[QUOTE=kbwwolf;2698189]A good starting point for 33's and 35's is 32PSI. Then adjust up or down, depending on what the chalk tells you, from there.QUOTE]
On the TJs with 33" Duratracs and a soft top, you'll find that 26 to 28psi is about right. Any more than that and it feels like you're driving on wooden wheels
I run mine at 26 psi.

Here's a link that probably explains it better: How to Chalk Tires | eHow.com

WOW! Thanks man! Lots of quality input there! not to mention pretty much everything you mentioned applies to me (snow, slush, mud, heavy rain, etc) after all its saskatchewan baby! the only place in the world that goes from -47c to +38c in one year, but I love it and I wouldnt have it any other way Ohh, by the way, whadda ya mean the chalk test. Imma little new here..

The Duratracs are, hands-down, the best snow/rain tire I've ever had. I've had no issues with them in deep mud, snow/mud/slush combos, on-road or off. Not a lot of big rocks here in Wisconsin, though.
Do a chalk test on em to get the proper PSI (dealers and tire shops will generally overinflate em), and they'll wear great. I run mine at 32 PSI on pavement.
My 315's are a little over 34" in actual height.
Also, Kelly Safari TSR and Fierce Attitudes are sister tires to the DuraTrac. Easier to get, sometimes, and cheaper. Pretty much the same thing as the DT's, when you get down to it.

|Renagade119||There we go, I knew they looked familiar! But I wanted to know bout the Duratracs...|

These are duratracs
|08-17-2012 05:48 PM|
My Jeep came with the Duratracs and I have so far been super happy with them. I have the 33x12.5-x15 on a 4.5" Lift. Little loud on the pavement. Had them in sand at 15PSI and did amazing up the dunes. Haven't had a chance to see snow as I just got the jeep a few months ago but soon. Rain yes plenty (it rains here 8-10 months out of the year - I mean like daily) and no complaints. Here only good things. I have the BFG A-T 315x70x17 on my Dodge 2500 CTD and it is just too heavy for them and they wear way too quick so can't really say how they would be on a Jeep but I know some people swear by them.

|Renagade119||Well I guess that dream is crushed, lots of water/rain here in saskatchewan. How bout the Duratracs and the Wrangler Territory by Goodyear?|
|08-17-2012 04:27 PM|
|_3m||people either love em or hate em. if i recall correctly they dont do well in rain and people were complaining about hydroplaning|
|08-17-2012 03:57 PM|
|Renagade119||Anybody got any experience with Gt Grabber AT2's? Just found out my dad can get em for dirt cheap|

What is your lift size?

|Renagade119||Thanks for your input man! I think that just about sealed the deal.|

I have the Duratracs 33x12.50x15, they are designed for snow and are amazing in hard rain storms, great in sand and mud. they are lighter and quieter but still more aggressive than most A/T tires. and I think the larger tires come in a D range tire which I believe has the stiffer side wall. Personally I haven't noticed the weak side wall. I'm totally impressed with my Duratracs!

|Renagade119||Im glad someone brought that up cause I forgot! Its very important to me to have a tire that will do amazing in snow, cause after all I do live in canada!|

|Renagade119||Aighty thanks for the info man! I do like the FC-II and Ill take it into consideration, Im not sure which way I go... A long hard decision is in my near future|

|XJ Knight||all three will give you 45K plus in millage. none of the three are far and away better then the other in that department. In the end it's up to you. All three tires are fine tires.|
|08-04-2012 08:57 PM|
|Renagade119||Well now you got me worried! Saskatchewan is a farmers paradise so you never know where a ring of barbed wire is laying around 'n stuff like that. I had looked at both of those tires, and I do like the look of them but I had read an article in 4wheel drive magazine and the mentioned (and I quote) "Duratracs are great tires" The other concern I have is wear on both the Mickey thompson and the DIck Cepek|

315/70/17 Good Year Duratracs are listed at 34.4x12.7
|08-04-2012 08:04 PM|
|Renagade119||Hmmm thanks for the reply, I just googled them. I have no doubt that they would be kick as tires in a mudders paradise but I live in the middle of the praries so we dont have too much mud ('cept for when it rains, it can get pretty hairy) so I need something that'll deal with grass and dirt and water and looots of hills (like a butt-load, its unbelievable) but yet something thatll do amazing in city. to me the duratracs looked like they would fit the bill, aggressive yet not too aggressive, and to me the MT/R's are just a tad too knoby|
|08-04-2012 07:52 PM|
|CESwartz||Go with MT/Rs instead. Better all around tire, and I have duratracs|
|08-04-2012 07:45 PM|
|Renagade119||I would also be intrested in this! Ive been looking into the duratracs but I cant really find any reviews by off roaders|
|08-04-2012 04:07 PM|
Hey guys I was wondering if the guys with the 315 duratracs can post a few pictures and how close they are in size to a 35" tire. Thanks
