tire question

I have a set of regul trailblazers on the yj now, but I noticed one is cracking bad and I am scared its getting ready to blow.. It looks fragile..lol Anyone know where I can get a replacement. Cant seem to find one. The other 3 are like new. If I cant find a replacement. What is a good 31x10.5 at the best price for a dd that may see mud occasionally.

Try Craigslist.com. You should be able to find what your looking for.

nobody seems to sell them anymore. I got the ones I got in 2001. Well the jeep sat on jack stands since then until 2 months ago. Maybe its the sign I need a lift and bigger tires

Oh well i would still check the local tire stores. sometimes they stock used tires. And used tire stores. Just call around to all the tire stores around you and ask. Worst they can say is no. Are you all stock right now? If it were me, I'd get a good reputable tire. I just bought 4 35"x12.50 BFG Km2 Mud terrains. All four for like $980 bucks mounted and balanced and out the door. Might sound steep to some people on a budget, but really its a great price.

I was looking at the 33x12.5 with a 2.5 inch lift. Is that enough lift? I do not wheel much just the occasional weekender..

Honestly, I wouldnt go with that big of a tire. Every lift states that for a 2.5 lift a 31 or 32" tire max is recommended. A 4" lift recommends 33's. I have a 4" lift and a 1.25 shackle, and I barely clear 35s. I clear them though with tube fenders up front and the proper bumpstops in the rear until i get my rear fenders/crusher corners.
