I'd buy new rims with better backspacing to fit wider tires so you don't have any rubbing but that's just me. The steer stop tweak looks pretty simple and the washers work for many so that's probably the simplest route

J.B. If you are going with the 265/70/17 you should not have any rubbing issues. with 275 on up you you would.

Thanks for the pics ! Your jeep looks great ! But it seems like u got a lift therefore you are able to put the 285s i dont have a lift so i should probably get the 265 and put the 3/8 washers like boosta suggested

InfernoGirl Tires with lots of siping will help the most on ice. Of course, it's ice, and not intended to be driven on...... If you go to Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels they can give you a really good idea how much studs will cost.

I am in montreal Canada ! Worst place in america for snow and ice, we easily get 50 centimeters snow storms

it's more the ice I am concerned about, I'm looking into getting studs, but haven't decided which tires to get yet, I am also looking at the firestone destination MT

Firestone Destination M/T Mud Tire Reviews

they have the exact same size as my BF MT (rubicon stock) 255 75 17

It was my mistake ... the duratrac doesn't seem to come in a 265 75 17 it only comes in 265 70 17 ....

but now apparently i can put 285's but i wonder how good this is for winter...

so basically, the 265 duratracs will be 10 millimeters wider than my BF mud terrains but the same height right ?

do you have the same height ?

my current tires are the rubi ones 255 - 75 17

I can't seem to find that size for the duratracs

there is 245-75 17 and 265-75 17

Also do you know the cost of adding studs for ice ?

Thanks !

Boosta It doesnt rub at all once you put the washer on. It only rubbed at full turns. The link on fist picture has pics in it.
09-27-2010 03:37 PM
repoman100 and what would happen if I put the 245 ?
09-27-2010 03:35 PM
repoman100 looks great, looking forward to see the washer pics... does it rub alot ?

Boosta You can fit the 265/75/17. It may rub at full turns but if it does you can add 3/8 washers to the steering stops to eliminate. I just put on 275/65/18 Duratracs and had to do the washer trick. It took me 5 minutes. I will post link to site for steering info if you need it, then pics of my rig before and after.
