2011 Rubicon rims and tires
 
Greetings-
in the market for a 2011 Wrangler. the dealer is enticing the offer by giving me a "deal" on 5 new Rubicon rims and tires, installed. how much would these cost me, or rather, how much of a plus should i figure this in the deal?

thanks,
NAV

I saw a set with 10K miles go for $350 last week. So if he didn't throw them in, there are plenty to be found. I sold my stock rims and tires back to my dealer today.

Before I ordered my 2011 Jeep, I looked at a 2010 Sahara - I wanted the Mountains wheels and tires, a local dealer wanted 2250.00.. Needless to say, I did not buy the sahara or the mountain set of wheels..

Don't pay more than $500 extra for them, you'll want to be rid of them sooner than later anyway......... (how do I know this???? :))

Without knowing the rest of the deal being offered, I can't comment on whether the dealer's really offering you something good. He may be.

However, if you must know the absolute most Rubi wheels could cost, take a look at Mopar's website. They sell them brand new. (Mountain ones too.) But with Mopar, "overpriced" is an understatement, so you might also take a look at Quadratec's website to price out new wheels with a similar look.

The bottomline though is that with Wranglers, there's always folks taking off their stock wheels and getting new ones to go with lifts and whatnot. Try running a search on eBay or Craigslist, I don't expect you'd have any problem getting some with just a few miles on them should you pass on the dealer's offer.

Thanks.. at least for now, I would love to put the mountain wheels and tires on my new jeep but with winter coming, I have 3 or 4 months of crappy weather anyway...

I just priced out the Rubicon wheels for my Sahara. Dealer cost is $194

So basically the 5 wheels are $970, and the tires are probably close to $200 each. If they are throwing them in its most likely because they took them off of another Wrangler.
