EDIT: My Soft 8's and centercaps are ordered and on their way. NTB wouldn't price match what I had and I couldn't find any decent priced Km2's so nothing with tires yet. Started to make deals with Chuck at 4wheelparts (who was good to work with by the way) on some MTZ's but he couldn't get them here in time for my trip Monday, so I backed off to weigh out my choices. Maybe i'll be able to find something at the PA Jeeps Show on Saturday.

Oh, and my vibes ended up not being my driveshafts but just all of my wheels being reaally out of balance.

why not just keep your classic locks with an exposed rim now you take the chnaces of bending a steel rim, sure there cheaper to replace but anyway, i think they look better on your jeep (classic locks), im waiting to see of i can get a deal on some mtz's or km2's at the show. everybody and there brother has those soft 8's. better yet save up for some aev beadlocks im saving up to eventually get them for mine

I just want some black wheels with more backspacing. I should make some money selling the classic locks and buying steelies too.

if your are really in a pinch you can always try to work something out with q-tec tommorow as their warehouse is in west chester,pa

but they don't carry bfg's so that doesnt help to much!

Wellll I just ordered 33x12.5r15 MTZ's from Quadratec. I know they aren't the best place and I'd have much rather bought them from red rock or somewhere like that, but Quadratec matched a good price for me and dropped $80 worth of shipping fees. The main reason though is he said Tuesday at the latest.

It's about two hours from me, and I literally was going to do that, but he didn't have them in stock so I couldn't. Than he said since they aren't in stock, he'd ship them and wave the $80 surcharge.

Gonna look good. for your MTZ's i say You should put the white outlined letters out. Give Your white Jeep a little contrast with the black wheels

I've thought about it...not for very long though ; black wall is definately going out. Never really been a fan of the white letters out.

Yeah i feel that im more of a blacked out kinda guy now but when had my bfg m/ts i opted white out and gave it a little contrast. Didnt have a choice with my Mud Grapplers. Your in Maryland. It usually takes a day to ship stuff out from Quadratec and the day after its at my house. And Im on the eastern shore.

Had fun at the Jeep show today, forgot the camera though. I think I'll be going back up tomorrow but I don't think i'll take my jeep due to the fact that I can't easily put gas into it due to the melted gas tank vaccum lines. : All this sh*t is really stressing me out right before my trip to the beach this week.

On a better note, my wheels came today. Just your run of the mill Cragar Soft 8's.
