 33x12.5...

the main problem you'll have is you cant fit a 33x12.5 tire on your stock 97 without rubbing on turns...sorry man

You'd need a 2" budget boost to run them

I'm assuming that your stock rims are 15x8 (and you still have to tell the size of the tires as all you have given is 15 and 33")... Once again assuming that your stock rims are 15x8 you can fit 10.5 - 12.5 no problem, but will the 33" fit on your Jeep? What did you have before?...

you can't run 33s on a stock jeep without rubbing. also i think the stock wheels are 7 inches wide. you'd normally want at least 8 inches wide for 12.5 inch tires.

my original tires were bf good ridge all terrain ta in 30x9.50r 15 lt

i don't have a lift i know i will need one to run these tires.

the reason im interested in these is because when i bought the jeep it had 1 odd tire that i replaced it was 220 mounted.

this is 4 tires for 240, to me it seems like a good deal if there in good shape

You will not fit 33"s under your Jeep... Sorry. Go buy one cheap shitty used tire for now and then it will buy you some time to get what you need to get and you won't be rushed in to making a wrong decision...

blue you make a good point buts its 3 tires, 2 if i don't do the spare. where do you even get cheap tires??? and even if i do that i still have to buy new ones eventually so that's ruffly 600 dollars.

so if i spent 240 wouldn't i still have enough for a cheap budget boost to get me rolling???

You could go down to you local tire shop and see what he has used. I have done it in the past and picked up tires for $25 trust me when I say they are used... But good enough to last a few days or so...

Try a salvage yard. The have lots of decent tires at a good price. I picked up a 31x10.5 wheel and tire for $50 with over 60% rubber. As someone else said, get something to get you back on the road, make the size decison later.
