ideas on wheels and tires combo cheap
 
Looking to upgrade to a 33 or 35 inch tire with a new set of wheels for a reasonable price.. Any opinions on make, at or mt, etc..

If 33’s the Duratrac 33x12.5x15 is a great set at a great price. Search for duratrac combo on the forums and you'll see a ton of information and different looks. I'm researching 35’s so I can't help there.

I'm not sure if my jk can run 15's i have stock 18 Sahara wheels..i was debating on finding a set of rubi wheels or something..

I might know someone selling some 35's soon... I will give him a call in a bit. You can get new steel 15r at belle tire for $50 a pop.. Not to shabby if you can find some gently used tires to slap on them on c-list or from someone on here. I did Rubi take offs on my last jeep and found a pair (5) for $250 with only 10,00o miles off craigslist. Your Sahara is on an 18r and the rubi's run a 17r... so unless you want buy someones wheel and tire combo... you will have to buy new wheels.

Yeah I've been looking at some pro comp alloy wheels.. I was thinking 33x12.50x17 but I've talked to a couple guys that i used to wheel my old samurai and they've been trying to talk me into 37's with 17's but i just started shopping for wheels and tires

Do you have a lift currently on your ride?

If it is stock you will not be able to do over 33's w/o rubbing

jgore2409 07-08-2013 02:47 PM

Im going to be putting a 2 or 2.5 inch lift on my rig

ffdisch 07-08-2013 03:03 PM

Well you will not be able to sport 37's with that lift. Are you doing a spacer lift or a full suspension? You should have no problems with 35's rubbing with a 2-2.5 lift though.

I've heard good an bad bout spacers but I'm still really reading into the whole spacer lift.. I've heard they're squeaky and horrible but other people I've talked to like the crap outta them? So I'm still up in the air honestly

You should always do a suspension lift if you can... Its not the cheapest route but it will be the beat choice! It will save you time and money down the road

Me and my tire guy met yesterday and he thinks if i run a 285x75x17 if be better off then trying to run a 33 or 35 cause he's worried bout rubbing.. Does anyone have any input bout wheel spacers ? Are they hard on the studs and axles?

You can. You have to be careful though as some fit some dont. I have run Pro Comp 52s on 2 different JKUs. I had 15x10 on my 08 and have 15x8 on my 11. Both fit with no problems. No grinding or spacers needed.

Best deal out there if you can get it is the PC 52s in one of the 15" varieties and PC tires on the buy 3 get 1 free deal. I did that with my current set up of 35x12.50-15 PC Xtreme MT on 15x8 PC 52s and was Balt to get the whole shooting match for less than what it costs for 4 35s for a 17" wheel. I love my 15" wheels.

If you do a lift you can run the 33's or 35's. I think you will be disappointed if you go with what your tire guy said... He is obviously not a jeep owner. Get some 15" pro comps, throw on at least a 2.5 lift, and get some 35's.. You wont be sorry
