New Duratrac 245/75/16 Pics on 2010 JK

Just got these mounted yesterday. Took off the Goodyear ST street tires for a set of serious Goodyear Duratrac AT. These are great size fit on a JK with no rubbing at all when turning or flexing. They sing a little and are more bouncy but that's just fine with me. Some have wondered what these would look like on a stock 16" steelies. Here are the pics, enjoy!

Those don't look too bad ESP. I ordered the 265s last night for my TJ from Sears. He told me $748 M/B out the door but I think he forgot to add taxes to it. I guess we'll see when they get here on Monday.

They probably did add taxes to get to that number because if they didn't then its gonna run another $55-60 bucks. You'll love the tires man! Nice semi quite ride (they sing a little) but it puts a smile on my face haha and they are wicked good off road. Put some pics up when you get em.

Looks great man. I got the 265s on different wheels. I know you had to be grinning after getting those on. What a nice difference putting tires on makes.

Couldn't agree with you more! I love em! Its nice to drive around and hear the tires singing to you and also know that when your off road, they deliver. Good feelings all around.

You mentioned bouncy. What pressure are you running? My duratracs run smoother than my stock tires.

I have the same exact jeep but in red and ive got the steel wheels too. the street tires are horrible ive already shaved off part of one on a rock. did u get the duratracs in the same height as the stock tires? i saw someone with duratracs 32.8 inches tall. do u think i could run those under the wheel well with no mods? i think it was like a 285/70/16 im trying to get the biggest tire i can so that i can get the most lift without actually lifting the jeep

These are 31", the original were 29" stock. If you go bigger than 31" your going to begin affecting the speedometer accuracy a little. Not a big deal but it won't be exact (can be re calibrated). 32" will fit but you'll have rubbing on turns and when flexing possibly. Here's another pic albeit with more dirt this time

No. The stock size was 225/75-16. He only went up to a 245/75-16 so it's barely any larger. You could go up to a 265/75-16 and then you'd be at the equivalent to the factory size for a "S" package Sport. You don't need to start modifying until you go bigger than factory sizes...like 285/75-16 and beyond.
