Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

Thanks. Completely changed the look, much more sporty and aggressive looking. The 275/65r18 Duratracs were such a tight fit they fooled the tire shop install guy who swore they would rub. They do not rub at all but are very close to the fender liner on the rear wheels.

Here is a pic at normal ride height.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

I'm looking for a set of these 275/65/18 Duratracs. The 1st shop I called had none in stock and couldn't get them. A Goodyear store nearby said they were on national back order - they found a few they could have freighted in.

Really surprised to see they are that hard to get. Goodyear shop tried to switch me to Kelly TSR's but they don't look as good to me as the Duratrac's do. Forgot to mention that Tire Rack appears to have them in stock.

Local America's Tire shop fortunately found a set locally for me (SF/Bay Area), otherwise they said that the new supply from Goodyear was about a month off.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

America's Tire in Orange County California got me a set in 2 days and beat the 3 other quotes i got by 100 dollars. Plus their hundred dollar cheaper quote was tax included and the other quotes were a hundred more without tax added yet.

Hey to get off topic but...what does the wording say on your hood? Whatever it says it looks pretty good on there...

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

I really like how those Mopar off-road wheels look on your Jeep! Makes me miss my old white GC. But I really like my Maximum Steel version now, wondering how those wheels and tires would look on it. Thanks for posting all your pics, really helpful to me.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

Looks like it says "DIESEL TURBO".

I like those wheels. We should install them at the factory.

Re: Duratracs and Mopar offroad wheels on a 2014

Thanks. Yes it says "DIESEL turbo". Makes it look a little sportier and makes that muscular flare on the sides of the hood pop a little more.

amd thank you to all the forum members who did the leg work on this tire size. Much appreciated.
