I'm pretty sure that translates to 285/75R 16 = 33 X 11.50 X 16

@oaksmith
Your Jeep is sick. I'm not sure what kind of wheels those are but I like the silver trim. I bet that will cut down on road rash. Thanks for the extra jeep porn.

oaksmith OH by the way, yes the jeep is very clean under there! Just turned 100 miles when I sold the stock tires. Set on jack stands for the last two weeks and it is not a month old yet!!

They do extend but now that I seen it, I would say about an 1/2 of the tread and of course more if you measure the balloning sidewall. Still not excessived IMHO
Thank you sir!!

I'm anxious to see as well. I have a ton of life left on my 265 Coopers (as in they are new) but might just sell the whole package like you did since they are in such great condition and go with the Duratracs. You Jeep looks great btw.

There IS an easy way to turn it off:

American Expedition Vehicles - Wrangler ProCal Module - Additional Vehicle Features and Calibration Tool

You have two options. Live with the TPMS warning light and chime, which can and will be activated by all sorts of little quirks in the system...or buy a Procal and reset your sensors' sensitivity (or disable them altogether).

If you're reluctant to spend the $$ cuz you think it's too much to spend on merely adjusting your TPMS, take a look at the link. The Procal pretty much pays for itself in other ways, as well.

Your choice.

Bought the tires from Discount Tire Direct and didn't order the TSMS on the tires, but my TSMS light went off after a few seconds like it always did. I'm thinking I got a bonus!!! Is there anyway of checking if they did in deed but the sensors in by mistake?

It takes awhile for the idiot light to come back on, you'll still need a procal

Yep, mines already in the mail!
And to make things even better, discount tire direct made a shipping mistake that delayed them for a few days and credited me $100 because of it. They were great to deal with.
When you consider I sold my stock tires and wheels for 500, the rebate, the hundred dollar credit plus another 50 for being a forum member I got the wheels and tires for $1100 out of pocket.

ESP Just be careful man because the shafts are very close in yours vs previous models hence why TF makes/recommends the extension spacers for the new exhaust.

I think the key word is at full drop, I got rid of a 03 Rubi to buy this 12 and don't remember when a jeep owned be me seen full drop. But even if it hits a full drop, I don't see it doing any damage with the 2.5 lift

damndirtydog Me likie. Sharp look. Getting ready to change over to duratrac's too. Got a few more miles left on the 285 Nitto's. They look great in the picture and gives me a better idea of the actual look of the tire mounted on a jeep. Looks like ACE rock sliders? just put a set of those on my 09 along with OR FAB side armor.
Again, sweet set up!

I didn't, the 2.5 BB with shock extensions doesn't require it. TF will tell you the same thing, I emailed them before hand and they said no problem and it turned out to be correct. Sitting level, it looks like plenty of room before it hits the cross member.

cosmos Ive had my new tires and wheels for about a week and 150 miles, tpms light hasn't come on yet. I was wondering if maybe they accidentally put some in mine too because I didn't order them. The stems don't look like the factory tpms valves, maybe the system just doesn't work. Which would be ok with me.

oaksmith The thing that really confuses me is that the TPMS light is not staying on. If my new stems didn't have the sensors, wouldn't the light stay on?
12-20-2011 05:27 PM
3JKs1H1 TPMS changed in year 2010 - both physically and I believe to a new frequency. So a '12 sensor shouldn't work in an '08 or '09 model.

Here's a pic I took of sensors. The one on the left is for an '08 an '09, The middle black one is the newer sensor. Yours should look exactly like either of the TPMS modules. The newer ones look like inexpensive valve stems, albeit a bit beefier.
