sorry if this is a 'dumb' question, but.....
privately selling a '04 explorer prior to ordering a '13 JKU, sport s with the p25575R17 tires.

thing is, i have a set of nearly new P235 70R16 's on 'beater' rims for the explorer, and if I don't include them in the private sale (some buyers arent interested), I would love to keep the tires for 'winter' use on my new JKU. Could I buy cheap steel wheels that would allow me to run P235 70R16's on a 2013 JKU Sport S? I know my speedo would be off slightly, but these tires are fantastic in snow and i'd avoid selling them if I could get affordable rims to fit them to my new Jeep.

Any wear / disadvantages to this?

Please feel free to provide links to cheap wheels, if they exist.

Thanks all, great forum in helping me plan my transition.

Your Jeep will have 32" tires. The ones from the explorer are only 29". I wouldn't do it, but to each his own. You're going to need an AEV Procal to change your speedometer/odometer and to reset the tpms unless you are buying another set.

You can get cheap wheels anywhere, but the only disadvantage I would see is you would have to get a 2nd set of air pressure sensors for the spares for your new wheels.

That is the reason I will probably end up giving my stock wheels away, but I hope to sell the tires at a good price? Stock were 16" and my new Mickey Thompson's are 17". What the heck?
