Re: DuraTrac or AT T/A KO2

We installed 265/75-18 Duratracs on our 2015 Overland.
The local tire shop talked me out of the 275 size which was OK as they look great.
36lbs tire pressure all around.
The Goodyear was an easy decision for us as we have had them on the Wife's
03 Liberty over a year now.

Re: DuraTrac or AT T/A KO2

I notice at highway speeds the tire psi will increase as much as 20%, going from 30 to 36.
I never thought there would be that much. Dose anyone else notice this? Is it because I have psi so low?

Re: DuraTrac or AT T/A KO2

I do have some very minor rubbing or almost touching. The tire close ups are in exit mode.

Re: DuraTrac or AT T/A KO2

I had my tires rebalanced and now they are fine at least up to 80. Should have done it sooner. I had them rotate the tires at the same time. While the tire were off I saw where some rubbing with one tire, in one spot, surprisingly it was the front of the driver side rear. Maybe gas tank weight? I was only on some backroad in Death Valley and Big Bend Parks, not much articulation, but it probably maxed out this jeep.

My jeep is black the red is reflection of Discount tire jack.

Should only rise about 4psi if set correctly. Too low and they heat up more, too high and they dont heat ul as much and the risenin pressure will be smaller.

I ran the Duratracs on my JK wrangler and loved them though they seemed to go out of balance quickly and easily. I soon realised with the size of the block gaps the size of the rocks it picks up are enough to throw out the balance!!

Once I realised that as soon as I get a wobble I check the tyres and flick out the rock and all good again. Will be fitting them shortly to my KL Trailhawk.

Thanks SeaComms,
Yes about 4lbs or about 10% is what I have experienced. I never thought it would be that high.

Thats a good point on checking tires for debris when i detect wobble. In this case it was soon after instal & the vehicle never left pavement. I finally had them rebalanced and the wobble is gone.
