Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac - 33X12.50R15LT

Alright I think I found the best possible deal on these tires but now I'm obviously going to need some wheels. What is the exact size wheel needed to mount these on with proper backspacing? Is this an odd size wheel to find or are these the size everyone else 33's are? I'm probably just looking for some cheap stealies or maybe something nicer if I can find a good price. After buying tires I'm not looking to spend more than $450 on wheels.

Steelies weigh more but can be bought new for $50 and up a piece some alloys can be had for about the price of what you're looking dick cepek dc2's run $90 each you want 15x8's or 15x10's either will work 3.75-4" BS on 15x8's not sure on 10's

I'm running the dura tracs in 33 x 15 12.5 on a set of 15 x 10 aluminum Black Rock D909's. I think they were around $120. a piece and if your running the stock axels for a while the weight difference between the steelies and aluminum with the larger tires might help keep you from breaking an axel IMO.

i run the 33x12.50R15 duratracs on a 15x8 Procomp 1069s. much lighter than steelies. i've found two sets of aluminum wheels locally for $180 ea (10 total wheels). if you're patient at watching criagslist and local 4x4 forums, the deals are there.

I just got the Duratracs in the 33x12.5x15 (they actually measured 32x11.50x15 while mounted on the wheels I ordered with them) I got the Dick Cepek DC-2 wheels, 15x8 with 3-5/8 backspacing.

Wheels and tires together, mounted and balanced, with warranty on tires and wheels, with shipping from tirerack was $1326.22. ($1286.22 including the $40.00 rebate I'm waiting to get back from Goodyear.)

I installed a 2.25" skyjacker BBL with hydro shocks, when I finished installing the lift, I put my new wheels and tires on. I had my local Goodyear tire shop do the alignment check/adjustment. So if I have issues with the tires, that shop can't say the problem was due to an improper alignment.

4wheelsparts.com has the DC-2 blacks for 85 each. I just got a set of 5 and the 33x12.50 duratracs. I asked for discount since I was buying 5 and they drop the wheel price to 80 each.

Looks good - any plans for a suspension lift?

Nice...what do you think about the ride and the noise. Considering these and the BFG A/T 's

@DoubleTrouble- I still have some other things that are next on my list- front bumper,sliders, my in-dash radio is on it's last leg and some kicker speakers for the front, will come first. but down the road, I think I'll be looking at some Savvy 3" springs to compliment the Skyjacker hydro shocks that I just installed.

@aocabrown- I really like these Duratracs, they're alot better all around than the BFG T/A KOs that I had before them. when driving around 40-45 mph with the windows down or out and the radio turned off, on ocassion I can hear a slight "whhrr" sound, other than that it's very quiet and smooth. even with the lift and bigger tires it handles the road and cornering very well.

There's alot of sand here where I go, the BFGs would just dig in, (some say you've got to air down when in sand) I would have to use 4wheel drive to get through it, and it was tough going. but with these Duratracs I can cruise right through the sifty sand in 2 wheel drive without airing down.

Wet weather driving was a chore with the BFG T/A KOs they'd pull in the puddles driving in rain, and slide in wet grass (my drive way). The Duratracs are great in the rain, they cut right through the puddles and no more sliding. I have heard good things about the KM2s and almost got them, but reviews were alittle better for the Duratracs so that's what I went with. The pics don't do these tires justice, when you see them in person, in a size 33 they really look aggressive.

I run this tire and 15x8" steel wheels. Even at 25psi only the center section of the tread contacts the road. There's over an inch on both sides that do not make contact.

If this is a concern of yours I suggest getting wider wheels.

Other than that the Duratracs are awesome!
