jonzer said his 31s measured at 30. Thats what I thought was bad. If others are measuring at 30.5 thats about what I would expect.

I'm looking at a 265/75/16 and the specs that I have seen on that size says they measure 31.7. So I'm hoping that it is close to that.

Yeah the 30.5 measurement was taken off of tirerack and Goodyears site. If they only measure to 30 somethings up. I wish they made a 32 inch size for a 15 inch rim

Aren't 265/75 closer to 31x10.5?

Nope. A 265/75/16 is a 32 x 10.5. The metric tires run about an inch taller for the same width of tire. Or to look at it another way they run an inch narrower for the same height of tire.


Here is a handy calculator:

I calculated 31/10.5/15 and got 267/76/15. wouldn't that mean it would be a 31, not a 32? or is the rim size difference my cause.

Its the rim size difference.

The metric tires fit a 16" rim.

Thats something you will have to ask in the XJ section of the forum. You might find something in the stickies section too. Try this link:

Put some serious trail time on the duratracs today. I put a couple quick pics in the xj wheel pic thread.
These tires have impressed me alot. They are way better in mud than I thought they would be.
I ran at 20 psi and ran over all kinds of stuff with no issue. They clean out good enough.
To think I wanted general grabber AT2s. They don't hold a candle to these.

Can you give a link to the pictures thread? I couldn't find what you were referring to.

That's why Duratracs are awesome on all terrains, including packed snow and ice; unlike mud tires which aren't very good on packed snow nor ice, unless you sipe the center treads a lot.

If you sipe the center treads of an MT a lot, you've then made the center treads more AT like.

You're complaint about the Duratracs is the feature that makes them great.
