you can get e-rated duratracs also... 315/75 r16s are e-rated. i wheeled those for over a year... awfully (painfully) hard on the side walls and my rims... no issues.

You prefer the duratracs over the Nitto/Toyo?

nope. I am extremely happy with my toyos. there are surprisingly quiet for a mud terrain tire on road and perform off road. maybe my only complaint is the weight. but I can live with that. they're e-rated so I air them way down with the stiff sidewalls - I go to 10psi without bead locks without much worry...

I have been running 33x12.50x15 Toyo Mt's for over 5 years with no issues. This year I have wheel once and put on a lot of road miles on them. I live in Northern Washington and get a lot of rain which means a lot of mud. On the trails I run around 10-12 psi on my 4000 lb TJ on steel wheels no bead locks. Only lost a bead once due to large rock pushing on sidewall. They did well in snow, rain, mud, rocks and have worn very well. I would guess that I have put around 50k miles on them. The down side as others have mentioned is they are HEAVY. 15x8 steel wheel and one Toyo tire scales in at 100lbs. I would run them again but I will be switching to a lighter tire. Although I may still buy another set.

I want my tires to stick out on the sides.. But I don't want to get spacers because I've heard nothing but bad news comes with them. How do I make sure my tires will stick out without buying some and finding that they dont?

Buy new wheels with 4.5" of backspacing or less.

3.75 or 3.50 is probably best. if you decide to get aftermarket control arms... and you're gonna wheel... 4.5 might still rub your arms when you disco. mine did. so I'm running 1" spacers at the moment (and wheeling without issue). gonna get some 3.5" beadlocks in the future.

What does the backspacing actually do?

backspacing is the offset of your wheel. it's what "kicks" the wheel out, away from the body, brakes, and suspension. when you add a lift, wider tires, aftermarket arms... you need to increase your backspacing.

stock bs is 6 something. going from 6 something to 4 or 3 something increases the bs and moves the tire away from the jeep.

Okay thank you! I'm still very new at this so I'm sorry if I asked a stupid question

no stupid questions around here. we all started in the same place you're in. most just are a bit reluctant to admit that.

if you have questions, post them up... we'll get you squared away in no time!
