used tires?

anyone upgrade their factory wranglers and need to get rid of them? i really need tires bad, but working 3 hours a day and living alone doesnt allow me the cash for them. (one reason i hate school is that im constantly broke) any help would be great, i can some up with shipping, and maybe a little more.

Someone step up for xmas time. I gave Discount my tires after 15K when I upgraded and sold my rims on Craigslist. I did not want the used tires taking up space in the garage because I knew they would be hard to sell.

realisticly, $50 to 100 would be the BEST i could do, and even that may be pushing it.

heres the situation, bought an RR lift back in march when i got the jeep, prior to attending school. never had a chance to instal it until almost a month ago. while instaling it one of my classmates noticed that i had picked up a screw; OK, not normaly a problem to fix i had all the equipment at my disposal to patch it up my self, and i have been trained on how to properly do it, however, unfortunately that screw had entered RIGHT on the edge of the tread where it technicaly becomes sidewall. teacher saw that and wouldnt let me fix it, sidewall damage is unrepairable(safely) and he made me put on my spare before pulling out of the shop, said SUV+blowout=bad stuff can happen. so here i am now, running 3 well worn in H/T tires with maybe 15-25% tread left, and 1 brand new A/T tire with 100% tread, and a "spare" that is unsafe. the part that i am worried about is the wear on the drivetrain caused by the tires rotating at different speeds, which causes the differentials (rear and center) to be constantly turning. this is why on an AWD car they will not let you leave with only 2 tires. being that this is my everyday car, and i cannot afford to buy a new differential, im thinking that used tires are a better deal. people here upgrade their tires all the time, so i figure this would be a good place to ask around.

Ted did you try posting in the Wanted section? You may get a better response b/c tires are not WK specific so long as they are 245/75/17 or 235 whichever you prefer. You should also try some local 4x4 clubs' boards. I'm sure there are tons of them out by you. Good luck in your search.
