Thanks man. I don't mind at all! I'm not intirely happy with the Tiregate spare tire mount. I'm going to the guys at Garvin Wilderness racks this week to see if they are interested in building a better one. They are the ones who built the safari rack system for me. The Tiregate does the job, but I think the tire and gas can placement could be better. I'll let you know if they decide to R&D one.

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

Let us know what they say. I have alsways liked Wilderness Racks! Couple questions for ya: Do you think your 275/65/18 would fit in the spare hatch deflated? Also, I don't have QL and am going with the Rocky Road Outfittters 2.5" lift. Based on yours set in OR2, do you think 275/70/18s (33.2x11.0x8.7") would fit with no rubbing issues at flex and full turn with the Mopar Offroad Wheels?

They decided not to make the spare tire mount. Tiregate has a pat. pending and they dont want to step on any toes. The spare might fit completely deflated, it would be close. I think you would get a little rubbing even with the 2.5 lift, but nothing a little trimming wouldn't fix.

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

Thanks Wahoo... I appreciate the input! If they fit, I am thinking of going with Duratracs at 275/70/18 for Daily Driving three season's and offroad use; and am considering running Blizzak DM-V1's at 265/70/18 (equiv to 32.6x10.7x8.3) on the spare steelie's in the Winter snow months. Obviously with this setup, I would also need the Tiregate spare mount.

Sounds like a sweet set up! Post some pics once you get it all together!

Just to clarify those tires on 18's with QL have not had any rubbing issues in any setting?

Correct. I haven't tried every angle on every setting, but so far no rubbing in Park mode driving in a parking garage, no rubbing normal driving, and no rubbing offroading in OR1 or OR2.
