Those tires do not perform like a MT. They are a street tire designed for light/ moderate offroading.

Where'd you get 5 for 900?

Hey I live 30 minutes south of Champaign! Might have to make the trip up because the TJ I'm looking at buying this Friday is in some need for a few new tires.

I disagree. I've used full on MTs and Duratracs and the Duras were just as good in the mud. There is nothing street about them. They have sidewall tread, large open outer lugs that get noisy after the first rotation, and tons of siping for snow and ice.

What width did you get on these? 12.5"? Also, what width wheel did you go with?

I'm wanting 33" Duratracs as well but am trying to decide what wheel width to go with (I'm thinking 8" or 10") and I don't know what backspacing to get on the wheels to fit correctly with a 2" suspension lift and 1" body lift.

Any help? Thanks! :smiley:

That is an incredible price. Was that the installed out the door price? I wish Fairbury, IL was a little closer to NC.

Do you know if they finance or do you have to pay in full for them?

Do you think these would rub a lot without a lift??

On the road, definitely not, off road, probably. But nothing serous.

I'm sure they work as good as MTs for the light offroading you do. I spent last weekend watching rigs with these tires fail at obstacles where equally equipped rigs with swampers, bighorns, and BFG MTs were successful.

But swamped are 1500+ :)

Can you clarify the size on these? There are a few 3el options in DTs.

Thanks! And sorry form the typo, I was on my phone earlier. On a tablet now, who knows which will turn out more readable :-)

Soon to be first time Jeeper. Ordered a 2014 Unlimited 2 weeks back. Now, I'm on the hunt for tires and wheels.

My dilemma is that I had always planned on DT 33x12.5x15, but I recently decided that I think I like AEV Pintlers the most for wheels. This means a different 33 for the DT (has to fit 17" wheels :-( )

Totally undecided now...

You can still get Duratracs in the metric equivalent of 33s that fit 17s to the best of my knowledge. Not exactly sure what size it would be off the top of my head though.

Thanks!


I just created a new thread for my question :-) I do know I can still get 33s in metrics vs standards, but there are some things I'm not as excited about.

Sorry for the thread jack! I've created my own to try to avoid taking this over.
