Thanks for the opinions, links and info... I am still trying to decide on if I want to go with the AEV Pintlers wheels.... They are about $225 a pop and I am planning on ordering 5 tires and wheels. I have heard mixed reviews on mounting 35's on the factory tire carrier? Does it rattle bad or screw up the hinges on the tailgate?
My JKU will be my DD and the treadwright's freak me out. I'm not saying they are unsafe, but the whole retread deal seems less safe than buying new tires.... I know people swear by them, but not sure I want them on my new JKU. I am definitely considering the treadwright's for my CJ7 though!
I am going to look into some black steel wheels which would save some serious money compared to the AEV pintlers and that way I could fit some nice name brand tires in my budget. I just love the look of those black pintlers! Why do I always have such expensive taste!?!
