Happy Saturday JEEPForum!!
Its time for new tires on the jeep. My rear tires are down to about 1/8th inch left and that isnt enough for me to be happy in the mud. I drive a 1990 XJ 4.5" lift currently rolling 31 1050 15 Discoverer STT (old tread style)
I drive her just about everyday just a few miles. I go back and forth between my car and the XJ. Everyday that i do drive it, I get her dirty. SO my tires need to perform. I primarily mud, dont have too much experience with rocks but I just moved here form Florida so this is my first summer up north, who knows where it will take me
On memorial day I will be driving about 150 miles south to the family farm with my wife and 6mo daughter. I will have at the least 2 new tires on there and this is where you guys come in;
1. Can I buy 2 new tires and leave my Coopers up front without some funky vibrations or harsh wear?
b. How bad would it be if the back 2 were 33 and the front 31? How would they wear over that drive and for about 2 weeks after until I bought the other pair?
2. My jeep didnt come with a spare so I will be keeping one of thet ires on the rim and mount in the back. (This means Im thinking of some cheep black rims but Im not sure what my backspacing is... ideas?)
I can either buy 4 tires at once, or 2 tires, 2 rims and new shocks all around before this trip. I would like to do 2 and everything else if possible
Can I Have your opinion of the below brands? My Budget is about 200 per tire. Some cross that line but they look worth it.
