Need Everyones Opinion

Hello,
I have a question. Right now my jeep sits with a 4" lift and TJ flares and I am running 33x12.50 cooper discovery MT tires. They are basically new(1000 miles). I have a chance to trade someone my tires and rims(MT alloy) for his 35x12.50 Centennial Campaigner M/T on a set of black steel rims(red and blue strip. his tires are at about 75-80%. who would do this trade? will I rub? Or I have a guy who is going to buy a set of New Soft 8's(black obviously) who wants a rim trade. he is going to pay for the swap

thanks
jason

I wouldn't do it. You are giving up newer tires and more expensive rims.

(I don't know if they'd fit or not)

will you rub very little... the tj flares give you alot of clearance maybe bump it up with a 1 inch daystar BL....

I would want just a little extra cash on top considering your are brand new.. what are his tires worth plus rims and what are yours worth...??? got to look at it that way...

also what do you do with it? 35's can be very hard on a jeep that is not set up properly....

I wouldn't do it unless the extra tire diameter and MT tread pattern are worth the value difference to YOU based on how you wheel your Jeep. You could probably sell your tires and then just upgrade to a MT model in a 33 for a little more $$$ and not have to worry as much about rubbing. Then you get to keep your rims.

By chrome, do you mean your Mickey Thompson's are polished alloys? Or a chromed steelies? Only reason I ask is because I went from having steelies to alloys and won't ever go back. Granted I have a 4 cyl, I gained a bit of power back and handling/braking improved with the decrease in weight.

You'll for sure need a 1" BL on top of the TJ flares. It's the exact set-up I'm running (minus TJ flares up front) and I rub up front, considering how much I rub TJ flares won't even give me enough clearance. Close, but not enough...

Depends on your gears too. thirty fives take some lower gearing to roll. Four tens at least, or say goodbye to fifth gear.

I'd still keep what you've got. The set-up you have now, IMO is much better looking, and worth more money. MT alloys look sick!

Even with the 4.0, you'll probably notice the difference in weight and added tire

Ya keep the 33's bro. I think what you have is a better looking set and the Coopers I got with my Jeep ran forever.
