Just installed new wheels and tires!
 
Just got my 285/70/17 Duratracs and ProComp 7069 17x9 wheels installed today. The Jeep is currently at stock height.

Nice looking 2010 you got there!
It's fun having a vehicle you can do so much with isn't it?
I've had mine 3 weeks now and enjoy it so much!

Looks Great ! I want those tires to. Are you going to lift it ?

Great choice on the rims with all the black trim! I think the grille really ties everything together.

I have my lift sitting in my room. I just need time to get it installed.

Got me the same Mountain, albeit in a 4 door. ;)

Looks great with those Duratracs. I'm looking at those very tires as a potential next set . . . How do they ride compared to the BFGs you took off? Acceleration? Mpgs?

What type of lift are you planning, btw?

The first thing I noticed during my drive after having them installed was that the Jeep "felt" heavier. I know the wider tires added more rolling resistance due to the wider foot print, but the Jeep just felt heavier. It take a couple more rpm's to get up to speed and up a hill then with the stock mud tires. Can't comment on the mpg yet.

But it looks a thousand times better then stock with the tires poking out past the fenders.
