    Which would you buy first, given the choice.

    Full roll cage.....or.......the tire & wheel combo of your choice

    I would go with wheels because I am hardly ever in a roll over situation.

    Tires and wheels is what I would do. It just depends on what you got now. If you already have a lift and wheels and tires, but just want to replace them, then I would get the cage first. Just my $.02.

    I've got a lift and no cage, and shitty (I mean REALLY SHITTY!!!) tires and wheels now.

    I think I will go with the tire/wheels

    hey, if your tires are in that poor of condition then that should be an easy one... you are definately not going to need the roll cage if you don't have the traction to get you there...
