Jeep CJ3B Vintage Looking Skinny Tires

Postby Urbish » Sun Mar 19, 2017 6:58 am

I've had my 1953 CJ3B since 2004 and have been looking for tires for it for some time. I wanted a tall & skinny tire with a vintage looking mud and snow pattern (NOT Non Directional Military Tread). I really liked the ones on the left side of this picture:

I finally pulled the trigger this week and got a set of 7.00-15 Power King Super Traction II tires and a set of 5.00-15 rims (my current ones are 8.00-15 and are too wide for these tires). The tires arrived yesterday and are the EXACT look I was after: slightly oversize in diameter, heavy lugs, and skinny as can be. They were $83/ea from simpletire.com. The rims should be here later this week.

I got them mounted up this morning. I really like the look and it drives really nice. The rim offset puts them further outboard than stock, but I don't mind the extra stability. Now I need to get to painting that front bumper white.

I really like the looks of that setup, but if you drive in the places like I used to when I was younger that spare would have to be moved. Either mounted on the rear, or inboard. It sticks way too far out for some of the places I used to go. :weaping:
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

These tires were Armstrong met 700-15. I ran these for years. Still have them on my cj5.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
