to use or not to use.....that is the question

My friend gave me 4 of these sidewinder radial tires that say 32x11.5 on the side. 2 are usable (were on front). I can get 2 more for under $200. Only thing is that they only measure a little over 30 inches as is (just tire, no wheel). Will it get bigger once its mounted and has air? It looked good on my friends jeep but am wondering on how high it will actually stand...

....that sounds expensive..

ok.. roughly $100 apiece for oddly sized tires? you can get new name brand tires for that.. if they were free that'd be another thing..

stick with standard sizes.. if i were you i'd go from 31x10.50 to 33x12's

Awwwwwwwwwwww... So he wants to go OFF-ROAD does he????

All tire makers make there tires a litle different so a 32 by one company might be the same as a 31 by another. Just because it says 32 or whatever doesn't always men that is what it will be.

When mounted it will still be smaller than 32. If your jeep isn't lifted then it will rub. Definately in the front when turning. If you are going to use these tires then I would make sure the other two you get are the same brand.

32X11.50/15 is a standard size.

brake/bearing problem was just that.. the bearings were replaced and i had to get new rotors so i sprung for the performance slotted ones and i now have no more squeeking (even after going mudding) and stopping is alot better. Sorry i didnt update but i didnt think anyone was really that interested.
