Winter tires

I have some winter tires for my TJ and last year never managed to locate rims for them, but want to do that this year before the snow starts falling. Any idea where I can locate rims for my '06 Rubicon to have my winter tires mounted on?

I had to look up your town on the map .. never heard of it before. I don't know of any places near you that you can get the rims - most new tire shops will be able to get you rims or .. a wrecker would be a great place for used.

For your Jeep, you can run any 5 bolt on 4.5" rim that is 15" or greater. From a wrecker, you can take the rims off of most Ford Rangers, Ford Bronco II's, Ford Explorer, Mazda B4000 series and of course any other Jeep (Cherokee, YJ, TJ, GrandCherokee prior to 2002).

I suppose it's a bit late, since I just drove through the snow in Evansburg on the weekend... But if you're still looking and can make it into Edmonton, there's a couple shops you can check to get some simple steelies. http://www.takeitoff-road.com/ is one. Edson probably has some places too..

Though as NaeKid mentioned, it might better to try and find some from the wreckers, since it'll keep the cost way down from buying new...
