Tire... Confusion

I've been thinking about replacing the stock SRA's on my JK.

Currently my Jeep is a daily driver, and runs light trails once in a while to haul gear. If it gets a bit muddy, the SRAs are not a fan. They are _not_ instilling a lot of confidence for snow... So driving these trails when the snow sets in, with the SRAs might not be a good idea.

I'd rather just get a single set, rather than two if I can manage... Anyone had much experience with the Duratracs... and snow? They do have the mount/snowflake bit... so meet some criteria for winter driving, but as someone mentioned in another thread they are not a dedicated winter tire. Just curious how they manage.

Now, assuming I picked up a set... I am sitting at 32" and would rather avoid a lift. Anyone tried a set of 285/70/R17 which is listed as a 32.8", or will it rub on turns? So is 265/70/R17 (31.7") the way to go without a lift?

There are several threads about the Duratracs here. We all love them, afaik... They handled snow just fine last winter.... They are mud+snow rated, but not a soft compound snow only tire.

Pretty sure 285's will rub on stock wheels, but not positive about that...
