Good road tires for a CJ-5?

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

Jim plans to purchase a CJ-5 and drive it a few thousand miles home.  He asked me what tires/rims I would recommend for driving on the road, because the jeep currently has NDT tires. I gave him some suggestions, however my research has been more focused on 10″ rims and tires.  Anyone have some suggestions for tires they like?  He might also be interested in selling the NDT tires and rims that are on it, which appear in good shape.

Anyone have Deestone D503 Tire experience?

• CATEGORIES: Features, Tires and Rims

Greg wrote me with a question for readers.

“Been researching tires for my Dad’s CJ3A restoration project lately. The closest thing I’ve found to a mid-sixties style mud tire that he want’s to use is a Deestone D503. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this tire (7.00 x 15), or perhaps has a more economical or even modern tire with similar tread characteristics. For our purposes with this jeep, visual is as important as off road performance. Oh, price is a consideration too. These retail for around $130-145, plus tubes, mounting, shipping, etc etc. One issue I’m having with this tire at the moment is the diameter.   29.8″ versus the 26 or 27″ it’ll replace.   I’m ok with slightly larger, but I worry about getting too big.”

Dan’s retreads from TDS

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, Tires and Rims

Dan forwarded me some pics of his new tires from TDS. He notes these are particularly appropriate for this jeep, because all his grandfather bought for it were retreads.  Dan did note how surprised he was at how difficult finding retreads was, especially since they are supposed to be so environmentally friendly.

“Here is my jeep with five new re-tread tires. I cleaned and painted the wheels too. The tires are 215/85R16 all terrain by TDS in Spokane. That was about the smallest radial I could find and the widest tire that would fit on the old 16×4.5 rims. My only other option was to go with a bias-ply and tubes. I saved about $340 by going with re-treads vs the cost of new. I think that they are the perfect height and width for what I was wanting.”

a little weather cracked but still ok tread
$60 for all 4 of them or just $15 each
