I'm selling my set of snow wheels and tires.I have had them on for two weeks and drove less than 80 miles.I bought them in September from a gentleman that had barely used them as well,he told me 300 miles.This is evident in the tread wear.These come with 11/32'' new and (2) of these have 9.5/32" and the other (2) have 9/32".

The wheels are the 18X8 Silver Painted Sport Edition F10 and the tires are 255/55R18 Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 4X4 RFT Runflat.These also have TPS's that work for 08-10 Jeeps.
I also have 20 chrome lug nuts to go with.
This setup retails for around $1400 new.One of the wheels has scratches on two of the spokes,you can see in the pic.I don't wanna fool with shipping right now,I would like to see who is local to me.I am not far from Baltimore,MD.
I'm selling these because I won't be driving the Jeep in the snow like I had once thought.
$800 Firm.Willing to help with local delivery.

What are the benefits from these and putting a set of 20" Blizzaks on oem/replica rims?

I'd text you Jake, but don't have any contacts currently on my loaner blackberry.

As I understand,first off the narrower tire will give you more PSI of load vs. a wider tire. That is supposed to help cut through loose pack snow/slush and get to the road surface.
I then found this which explains the rest better than I can:
Q: What makes snow tires different from regular tires?
A: Snow tires (also known as winter tires) have tread patterns specifically designed to dig down and bite into snow and ice, plus they are made from softer rubber compounds that retain their flexibility in cold weather, allowing the tire to better conform to the surface of the road. (Regular tires tend to get hard and brittle in cold temperatures.) As a result, winter tires keep a better grip on snowy and icy surfaces than regular all-season or summer tires.
All in all snow tires on our Jeep's seem to get rave reviews from those that need to use their Jeep in snowy conditions.Last time in the snow my Toyo's got me around,but seemed far from ideal in a few inches of snow.

I just put basically the same package on my '09 yesterday but with Blizzak DM-V1's which is a little better snow tire and non RFT which rides a lot better. This is a smoking deal right here. These should go quick.

BTW, got to play in the snow today for the first time and it's a beast. Punch it in 4 inches of snow and it just hauls ass. Stops on a dime as well.
