Thanks for the info. My driving habits will prob keep me on the 2 end hopefully. There is a ton of threads on 35's and power/mpg loss. Hadn't seen many addressing 33's.

The 265/70-17's are shorter than your stock tire so if you can, I would swap them for the 285/70-17's.

The guy at the tire joint was trying to talk me out of the 265 because they didn't match his computer. I would've loved bigger tires but I was afraid of rubbing as this is my DD. Did I make the right choice? BTW.. 2 week wait as Goodyear is out and needs to manufacture more. Also I want to get a 2" lift after the winter season. TIA!

CTJeepTJ A lot of places I have been to, will NOT put on tires if you didn't buy them at their shop or at their online affiliate. Some of the smaller/family run shops might be more willing to do it. I have had some luck that way.

AFBcon06 any tire shop would put the tires bought on line on to your rims I would assume. Check with a local mechanic or firestone pep boys or what have you.

09sahara Where can I get a set of tires i got online put on the stock rims?

Discount Tire The 275/70R18 would be the best size to run on your stock wheels if you are planning on leveling your Jeep out this coming summer. Unfortunately, these are on back order at this time. I can however order in the 275/65R18 size now if you are interested. These are basically the same overall diameter as your stock tires and about 3/4" wider. ETA would be roughly 7-10 business days. If you are interested give us a ring at 1.888.459.4080, Anyone here would be happy to help you.

CTJeepTJ Go to Tirerack.com and punch it in. They will give you the factory size and alternative sizes. I would definitely go with duratracs! I love mine but I have 15" steelies and I got 31". You could get 33" for sure.

Oh and I paid about $140 each delivered (free delivery) from 4Wheel Parts. They were on a 2 month back order about this time last year.
