I hate paying for warranties, but for tires I've always been better off purchasing them. $150 is less than a replacement tire and if you go offroad at all, you WILL eventually need a replacement.

Jeep Matt Couldn't get a set of the mb72's, so went with the trackers and durtracs 33's (new combo). After hours of searching, 35's for unlimited, and 33's for 2dr, with a 2.5 inch lift or lower. 35's with a small lift would look really great, but 33's, blk on blk, look pretty decent as well. My .02

mjf23 True... Still running 33's here, putting em on is just a reminder 35's are a better fit for the JKU... but The Combo is a damn good upgrade from stock.

dkeven dialed in speedo from changing to 35's, set fogs as DRL, used the idle adjustment feature for winching a few times, changed tpms monitor to allow for the 30 psi i run on the tires now also activated one touch lane change feature just for the heck of it. Procal is pretty useful in my instance
09-01-2012 09:58 AM
mjf23 Drive to gf's house is 15 mins down the parkway, set at 45mph. I understand what your saying about over estimating the mpg's, hadn't thought of it before... Would like to invest in a Procal, but too many other upgrades to finish first. Just dont see much benefit right now other than dialing in the speedo.
09-01-2012 09:50 AM
dkeven cruise set at 45? could not take that for many miles, also if your going of the display mileage and not calculating at fill ups they have been known to over estimate a bit. Getting 17 average some town some highway some express with the 35's, I just do the math every fill up, adjusted speedo with procal verified with gps

WXman What I want to see is the 15x7 MBs with a 33x10.50 tire. That would be awesome.

Anonymark Back from the dead thread! I have 7,500 miles on now (yea don't drive a lot). No issues at all. I rotate at 5,000 miles and put an AEV 2.5 lift on in February. I love "the combo" . I have converted at least 2 other Jeeps I know also.

ESP123 or anyone else running this setup, do you get a "jump" on occasion? Since putting these on, I get what feels like a really quick "Jump" or like something catches for a brief second. Not sure how else to describe it. I don't see anything rubbing and the calipers seem to be fine...not sure what it is.

Overall, ride is smooth, no issues at highway speed, and after calibrating with the AEV Procal, speedometer is accurate. I did air down, cold, to 28 PSI.
Looks great, i have the same jeep. Going to purchase that exact combo shortly. Everything seem to be fine with the 15" wheels ans 33's? Thanks!

mjf23 Nice flame red rig.

Forgot to put on my post 2012 JKUS w/ TF Leveling kit. One of these days I'll figure out how to edit my signature on these forums...

No rub. Wheel clears the calipers, though seems a snug fit.

While shopping with the wife at Sam’s Club I found they too sell the GY Duratracks and can get them for me at $1086 and change. That’s a $265 savings but would rather have the wheels and tires come from the same place so need to see if DT will come close to the Sam’s price.
