Those Tactik wheels look really familiar.

kluttsy01 Yesterday I fixed my fuel gauge (broken wire infront of fuel tank) fixed my oil pressure gauge (had to change the sending unit for a gauge style cluster in place of a dummy light) new front pads, and an oil change. Then just got a new set of wheels ordered that should get here just in time for the lift to be done.

Luke95 I run a 13.5 on 8 widescreen and run them at like 4.5 to 6 psi. I have taped the beads and just send it.

I did an Ebay search for simulated beadlocks and went with the best (cheapest) deal. I had the same wheels in 8" on my 05' TJ. Pro Comp wheels. I got my XJ steel wheels at Quadratec for $39.95 each last year. I went with black satin instead of my usual gloss black.

Tire shops around here wouldn't ever mount them (liability issue). My new 8" wheels on my XJ were only $160 (4) with the center caps.

A washer on the steering stops worked on my 99' to fix that problem (rubbing at full lock). A friend's Jeep with 33x10.50s and stock wheels. He didn't even have to trim the plastic up front.

Meh I shouldn't have to worry about airing down too much, most thing we do around here is mud and a little bit of trails. But what would be so bad about airing down with that setup? Genuinely curious.

You'll blow a bead and have to reseat the tire on the trail, if it's not damaged. Regardless, that wide of a rim is going to buckle the tread and cause you premature tire wear.
