30\" Tire suggestions and questions.
Well, my 235's are at a whopping 3/32" of tread remaining, so I think it's time for some new tires.
I was thinking about going to 30" or 31" tires for the YJ.
Although, a buddy of mine is looking to get rid of some almost brand new 33x12.50" General Grabber A/T's including American Racing 15x8 wheels for $350. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
It's really tempting to pick up those 33's and stuff 'em in the garage until I get my suspension and body lifts (late April/ early May).
However, my current tires probably won't last that long and I'll end up buying a whole new set anyway...not very cost effective. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
I know I can run 30's on my essentially stock YJ without too many (if any) problems.
The difference between the 30x9.50 and the 31x10.50 that I'm considering is $8 per tire.
For 4 tires that's a whopping $32, for 5 it's $40.
Not a huge difference.
I may grab a body lift shortly after I get the tires just to increase fender clearance to minimize fender rub regardless of which size I get.
So, the big question is: [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Which would be the best option?
Alternatively, any other suggestions on where I go from here?
I do mostly "desert" (sand, loose dirt, & some rocks - not rockcrawling though) and forest road/fire trail wheeling.
Thick gooey mud is rarely seen around here, so I'm not really looking at a M/T type tire, though I could be convinced if they would be a good choice. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
