Tires

Ok so a set of 33s is in my future but I would like to stay with 33x10.50 because I don't have the extra money for spacers. What tire do they even make in this size? Which do you recommend? (Newbie/high schooler)

Your best bet would prob be to just go on tirerack or discount tire and shop by size, then just find the place with the best price once you pick your tire
Good luck

Discount tire direct has the best prices, customer service, etc. the will mount, balance, and ship (if u buy the wheel/tire package) cheaper than most places will just sell the stuff....also they price match or beat anyone. I have bought 6 sets of wheels and tires from them in the last year between the Jeeps I have built and sold and the cars at my job and I have never had a problem with them. One time they sent me wheels and tires and they werent perfectly balanced. They allowed me to take them to my local shop, have them re balanced and sent them the bill....no questions asked. I always use Goodyear duratracs and I love them. Cheap price, great quality, minimal road noise, good wear, etc.

I bought my 33x10.5s brand new off of eBay. Then my local tire shop mounted and balanced and new valve stems for $15 each. That put me under $900 for a set of 4

BFGoodrich Tires makes these tires in 33x10.50R15:

Baja T/A

All-Terrain T/A KO

Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

I have the All-Terrain T/A KO in the 33x10.50R15 size and really like them.

I have been leaning towards these. How's the ride noise and overall traction and wear?

Mine ride great, and I have found that 30 psi in the front and 34 in the rear is the best for almost no wear what so ever. But they are loud on fresh new blacktop!

Its a mud tire so its not super quiet. But they really aren't that loud. They have good traction. They wear nice as well, as long as your tire pressure is right.

I have the general grabber at2's , and they quiet on the road, and great snow and mud, especially for an AT tire. I would definitely recommend them, and they may be a little cheaper than the km2's

You might have problems with fitting 33x10.5 on your rig if you have stock rims without spacers.

You have the 4.0 right? I've got a 2.4 so I'm assuming the front is a little lighter do you think this will affect how much pressure I should put in?

Idk. I watched my tires very very closely ever since they were mounted in July. And I started with 28 all around and noticed a little tiny bit of wear on the outsides. So I went to 30. And I keep em rotated very often. I then kept noticing still some wear on the outside of the rear so I kept going up 1 psi until it stopped. And 2 months later, I see no wear whatsoever at these pressures. 6k miles on them
