Does anyone have tires and or rims to sell?

I got 225/75r15 now. I'm trying to go bigger. Ether 235 or 245 depending on if I do a boomerang shackle lift. I'm looking for 4 or 5 and will consider buying rims too. Anyone???

FWIW Palma, your 225's equate to 28" tires, and I think you're owned by a YJ, at least according to "about me" in your profile. 245/75r15's are equivalent to a 29" tire. I did a quick Google dumpster dive and it revealed you could possibly run 31" tires on your stocker.

I have 30" tires on my TJ with no issues, and can get away with 31's. YMMV, and invariably will...

Thanks for the info. My buddy who has a 87 said I can get 31s with the shackle lift. You know anyone who is selling?

Sorry Palma, IDK anybody selling tires that isn't at Town Fair Tire or Reliable Auto!

FYI if you do run a bigger tire, you might want to change your speedo gear or your speedo and odometer might be less than accurate. And, if it matters, you will take a hit in the gas mileage, more or less depending on how you're geared.

GL with your tire hunt.
