Procomp 7069 Wheels

Does anyone know of anyplace that has the Procomp 7069 Alloys in 15x8 and 5x5?

If not, what is a comparable wheel? I want to stay with a 15" wheel, if possible. It's for a 2012 JKU.

Try discount tire direct. They're a sponsor here as well

Forgot about the level 8 trackers....Seen them in person and they're sharp (15" on 35" MTs)

As soon as the tread is too worn to be safe on my OEM wheels, I'll be doing the exact same upgrade. Procomps or Level 8s 15" on 35" MTs or Duratrac ATs

DFW6ER, I gather that you're in DFW? I am, too. Who do you recommend for doing work on my rig, assuming I'm incompetent regarding install of, well, anything?

Join dfwcrawlers on facebook...they also have a thread on this forum.....you could probably get a few guys to come over to your place for an install party if you supplied pizza and drinks. I haven't used a shop around here, but there are 2-3 places I've heard come highly recommended....just can't recall the names off the top of my head. Post the question in the lone star state subforum here and you'll get a bunch of feedback on that.

I see you wrote above that you want either the MTs or Duratrac ATs on the 15x8 wheels, but what I am reading is that Duratrac does not come in 15? If that's the case, I may seriously consider bumping up to a 16" wheel. My rig is my DD and I really like that the Duratrac is a better road tire. Unless, of course, they do make a 15" tire and I am just missing something.

Sorry but they don't make the Duratrac in a 35 on a 15" wheel

I didn't know that either. Sucks because I like the idea of cheaper tires and less weight in 15"
wheels. Maybe there's something comparable to the Duratrac ATs that comes in 15"

The BFG AT is a very good AT that I have used in the past. Though not an AT, the pro comp Xtreme MT is a very mild MT that may suit your needs. I think General also makes an AT in a 35 for a 15" wheel

I'm only bummed because I've heard the Duratracs are quieter on the road. I'll probably just go with the Level 8 15x8 Trackers and the 35x12.50r15 KM2s. Those two do work together, right? If I don't like the tires I'll just endure it and get something different next time.

By the way, I don't see any mileage ratings on off-road tires. How long should one expect these KM2s to last being used as 95% DDs?

You typically don't see it for MTs. Friends of mine who have run the KM2 report good wear and 40k+ miles

Looks like they do make them in 15x8 though. I think I'll end up going that route through discount tire direct

Odd. That's the wheel my original post was about because I was having trouble finding it. Do you have a link to the wheel on DTD?

Sure don't. They're a sponsor here. Just go to the sponsor sub-forum and ask them if they carry them.

you're way better off going with a 16" wheel than you are with a 15. if down the road you decide to wheel more and you start tearing up your stock tie-rod ends (tie-rod & drag link) you're not going to be able to fit heavy duty tie-rod ends inside of the 15" wheel.

i know 15" tires are a lot cheaper... but take a lesson learned from a few guys that were running 15s, that are now running 16s or 17s.

just some food for thought.

Cost is not an issue. I just want to do it right and still get the look I want. I've had some concerns with the 15" wheels since they aren't technically supposed to work on the JKs. I have not made a final decision yet.

understood. personally, i started with 16" wheels. am back to 17s now... two reasons, first there are very few options for 37" tires and 16" wheels. second, big brake kit....

think about short term and long term... i wish i had. i'd have never started with the 16s.

^great information. Thanks for sharing. Maybe I will go with 16" wheels then. I do recall reading something a year ago or so about limited tire choices in 15". Makes sense.

Also, I guess the Amazon ad banner knows what I'm looking for...seeing ads for procomp, Rugged Ridge D-windows, and Cragar Black Soft 8s now. The later two are considerably cheaper than the Procomps. Anyone have any experience or heard any good/bad about the later two?

I'm going with 35" tires and I honestly don't think I will go bigger in the future. I like a functional vehicle that doesn't look like a monster truck on the road. I think 35s are a happy medium for me. Given that, are 16" wheels an okay option for 35" tires? Maybe I will regret it, but I'm thinking not. I pulled the trigger on bumpers, winch, tire carrier and rock rails today. Lift will go on after that and then tires. I'd like the tires to be ready and waiting so I'm not driving around a lifted rig on 32" tires for long. Call me vain, but it will look kinda silly ;-)
