Are you guys who are swapping to larger sized tires sticking with nitrogen fill? I assume it is more consistent for pressures when it comes to the tpms system .

Thanks

Haven't used it after I bought a new vehicle before this one and the nitrogen didn't do anything noticeable for tire pressure. Snake oil, IMO.

Nitrogen fill seems to have lost its popularity, don't know many that still use it on the street. When I had nitrogen (my local tire filled for fee if you bought tires there) I noticed much less pressure changes with temperature changes, i.e I never had to add air in the winter.

^^^ What they said.

Nitrogen has its uses. We use it in our aircraft tires, but that's only because they are subject to extreme temperature changes and the nitrogen is void of any moisture. As you already know, nitrogen does not expand and contract the same way that oxygen does to temperature changes. The thing to keep in mind is that our atmosphere is made up of 78% nitrogen, so your tires already have 78% nitrogen in them.

I'd take a nitrogen fill if it was free, but I wouldn't pay extra for it. The benefits definitely do not out weigh the costs.

Just an FYI. The 275/65r18 Duratracs are a VERY tight fit on my 2014, but do NOT rub. They are such a tight fit that the tire guy called me out in the shop and said 'i think they will rub'. He was more concerned with the passenger rear tire which was very close to the fender liner on the inside toward the front. We got under the jeep and could see a small gap everywhere so we kept going. No rub at all, but it was such a tight fit that it fooled the tire guy for a minute.

Have you tried full turns, going over bumps, etc to check for rubbing?

How come so many are going for the 275/65/18 as opposed to a 265/65/18. Wouldn't the 265 give you a little be more piece of mind.

Yup. No rubs at all. Speedbumps, full lock turns, all QL heights. if there are no rubs there are no rubs, trying them in the real world on my vehicle gives the best kind of peace of mind instead of wondering if I paid a lot for bigger all-terrains without getting all I could because I needed an uneccessary margin of error that kept me from getting the biggest contact patch I could for mountain weather and terrain.

Seatbelts on toilets might give people peace of mind too, others don't need them.

Awesome. So that size works without any issues.

Correct, on my 2014 diesel. The closest tire to fender liner proximity I can find is on the inside front of the right rear tire, but still no rub, I can squeeze a finger into the tightest spot.

Well that's good to hear that there are no rubs, since I'd rather go with the 275 size as well. I just want to see more off road real-world experience with this size.

Well if you have quadralift it is highly unlikely that any off road situation you can theorize about will bounce or bury the tire further into the fender well than entry/ exit mode does.
