Tnewcomb I'm also in CT and got the Goodyear SilentArmour in the stock size on the stock rims. Did not want to go any bigger but like the look of the SilentArmour and can hardly wait to try in the snow. The place I work has never cancelled work because of weather, however they did let everyone go home when Hurricane Gloria hit years ago.

Lol. That's how it goes.

I grew up in the Dedham area, but I now live in Whitman on the Abington line.

N3M0 get yourself a good snatch strap (kinetic) as well. that way you can pull all your dork co workers out of their spots when the grounds crew at your dorky office plows all their dorky corollas in

I'm in CT- we got that crazy October storm too, which made it hard to get to my dorky office, which is why I want duratracs!

Haha thanks. I didn't mean to insult your look- I just don't really like the look of the wheel wells so filled up. Plus, the 12.5 width is much more than I need/want. I just want some good snow tires/rims that I will install in early December and remove at the end of February. The rest of the year I'll be running (gasp!) stock tires and wheels.

Your rig looks great as a cool/tough offroading machine. I'm married and work in a dorky office, and no longer have any desire to be cool/tough

I won't be ordering for a while, but maybe I'll dig up this thread in the winter time and post some pics of the 31s. Thanks again!

Yeah I know that the 33s fit. Don't want them that big though. I should have mentioned that I don't like the look of the 33s on fully stock wranglers- they look crammed in there to me...

The question was whether I should get the same width wheel if I order 31s. Thanks!

"The Combo" Duratracs & MB 72s

Like many of you, I love the look of "the combo" on JKs- 33x12.5x15 Duratracs with a 15x8 MB 72 wheel in black. However, I would like to run smaller tires (don't throw rocks at me please ) because I don't want to lift or even add a leveling kit, and I'm mostly interested in the duratracs for their snow capability. Of course I also like them for their looks, but I'm not going for the super-beef look as much as deep snow/general winter on-road performance.
That said, I love the wide stance offered (without spacers!) by the MB 72 wheels, and like the way they look too.

So my question is whether anyone runs the 31x10.5x15 Duratracs with MB 72 rims. If so, what width should the rim be? Still 8 inchers? 7?

Thanks!
