TJ wheels? You should buy every set you can find at that price. That's easy money.

Yes, TJ. And that was before I knew what they were worth. There are a lot more available during the summer since everyone is putting on their lift. I can't seem to find any even for sale right now, so $300 may be a good deal. I remember seeing at least five sets last summer between $200-250.

Hes out a little closer to you Seth. I'm tempted to buy them and flip them since there's still a little left at the $300 mark. They usually go closer to $500 from what I've seen.

In other news, my corners are here and my part pile is now worth more than the jeep was when I bought it. I have a lot to do before Jeep Beach rolls around. 50 days and counting.

I know that feeling... I'll have more than double what I paid for the Jeep just underneath it when I'm done, and that's not counting labor! I don't know if I'll be in town for Jeep Beach, but if I am Imma try and make it over there.

I'm torn. Those or KM2s for about $140 difference or so.

Everybody I've talked to with the KM2's loves them too... I don't know much about the Falkens.

Never been a huge km2 fan, they're nice for mud but friends that run them agree there is something to be desired in the rocky trails, that and they seem to run small. I do however love the look of them!

Or.... Wait for the Falken Wildpeak MT's like me. But just based on what I've read/heard, apparently MT/R's are better than KM2's.

I too have heard good things about the new fallen tire, especially from koh. Maybe worth the wait. I think I'll be switching to toyos this summer if the budget allows

Had km2. Loved em. Very tough tire. Didn't blow even during an accident, hitting a curb at 45 mph after someone blind spotted me.

Loud though. And actually the 33 almost matched my friends 35 a/t.

Switched to duratracs... Never going back. Great water snow ice and sand tire. Haven't had the chance to rock or mud them.

Cons: soft compound must keep them rotated and heard they have a weak sidewall. Have to get a good bead too when putting on the rim. Had a guy at work mount his own on a machine and it washed off on his ranger.
