Looking for 33 inch tires

I know this should probably be in the classified section but i feel its hard to navigate and wont reach as many local people. I'm looking for a used set of 33s. I don't want to buy new because I don't know how tolerable they will be on my 4 cyl. TJ. Possibly willing to trade my 31s, plus some cash depending on the quality of the trade. Tires I have now are Prime Well PA100, 2 have a lot of tread, 2 are fairly worn. I don't think the previous owner ever rotated them. Been keeping my eye on craigslist and haven't come across quite what I'm looking for.

Not trying to discourage you, but most guys running 33s and a 4 banger are dissatisfied even with 4.56 gearing...for some even 4.88 is a marginal fit for 33/4cyl. Got plans to regear to match your new tires?

That's what I've been running into a lot too. Few people out there don't mind it tho. Not gonna spend the money on axles and regearing when selling my jeep and taking that money will buy me a nice 6 cyl.

Honestly, a good set of 31" mud terrains or aggressive all terrains, with a $300 lunchbox locker in the front, will get you almost everywhere you want to go, and still be drivable.

Yeah that would be a lot more practical. Hard to resist the urge to go bigger.

My wife went to 33s on our current Jeep when it was still hers, but I still run 33" ATs and mostly stock suspension (except what has broken or worn out), same setup for five years. I still get stuck, but I have a lot of fun doing it!

I have a set of 33" Swamper TSL Radials I have been looking to unload. They have 75-80% of their tread left. I want $700 for all 5

Sorry bud, already decided against it. Got plenty of other things to get to first before tires. Sounds like a good deal otherwise.
