so im looking to step up to some 33s. I need to be able to go through sand,rocks, snow and mud. (idaho has all kind of trails) do you all have any recommendations? i was thinking more of km2s or pro comp radial Xterrain. also i'm not sure about width 10.5 or 12.5. i am open to any brand so please give me your opinion. post pics if you have them.
NOTE: i don't care about looks/noise, function takes priority.
I have a 2000 Sport with a 4" pro comp lift, I6, d30/d44 and it is my DD.
so you say Duratracs.. ill look in to them. what kind of milage do you get on them?
I was just hoping to get some real feedback form jeepers, not just product reviews from the manufacture. all the reviews make it seem that their tire is great and will last. actual performance may differ. maybe i should have asked: What tires do you run and why?
what are u going to be using them for primarily? if its mostly highway/city, go duratracs. if u are going to be doing moderate offroading, go with either KM2s, MTRs, or another tire. i wish i had gotten KM2s...
Don't get the procomp they are terrible imo. My old man ran them on his rubi and hated them. now he runs BFG km2 33x12.50, I run GY mtr kevlar 33x12.50 couldn't be happier. . Buddy runs cooper discoverer stt and loves them
33x10.50 tires are not common and the only mainstream manufacturer that I am aware of that makes them is BF Goodrich in their all terrain and their mud terrain. 33x12.50 tires are very common and are dime a dozen by most companies.
2000 Sahara, 3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, 1" spring spacer & 1" Body Lift, 33" or 35" BFG Mud tires, Front & Rear ARB, Rancho 9000 shocks, UCF Ultra High Belly Up
Very happy with my 33x10.50 BFG MTs. I put them on AR Outlaw IIs 15x7, with 3 3/4" back spacing. The wheels push the tires out a bit from stock... so I used Rubicon flares to cover the tread (all but 1/4"). Tread coverage is required in PA... and I'm "close enough" for my inspection station.
thanks everyone for the comments, you all have given me some good feedback.
Lynn--thats a nice looking jeep. looks very functional.
ill be making my decision in OCT/NOV when i save some money..
so please keep the thread going.
Dude, did you just blow out the left rear in the pic? I would be surprised if the bead didn't let go, damn.
I plan on going to 33s this fall and am having the same questions. I really want the KM2s but they are not siped so I have no idea how they will handle the icy/slushy/snowy roads here in CO. Been considering the Duratracs but heard you can only expect 25k miles on them, not sure how true that is. I also like the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs, look good and have a good reputation.
