I haven't been there yet. I was just going about 20 minutes from home. I hope to get there once I get some more lift and 33s though.

Has anybody had any experience with a load range D? It's pretty much the only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on a set of these.

My only experience with a load range D is from my buddies JK Rubicon Unlimited. He went from a 2"BB on stock BFG Muds to a 35" Cooper STT (on same BB). It was definetly a stiffer ride and the small bumps are a little harsher than the load range C BFGs. But its not as harsh as my load range E MTRs. But then again his 35s have another couple inches of sidewall to absorb the shock. So on the same stock size tire, a load range D could be significantly rougher than a C, I really don't know.

Thanks for the input man. I kind of figured as much. I'm looking to replace the stockies on my 2-door with some 33s" and was hoping to catch anyone with realtime experience on the duras.

Just ordered some Duratracs yesterday. Unfortunately, I have another 3 freakin weeks to wait on my wheels to get here.

There ought to be a law against advertising a product and then telling someone a week later that the product is on backorder! Thanks for nothing, 4wheelonline.com. I think your customer service sucks. If a product is on backorder for 4-6 weeks, you should exchange with similar or refund money, not charge a 20% cancellation fee.

As for the Duratracs, I have read more reviews than I can count, was leaning towards the Firestone Destination AT's, but saw I could get the Duratrac's for like 8 bucks more apiece. Went with the Goodyears.

Got mine (LT265 75r16 C rated for 07 X with no lift) at tiremonkey.com (discount code monkey3). Shipping to an installer half a mile from the house, and mounted, balanced, put on Jeep for $20 per tire. With that and joining TreadLightly for $25 ($100 rebate on set of 4 tires), I'll have about $720 into the tires I really wanted to get anyway. I was being quoted similar prices for p-rated Dunlop's, Firestones, and Mastercrafts.

I trust Goodyear tires. I truly believe their construction saved both my and my wife's lives a few years back when I caught a piece of metal in the road and a tire blew doing 85 on I-75 in Florida. Tire was completely shredded but still intact all the way arounnd by the time I got stopped. Didn't even damage the rim. How much is your piece of mind worth, and top it off with tires made in the USA.

What psi does everyone run their duratrac's at? I just got my 33's on and the tire place put them at 35psi and wouldnt put any less in cause thats what their policy was.

I like my tires to run with flat/even tire wear......on the liberty with 31's I run them at 30psi. A TJ on 33's doesn't need over 25-30 either. It's what I run on my lj with 33" bfg at's

I run mine at 32-34psi for street and highway driving. Haven't gotten a chance to air down for off-road yet but have heard people going down to 15psi

I put a set on a customers Grand Cherokee last fall and he loves them. He said they worked well in the snow but he always drove with all seasons.

WOW!!! pretty sure the stock 30x9.50's are only recommended to be run at 30 psi and your goin over and above that with bigger tires.
on my 33's (not duratrac's) I run around 25 MAX!!! and on my gf's stock TJ I run around 30 most of the time. if I am hauling the camper I will bump them up a bit.
