eh, I think 35" MTZ's are winning out after all. I found a brand new one a guy had as a spare for $125 and two that have 3/4 tread for $150. I'll just keep piecing a set together like this off of CL and forums, I think.

If price is a factor why not get surplus 37's run and groove them

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

eh.... I think 35's will be fine. Price is always a factor, but even if I go with brand new 35" MTZ's 4 are only going to run me $1k and I really like them.

Ok, so that would be $750 for just the wheels.... then how much for tires? You think I'm made of money here?

Ok, got a second at work to read more on Trail Worthy Fab's website.... So, with my choices I would need to save up $2409.50 plus shipping. OUCH! They would be badass, but I just don't have that kind of cash to throw down on wheels and tires. I'm looking at keeping my current bullet hole wheels and spending a MAX of $1000 on tires. Maybe some day I'll have the cash to go that route, but that day is not today.


8 Bolt Hummer Wheel Special w/TIRES Our wheel and tire package price tag starts out with your wheel. You add the options you want and we build them to suit your needs. You won't find a cheaper double bead lock and tire combo anywhere. We will supply you with the stock 8 bolt wheel, cut out the stock centers, supply you with new centers, weld in your new centers, supply you with a new o ring and a new valve stem and new flange nuts and toss on a 37" Goodyear MT, BFG Baja T/A, or Goodyear Wrangler MT/R in combo form. If you choose a wheel and tire combo with our PVC inserts we will pressure test your setup before it leaves to verify the package is functional. Shipping is VIA truck freight to your nearest dock in the lower 48 states. Please call to find your nearest freight terminal location and your inexpensive freight rate.

Selected options:
Centers:Pressed (3.5" Back Spacing Only)Bolt Pattern:5x5.5"Back Spacing for Flat Centers:--Rock Ring:Skull RingWelded:YesGrind Welds:--Outer Wheel Color:Hammered BlackInner Wheel Color:Hammered BlackInsert:PVC InsertTires:Goodyear MT/RsEdit options
$481.90 x = $2409.50

$375 is a great deal for three 35's, especially since its the tire you want. I'd jump on them if I was you.

This is true. If I can pick up a few more of other people's spares they're getting rid of I'll be set.

Or even buy another new one. Your still well below your $1k budget. Then you'd have 2 new and 2 at 75%

Well, I actually don't HAVE any money set aside for tires. So, not sure why I'm setting the "budget" at $1k. No matter how much I end up spending I'll have to pull the money out of my *** somehow.

Creepy crawlers or Khumo KL 71 MT's. I have run both, both are good. The KL 71's are surprisingly good.

I would LOVE to pick up some 37" creepies. I would take those in a second if I had the money. Did you run the creepy crawlers on the road or was the XJ a trailer queen? If so, how did they hold up? My worry is that they would wear too quickly. I can't afford to be buying new tires every other year. If I can get 5k street miles and around 20 moderate wheeling trips out of a set of tires I'd be more than happy. That should last me 3-4 years with the amount of time I have to wheel.

I ran them on my F250, they are equivalent to your MTZ's on tread life.

ah crap... looks like I might be getting a few $$'s back from taxes and I'm selling my old rear axle and 33" MTZ's, SOOOOOO...... I might have enough for 37" Creepies after all! Or should I just stick with 35" MTZ's and put the extra money towards something else for the Jeep? With new tires, SYE, rear driveshaft.... what else do I need? Cage? Sliding Ragtop? Other than those I can't really think of anything I want.
