Yes, you want a 15x8 unless you want your tires coming off the bead constantly

I'm one to take full advantage of low air in tires got a little on board compressor I can use when I'm back on the road. So 15x8 it is. Why don't more companies make a road legal beadlock?

Road legal is a grey area. There is nothing explicitly illegal about the ring style beadlock, they are just not a great idea from a physics point of view. I ran Humvee beadlocks on my previous jeep and that style is safe, works well but weighs a ton.

33x12.5x15 "C" rated Duratrac's here. I know you want something that looks meatier but I would be hard pressed to get anything else for a DD and now-and-then wheeling. I will, however, have a set of MT/R's when I go to 35's, but will always keep the set of Duratrac 33's around to swap for DD and emissions testing.

Good luck with your choice!!

I have the 315/75/16 Duratracs because I really like the reviews they get for wet conditions and snow. I have one complaint that might interest you, I think that is the size you are looking at. Near as I can tell the 315 size is only available in Load Range E. I have my tires at 18-20 psi and the outer lugs still don't touch pavement much. I was running them at 28 and noticed on a rainy day they didn't leave any wet tread pattern from the outer lugs when I pulled into my garage. I tried 25, 22 and now at the psi I'm at now they still don't touch as much as I'd like. Just something to consider. It does make the ride a little spungy riding around at that psi, but I'm used to it. So far I'm happy with the grip they give, even though haven't really got to go play in the snow much with them. Sure do wish they had the 315s in D range.

After looking at so many tires until 2 am last night I realized they are pro comps and here's a link they don't look bad for the price

In general ProComps suck. No sidewall strength at all

For daily driver/weekend wheeler I would highly suggest BF Goodrich KM2's, they work well on the road and there lighter then most mud tires.

Super Swamper Boggers are amazing in mud, but horrible on the road.

Pitbull rockers are a happy medium between the 2. They have good road manners and do great off road, they are heavy but there good tires.

A lot of people can only have 1 set of tires, if you drive a lot I would go KM2, if your only driving 10 miles a day and you want something more aggressive then rockers would work great, rockers are quite a bit more expensive then KM2's.

SS Boggers are terrible for road. But SSR's are actually quite good. Especially if you go with a 10.5" wide version.

I had 32x11.5x17 SSR's on a 97 F150 and they road fine down the road, they were loud but I like that, they wore pretty fast and they slide around corners a little to easy when it was wet.

If they were slipping easy its because the PSI was too high. Its well known that optimal PSI setting for those tires is actually to be set cold 5 psi below whats recommended on your vehicles door pillar. A few psi makes a significant difference on those tires too when it comes to wet/snow traction. When set up properly the SSRs are fantastic tires for wet/snowy road conditions.

Well I sure wouldn't set PSI by the door sticker when I'm running larger tires. Chalk works for me.

Either way, I still haven't found a better mud tire for the street then the KM2, they don't let go around corners, they really dig in under hard breaking, they last forever. There not the best tire for the road, there just the best mud tire for the road. Good prices, light, long lasting, works great for light wheeling, they hold a bead like a champ.

But, there's much better tires off road, Pitbull Rockers, Boggers, all the stickies in the rocks.

The KM2 is just something that can do both well, for a good price, and for a long time.
