What sounds like the better deal???

I am having a hard time deciding which deal to make. My plan was to upgrade to some 33 inch mud terrains, but because I don't have the cash to buy them new, I'm having to scope the local trading post for whatever I can get. I've found two great deals but I don't know which to take. This is where ya'll come in...here they are: 1. (4) 33 x 12.5 Regal Trailblazer AT's (I think they are a BF Goodrich offbrand) for $200. They have less than a 1000 miles on them. 2. (4) 32 x 11.5 Regal Trailblazer Mud Terrains on (4) 15 x 8 America Racing 767's (Black rims)for $375. These were bought by the guy in October and used for just two months and were pulled off his ride in December and have just been sitting. So, what do ya'll think???

Go with deal #1. You said it yourself, you want 33's. If you got those 32's you may regret it. By the way, how is that rough country lift?

I'm loving the lift...it rides great. I haven't had a chance to really try it out because I'm still running with the stock brake lines (don't want to press my luck). The one thing I'm a little worried about with the 33's is the gearing and loss of power (I'm running stock gearing now). And if I buy the tires in deal number 1 I'm gonna have to buy new wheels cause I'm running 15 x 7's right now...OH THE DECISIONS!!!

The gearing will be fine. Tons of people have your set up with no complaints. I have heard before the Regals are BFG offbrands. A friend of mine has the Regal M/T's on a fullsize Dodge and after 40K are bald as can be.

I say you get the 33's and I send you a check for those 32's with rims and you send 'em over here.
