Yeah - my sliders took a real beating on that trail.

Sounds like you have a keeper..

You stepping up the 35's? I can't wait to get rid of my 33's...they're just a little bit too small on LJ's. They look perfect in the 35-37 range

I'm thinking 2.5" OME with 33x10.50 BFG All-Terrains.



Your better off with the Duratracs instead of the BFG A/T especially in Maine. Duratracs have more sippys oppose to the Mall Terrains. Just my 2 cents.

Goodyear does not make a 33x10.5 duratrac. But they do make a 285/75r16 which is a really nice size. That's what I run.

As much sense as the metric system makes, I can't fathom why they size tires how they do. 33x10.5 makes sense, but the whole width/percentage of width to sidewall/then inches is just... really? Come on...

I never make the same mistake twice - it's more like three or four times.

They don't make 33x10.5 because they look ridiculous! Haha ...then again, I'm a 33x12.5 guy and wouldn't change a thing. ...unless it's bigger, of course.
...ok so if your running in a lot of snow up in Main, I can understand a narrower tire, but with 33s I wouldn't go narrower than 11.5 and that would probably be the best in snow also.

I don't overly get the metric tire sizes myself. I cook for a living and use the metric system for baking, but only because it's much more accurate when scaling.
Anyway. The 285/75r16 measures out to like 32.8" x 11.6" or something like that. I do know that there are a lot more metric sizes available than the 33x10.5.

Hey, in the Video i've seen that you ride Bilstein 5100 with the long arm suspension. Are these the special LA shocks?? How do You like them? What about the weight of your back with the tire carrier and the cans? Are the shocks stiff enough for the combination of the LA with the weight of the back?

Thanks!!

I'm a big fan of Duratracs, I have them on my work truck (GMC 2500). They're great in the snow, and I've run them over terrain where I was very surprised not to have a blowout. Crushed shale, for example.

However, I'm a huge fan of 33x10.5" tires. I had a narrow-track CJ-5 and love the narrow stance look. I had 32x11.5's on my TJ, and hated how wide they were. If they made Duratracs in that size (non-metric), I wouldn't hesitate to buy them. Unfortunately, I'm pretty much limited to the choice of BFG T/A's or KM2's.
