Kinda off topic but you received your tax refund already? Who did you file with? The IRS just accepted my taxes yesterday that I filed with H&R block over a week ago. Waiting for my return so I can pick up a 4 inch lift, tires, and do the N242 transfer case swap with u-joint axle shafts and front drive shaft.

i'm going to have to call around to price out the mounting/balancing to figure out the total costs if i did go with the pumas

and BTW i have been checking CL... hardly anything in the size range i am looking at and everyone is just selling 4 and i want 5 (didn't buy the extra wheel just for ****s and giggles)
Ya I look at those tires and the ground hog are the best

What is the big deal about mounting non stock sizes? Why do retailers not want to do it? I didn't know it was a problem and when I buy tires i want to go up one size on my zj.
Thanks in advance for educating me.

i'm pretty sure it's just wal-mart.... it's an insurance thing and you can get around it by just bringing in your rims (though this can be tricky if you only have one vehicle)

pretty much any other place will put bigger tires on (though you may run into some common sense limits on tire size... like if you try to get them to put 35s on a stock ZJ)

U can do that but you won't have much wheel spacing on a stock zj we did that to my dads zj but we put 31 on it and u cant turn very well with with a factory lift on it to if you do put 35 on a stock zj u might want to get 3 inch budget booster before you do that

If you try to squeeze 35's onto 3" of lift you are going to be doing some major cutting.

I worked at a Wal-Mart TLE and it is an insurance thing. Wal-Marts are really inconstant though. My Wal-Mart sounds a lot like yours in what we would do and not do but not all Wal-Marts are the same. Some won't do carry ins. Some won't do anything but stock sizes no matter what the vehicle has on it. Some will only due non-stock sizes unless the vehicle has a lift kit. We had a guy transfer to our store and he could not believe we would put Goodyear Wrangler 2's on Dodge Durangos. Stock size tires but they are only rated to 35psi and Dodge Recomends 41psi in the rear tires.


Wal-Marts are like a box of chocolates...

Most other places will do what ever you want, within reason. Probably not gonna put 35's on your Civic.

Between the two, the grabbers. Retreads scare me.
Also look around locally. You may be able to find a nice off brand tire cheaper than you can get them at work with your discount. I bought some Trailmark M and S's 3 or 4 years ago in a 235 75 15 for a little over $220.00 for 4. I loved those tires!
