Question Tire Change Before Purchase

Would any dealer swap out tires? I have never been a fan of the Fortera's but love the Wrangler All Terrain's I have on my 04 WJ. So has anyone swapped in new tires before delivery?

I would want the Wrangler All Terrain Adventures w/ Kevlar

Of course they will but it will cost you. Most dealers will not credit you for that

I'm sure they will..... For a price. Just depends on how much and if this worth it it not.

Re: Tire Change Before Purchase

Yeah I'm fine with paying a little for it, the Wranglers are a more expensive tire, but I don't want to drop retail for them. I was wondering if anyone here had done something like this yet.

Thanks for the reply's!

Re: Tire Change Before Purchase

Find a tire dealer local to you and talk to them first... I swapped mine out for the GY AT adventure w.kevlar and got a really good trade in with about 300 miles on the stockers. BTW... GREAT tires.

Good idea. Mind me asking what you got for them in trade?

They are great, I have the previous version on my WJ.

Just noticed you live in Cranberry, my best friend lived in Wexford for a little over 4 years. Love Pittsburgh.
