I have been running them for 5000 miles now at 32 and they have worn perfectly and been great at that pressure.

What is everyone else running them at?

I've always run every set of tires I've owned at 32 psi. Never had a wear issue. I run my Duratracs at 32 as well. Anyone want to pipe in hear on proper tire pressure for a jeep? Or are we on the money? Very nice Cherokee buy the way.

Proper pressure depends on the tire and the size. There is no standard psi for Jeeps. Max psi for my 33x12's is 35, tire store filled them to 31, they are running a bit too high if you ask me. The contact patch isn't as good as I'd like and will air them down after I get my lift installed. Chalk test is a good way to determine if you are making the most of your contact patch. More air will yield one or two more mpgs, but wears out the center of your tires faster, and will ride firmer.

After running mine at 35psi vs 32psi for a week, I have noticed my steering feels tighter and it handles better. I thought for awhile my steering box needed tightening but I now think it was the tire pressure was too low for these tires.

Oh, got some new pics of the heep with the duras. Harder to see the tread though because of the lighting. Everyone loves pics.








Does anybody else LOVE the footprint these leave in the snow?

My micrometer was to thick to get an accurate depth on them.

I will tell you though, these things are amazing on snowy roads... its literally UNBELIEVABLE! I still can not believe how much grip you get with these on snow covered roads.

^^ Sorry you couldn't measure them. Reason I ask is because some tires are made with kerfs only like 4 or 5/32nds deep! Glad to hear they are good in the snow ...

Or maybe just stick a thin sliver of metal in, and then hold the depth with fingers, and then measure the depth that the metal was inserted in ... because I believe most calipers/micrometers are going to be too 'thick'?

Initial impressions:

Obviously rides a little higher then stock. I have no rubbing whatsoever and they are quiet. Not noticeably stiffer then the stock tires. I don't notice anymore road noise then stock. Haven't had any snow or rain since I got them on, but snow is in the forecast this week so I'll update when it does. Gas has pretty much been right around the same give or take. I just filled my tank and it seems to be using fuel at the same rate although I won't know for sure til I run a couple tanks through it and get an average.
