JKULINY I'm running 305/65R17 Mickey Thompson ATZ Radials. I love the look but feel like they run a little rough on the hwy but then again my JKU is not a daily driver.

Jkfletch7 this is a size... in metric it is 315/65/r17 but since it calculates to almost exactly 33x12.5x17 they are listed as such

Beastmaster There is a tire size calculator I often refer to and 33x12.5x17 is not a size I can choose. Are you sure that tire size is made?

You are right though, Duratrac 285/70R17 tires are 32.7" in diameter and 11.22" wide and the next size up for the 17" tires are the 315/70R17 tires run 34.36" in diameter and 12.4" wide.

When I get new tires I plan on down sizing the wheels to 16" so I can have more choices. I currently run 305/65R17 ProComp Xtreme MT tires that run 32.61" in diameter and 12" wide. Is that more what you are looking for?

33 12.5 17 tire help

ok guys looking for some help on picking out a new set of tires. i have a set of 17x9 wheels with 4.5 backspacing and i have a set of used 50 dollar craigslist bought firestone destination at 285/65/17 tires. These tires were just a temporary fix so i could get my wheels on my rig. Winter is approaching and my search for new tires is harder than i thought. I want to go with a wider tire than the 285 and i think that a 33 12.5 17 tire is exactly what i want. problem is i cant find a tire i like.... my jeep is a dd and i want something that looks as aggresive as possible, is good on the highway, and will give me hopefully 40k or more miles, but i still want it to be able to perform well off road when i need it to. i love the duratracs but the stupid things dont come in the size i want so any thoughts on a tire in this size that would be comparable and similar. THANKS!
