New shoes: 15' HA JGC w/ duratrac's - 275/55/20

Got these installed today. Stock everything except fogs. Fits great so far. No rub at all. Exciting to see how these do in the snow and in the icy passes here in Oregon. Was going to buy blizzaks but couldn't pass these up. If their a good solution for me highway/snow/off road I'll run them year around. Before and after pics.

Thanks! As the guy said, now it looks like a Jeep. . Who has experience with these guys in mountain passes and as a daily driver? Thoughts?

Looks great, Congratulations!
I took 5000 mile trip with them, driving from Chicago to Death Valley, LA, Big Bend, Dallas then back to Chicago. They handled well on the road, louder than stock. They did good with some mild offroad, I liked them better than BFG TaKo's I had on the past jeeps, they seem to have better grip.
I did have to have them rebalanced mid trip as I was getting vibration at around 80mph. I don't think thats the tires fault.

Thanks for your input. I've definitely noticed a significant increase in noise and the ride is a little less refined. Most was expected. I am getting a little vibration at the wheel. Since I only have a hundred miles on them I'm wondering if it will get better with time. Thoughts?

Are you noticing your odometer being off a little?

Yeah I definitely am. I wonder if a jeep dealer has a solution for this.

Not loving the look of them with the Summit/SRT body kit that the HA has. But if it's needed then whatever works for you. Still a nice ride, regardless.
