flyfishnevada I understand why they are doing it, but it's dumb. Just because the load capacity on the Sport S tires is a bit higher than the tires on the other models, they won't sell you 33x15's. Rubicon, Willy's, Sahara are the same darn thing, heck they might even be heavier with all the options. Thank the lawyers for that bit of stupidity.

If you got to a DT store or call DTD and tell them you have a Sport S, you're screwed. I'd tell them I had some other model.

" There are no tire models in the 33x12.50R-15 size that meet the load carrying capacity of the original equipment tires that came on your Sport S model. If you want to go with a 15" package you're options are to bump up to 35x12.50R-15 tires or run 33x10.50R-15 tires. 32x11.50R-15 tires will work as well. Another option to consider is a 16" wheel and tire package. We have the 16x8.5 Tracker available and can pair it with the 285/75R-16 DuraTrac tires. Let us know your thoughts."
Due to this new restriction on 33's, is any discount available for the 35s that are recommended? What about past purchases of 33's for JKU sports?

vive86 Yea Im getting the combo for sure. Wont be for alil while but will be getting that set up. I love the way it looks.

Don't..... just order online or call them and don't let them know that you have a Sport. Tell them you have a Base, Sahara, or a Rubicon.
They don't know the difference............
I can only speak for my self, I love the Combo and have no problems at all(no rubbing before or after lift, no vibration, and the tire is not noisy at all)

Love them so far, and the tires were all made on the third week of September. Install was a breeze too.

Thanks DT

thanks
I can only talk about the 33x12.5x15 on -30. Have 3000 mil. on them and have absolutely no vibration. Been driving up to 80 mil/hr. I had my tires put on the rim and balanced at Wal-Mart. Reason has been since I ordered 5 new OEM TPM's at ebay ($85) for less than half the price DTD ask for.

As mentioned above, and according to the GY website, a 315/70R17 measures 34.4x12.7x17. I'm hoping to pick up a set to use as my winters...but they probably won't come off in the spring.
I don't think the extra inch of side wall would make much of a difference. If it did then just beef up the side wall a bit.

Replying to your PM.

For those curious, the 2009 JK TPMS operates on 315mhz.

That's what I'm thinking as well but also not just winters as I am planning a possible trip to Moab in May

2009 JEEP WRANGLER Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Sensor

2- Certificates, can anyone chime in to using them to get a replacement? Any issues or causes that would not make DT replace tires?

Thanks everyone, hope to be able to have these awesome wheels on my Jeep soon
The Level 8 Tracker accepts aftermarket TPMS sensors. Any of the sensors linked above should work. We also have TPMS sensors available at competitive pricing.

As far as our certificate coverage goes, like Espo78 noted, it's worth it. I work here and add this protection to all my tires. If you damage a tire beyond repair, outside of vandalism or willful abuse, the tire is replaced for FREE.
