A little help about tires

I'm new to the Jeep life and do a good amount of beach driving. I have an 07 wrangler four door (my first jeep) and I am looking for a new or almost new set of tires and rims on the cheap. Nothing special just stock tires, 255/75 either r17 or 18 will work. I looked through the jeep forum for sale pages but don't see many listings. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I could find some cheap? Does anyone else do a lot of beach driving? If so do you run on two sets of tires? I am looking so I can have a set just to beat up on the beach during striper season.

Thanks for the help!

I'm in Kearny, just west of Jersey City and Hoboken. I'll check out Craig's List. I'm always sketchy about buying something without seeing it first.

Thanks for the Craig's list tip. I found a nice set of four tires. I actually up graded a little too. Now I just need to find a spare stock Rubicon tire. If anyone is getting rid of a BFG MT 255 75 r17 let me know.

As long as you air down to about 15lbs you can get by on the beach with the stock tires.
