Are you running 16 x 7 snowflakes stock? Wrap them in the km2's and keep the factory look with some extra beef!!

That's exactly what I plan on doing with mine when I go bigger with my tires. I'm probably going to go to 245/75/16 for my TSi wheels and maybe get some spacers, too.

FYI, the 265/75/16 is over 31.5" so it'll be a little bigger of a tire for you. I thought that'd be something else to keep in mind.

Got everything running, new motor, new transmission, and new Xfer case and clutch. Now my windows don't work, any hints. I've already checked the fuses.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

@aircruiser - So ur gonna run canyons and put the goldies away Tough call. Its alot harder (and more expensive) to find tires for 16 inch wheels. I wanted to put 30 x 950 bfg ko's on my snowflakes but bfg does not have them available. The guy at my local tire shop says a 235/70/16 will be almost the same in size. He offered to mount them up and make sure they dont rub on my stock height 95 lmtd.

Need a new thread for this one, What I WAS going to do my ZJ.

Looks like the money I was saving for a lift kit will have to go towards fixing hail damage to the ZJ and my wife's car. Mother Nature hit us like a woman scorned last night!

It didn't get that bad at my house to put dents but it was sharp enough to cut my moms soft top.

From ZJ to TJ.

yeah but i like the look of the canyons more.

pretty sure ill be going with 31x10.5x15s..but anyone know if i could squeeze by with 33x10.5 or 32x11.5? they are the same price for me but i dont want to trim..they will be going on stock 15x8 canyon wheels with 1" spacers.
