not sure what state you're in but here in Cali it's cheaper to get 4 general tires online shipped from out of state than buying them from a shop.

jeeperharmon I have the 31x10.5 duratrac. And If its light wheeling I don't have to shift into 4x4. I also have had them on since fall and have alot of tread on them still. Probably 20,000 miles on them so far.

Rubbing can be avoided by adding washers to your steer stops.

33's on a stock TJ would be very very impractical. Your jeep would perform very poorly off road and you'd have to drive over speed bumps no faster than 1 mile per hour lol

bfg all terrains are fantastic both on and off pavement. I was just shopping
around for new tires for my jeep 4 months ago. I would have gotten some bfg a/t's but Everyone and their mom has them on their jeep lol. I ended up buying 4 bfg mud terrain tires in 31x10.5x15 off ebay for 700 shipped to my front door.

You might also want to check out general's grabber tire. They have a neat tread pattern that allows the tire to be really smooth and quiet on pavement yet have really decent traction off road.

I'd get something like general's grabber if you plan on wheeling your jeep but still need to commute to work Monday morning lol

Crazyflyingplastics check out the Falken rocky mountains(or wild peaks-same tire). Pretty aggressive AT tire and will save you $$$ over the BF goodrich

Knowledge97 My last two sets of tires were 32" and 31" BFG all terrains, and I love them. However, I think I am going to get the Duratrac's next, due to better rain performance than the BFG's. The BFG all terrains just don't channel water and mud from the tread well.

If you get some wheels with a little negative backspacing, or get some spacers for your current wheels, you won't have any problems rubbing with 31x10.50's on stock suspension.

cork1958 I don't have BFG's but have Walmart Uniroyal Liberators 31x10.5x15's on my Jeep. I fell in love with those tires after the first time I put them on my 2WD pickup. Man, I could've sworn I had installed some kind of limited slip posi rear end or something! After I put them on my truck, I put them on wife's truck and she really noticed a difference also in the winter and her truck came with BFG's!

I really like these tires. Not TO aggressive and noisy on bare pavement, but they definitely get me around in the winter!!

Any input would be greatly appreciated! Also, and idea how long the Duratrac's will last?
are you running stock height??
