The "three things you wouldn't do to your Jeep if you did it again" thread is full of people that wish they'd just stepped up to XX tires the first time.

That's the exact philosophy I'm using to make the call to go from stockers to 315s on my Rubi LJ

4.5" backspacing. i have a 4 inch lift and the 33s never rub. but then again, i havent really flexed them yet

How are they wearing?

How are these tires wearing? I'm picking up a set from a buddy that are at 13/32 out of 18/32 after 14,000 miles. Anyone have more miles on their tires?

i have about 18k on mine, still looking good. I'm expecting 45 out of them. Why such a low number? they have a soft compound.

Here is a pic of my 03 Liberty with a Frankenlift on 245/75/16 Dura Tracs. I've only had them on for about 1200 miles, but so far I couldn't be happier!

06 LJ RUBI, with stuff, and more stuff planned :)

I have 32K miles on them so far and they still look / ride great. Aside from the nail in the front passenger side tire that needs to be removed, I haven't had any problems.

I have mine at 285/75R16 sitting in the garage waiting for me to install the lift! Been wanting to run these tires for some time now. As has been said before, they look so much gnarlier and meatier in person than in the pics. Hope the Load Range E doesn't ride tooooo rough. 28-30 psi should be ok I think?

Just got my 315/75s put on today. Did a 3" Black Diamond lift last week and I have a 1" Daystar body lift on the bench to go on before it gets wheeled. Clears fine on road other than slight rub on the control arm at full lock. Need a few turns out on the steering stops.
