Where to find tires?
 
I'm looking for a 4-5 tires. Must be 33-35in and aggressive looking. Would love to buy locally so I don't have to pay for shipping. Let me know if you guys know of any good places to grab some tires. Thanks

Looking for place that sells name brand tires hopefully at a cheaper price than anywhere else.

Got the last two sets we bought at Sears and Raben.... Got a sweet deal on both sets, shop the 'net and find the best price you can, take it to your local shops and see who will meet it. Most are willing to do what it takes to get your business. Keep in mind it may cost you a bit more for the convenience, but if it's worth it to you, as it was to us, then everybody wins. :)

Sweet I found a decent set for about $175-$200 on the net. Just had to pay I think $250 to mail them. Hopefully one of the local shops will match that.

What part of IN are you? What tires are you looking at? There are lots of deals out there if you spend the time to shop around for them. My local Sears has "mall appreciation" day on Wednesdays, so needless to say we bought the 315's on Wednesday to save $100.... Tread Lightly - Home will give you a $100 rebate on GY Wrangler tires.... there are lots of ways to save... ;)

I'm about 30 mins west of Indy. I was looking for a set of 4-5 agressive looking 33/12.50/15 or 35/12.50/15. Let me know

Check out Tire Barn

Most 33's will run about 185-210 and 35's will be about 210-225 and thats for MT's such as BFG, GY, GG, etc etc.

Amw2210 03-09-2011 12:22 AM

is it a good idea or bad idea to buy used?

tire rack.com has gy duratracks 33x12.5x15 for 135 or so all day!!

VVCG33 03-10-2011 05:51 PM

Sears usually has some good deals. You can always go to a mechanic and have him (or her) order them for you and they will probably give you some kind of deal..

I live in Brownsburg. Big O Tire always has a good deal and they will offer discounts. Ask for Mike. If you ever have an issue they resolve it immediately. Their price includes all expenses. Road hazard, valves stems, balancing, mounting, free flat repair any time.

Tire rack is great. If you live within driving distance to South bend if you by there they install for free. And their prices are not to shabby.

mtu1293 04-14-2011 08:54 AM

I would check craigslist even, or other 4x4 forums. I got my set of 4 - 35x12.50x17 BFG KM2s with only 3k on them for $550.

I have treadwright retreads and they run roughly $100 tire + shipping. They are 285/75/16 and look just like the old version of the Wrangler MT/R. They ride great and did very well when I tried them at Badlands a few weeks ago.
They will mount them on several different types of tires and you can request what type as well. These are not my first set from this company and they won't be my last. They don't carry any of the 33/12.5/15's anymore, but they have several tread patterns and a wide variety of sizes.

Just another thing to consider.

Ditto on Big-O in B-Burg. Their service is good and their prices are square. Also, I have had good luck with AutoTire Centers on Emerson in Southport - Ask for Mark. Got a great set of BFG A/T 31" for my Yukon at $160 each that lasted 80k miles.

bwoodchuck 05-04-2011 08:45 PM

Ok, Just installed new wheels and tires. Bought the tires from Big O in Brownsburg. TBC Corporation - Private Brands (Multi-Mile, Cordovan, Sigma, Vanderbilt) I picked up 31x10.5x15 Mud Claw's for $142 each. Very aggressive. The black Black Rock 15x8 rims are very nice. I picked those up from Quadratec Black Rock Wheels 941581240 - Black Rock Series 941 Dune Steel Wheel in Matte Black for Jeep® Vehicles with 5x4.5 Bolt Pattern - Quadratec .

will Big-0 install lifts? I like to add 2" Figure it would be cheaper if I did it when I upgraded my tires as well.

Im pretty sure they will not, where do you live? I could help you lift it.

They did install a 2" lift for me. I was just talking to Mike at Big O yesterday and he is ready to do more. Tell them Brian Keith sent you.
They installed the lift kit that I provided them. I purchased the kit from 4Wheelparts.com and had it delivered to the store on East Washington Street Shipping is free and I work nearby, but live in Brownsburg. I scheduled an appointment and they installed the kit in 3 hours. They charged $100 bucks per hour, then did a wheel alignment $65 bucks. I could do it myself, but don't have time. I also installed new tires and rims at the same time. This was my son's graduation gift.
The freakin jeep drives great now. Handle like new(er).
