For those curious, the 2009 JK TPMS operates on 315mhz.
|09-25-2014 11:04 PM|
So for the TPMS, what's the difference?
I mean, for a 2009 Wrangler JK sport, what is the frequency I am looking for? 315mhz? 433mhz?
Also, once installed, should the TPMS automatically reset after a few hours of driving? or does it need to be reset when being installed?

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.

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.

|Espo78||Get the certificates. They cover pretty much everything, including off road use. I got some kind of metal shard in one of my tires and it was covered no questions asked. Duratracs are known for having weaker sidewalls than other tires so if you play out in the sticks eventually there is a high chance of puncturing one.|

I'm getting closer to ordering this combo and just had a couple of questions hopefully someone can help with!
1- TPMS, I would like to avoid removing the ones from my current wheels, so I would be getting new ones. Can I just buy any of the following and give it to DT when they mount everything? Or is there a specific one for my jeep from the list?
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

This would not be so much of a problem if the DT came in a 35x12.50r 15. I have the 33s and thay have 22000 miles on them. They still look like new and to me the best tire I have had in many years. Just whish they had a 35" in the DT tread. Is that to much to ask for?
Oh, almost forgot a pic. This is the Wall on the Imogene Pass trail near Ouray CO

|jeaoskibum||Nope the blame sits squarely on the lawyers that work at Discount Tire, they lack the ability to make a sound decision. They are mentally challenged attorneys who would probably make more $ by drafting some sort of release which I think is over kill.|

(I have the 33x12.50r15's and lvl 8 trackers on my Jk and DTD was great!)
|08-26-2014 07:16 AM|
Fyi - I am sure the DTD guys on here want to sell you all the tires as much as you want to buy them. I am also sure they know the issues everyone keeps bringing up about the differences in models and load rating. I am sure they know, as well as we all do these tires are safe for EVERYONES Jeep.
Arguing with them, or trying to convince them to say yes your right will not happen. They are doing what they have to do for their job. Its not their fault. They happen to be great people who have helped a lot of people on this forum. They are caught between a rock and a hard place because corporate made a change (or more likely found out what was going on and came down on these guys) and are making them enforce the load rating simply to avoid any excuse for a lawsuit.
Shoot, it is possible some selfish jerk actually did sue them and ruined it for us all. Thats who we need to be mad at

|Trendsetter75||Exactly, Ive notice other companies have the Duratracs and they sell them for the Wrangler JK or JKUs.|
|08-25-2014 10:10 PM|
shop by tire size and do it online.....
|08-25-2014 07:01 PM|
'Round and 'Round we go.....
Just because Discount Tire won't sell you the tires doesn't mean they are unsafe. Buy them elsewhere, or don't tell DTD what kind of vehicle you have.
|08-25-2014 06:21 PM|
To ensure your tires can carry at least the same amount of load as they can when the vehicle is purchased new, our standard for replacement tires is based off the weight the original tire carries when set at the placard air pressure.

Just order the Tire online and check out!
By the way, I also have the -30....they look awesome!!!!!!! If I would be you, I go for it.

|Trendsetter75||I have the Tracker 15x8 -30 wheels, all I need is the GY Duratracs 33/12.50/15. I didn't want to opt out of the Duratracs and go with BFG KM2, because I had the KM2s they are great in wet, dry, and treadwear but suck in the snow and noisy on highways.|

Can you answer this question regarding a load index? (it was already mentioned above)
All JKUs have the same Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (5500 LB). However, the load index of stock JKU sport is 104 and sport S is 113. 33x12.5x15 dura's is 108. It is clear that JKU can be safely run on the load index 104. I cannot understand your policy 33x12.5x15 is not recommended for sport S only because its load index is below 113. How about sport's?

|Dr. Evil||I have a 2010 Sport JK and purchased GYD's 33x12.50x15 with 15x8 Level 8 Trackers -19. The invoice said "33x12.50R15C2 108Q W GDYR Wrangler Dura Trac" and "15X8 5-127 -19MTB Lev Tracker MTB 88.5 JD". Why did I have no trouble with my phone order when I purchased in December?|

|TAG1||Or we help you on the specs and you order from DTD online,since they have a good promotion next week with around $300 Visa cards on a set of 4-5 tire and rims. On the Tire just go with the 33x1250x15 on the rim go with 15" and 127 5x5 hole pattern and a BS of 3.75 -19 or -30. The -19 will be near flush to your fenders, where the-30 will be out at about 2"more than the -19. From what I been reading on the last 92 pages is that you don't won't to go more in on the BS than 4 on a 15"x8"rim.....correct me guys if I'm wrong on this. But like Mike mention it's maybe time to buy somewhere else!|
|08-24-2014 06:48 PM|
|Espo78||What you do is BUY THE TIRES YOU WANT FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE. Maybe if DTD loses enough sales they will change that stupid policy.|
