Finally went with the 35x11.5/18's. toyo extreme at2's. quiet as all hell. I only hear them around 75+mph when driving near a jersey barrier. Minimal noise when the doors are off. 50k warranty. How can you beat that ?!?

DIY07 I got Cooper Discover ATP from Discount Tire on my Dakota this year I think it is a good looking tire and if you have radio on or window down you will never hear it. They are smaller and don't know if size diff will equal noise diff. Have not looked at wht sizes they are available in though.

Ex Umbris Currus I run 315/75R16 Duratracs on MB TKOs. It's basically a 35x12.5 tire on a 8.5" wheel. Ordered them from DT vendor here. I have them set at 28 psi for road and drop them to around 18 offroad. This is on a RK 2.5" X-Factor lift. Oh, I did add ACE C-Gussets, cheap insurance IMO.

I haven't seen any in the road that I know of. That's just over 10inches wide I believe. If you going to stick with the stock rims I believe you can go as far as 11.5 without changing the psi on the tires.. Anything wider you would run into tread wear problems/rubbing/voided tire warranty. I've heard from tire places that you can, and others that you can't do it run wider than listed. Also if you have a warranty on the jeep itself double check with that because you could void it, if you were to use bigger tires than suggested

Thanks!!!
Tou can keep the stock 16's but you'll run into a few problems. If you want a wider tire they will balloon on you and you'll have uneven wear. You can always do a chalk test and ride them on a different psi, but it will ride different and void any warranty with the tire You could just just spidertrax spacers and a meaty tire in the same size. Or you could jump up to a 33 inch tire. There are tons of forums about what sizes you can go with. Do some more research and see what fits best for your wallet , especially if your gonna spend a lot of $. Do it right the first time.

i know they're not 33s but i just upgraded to General Grabber AT2s 275/65-18 they are exactly the same diameter (32.1) as stock but about an inch wider with a much more AT looking tread...they arent loud at all for an AT and they have pretyy good ratings (look it up) they are only 2# heavier then stock and they have a very similar service rating (a much higher service rating means stiffer harder tires) i think they totally changed the look of my Jeep... I am actually looking at going with 1.25" spacer to push the tires out a bit more to get that WIDE look.

Homey's about to tip over, IMO.

michiganadam I have duratracs in 33x12.5-15 and i like them alot. Had them up to 80mph they do hum but not a whole lot. Work great in sand at 12 psi. Love the look.

I have 3.73 on an 08 and i feel very undergeared on hills at highway speed.

I would look at setting you up with the Falken Wild Peaks. They are a great tire for on and offroad! Plus, they have a more aggressive look to them compaird to the stock tires.

The really nice thing about them is they have a 50K tread life warranty on them! Something you wont find on most offroad tires.

And Crushers, with the tiny skulls, though nobody would notice them unless your Jeep was parked.

But I hear you.

As for you...35k a year? Damn.

I can tell you, firsthand, that GoodYear DuraTracs are about as quiet as they get. Yeah, there are peeps reading this right now, gagging at the mention of DTs, but hey...

We have ran 1250's on the stock wheels. It seems to hold the bead rather well. It is not bad at all. It does however bow out the sides a bit. Yes you will need to run spacers though...

Spacera are good idea to make sure you have the room. What size are you going with?

Here is a link to the spacers on our site. These are per pair and you would need two of them:

Spidertrax Jeep 1.5" 5x5 Wheel Spacers

If there is anything else we can do, please let us know.

I debated between keeping it cheap and going small but why go through all the head ache to get new tires if you can just add a little more $$ and get a whole nother beast. Even if its a DD, like mine, it won't make it horrible.
