|zachhll||i wana start by saying this is not my jeep this is salty1's jeep it is my inspiration. I want mine to look like it but with 315 duratracs. He has a 2.5 in aev lift and 35"s on factory wheels with 1.5" spacers.|

Are you running spacers?

I went with a 3.5" RK lift, and the 315/75R/16 Duratracs. They measure out to 34.5" at 33PSI.. Love the look and the ride. They do rub a bit when I have them WAY aired down. Like 8PSI but other than that they are great. I get about the same millage I was getting which is crappy, but hey it's a jeep and it's a 3.8L at that.. The Tires, wheels and weights come in right at 90.5lbs a tire. I went with the 16" wheels to get a little more sidewall for airing down..

|Damooch||I have 315/70/17 on pintlers with a 2.5 RK lift. It has duratracs on it. Rides great. Did have to go with 1.5 inch synergy wheel spacers. Because of the backspacing I went with spacers. The rim came too close to the rear suspension for my liking. It does ride great. It has 3.21 gears so it will b reheated soon. It is a dog with those gears but there only so much money in the wife's wallet. Lol. Hope that helps|

|foxyjeeper||Just ordered 17" Pintlers for my 2013 JKU which has a 2" Mopar lift. Am agonizing about the tire choice -- 285/70 or 315/70 Duratracs. Any updates for from your previous posts or new suggestions? This is my daily driver, mostly on road, and I have little children, who already have to work to get in my Jeep. Most concerned about spare tire carrier and then rubbing. Also moderately concerned about gearing with 3.73 and an automatic. All opinions, suggestions and shared experiences welcome.|

|Damooch||Mine stuck out about an inch. But they rubbed so added wheel spacers. Now they stick out more but don't rub. This was with a 2.5 inch RK lift.|

|BigDeaner||For those with the pintlers and the 315s, how much tire sticks outside of the flare and any rub issues?|

The overall diameter difference between a 285/70 and 285/75 is .9"
A 285/75 17 would be a 34" tire, Toyo Open Country A/T II is available unsure of the winter performance...

I have a JK with 2" Mopar lift and was thinking of getting the BF Goodrich A/T 285/70/R17. I go to the desert like once or twice a month, other than that I use my JK on road 90% of the time. Do you guys think its good, or shall I go for something else. And is there any difference between 16 and 17 wheels other than size?

|Hail Caesar||Can you put the 315's on a 8 inch wide rim??|
|08-03-2013 10:15 AM|
Just need to decide if I go with the Duratracs or the Nitto Dune Grapplers in the 315 size.
|08-03-2013 10:04 AM|
Any other 34/35's that are maybe 10-11 inches wide at the tread and not quite as wide as the 315 duratracs. I need a tire that is just as capable in the cold, icy, slushy winter as the summer and still have decent off road performance. Why I fell on the Duratracs but I just wish there was a 34" tire that was as wide as the 285's... in a 17" to fit the stock rims.

Good thread and lots of info!
I've been looking at tires that will SAFELY fit a 7.5" stock Rubi rim and have been so confused on the entire situation.
I have a 2 door 2013 Rubicon [4.10's and auto trans] and (being installed Monday) a 2.5" TF spring lift, AEV geometry correction brackets and Metalcloak adjustable front track bar. I am already (in prep for the lift) running 1.5" Spidertrax wheel spacers. I've been trying to narrow down a tire for a couple weeks keeping my budget in mind. I can't afford to get a tire carrier/bumper at this time so it seems to me that a 285/70/17 is going to be the way to go for me.
Thanks to all who have posted!

|JKUTBFE13||Here are my 285/70 R17 MT/R Kevlars on stock rims with 1.5 Spidertrax spacers. Minimal extension beyond stock flares.|

|Doctorsti||Anyone know how far the 315/70 duratracs stick out from the edge of the fender with stock rubicon wheels and spidertrax 1.5" spacers? Do the 285's stick out in the same config of stock wheels and spidertrax?|
|07-28-2013 11:58 PM|
Doc - good points. My 285's were able to sit on the stock carrier, but with the increased weight I knew I was getting a bumper with a tire carrier as part of the build. My driving is 54 miles each way daily and 50 of that is all highway at 75.
It articulates extremely well and I have no rubbing even at full stuff.
