I was wondering if anyone could give me a very decent guess of what kind of tires and wheels this KK has on it. I'm not to knowledgable to figure out this myself, and could you link me to the tires and wheels?

And I was also wondering are the tires 31's?

They look like Good Year Wrangler MTR's. Not sure about the size or what type of wheel. I do like the way it looks.

It's hard to tell on that pic. Maybe if we had a bigger/clear pic it would be easier to say. But they DO say Goodyear Wrangler. They might be MTRs though. Some of the more experienced might be able to tell from that picture, not sure.

Rims might be Cragars, or some other brand that has a similar rim. Again, not really sure on those either.

I'm honestly stumbled. I know it's an older picture and the Jeep has a Rock Krawler 3.5" lift kit. But I don't know the older tires too well so I don't know if it's and older gen of current tires. I'm pretty sure they aren't MTRs. Maybe Duratracs. They look similar to the new ones, but I don't know if there were older versions of the Duratrac.

Still don't know about the rims though.

Maybe someone with more experience can step in and give a definite answer.

I think it's the mtr's I wish I knew what size they were. I'm thinking about getting these wheels (http://www.quadratec.com/products/92605_7XX_C_PG.htm) and want my tires to be a little wider for the trails we have here, I'm going to get 1.5 spacers would these be wider than my stock ones? I have the 2012 limited with I think the 18 inch chrome wheels they have a 18 after the number on the tires.

If I was to get those wheels in 16x9 (I'm not sure what size to get if I'm wrong please tell me a better size) and want the mtr could you tell me what tire size to get with these size wheels (16x9) ? Hopefully the 16x9 will be the same size wheel as pictured

**** forgot to add I will have the rock krawler 3.5" lift added on my jeep before I instal these, and later on have old emu shocks and springs added****

Sorry all new to wheels and tires I have ran stock on all my other vehicles

Or can someone just recommend a wheel that looks like that to fit with the mtr's and give a good size to get on both ?

See I'm used to seeing MTRs look more like this:


Anyways, tire size works like this. I'll use my stock tires for an example. 225/75 16. 225 is the width in mm, 75 is the sidewall. It's a percent of the width. So in my case, my sidewall is 75% the size of 225. And 16 is the rim size. If you said the last number was 18, then you have an 18 inch rim.

Most people go with 245/75 16 for tires, not too sure about exact rim sizes besides staying with the 16inch. Pretty sure our bolt pattern is 5x4.5 as well.

man some of the answers are all over the place

*First the tires are the original MTR tread pattern,
*there never was any other Duratrac tread design
*9 inch wheels are WAY too wide unless you only want to go straight
*for wheels stay with a 16 X7 inch wide with 4 inches of backspacing, this will sit the tire/wheel out a little over an inch from stock .
*Lift, why throw on a cheap junk lift when you want to do it right later on? Why waste the money?
*Tires stay with a 245-75-16 size, will fit good on the above wheels, no need to regear, no rubbing

Hey, atleast I never pointed the guy in the wrong direction. I admitted that I didn't know if there was ever older duratracs. I knew there were older MTRs, but I wasn't familiar with how they looked and I admitted that.

I'd say the tire question has been answered. Rims? - the center caps aren't round; they have concaves to access the lugs so not sure they would be Cragars. My first guess was either Cragar or Unique - definately a "streetlock"/fake beadlock.

Regardless - it's a sweet looking KK!
