Tire Help - 18" XD wheels

I have 18" x 9" XD Cranks on my JKU with 285/65-18 Nitto Trail Grapplers. I want to swap out the tires as the Nittos are just too heavy. Dura Tracs seem to be the tire that most people have luck with but most of you who have them have only gone with 17" wheels. What size Dura Tracs should I get for my current 18" wheels that will get me right around? I have an AEV 2.5 inch lift. Thanks

295/65R18 if you want a 33" or 325/65R18 if you want 35s

Another popular size for DuraTracs is 285/70/18 (33x11.5)

There isn't a 285/70R18. Do you mean 285/70R17? Those are most definitely available for the Goodyear Duratrac. Toyo also offers the Open Country A/T II in 295/70R18, however I have heard they are also heavy.

Thanks - Any suggestions for a lighter tire other than the Duratrac? The General Grabber?

I've been looking at 325/65-18. 34.6 overall diameter. I'm looking for tires also and have seen good reviews on the procomp xtremes. I'm going with duratracs for their drivability though.

Yes, sorry, I was thinking 17s. My bad!
