285/70/17 Duratrac photos?

Hi everyone, I'm almost done doing my (never ending) homework for wheels/tires and the last thing I'm having trouble visualizing is a 33" on 17" wheels. Would anyone happen to have a 285/70/17 Duratrac that I can see a photo of?

Thanks

Guys,

Just bought a 14 Sahara and I want to put to biggest tires on as possible with out a lift, which is my understanding from research this forum (thanks for the info) is a 33inch. @Americanjeeper, is that what you have on your rig, which looks great. Let me know.

Thanks,

Matt

I've got them on DCII's. Very little rub, only when backing up with wheels turned to the right. I will have to take new pictures since I've updated my phone.

Thanks for the compliment and congrats on your new Jeep. I am running 285/70R17 Duratracs on 17x9 rims. These tires look aggressive, perform well, and with proper pressure feel like you are riding on a cloud.

What's the pressure? I'm currently at 32. Not sure if it's where I want to be. The dealership originally had them at 40 until I asked and had them air down to 32 as a guess that they might be ok.

I just did the same by not reading your 2nd revised post lol!

Anyways yea if you notice I left a lip of the side on the fenders, I think it gives them a better look than just a flat cut in my opinion.

Not needed. I am sure some may recommend to eliminate all rubbing, but I do just fine with stock wheels and no lift.

It rubs a bit on the sway bar. That's it...the XDs I can only assume have less of a backspace so you should be ok.
