in need of tires and rims
 
well, i currently have 33'' with a 3.5'' lift, and i keep putting $30 of gas in it every 3 days, and i can't go past 60-65, so i'm wondering if anyone knows where i can find cheaper and small rims and tires for better gas and miles, anyone have any ideas or for sale? let me know asap... :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:: thumb::thumb:

Local classifieds. I have some stockier sized tires and wheels but your probably no where near me considering USA is a pretty big place.

Edit: saw you're in Mississippi

yeah, i'm in mississippi, i'm lookin for the stock tires, that would be great, something where i could changed the tires from mud to road, ya know?

Yeah I know what ya mean. The shipping would be outrageous otherwise I'd hook you up cheap.

I think the size is 5 on 4.5 x 7", with about a 3" back space, some one will come along and tell the right size.
The thing is they don't have come from a jeep, they can come from a lot of other cars and trucks as long as they fit, and that was a common size for Ford cars and Dodge Cars and may be Dodge P/Us.

Oh, by the way that is one of the best looking YJs i have seen on here.

If your around Woodville Ms.I may can hook you up with some one.

Too bad you're not in MA I'd trade you in a second. My tires are way too small.

that ius one fine looking yj,,,
i bought a set of wheels with 235s on them and got another 10mpg,s and can run 65 easy on the highway now...my yj has 4 inch lift and i usually run 33x12.50 15s it looks a littlke funny with the small tires but it still goes great off road and alot better on road..

ford ranger wheels will fit for sure.. and they go all the way down to 14

Tires and wheels
 
Ckeck out the tire and wheel shops in your area. You can usually get a full set of take off's cheaper than you can buy a set of tires for.
