Anybody around Amarillo tired of falling over a set of tires?

Decided I was tired of beating on my daily driver Jeep when I go to the river sooo....

Getting my Blazer up and running after about 12 years of setting and rusting.

Got it running, sort of. Needs some carb tuning, but at least it starts and idles. Rough, but it idles.

Before I take it out to the river to try it out I really need to come up with some tires. The ones on it are a pretty tame street tread, 33x1.25x15, and weather cracked at that from setting all these years. Put one of a buddies 35s on looks like they would work fine on the rear as is, but the front will need as much trimming as I can and then still hit under compression with the wheels turned, which is ok with me, I want to get some longer springs, lift it better anyway and probably get rid of the body lift that's on it now.

So does anybody have a set of 33's or 35's laying around with even a little bit of tread left they would like to get rid of cheap, found some on craigslist for $600, which I know isn't much for big tires, but more than I want or really can spend right now for toy tires.... I'm more than willing to pay something for some old mostly worn out tires, so if you got some let me know what you have and what you want for them please. If whawt you have is mounted on wheels and you want to keep them, that wont be a problem, I'd be glad to get them unmounted and bring you back your wheels.

15 unless, they come with wheels and still aren't more than I can afford right now. I have no problem with running a 16" wheel, just dont have any. Goal is to eventually get me some 16.5 hummer wheels welded up and run 37" hummer tires since they're pretty cheap.

Little more than I was looking to spend, but I guess I'd have a set of 16" wheels for my TJ in the end so that might not be a bad thing, although I dont really have any plans on switching from the 33x12.5x15 I already run on it. What kind of shape are the jeep wheels in? Then I'd have to come of with a set of 16" wheels for the blazer to. Anybody out there got a deal on 4 16" wheels for a blazer, still on 1/2 ton axles. Not looking for pretty just going on a beater river toy.

don't think I"m gonna find any wheels that I can make these work with other than some new aluminums that are gonna cost several hundred dollars so probably not gonna be able to make this work out. to bad sounded interesting till I found what some wheels were gonna run me.

trmn8r, I have a 33-12.50-15 on a 6 lug wheel in my back yard that you can have for 2 monster javas. It's some off brand that looks kinda like a bfg/AT style tread bout 50% left. Wheel is a steel wagon style.
