Is this a good deal (wheels and tires)

I've got a 2013 Oscar Mike, need to buy tires soon but I have the opportunity to purchase 5 Sahara Wheels on Bridgestone Duelers with about 7000 miles on them for $500. Sounds like a good deal to me? I like the dark gray finish on the wheels we have but was thinking I could just plasti-dip the Sahara wheels in dark gray? Shouldn't have any issues moving up to 18" wheels/tires right?Was going to get Coopers to replace my worn out Goodyears but I'm thinking this might be a better option for less money.


Thanks!

That's a great deal. 17's are less expensive but if your planning to to keep the 18" wheel/tire setup, go for it... Especially at that price. Do it before someone else gets it

I'd suggest finding out whether or not the Sahara Wheels still have the TPMS sensors installed. If not, you might have/want to swap yours over from your existing wheelset. Most tire places will do that for you, but it can cost a little $$. I think around $80 to $120 if I remember correctly.

If the TPMS are gone, you will get an annoying beep a few seconds after starting the Jeep unless you get a ProCal (or other such device) to turn off the TPMS warning.
