planned to shop for tires and an old coworker gave me these from his yj

I got 4 p275/60r15 tires for free that came off my friends yj and only have 1200 miles on them. Essentially they are 29x11s and will work on 15x7s fine because thats what was on my friends yj. The question is, how stupid would these look on my cj7 or should I just go out and buy some like the original plan? Need help deciding

That's pretty close to factory size cj7 tires I believe.

If your worried about looking stupid you may not last long in the off-road world.

Free? Why not run em... If you decide down the road you want others, get others. But this will keep the cj progressing in other areas.

Well, they're round. And were free....

But don't expect them to be great off road.

They will look way stupid. I can't believe you're even considering using them.

Send them to me and I will dispose of them properly.

Yep... they will look stupid. But they are free. How long can you look stupid for free? Where's your pride, Man!? Send them to Matt so HE can look stupid!

Here's a good thread on the perfect air freshener for your CJ, in case you're struggling with that decision, too.

In case you didn't catch it, that thread was created to poke fun at a new member who flooded the forum with ridiculously subjective threads, like "What color to paint my CJ?" and "Why are CJs cooler than other Jeeps?", among others.

He seemed incapable of making his own decision on the most basic things. When a few of us pointed out his insecurity, he got offensive and belligerent. He didn't last long after that.

I just don't want you to head down that path.

thanks for the lookout but its hard for me to get offened by anyone. I mean my profession is being a computer nerd so i hear it all the time in the agency lol. I think the hardest decision im facing is this tire usage. Its nice of him to give them to me free but my plans were 235s or 30x9.50s. I did buy the renegade decal kit, ordered some epoxy primer from summit, and bought a case of the 3m undercoating so i have a direction lol

Before you decide to travel across the country with them, check the date code. The date code is a 4 digit number next to the DOT number and indicates the week and year of manufacture. If they are 5 years or older I would only drive on them locally.
