how is buying treadwright skimping on tires? they dont have one bad review

Dads gonna call early in week bout putting it on the ins. Im gonna have to try and fool the system at the dmv. I never turned in the plates. sooo. Im gonna lie and say I turned them in and instead of renewing the reg. Ill get a new one as if the vehicle was taken off the rd. Im not paying 235$ to re reg it. After the subaru is done. Black WJ is coming off the rd. Gonna build that. Needs a rear,a trans. get rid of the repezzpa joints. prob do a u joint front axle and more lift. Like 3in Iro with my 2.5bb.

Oh so I wanted to put this as well. In the last idk 2 months my jeep went from looking like this


Yes thats a 31 back there.
To this
My homemade lift. 4in front 3.5 back. Used xj 4in coils in front and spacer with a F>R swap.

TO THIS

Back saggy from 400lbs of junk haha.

4.5in IRO coils RC front lowers RE front uppers(Not on yet) IRO Rear lowers. Stock uppers (lame) JKS rear adj trac bar. RC front trac and bracket. Pro comp shocks Bar pin eliminators on the bottom. I have top ones to but Ill need to get another set of rear shocks for that so Im not worried to use them yet.


What you guys think. 33s? 31s?
