taller, narrow tires

Hello friends. I am driving a 79 cj5. I want to replace the tires with something taller, 32" is what I am thinking.

I like the narrow tires on it now and have been looking around for a 32 or maybe 33 inch tall tire but I want it to be narrow. Any Ideas?

Who make a narrow 32-33 inch tire?

Thanks, Sahara. I'm of to look for "Swampers". Super Swampers I'm sure. You will have to forgive me, I just sold my MG and used the money to buy the CJ. I should have done that Long ago.

In my defense, My wife wanted the MG. I bought it and got it running. She left, so I sold it and bought a Jeep.

Most of the options in 32" are narrow. 33's can be had around 10.5 probably 9.5 too. Narrow rims will make tires look skinnier, wide rims, fatter.

Swampers usually suck on the road unless balanced perfectly and wear off quickly.

I wouldn't say that they suck, they are noisy though. The smaller skinnier sizes aren't bad to balance.

Yes your right, I shouldn't have generalized all of them. My 33" tsl's sucked, would not balance out, death wobbled, wore quickly... I put 34's on it for about a week and they rattled half the bolts out of my Jeep lol.

Back when I had my '77 "Steppenwolf" Jeep, I ran these Ridge Runners, P78x15




that were very much like Buckshot Wide Mudders of old, and while they could wander a bit there was never any issue in balancing them. However these days I've noticed that some shops either don't keep their machines calibrated or the personel using them don't know what they're doing.

The parts shop that stocks part for Skylab II will not have parts for our year/model of Jeep

Lucas Electrics?

The reason why Brits drink warm beer? Lucas makes refrigerators too.

Geeez! From the pot and into the fire! Do you know how hard it is to get AMC smoke to put back into the electrics?

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
