Thumbs down i am in need of a 33x15 Duratrac...because i am dumb

so yesterday i went offroading near my house with some friends. was climbing up a pretty steep hill covered in rocks when i hear a sound reminiscent of a tire deflating. sure enough, im an idiot. tore the sidewall about 3 inches wide. tire is scrapped. would LOVE to have another duratrac to match the rest...now i know how badly 2 ply sidewalls suck. and the kicker: i lost my jack in some really deep mud a month ago while stuck, so i didnt have a jack. had to drive up onto a rock and manipulate the rocks to get the flat off. ANDDDD this morning, came outside to another flat tire....kill me.
interested in buying a replacement duratrac, or similar tire. or if you feel bad for me: just giving me one

should i buy a new/used duratrac or get any 33 in tire for spare?

and please spare me the "you are an idiot/duratrac sidewalls suck/why didnt you get a jack/etc." i am aware of my stupidity.

Maybe you should cut your losses and upgrade to a tire that can handle your type of wheeling environment. You could still sell the good tires to make up some money.

How old are your tires? Just wondering if they are new enough you could replace what needs to be replaced and not have it look too bad. If they are all down enough I would just bite the bullet and get some better tires with stronger sidewalls. Tough situation though. We feel your pain

no i didnt air down- didnt have any way to air back up before driving on the road.
tires have around 10k miles on them. i was thinking of selling the set of 4 or trading them for similar tires. havent decided yet.

That sucks dude. I think I'm going to buy a small air compresser for on board air. I used a buddy's at Rausch Creek that clamps onto the battery terminals that worked pretty well. It took about 5mins to go from 14psi to 30psi per tire. Not terrible for a 33x12.50x15.

Very true. This particular one came with a bag and was ~$50 on Amazon so its not bad at all.
