based on the op's (1st page)
I can run 285/70/17 duratrecs
on the 17" x 8 offset 10mm rim above (4.69 backspace if i did maths correctly)
with a slight chance of rubbing only on full lock off road which can be easily overcome with a set of spidertraks spacers down the road..
is that correct?
|Today 11:10 AM|
Let me try this from a different angle.
Can anyone advise me on a set up with these conditions;
2012 sahara 4 door unlimited (stock)
for no rub on or off road
as big as poss.
so spacers etc
using one of these XD811 Rockstar II rims;
17" x 8 offset 10mm
17" x 8 offset 35mm
17" x 9 offset -12mm
18" x 9 offset 0mm
18" x 9 offset 30mm
then that rim with what duratrec tire...what combo am I looking at?
I am re-reading all the posts and am still thoroughly confused.
sorry for the nooob hassle
|Today 09:33 AM|
I thought the stock sahara rims are 18?
18 x 7.5 according to the spec sheet I found online....
but yeah just looked at tire size and they 18" rims.
would going up to 18" x 9 create that big of a difference in ride?
|Today 07:43 AM|
|jrtubb||I'd listen to those with 18" too, they seem to have been there done that. I've read many times about ride being pretty harsh with bigger 18". If you are changing rims anyway I'd go with 16".|

still hard to know what im looking at...
ok so the 30mm+ offset is closer to the stock rims offset is it not?
Wouldnt this be smarter to keep it closer to stock in the offset?
|Yesterday 09:36 PM|
|jrtubb||I have a correction, I do have rubbing at full left and right steering in the parking lot. I'll be doing the washer fix for the steering stops soon.|
|Yesterday 09:31 PM|
Did you try plugging in the numbers of the stock rim to the new rims too visually see what the differences do to tire position. It helped me.

lotsa info here...
still confused, mbbe if i just ask...
Im getting a set of the Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs
to put on a set of the XD811 Rockstar II 's
they offer to offsets;
18" x 9 offset-0mm
18" x 9 offset-30mm
I read the OP, but have a little tardo and still dont fully "get it".
I dont want to lift it, but dont fully understand the offset.
Need heps pairing up the rims with the tires.
want to go big with the Dura's, no lift, no rubbing.
the Goodyear people were pretty clueless, as was the dealership and Big-O tires.
any help would be awesome!!!

|jrtubb||My Nitto Terra grappler 285/70/17 on stock rims, no spacer, no lift are not sticking out past the fenders.|
|Yesterday 02:33 PM|
|cicatriz63||Anyone have any info on tire size/wheel combo so that the tires DON'T stick out past the fenders? I'm in PA and I know certain places don't care about it but I would rather not risk it. Was debating on just getting the stock sized duratracs and keeping the stock wheels, or going to a 33 with aftermarket wheels.|
|Yesterday 12:40 PM|
Thanks for the help and info!
Thanks to this thread I have Nitto Terra grappler 285/70/17 installed on my wife's stock 07 JK with no issues! The ride is very nice, better then the horrible Goodyear tires we have been putting up with.

For me it came down to 2 choices, GY DuraTrac 315/70R17 - C or MTR 35x12.5R17LT - C. As the MTR is a true 35" and was concerned with the only having 3.73 gears, plus the DuraTrac has a quieter road noise and better snow/ice rating, went with this. These seem to be very popular within jeep forums I've been reading since last year.
These should give a high millage life as there are very lightly loaded, so next tires will most likely be the MTR as I plan to swap the gears before the tires need changing.
Hope this helps?
|07-03-2014 09:36 AM|
just wondering would the load ratings, i.e D and E make such a huge difference to the JK?
I have a 2 Door stock and looking to get the MT AT P3s and people were saying b/c they are rated E, its going to get a little stiff and rough, is this true?? any ideas?
|07-03-2014 07:43 AM|
After tons of reading on this on the AEV forum http://forum.aev-conversions.com/showthread.php?t=3759 , the most suggested for mine on 315/70R17 DuraTracs is 28 psi. That's the tire pressure AEV engineers have tested their suspensions with for best road response, suspension operation and control for daily driving .... So I've read.
I've got mine set at 28 psi "cold", meaning tires temperature sitting in shade & at ~70*F. When i ride I notice it climbs up to 30 psi on 90*+ days and at 27psi taking off on cool mornings. Ride and handling is very good by my feel, the 2-door JK is very light weight for these tires. You can always do the "chalk" test on the tires and see how your "foot print" stands?

|gecko4||I had to have my e rated 295/65 18 duratracs down at 28psi to keep my fillings in my teeth (and the jeep on the road) Short sidewall + E rated tire = rough ride. I recently sold them and am shopping for a lighter setup.|
|07-02-2014 12:30 PM|
|nickmac||I'll try 32 and see how it feels.|
|07-01-2014 08:16 AM|
I'm at 32.5 with my General Grabber AT2, they feel less stiff.
|07-01-2014 07:42 AM|
They are Level 8 Trackers 15x8 5-127 19MTB which I believe means a 4.5" backspacing. Log on or call Discount Tire Direct (DTD) they are awesome and will walk you through the process and answer any question you have.
Check for information on your specific year, but I am under the impression there is no problem going to a 15" (alloy wheel) on the late model JKs, as long as they have the correct backspacing required.

Also a 33x12.5x15 tire (approx. 315/75/15) is the largest tire to fit stock suspension and tire carriers. If you want to go bigger now you have to start thinikng about rear tire carriers, lift kits, possible re-gearing, and etc...
I too debated going for a 16" or even 17" but the cost savings and the "look" of a fatter tire (more sidewall) brought me back to the 15".
Call DTD they are awesome and will walk you through the process and answer any question you have. Also do continue to research this forum for advice, it took me almost a year until I finally pulled the trigger.

any problems with changing to a 15' ?
Just wondering did you get any problems w/ the 15' wheels running on stock suspensions etc?
B/c I was thinking of changing to a 16' or 15' on my stock 13 JK, but was told it was not possible.

|BenoA||Guys with 33s, what pressure are you running?|
|06-20-2014 08:25 AM|
Thank you 4fit
This thread is awesome and the OP is exactly what I needed. I just ordered and received my new wheels and tires from DTD. 15" Level 8 trackers and 33" Goodyear Duratracs.
I do plan on adding a small lift kit or leveling kit in the near future but because I'm running stock suspension the advice here was priceless and many JK owners should be thankful.

275/70/18 Duratracs and 18X9 KMC XD Series Monsters posted by Footballready look awesome. This is the same set up I have been considering for my 2013 JKUS. I have been considering a couple other options with same wheels:
305/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers
I really like the aggressive look of the Duratracs.
I haven't many, if any posts about the 305 nitto terra grappler tire. Does anyone out there have them or an opinion on them?
