Specifically, 33x12.50 Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radial tires. Anyone have any idea (ball park)? I know there are sooooo many factors, but assuming my alignment is good and I rotate them as often as I should, daily driving my car on roads (and offroad every so often) in Ohio (lots of snow in winter, warm in summer, etc), how long might I expect to see out of 33" tires on a 2000 jeep cherokee assuming the lift kit and tires are installed correctly. Also, if you were me, would you purchase the 5th tire and rim in case I get a flat, or is it rare that I would ever get a flat with these tires?
any help would be great, i know it's a RANDOM question.
For off-roading, unless you have bead-lock rims on it, I say yes to getting an extra rim and tire. I've seen too many people pop a bead and have no spare. Although a bead break is easy to fix, (a spray of ether and a match) a simple swap is more ideal.
