But I keep waffling. . . I got a quote from a local shop for 4 37" creepies for $1600. Tempting. . . But I already have 3 35" mtz's, one brand new and 2 with more than 50% lined up for a total of $225. That is hard to pass up, because then I could wait for another deal one more or pick a new one u0p for $250 bringing the grand total to a whopping $500 for the set. Saving that $1100 will let me buy my cage and have $500 to put towards my ragtop or other goodies.

And my rear axle is already promised to another member who wants to buy it, the lockright locker for it, and my 33's as a package deal.

Alright. . . I am still going over and over this **** in my head. Keep changing my mind every couple of minutes. So, help me out here. . .

I picked up 6 35's the other day for a great price. 2 general grabber MT's, 2 wild countries, and 2 mud rovers. Plus, I picked up a brand new MTX (old version of Mickey Thompson's ATZ) to have as a spare AND I am picking up 2 used MTZ's this week.

SO. . . Options are. . .

Run the used grabbers and MTZ's.

Sell the 6 used tires I picked up (JF member already wants to buy them), buy 2 new MTZ's and run tbhose with the used MTZ's.

Say **** it, sell all the used tires and pick up 4 new MTZ's for $1k

Or say DOUBLE **** it and pick up some 37" Creepy Crawlers for around $1500

What to do. . . . What to do. . .

Ok, so I picked up the 2 used MTZ's this morning. So, let me know what you think. . . First pic is one of the MTZ's next to a grabber. Should I just run this combo, pick up 2 new MTZ's so all 4 tires match, or say **** it and pick up 4 new tires. If new. . . Which ones? I am just sticking with 35's though.

Second and third pics are of a used 35" MTZ's next to a 33".

Right, so I think if I go with used tires I should be able to find 4 in the bunch to run plus a spare. I'm just tired of searching for used tires. I want to be done with tires, so I can see if I have any money leftover for a cage and/or ragtop.

Tire discussion can be over now. I got tired of waffling and made a decision. You'll have to check out my build thread in a week or so to see what that decision was exactly.
