Question about 2003 Jeep Wrangler
2003 Wrangler Sport 4.0 Auto-Transmission- Not lifted -
Purchased my jeep from dealer with 30x9.5R15 all-terrain white-letter tires, alloy wheels (Goodyear Wrangler GSA).
I have 72,000 miles and have already replaced all 5 tires once. I do not like the performance on wet roads.
I do about 70% / 30% on road & off road. Off road consists of mostly MidWest fields with mud. (I hunt a lot in Illinois).
I tow a 23' aluminum duck boat to Mississippi River during the fall.
I have about a $475.00 budget for four tires. (I could go a little higher if there was value in doing it).(I will make due with the better of the old tires for a spare right now).
Question 1). What tire do you suggest?
Question 2). How much tire can the alloy wheels hold? (Like width, Height?
Question 3). Will the vibration disappear with new tires & realignment?
Question 4). How can I tell if I have a Dana rear axle?
Question 5). If I buy an early 1980's like my first Jeep, as a project Jeep, will my wife leave me?
1) If you want performance in the rain, you need an all season tire.
2) I had 31x10.5 on my Jeep.
3) The vibration could be a bad steering damper.
4) Dana rears are almost ablong shaped on the cover. The other is perfect round shape cover.
5) Tell your wife the Jeep is for her.
