I joined TL a few days ago, and this $100 rebate along with the 1% below inv. is a real treat. My Rubi Unl is in transit and should arrive any day now. As soon as it gets here I plan on spending a few hours installing the 2" AEV BB and then heading over to Discount Tire for the new shoes.

|devicemanager||I appreciate the input. I've already ordered the AEV 2" BB (I'll install it myself) and will be ordering 315/70/17 Duratracs from my local Discount Tire. Apparently on a 9" wheel they are only 34" @ 35 psi, so I would not expect rubbing unless I disco the swaybar, and even then it may not be an issue.|

|InfernoGirl||If you're buying new wheels and tires, and you want to end up with 35's you'll be money ahead to go ahead and put a 2.5" lift on it and your 35's and be done, rather than doing tires twice.... You'll want 35's before your 33's wear out, and a 2.5" lift is all that's needed to clear 35's, and they can be picked up for not a whole lot of money... 3.5" is gonna require lots more than just a lift kit.|

|TJe0454||smart. you will love the duratracs. silent on the road and really good offroad. (just dont play with sharp rocks)|

|devicemanager||Thanks for the input. I'll just sell the oem's w/out tpms and go with a Duratrac 285/70/17|

|InfernoGirl||Yes, they will spread out some due to the wider wheel. Be cautious airing down offroad with that set up tho', you don't have a lot of tire width to keep your bead seated. It will fit ok, we did it for our spare for a short time.|

Pro Comp 7069's w/ oem BFG's
My 2012 Rubi Unl is in transit, and today I ordered some black 17x9 pro comp 7069's from Quadratech. I planned on having the local discount tire removing the bfg's from the oem wheels and mounting them on the 7069's. I was quoted $105 which seems fair.
I believe the oem wheel is only 7.5" wide, so will the oem bfg's look "wider" on the wider wheels? I am hoping this will hold me over until I get the 3.5" lift and 35's.
