I have seen a much more significant loss in mpg. My avg mpg with stock tires for daily driving was 23mpg, I now avg about 20mpg. For highway driving at 65 mph on a specific commute in cruise I would get 29mpg, I now get 27mpg. Now for the bigger hit- on higher speed driving (75-80mph) I would avg 26-27mpg visiting my family, that is now 22-23mpg. I understand that the reason for the loss in mpg is some drag and more effort and this is certainly seen and enhanced with higher speed driving.

I want to add that these numbers are calculated after accounting for the difference in the speedo. The display reads out lower. 19.5 city, 25.5 on my highway commute and 21-22 on higher speed freeway driving.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014


Thanks to you both for the quick response.
It seems the average is roughly a 2 MPG loss, except if you increase speed, there by pushing more air and creating greater drag. Makes sense.


Anyone with CRD try the BFG AT KO's? I ran them on my 94 ZJ limited and they were not bad either and maybe a bit lighter than the duratracs. I assume if some weight could be shed there is less mass to push resulting in less effort and saving some fuel.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

Can you guys tell me who have the qudra lift if the tires in this size will rub in the aerodynamic or sport mode. I have a 2013 v8 Summit with OR II and stock 18s. From your photos the Goodyears looks good. The stock OEM look bad and terrible in the snow. Thanks

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

What are "both ways" of turning off the air suspension that wraab mentioned? I just got a '14 JGC Overland Eco diesel with ORAII and am planning on having Americas tire put on this set of 275/65/18 Duratracs. Thanks

The Duratrac's rock, thanks for the recommendation Goonbash.

They look aggressive, drive great and so glad I bought these tires, after a 5 month wait to find some. The tires do NOT rub in any position I have put them in.

If anyone is interested...

I put the Duratracs on and have about 1000 miles on them. They're pretty much brand new. I'm selling my Duratracs. I love the tires but my wife drives the car most of the time and doesn't want them on. I'm in MD, if anyone is interested, pm me.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

Hi, I am about to order these tires and then I noticed that the LT's and the P's are both available in 275/65R18. To make sure I get the ones that fit and do not rub, are we talking about the P or LT sized tires that fit without rubbing?

Thanks!

-Leon
