Pro Comp opinions...?

Looking at all of my options for a new set of wheels and tires for my TJ, decided on black 15x8 wheels with 3.75" back spacing and 31x10.5" tires. Was leaning toward Duratracs and yet to make up my mind on the wheels.

So, I was looking around Quadratec and saw their wheel & tire combo packages. What is the general consensus on the Pro Comp wheels and tires? The price seems decent for a set of 5. But, since I'm still a noob to this game, my idea of a fair price means pretty much nothing.

Any opinions on the quality/durability/etc. of these tires and wheels?

Thanks so much.

I bought procomp tires/wheels combo from quadratec. I went with the 33x12.5x15 MT2s. So far I love the tires and they have gotten me out of some pretty sloppy mud. After much research I read that they do not have good tread life. I can not say for sure cause I have only had them 6 months and jeep is not my daily driver. Before you buy anything from the big Q, call and make sure they are in stock. I will not go into my experience with them at risk of getting in trouble from a moderator.....again.

Oh, very cool. I live right on the border of Naperville and Plainfield.

If you get wind of any get togethers or trail runs and don't mind a total beginner tagging along, let me know.

I had pro comp 18" chrome wheels and 35" pro comp xtreme mt2 on my 07 tundra which I sold. Chrome accumulated water spots that needs to be meticulously cleaned (I blame it on myself though because i clean it twice a month...chrome needs a lot of TLC)...the tires wear like iron but very very heavy and LOUD which nets me single digit mpg on a 5.7.

If I could do it over again, I wouldn't do pro comp. they just gave me a great deal on lift kit, wheels, tires...and free install so I can't really complain.

Pro Comp tires are made by Cooper. Cooper tires are notoriously soft. I ran them for years. They do have some good designs but they just don't last on my applications. The Pro Comp mud terrains are the old Cooper STT mud tires. Their A/T's are Coopers old school Discoverer A/T from way back in the early/mid 90's. Both great tires, but they wear fast on a daily driver. I had them on a dodge 1 ton & they were bald at 15k miles. I have no experience with the Pro Comp Extreme M/T so I can't comment on them.

I'm not sure who makes their wheels for them. But friends have ran them with no issues. Probably made by Cragar or US Wheel. Its hard to screw up a steel wheel.
