The problem there is the VIN is also on the placard. How about buying a set on rims and just pick them up and install yourself?

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.

Thanks for the feedback

kenb1023 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.

Stop it immediately! Common sense does not make sense. I will now hold my breath and stomp my feet!!

(I have the 33x12.50r15's and lvl 8 trackers on my Jk and DTD was great!)

Trendsetter75 Exactly, Ive notice other companies have the Duratracs and they sell them for the Wrangler JK or JKUs.

TAG1 shop by tire size and do it online.....

And totally ignores the fact that other trim levels come with a tire with a lower load rating...

'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.

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?
Thanks.
I'm pretty sure we addressed this question earlier but I apologize if we did not, We didn't intend on leaving you hanging. A tire with a 108 load index does exceed the GAWR on all to date Wrangler trim levels however, GAWR is not a factor that Discount Tire uses to determine proper replacement tires. Discount Tire uses a higher standard.

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.

TAG1 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.
08-25-2014 07:12 AM
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.
