Nothing iffy in park mode with QL for me, never an issue at all.

Re: Reshod/Duratrac 275/65r18

How have the tires been wearing so far? Any major decrease in milage? Are they getting loud yet? How many miles? I am in the market for a new set of tires (I have the silent armors and hate them). I am between BFG TA KO and the Duratracs. Any info would be awesome!

Well I only have about 7000 miles on them and they still look brand new. Still have the same noise level since new. Had them rotated and the tire shop said they all look good and are wearing properly. In my opinion these tires are the best of both worlds. They have the look and grip of an MT with the ride quality of an AT.

Re: Reshod/Duratrac 275/65r18

I've only had my Duratrac on for a week but I must say I'm very very impressed.. I was expecting a lot more negatives.. I had considered Duratracs on my JK but went with Mickey Thompson MTZs I now known I made a mistake back then. Duratracs are certainly an amazing all around tire. We even had 2 inches of snow today and these things were like rails.

Took more weight to balance than I expected and still have a small shake at around 45 mph.

Biggest surprise is that the 5.7L doesn't seam to be affected at all by the larger tire. Coming from the 3.8L in the JK it is a sure nice change.

tnor did you ever end up getting the 275/65/18??? If so any rubbing and what rims did you use. I am getting my leveling kit installed tomorrow and then I was debating on grabbing a set of rockstar 2 with the 0 offset

Subjective review of tires is great so far, good in snow and the wet stuff as I found out this morning. I didn't notice that much more humming of the tires than I did with the stock Michelin tires. It appears I probably dropped about 2 MPG for my gas mileage so far in testing.

Here are a few teaser shots of the new tires (want Mopar Off Road wheels so still waiting for those).






Any Chance you have pictures of this in OR1 and OR2 ?

Thanks!!
