That is a great looking setup. I have been looking into those mopar wheels and they look way better mounted up and on a jeep than on the websites. Nice work.

Duratrac are great so far, no regrets at all. I am running them at 45psi, which seems to give the best on road handling for them. Gas mileage has dropped to 11-15MPG but I expected that, plus I added the roof rack and extra weight with the accessories. I would definitely recommend them.

The Rock Rails are Mopar, I would recommend them as well.

Thanks man, yeah you never know how they are going to turn out once they are mounted. I really like the way they came out.

I must say, I like your choice on the Duratracs! Ive got a set myself with a Rocky Road lift and I love them. Also, I have designed an external spare carrier and will post pics soon. Anyone else interested? I can build a quality carrier thay looks great and pivots out of the way of the tailgate with spring tension for about 250.00. Plus getting rid of the spare ads a lot of room in the back.

Your Jeep looks great! I got an external spare tire holder from tiregate.com, it cost $995 so if you can build it for $250, thats awesome. Here are some pics of it and a rack I got from Garvin.

I'm interested I love the look of rear spare carrier the only thing is that it makes your back up camera Obsolete. Post pics!

I had to turn off the sensors with mine but I can still use the back up camera when I donít have the gas cans mounted. The tire partially blocks the view, but it is still useable when parking, etc...

Awesome if it's partially useful then I'm down! Golden one show us what you did, is it in the middle or to the side like wahoos? Thanks!

Cool Tire Size

Hello everyone.

I have a Bright Silver 4x4 Laredo with ORC1, Security and Conv group, and the laredo e group (So no QL for me!)

. I have 17x8 wheels and really like the looks of the stock wheels. I was looking into going from the 245 75 16's which is 29.50 in to 265 75 on the same stock wheels. The tire i'm looking at is the Treadwright Guard Dogs which is 32.2 in tires. Does anyone know if these would rub? Or should I try and go to the 245 75 16's.

I don't really want to put spacers or a lift on at this point, just looking for a beefier tire that I can use with the stock 17x8 wheels.

I'm confused. You keep referencing tires that are for a 16 inch wheel but you say you have a 17 inch wheel.

I just put the 275/55/20 on my Laredo with the stock 20in wheels. I decided on the Pirelli Scorpion ATR with no rubbing issues and no change in power on my V6.

Was a typo. I meant 17 not 16's.

Actually. I did make a mistake for some reason I was looking at tires for a 16'' wheel. (I just traded up from an 06 trailblazer which had 16'' wheels). The tires i'm looking at are Treadwright Guard dog 265 70 17 load range E. They run $125 each before shipping and have a nice all terrain tread. The outer diameter according to their website is 32.25''. I have seen alot of really good reviews for these tires so the fact that they are retreads doesn't bother me.

Question 285/60/18 -- Cooper Zeon LTZ or Terra Grapplers?

Webspoke is running 285/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers with apparently no rubbing in the various QL settings..... Is anyone running 285/60/18 Cooper Zeon LTZ?

How can I choose a rim that in combination with the Zeon LTZ will fit the K2 without rubs?


Sr. Webspoke, Do you have any rubbing on the trail or at highway mode with your 285/65/18s?
