How are you liking the 285's? I am really leaning towards them but the E rating is pushing me away. Let me know what you think, thanks alot!

I've only had them about a month, but they're doing me just fine. Pretty quiet too. Haven't tried them offroad yet. Honestly I didn't pay any attention to the load range, I just needed some tires bad!

I have a 2004 rubicon same color and i was wanted to run 285 75 16 and was wondering what lift you were running and if you were happy and any rubbing? Also do you think a different fender would work better?
Thanks

I know it's probably not necessarily what you want but here is mine:



I love the tires - 245/75R16 in a C.

Anyone have 35" duratracs? I'm really liking the look of these tires. And FourWheeler magazine rated them well.

when I bought the Jeep back in September, it had a 2 inch BB and worn out 285 tires that would rub just a tiny bit on occasion. When I got the new Duratracs they rubbed a little more at full turn, but only in reverse (yeah figure that one out). They drove just fine but at flex would get into the fenders. That is the setup in the pic I posted. Since then I removed the Bushwhackers and found that the tires were getting into the metal edge of the stock fender at flex. I installed a Rough Country body lift last weekend (I think it's 1.25 inch), but haven't flexed it out to see if they still rub.

So all in all right now I have the 2 inch BB and a 1.25 inch BL. Since the tires appear to only be getting into the lip on the stock fender I think everything will be OK now, but if you have tube fenders I think there wouldn't be an issue anyway. I'm just cheap and this isn't my primary offroad rig, so I'm just changing simple things here and there trying to avoid a full-on lift kit install.
