You can get new "stock" wheels and tires from a wrangler off of Craig's list for fairly reasonable for now. You'll need a spacer/hub for the bolt pattern to work.

Like stated CL is going to be about your only option in that price range and size tire, mine are 33/12.5/16's and are about 260 a piece. 16" rims throw you into a different load category ment for 3/4 ton trucks usually or larger which means more rubber so cost more. Best bet is to find a nice set of 5 on 4.5 15" rims with tires on CL

I don't know how they are rated in the hard offroaders club, but I have GT Adventuros that are 31"x10.5"x15"(or 15"x10.5" however they do the rim) and I'm pretty pleased. I think they're pretty agressive looking, but they're quiet on the pavement. They were $550 at discount tire. If your jeep is stock they will rub your fender flares.

Kuhmo has a $120 gift card rebate on Road Venture AT51. Tire rack has them. Or you can find a local dealer if you don't want to pay shipping.

Discount tire around here sells used tires pretty cheap, some are in like new shape from guys who take new jeeps in for larger tires.

CL is a good place, also as mentioned Discount Tire or any other tire store. Ask if they have any pulloff tires or used tires. Be careful with POs and check them carefully. Maybe a car/truck dealer? Sometimes people will buy a new car and have the dealer switch out the stock tires for something else and they sell them reasonably.

Agreed got my 31 10.5 15 at Costco 4 cost me 750....and that was 4 bucks cheaper per tie than tire rack. Costco also repairs and rotates for the life of the tire. Don't go cheap!

DCT also offers free rotation... But I don't think anyone warranties them. AT and mud tires are exempt based on my research.

I have warrantys for road hazard on my yj's generals red letters , and my Xj's KM2's I've never run into issues with replacements even with them covered in dirt with rock rash and some chunks missing from the sidewalls

I talked to several shops before buying and none of them would warranty an AT or Mud tire... You would think DT or TB would, but no go... Who was it that gave you that warranty??

Discount gave me the full warranty on my MTR Kevlars, they actually gave me the warranty on all 5 tires but only charged me for two. They could tell by my chewed up lugs that this was used off road, didn't matter, they were pushing the sale. (That's how I got all 5 for price of two)

Took my new-to-me '93 in to Discount Tire for a rotate and balance last week. I have Falken something-or-others on 16" wheels. Guy checked the tread wear, said I still had >75% tread, and asked if I wanted to buy road hazard warranties on them ("in case you mess them up offroad," he said.) Hmmm - $100 for lifetime rotate and balance, or $192 for warranty on all 4 (spare is stock) including the rotate and balance. No brainer... Strange that some DTs won't warranty them and others will...

I got a 60,000 mi warranty on my General AT Grabbers. They have a tread pattern similar to BFGs and they're made in the USA.

To the PO: the stock rim size is 15" so if you keep an eye out on CL, you should be able to find a good deal on 15" rims and 31" tires that guys are taking off to move up to bigger tires. I bought a set of 5 stock Gambler rims with fairly good tires for $200. The tires had about 40% tread so it gave me time to save up for new ones (the Generals above).

Here is one for you all.

I just installed my Kuhmo Road Ventures (31's) and after I pulled the old ones, and installed these, I realized my balancer doesn't have a cone to fit my rims. So I put 'em on anyway and took it for a ride just to see. At 50mph, I can't feel any out-of-balance! When my 911 had one wheel with only .25oz out, I could feel it. Most of the time in the Jeep I am going slower than 40 anyway.

I figure it this way....the damn Jeep is so rough riding to begin with, balancing the tires is a waste of time (& money for most of you). Now my crappy rims look better with no wheel weights. God, what a junker!!!!!
