Wanted to get a look at some photos of 285/70R17 Duratracs mounted on JK's (2-door in particular). Also would like to see what these look like mounted with no lift if possible. Thanks (still putting my Christmas list together) :D :thumb:

It will cost you less to buy a set of 15" wheels and 33" duratracs for them than to just buy 33" duratracs for your stock 17" wheels. You'll also save mpg.

I actually just prefer the look of 17" wheels. I am planning on buying new 17" wheels, not planning on mounting these on the stock wheels

I had to downsize from factory 18" wheels to 17". Because the Blackrock wheels I purchased didn't come in 18". I went with 33" Duratrac's. They look awesome, all five. Painted white center cap lettering rescue green to match jeep. Love em.

I'm interested too.

I've been meaning to start a thread like this one. :thumb:
I just picked up an '07 JKU that was already lifted with 17" rims. It currently has 305/65R17s and when it comes time change them out I'm leaning toward the 285/70R17s also.:popcorn:

Do you have a pic? I was thinking of getting the Black Rock Vipers.

These are my 285/70/17 Bridgestones with a set of BlackRocks. Not exactly what you were asking for.. but it'll give you an idea.

You've already convinced me to get those wheels schlitz, now I'm just trying to decide on the tires. Those wheels look great on your rig, best I have come across yet. Since mine is black I really think they will work out perfectly :thumb:

Pics don't do it justice. Especially 3" Zone Offroad lift.

Just installed new 17's and 285/70/17 Duratracs to match on my LJ with a 2"coil/shock lift. Love it! Have a slight rubbing up front when wheel is cranked all the way to one side. Planning on a 1" spacer up front due to the 140lbs of bumper and winch out front.
