Ditto

I've got the DuraTracs also and I am madly in love. BFGoodrich All Terrains have nothing on these babies.

Okay so to the people that have had theirs for at least a year, how are they holding up?

Try them at 28psi. I'm getting good even wear, and the improvement to the ride was great.

Guess I am one of the few that have a less then stellar view on these tires. I had mine for a little over a year before replacing them. I guess my problem was owning better tires to begin with. Sure they are a very good upgrade from stock and even a good choice over most A/T's on the market but not even close IMO to many good off road tires on the market.

I had the 33X12.5X15 on MB Choas 5 15X8 wheels. I had balance issues from day one. I was able to correct this with Wheel Force balancing but regular balancing wouldn't work. This wasn't with just one tire either but all of them. Dry packed snow they did great on and they did great on normal trails and normal driving conditions. But on the other hand, they did horrible on wet snow on an incline and the same with muddy trails up hill. Many said I should have aired down on the muddy trail and they would have been fine which I guess is a good work around, but better tires take the same trail with the same conditions without having to air down. I actually took the same driveway with a large incline better with my M/T's in wet snow then the Duratrac's. The Duratrac's were all over the place and my MT/R's can take the same wet snowy driveway and muddy trail with ease.

So I guess it is all relative to what you think about these tires. If only comparing to truck tires like all season or HT and even most A/T's these are pretty good tires. But comparing them to more aggressive tires, in most cases I don't think they do nearly as good. If all you do is daily drive with very little trail riding, then these will make very good tires but I would recommend 16's or 17's over 15's for balancing and future mods to steering and brakes. Not to mention you can't get these in 35's on 15's.

JMO but I stick by it.

22 months and 15k miles. Not a single complaint. Tread is wearing very well and evenly, one tire at time of purchase was rough to balance but never had any problems. I 5 tire rotate them every 6k miles. Only thing keeping me from buying them again when the time comes is the lack of 35/12.5x15 option.

Most recent pic of the Jeep, maybe a month old. Tires holding up fine!

From what I understand, there's several arguments for 8" wheels vs 10", with only one good argument for the 10".
8":
1. Its safer to air down to low psi for increased traction without popping a bead.
2. There's more of a lip surrounding the wheel protecting it from damage like rock rash.
3. It's a little lighter since there's less wheel.
4. (Less important but still a factor) A lot of people prefer the bloated look, me included.

10":
1. With the wider wheel, its easier to get a good wear pattern at a higher psi.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure there's more reasons for both sides though. Maybe someone who's had both can chime in.

Holding up like iron. Can't say enough good about them. Have driven nearly them in every condition and I can't fault them at all.

Your review is very misleading. People buy AT tires because they use them on the road more often than offroad. On the road, you will not find mud. MTs are terrible (even dangerous) on snow covered (compacted) tarmac. Obviously MUD terrains are going to be better in the slop than ATs...no one is going to deny that. Unfortunately, they are not better on anything else. It is still the best tire available for the JK for those looking for both sides of the coin. Are there tires that do specific things better? You bet. Is there a tire that does ALL things as good as this one? IMHO, no.

Nice! I like the look of the silver/machined alloy on a red Jeep. I looked long and hard at the Razor before pulling the trigger on the black trackers for my white jku

Cool thanks,I was so undecided and I went for the 10" couple a months ago and its still a bit bloated but not much. I still like it

If I were to do it over again I'd go with a 9 or 10" wide wheel. I don't like how the outer lugs don't make contact with the road. And considering this Jeep is a DD first wheeler second I'd like more rubber on the pavement. But regardless with the 8" wide wheel they still ride, wear, perform excellent.

I know we want even wear, but technically less tire on road means a little less friction thus better mileage right? I want 12.5s for the look, but not for the added resistance. But oh well. We don't drive em for the mileage.

Great way to think of it. Offroad the outer lugs make contact and on road the contact on turns but are a little light on the grip when going straight. I have no issues with traction with these tires in any conditions. Maybe I would if I had a 900hp Jeep, but I don't.

Nope! Stock one still used, never had to touch it, the bumper goes in below it.

Saw 33 duratracs in person for the first time a few min ago in a parking lot, and they really do look like a mud terrain tire, even with a lot of wear like this guy had (they were at least over half gone and still looked like they'd go anywhere). He had em on stock jk 16" wheels, and I cant wait until I can get mine on 15" offset wheels. Its gonna look amazing.

A few questions. Those that have ran the 33x12.5x15 duratracs for a few years what kind of mileage are you getting out of them? Also since the tires stick out past the fender does it constantly throw dirt down the side of the jeep? I am looking to upgrade after the first of the year and really like these tires with the level 8 trackers but some of the comments make me think I should go narrower. Any wisdom would be appreciated!

They definitely throw dirt up past the stock fenders but dirt and mud look good!. Had mine two months now. I love them so far. I have the level 8 trackers also. :-)
