Matador Another vote for the Good Year DT. Great overall tire.

WininUtah I run Hankooks on all my vehicles, I have the Dynapro ATs on my Pilot and they're very good. A friend runs them on his Grand Cherokee and they can handle snow and off road pretty well.

2resa Just a side note, but rugged ridge also makes rim protectors for those wheels. Look good and will also help protect the wheel from rock rash.

18usc371 I unscrewed each rim hex bolt and stuck them through cardboard to mask the threads and only expose the heads. Then I applied a couple of light coats of plain Rustoleum Satin spray over the bolts and plastic center caps. No peeling over two years/winters:



Here's some crappy pics - 315 Duratracs - 2.5 AEV lift. As soon as I got 33s, I regretted it - but love DTs. Note my 315 DT measure 33.7 actual on this rig at 28psi. I run AEV wheels now. I had no issues with the RR and 285s. But the 315s stuck out too much and threw a lot of road crap all the time. With the AEV wheels tuck more in and I get about 1/10 of the the crap sprayed up in the winter slop - which is toxic:

Here's the combo with Teraflex leveling. (I run 315 DTs now on a newer Jeep) I love Duratracs

how did you black out all the silver components on the wheels? that's exactly what I'd like to achieve when I order mine (sames wheels and tires but in 35's)

BB1857 I have the Fierce Attitude MT's in that size and love them. Real aggressive looking but not noisy at all which I was shocked by. Price is awesome from DTD too so you have more money for other mods!
