Best way to find Sport S tire/wheel take offs?
 
I just bought a new Jeep Sport. It has the 16" wheels with the Wrangler STs. I kick myself in the rear for not negoiating a set of other wheel/tires. My ideal thing would find someone to do partial trade for my tire/wheels for another set up. Stupid I know. :doh:

Craigs List...
there are usually wheels and tires and they are all local...or as for as YOU are willing to go... shipping on wheels/tires can usually kill a deal..so being able to pick up or meet is key

WhiskeyMike 05-16-2013 09:46 PM

Yep, sold mine on Craigslist. eBay classified(competitor to Craigslist) might also have some with less competition for buyers as it's less popular.

i see your in Alabama...these are listed in Brimiingham area

I have 5 17" 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Factory Wheels for sale. They were taken off my Jeep with just under 50 miles on them. Wheels are in excellent shape, no scratches, blemishes or signs of wear. I have kept them in climate controlled storage for the past year. Pictures show wheels and tires. THIS IS FOR THE WHEELS ONLY. Lugs for all five included. Asking $400.00 or willing to trade for best top trek top or set five oem jeep mineral gray rims. If interested please call Jeremy 205-965-5101. Wheels will fit 2007 and Up Jeeps.

another..
5- 17" Goodyear Wrangler SRA outlined white letter tires 255-75-R-17 and wheels, came off a 2013 Jeep Wrangler wheels are gray in color less than 500 miles in new condition $1,000 256-453-6178

I'd say this is your WINNER !
I have 5 new wheels/tires off of a 2013 Jeep Wrangler. I replaced them with 35" tires immediately after purchasing (239 miles) the Jeep. The tires are Goodyear Wrangler SR-A's size 255/75 R17. The tires alone are $163 a piece on tirerack.com (not including shipping and handling). The wheels have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern. They are all mounted and balanced and ready to be installed on your vehicle. I will sell all 5 for $700.

again, go to Craiglist - ALABAMA - Birmingham search JEEP WHEELS
good luck :thumb:

I have my 2013 Sport S 17" wheels and SRA P255/70R17 tires sitting in the garage here in Wichita Ks.

rics1997 05-16-2013 10:42 PM

Don't forget to look in the For Sale section of the forum. They come up all the time. Took mine to a local flea market and got rid of them

meandmyjeep 05-16-2013 10:56 PM

I emailed the dealer I bought from to. I doubt he will help much but you never knkw. I reminded him that my wife will be looking for a vehicle soon. I would like to sell mine and move into another set. That will be awkward trying to get mne off sold and buy others. Its my dumb fault for not telling dealer no deal unless you throw on Sport S wheels.

st1264 05-16-2013 11:08 PM

Find them online in the classifieds. Don't waste time at the dealer as they just want to markup things and make money. Guys with 'take-offs' are losing much of the value and just want to get rid of them.

The 16" steel wheels and dinky tires are fugly, I'd find the 17" set and swap em. Unfortunately your 16" wheel set probably isn't worth that much...

GeckoJK 05-16-2013 11:22 PM

Might as well run those 16 inch tires bald then sell the wheels for scrap. Get a new set of wheels and tires then.

Dragonscape 05-16-2013 11:35 PM

^^^^^^ This

This sounds like a plan. I just wanted something a tad more aggressive for light trail riding. I will never be into the ripping it up areas anymore. Getting older and did plenty of that long ago. Thanks guys.

MrMurph 05-17-2013 08:56 AM

Give Andreas at ForTec a call, they literally have dozens of them, from brand spanking new to those with only a few hundred miles on them. They will have mine on Monday, 4 with 2200 miles and the spare with ZERO. 1-866-579-5337. Located in Roswell, Ga, so not so far away that you couldn't do a day-trip to come pick some up.

I'd get the 17" take off set and sell the 16" set for whatever I could get. That stock 16" set is ugly and tiny. I was looking at 2dr Sports and didn't buy as the ones in stock had that puny setup.

Or do it right and go get the wheel/tire setup you actually want... I guarantee you won't be happy with what you have now.

laollis 05-17-2013 10:04 AM

I was gonna buy bigger wheels, so bought the tires first, then when ordering the wheels, I decided to stay with the 16 inch and got ProComps. So, now I have big tires sitting in my garage 285/70/17 and tried to sell them but around here people want things for free. Not gonna happen.

st1264 05-17-2013 11:34 AM

How wide are the stock 16" wheels? I'd be careful in tire size depending on the width of the wheel.

If larger tires fit and you are happy with the stock wheel, just slap bigger tires on it. Due to the price of tires, I think you could get a 'take off' 17" wheel/tire set for around the same amount of money.

That it what the JK accross the way from me did. Kept his steelies and slapped bigger tires on them.

This is the best financial plan, but its not the best plan in terms of enjoying your wrangler and getting the most out of it. You want to smile day to day, right? Getting your wheels and tires now will contribute to that.

I just got my 35's in the other day. I've got 4 of the stock 17" wheel/ tire combo with 3600 miles. Also have a fifth wheel alone. I am looking for $500 for them. If by any chance you are heading down to Hangoutfest in Gulf Shores look me up.
One caveat, I am going to yank the TPMS out though.

There you go OP ^^^. Go check em out.

jwink41 05-18-2013 12:12 AM

You can sell your steelies for enough to offset some of the cost of 17" takeoffs. I got almost $300 for my set of five 16" when I bought some Sahara 18" takeoffs a few years back. I'd recommend looking at aftermarket if your budget allows... Ended up doing that two years after buying Sahara takeoffs. The ProComps just spoke to me...

I couldn't stand mine with the steelies on it. I bought a set of brand new Sport S wheels and tires for $650. You will find them all over craigslist.

I'm still looking at aftermarket wheels/tires, but I'll keep the Sport S wheels/tires knowing that I can throw them on for long road trips, etc.

How much in scrap can you get for the 16 inch wheels?

creepycrawler 05-18-2013 08:47 AM

panthermark 05-18-2013 08:54 AM

shipping wheels & tires from JErsey to Alabama would run $200+ easy....

it very tought to work long distance second hand wheel / tire deals

I hooked up with a forum member from WV who was selling take offs... we eneded up meeting to make the deal work. I drove about 200 miles toward him, he drove about 120 miles toward me, but we got it done.

MT708 05-18-2013 02:32 PM

16 or 17"? 16' are a gimme for wheels and tires, 17's tires with 22k are anywhere from freebies to a couple hundred if somebody wants th and has no desire for a better tire. Wheels are going for 250-300 all 5 in new condition!

meandmyjeep 05-19-2013 04:00 PM

Now the word ugly is alittle exteme. I love the jeep period. Tires are wheels are nice but a Jeep they do not make.
