Offer for tires/rims and lift, sounds good...
Just thought I'd throw this out there for opinions and comments. I ran across someone selling their big tires/rims and lift below for more info. I have a stock 99 and was just initially looking for new rims and some 30 tires without a lift kit. However since this came available I might have to jump on it. I'm in the process of looking it up but does anyone know if the 12.5" width rims woulb be ok if I decided to just get the rims and put on the 30x9.5R15's. I think not but am not sure at the moment. I think the bolt patter would be ok but not the width. Not even sure he'd do it since it sounds like he needs new rims and tires to down size and wants the money to do it. Also, has anyone ever run in to townies giving you a hassle because of your big modded out jeep. Sheesh, what's this world coming to. I'll fill you in after I call him tonight.

FOR SALE!!! 35" * 12.5" ridge runner A/T tires on Mickey Thompson 5-lug rims with 2 1/2" Body lift INCLUDED!!!!!!! $500

How much tread is left on the tires? do you have any pics of the rims and tires? I need this to fit my 99 Jeep Wrangler. what year Jeep did the rims come off of?

This is the deal I have a 2003 wrangler that I'm lowering believe it or not. Sad day but I have a local cop who is know to pull over big Jeeps in my town. The tires are like new the rims are a little used. I'm looking for some one to swap there bolts and bushing for my body lift. I have attached pictures the lift is still on the Jeep and would have to be taken off the same day you install the body lift on your jeep. Unless you want to take the bolts out off your jeep and bring me the parts so I can take the lift out of mine.

I will sell the tires seperately but I still want $ 500.00 for the set. The body lift is an extra bonus if you want it

Not so sure about the body lift...but i sank over a grand in just my tires

Without pics...can't really judge. I dropped over 1K on tires (without new rims). I would not buy a used lift. Besides, 2 1/2" body lift is way too high IMO. Do it right, get a suspension lift.

i would bet the rims are not 12.5in wide i think thats just the tires. common rim size is either 8in or 10in wide. but thats a good deal for tires and rims. x2 on the body lift, i wouldnt go over 1.25in. keep in mind for 35s you will need about 4 in of lift to take it off road and have a little room to flex

Well first off, I have never seen a 2 1/2" body lift in my life. A 1", 1.25", 2" etc. but Im not sure about what he says is a 2 1/2". I dont wanna go so far as to say it doesnt exist but its likely a 2" bl that he has. Plus, going over 2" is a bad idea anyway. On another note, if you dont have any lift at all right now your not gonna clear 35's on 2" of bl. You could snatch up the lift and tires and also purchase a 3" suspension lift from somewhere else to tuck the 35's nicely. Now if the tires are in good enough shape then Id say $500 for that whole combo is a good deal. Chaces are the rims they come on are 8 in as stated earlier. The tires themselves, above 33", are commonly 12.50" wide. The narrower rim is needed to keep the bead of the tire seated properly. The bolt pattern is the same so you wont need to worry about that. Most Jeeps use the 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern (all Wranglers do besides CJ's). My suggestion, take a look at the tires and if they have good tread get them. Throw the bl and tires on and find yourself a nice 3" suspension lift like the Full Traction or Rubicon Express lifts. Then you'll fit the 35's, have room to flex, and do it all fairly cheaply.
