Last year I bought a set of 5 tires brand new off a 2013 rubicon for $500.00
I currently have a set of 5 tires and rims with sensors off a 2012 Sahara with only 4000 miles and got for $500.00
If that helps for price range

Thanks for the tip. Found a short YouTube spot about it and bookmarked for future reference. Hope your JK arrives soon!

That's the ticket…blends in very nicely. Nice quick project for the weekend. Appreciate you taking/posting the pics!
Your tires put my weenie ones to shame. Maybe I'll "accidentally" run over some spikes and be forced into a new set!

Would like to do something to hid the pinch seam and may just mask off the lower edge and spray the seam with bed liner to blend in better with the rock rails. Purely aesthetic, not functional!

My two cents.

Thanks Sinister. The first time I saw it on a lot, I wasn't crazy about it. Actually ordered a white wrangler but it was hung up in the order process so long I bailed and my dealer helped me track a different one down. The more I saw the Anvil color, the more I liked it and was then glad the white one didn't work out (it is STILL in Toledo!).

Looking forward to doing some off road driving around here but still need different tires for anything of consequence. I thought it was coming with at least an All Terrain tire but they are not quite there. May just wear these out first and then get some REAL tires as I hate to just throw the $$ out the window…will see how patient I am!

aniemyer Did an intro on the Main Forum back in early September and total fail to drop by here. Greetings from Da'loot! '14 JKUR, pretty much stock, so far, just adding some Ace rails, changing out the antenna and adding the noise/insulation panels to my hard top.

My youngest, a.k.a. "Son Number Two" (SNT) is a Freshman at UM-TC, and is driving what used to be my '09 JKUS. He's done a lot of mild off-road and mudding in it.
