Here are some 285/70/R17. With Mamba M1 rims. 2.5 In Teraflex BB lift.
11.5in wide 32.8 dia. They are friken awesome. Start to vibrate a bit at 70mph plus but expected at that speed.
Those do look good. I plan on going with the size wheel/tire when I wear out my MT/Rs. Can you tell me what the ride quality is like? Are they as good as BFGs? Better than the GY GSAs? etc.
They look really good, but I wonder how they compare to other GY tires. I used to have the stock GY GSAs on mine and to be honest I think my MT/Rs are actually a much better tire on road than the "Get Stuck Anywheres".

These are the first "on/off/off Road Tires I've ever owned - newby. So I'll share my research why I chose these, and how they ride. my requirements are 95% street, 5% offroad - dirt trails mostly. Midwest so I need excellent rain sleet and snow tires - but wanted a very aggressive look but didn't want them to sing too much on the road noise. Next I wanted a solid ride, no wandering or tracking issues cause my kids drive it also. The duratrac met these requirements on "paper" so I took a chance. So far - 100miles on them I'm completely satisfied, although I haven't driven them in snow or rain yet - but I suspect excellent results. I went with 285/70 so a balance of sidewall rubber and rim - not too much rubber. The sidewalls are very stiff so the ride is firm. No wandering and they track fantastic - very solid and confident. Only thing is at 70mph and higher the jeep begins to vibrate but I expected that with the size weight and tread. I hope this helps... good luck.

I would go back to the tire place to get that balance issue checked out. I really don't think an all terrain tire should vibrate at 70mph. They should be able to balance the tire better than that. Your not that much bigger than the BFG Mud Terrains that came stock on the JK Rubicons. My friend has one with badly cupped tires and he has no balancing issues. I can see where a mud terrain that size could have issues. But you should be ok with those tires. I'd at least have them look at them again. There are a lot of people on here running bigger and more aggressive tire than that without balancing issues.
Let us know what you find out. These tires are also on my short list of tires. I want the same qualities that you listed earlier.
I stopped by America's tire tonight to have the tires rotated on my cummins and asked how much for 285/75/16's duratracs. I was quoted $189 ea. They are $182 on-line at tirerack.com so it seems to be a good price. Likely my next tire.
Yeah for your size that is a good price. Most places will price match Tirerack. I happened to be only about 55 miles from Tireracks headquarters and one of there largest distro centers. If you are close its worth a trip to one of there centers. Not sure about the rest but South Bend IN is like 1 million tires about the size of 1.5 large Ikea stores....
Go me...I Just got the new dura trac's...The size I got is 33/12.5/15...They ride very well for the type of tire it is...They are a soft tire...The reason I went with them is for the snow rating...We drive in the mountins and on fire trails...So for the ride home...I realy like them and can't wait to see How many miles I will get out of them...I don't know how to post pics on here...
So if you want to look I have them on photobucket...user name all3orus
