Good Deal on Good tires?!
« on: Jan 07, 2007, 02:13:59 AM »
I think I made a big mistake... My bosses son told me there was a set of 31/13.5 Super Swamper SX's (or SSR's?) on rock crawler wheels to fit the sammy at Les Schwab for $800 and he said they look new too!

Those tires are like $180 each and wheels are $75 from 4wheelparts.com... That's a hell of a deal and I could make payments!! And Maybe I could spring over my 3" lift springs with them too... Damn me! That was the setup I wanted, but $800 sounded over wellming at the time...

I bought my $1400 samurai in 3.5 months of payments, so I don't think $800 would be too big of a price jump... I have $250 for a first payment... I don't know, I am racing around in my mind right now. But I am geared pretty good for them too, having the 4:1 T-case and all.



Go for it or wait to buy some Pitbull rockers??

personally i'd wait for the pitbulls, those SX's and SSR's havn't impressed me much in the past. Besides your running a light rig and those sidewalls aren't going to do much for you.

in my experience with swampers on light rigs the only way to run them is have the cut.  :twocents:

If I do get them, I will get a tire knife from someone and cut some stuff out.
