    I want to buy new wheels and finally saved up and can get the ones I want. My question to y'all is should I buy them now or is it better to wait until I buy tires together to make sure I have proper backspacing?

    Package? you usually do better ordering your wheels and tires from different vendors...We did very well this winter on three sets of snow tires from Tire Rack (Firestone Winterforce UV Studded for the dodge pickup, Bridgestone Blizzacks for the JK Wrangler Sahara Jeep, Goodyear Duratrack, 285/75R17 with #16 studs for a neighbors Jeep Rubicon) and four sets of wheels, from three different vendors, Summit Racing and Quadratec being the cheapest.

    Now, if mounting, balancing and installing scares you, your local tire shop, would be glad to help, for a significant markup.

    I wanted to buy tires this summer. So Mayr I'll hold off to get the right back spacing.
