Do you have a 6spd or Auto. If you have 6spd with your 4.56 whats your rpms in 5th gear at 65mph?

Espo78 When I had the stock goodyears I parked next to a TJ on 33x12.5x15 Duratracs and the height was identical.
08-15-2014 10:43 PM
TAG1 I know we had this before, and I checked my speed with an GPS, it's dead'on. What I did not think about is how low the 33" will be on the car with the load. I will put one SRA back on tomorrow morning just to see what the difference in height on the car is. I like to think that the 17" SRA is taller with a load on the tire. Just a thought......
08-15-2014 10:18 PM
Espo78 Its been mentioned before. the Duratrac specs out to the same height as the factory Wrangler SRA tire. It's just wider and has the illusion of being taller due to the smaller wheel size. It's nice because it won't mess with your gearing or speedometer.

Also one point that looked funny is that the front that has the load of the engine is taller than the rear with out the load by an 1/8". When I measured the spare it's about 32.25".

TAG1 So from what I know after speaking with the DTD Technical Expert, I been told that the only Jeep that is a problem is the Sport S that has the 255x75x17R- 113S OEM. It is not a problem that is related to the car weight but to the tire that has been installed OEM from the factory(makes no sinse at all, but it's DTD's policy). If the tolerance is taken off a 113 tire, the minimum drop down will be 109….so all 33”x1250x15 will be too low by 1 since they are all 108’s. Again that is the way their system works and not the norm calculated based on the weight of the car that is the same as a Base Sport Model! So after talking with the Technical Expert from DTD I been told that they like to have my tires back, and will work with me to put me in a different tire. I was told that a Customer Service Rep will give me a call to work with me to change the setup.
Now the hammer….. when the Rep called on Wednesday, he told me that he has been told that I like to upgrade my tire (what I didn’t) and I told him that I’m happy with what I have but been told that DTD wanted the tires back since it’s not to their standard. He told me that if I’m happy with the setup he don’t care if I run this tire. He also told me to send him all the mails that the Technical Expert has sent me since it looks like that there are some misunderstanding about the topic…..”No kitting”. I told him that most of the topics had been discussed on the phone. I just thought that I would share the information I have with the forum, since it looks like they have some internal problem. I called the Technical Expert today but he is on vacation, so I left a voice mail to call me next week. I will let you know if there is anything positive coming out from this.

Thanks TAG 1

Espo78 I'll check with my sources at Discount Tire when I can. I had a tire replaced about a month ago and they never mentioned a backorder, of course they had the tire in stock also.

I'm beginning to think DTD is purposely steering people to a more expensive 17" wheel/tire combo on purpose under the guise of "safety" and that concerns me. I love Discount Tire. I purchased all 5 of my 33x12.5x15 Duratracs from them locally, with tire replacement certificates and never had an issue. This new change in practice is not good for business.
I been told by 4wd.com that they can not get the tire until end September...on back order, and this has been in June. The gave me my money back after one week. I think there is more to the story...!

It will really come down to the factory tire that your wrangler came with. Most models can still purchase "the combo" but we are recommend alternatives for others.

Each tire has a Load Index # on its sidewall.

The load index indicates the maximum amount of weight a tire can safely carry.

If we look at the load index of the OE Tire on a Load Index Tire Pressure Chart we can see exactly how much weight the OE tire carries when it is set at the recommended PSI from the vehicle manufacturer.

From there, we look at the new tire and make sure it can carry the same amount of weight at a minimum.

Not all retailers choose to follow this high of a standard but this is the standard that we choose to follow.


***Please note, for all other inquires and questions about tire load index and our requirements for your particular vehicle please PM us. We'll be happy to get in touch with you and answer your questions. ***

The important thing to focus on is that any models with the 17" tire with a 113 load index won't pass our load index requirements to run a 33x12.50R15 108. Alternatives are 33x10.50R15 or 35x12.50R15. There are also some excellent 16" wheel and tire combinations.

If anyone has any confusion on this give us a ring and we'll look up your vehicle specifics and explain the options.
That is what I'm saying Sport S not Sport. All Wranglers 2011 up will have a load higher than 108 except the base Sport model on the tires. Funny, the Sport S did not pass your load index requirements 6 weeks ago when I ordered my combo and you still sold me the combo! That is not a new topic in your system. You have never been able to order the tire rim combo on your web side if you put in Jeep Wrangler JK, since 15" rims are not an option for this car form the manufacturer! So there are many posts from you saying that it's not a problem and that you tested the clearance to the calipers on the 15" rims and that many other people are running this setup.

Again it's not a Sport but a Sport S. Any Wrangler excapt the base Sport model that runs with the 225/75/16 104S tire will have more load than 108 on the tire! I think y'all need to research better before you start something!

The 108 has 2205lb per tired the 104S has 1984lb per tire, and this number x4 per car.
I think adding the safety that is added to a tire from the manufacturer we are more than save with this Combo.

I'll be honest with you, my local DT tried to tell me this when I ordered mine. I referred to this forum and how many people have been doing this. Then I pointed out the difference in the 16" and 17" tires on the Sport. The guy was rational and saw how stupid it was to say no. Now I may not like it if they did push the no, but I know companies do things like this all the time.

I am just glad I got mine before all this really came up
