Reshod/Duratrac 275/65r18

Finally had the chance to drive to Boulder and get the 275/65r18 Goodyear Duratrac tires balanced and mounted early this morning. It was tough even sourcing these tires and finding anywhere with stock.

I got a good price & service from Discount Tires in Boulder. Mounting time took about an hour, and the service techs knew what they were doing.
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).

Looks good. Are you on air or coil?

Great pics. What is it that you have sticking out of your rear receiver?

A rear step hitch (urban parking protection, lol). Pretty handy - use it all the time.

I have Quadralift, the pictures shown were all taken in park mode for ride height. Have noticed no rubbing or issues with tires in tight corners or in the bumps thus far.

You must be lucky. I tried 275X65X18 BFG AT KO. They rubbed both in front of the tire at normal ride height. Now have 265X65X18 and they clear but are close.

Love the look of the Goodyears, will look at these when the Michelins wear out. With the larger diameter tires did have to re-calibrate your speedometer? I have been reading that with larger tires your speedometer can be off as much as 5-10%.

I used Discount Tire in Boulder, ran about $260 per tire, total with taxes and all was around ~$1260.00 if I remember correctly.

Just put these on my Jeep and am in love with them. I have had them on for 2 days and have gotten far more complements than when I had my 22's. I have them in 275/55R20.

Re: Reshod/Duratrac 275/65r18

Sorry to resurrect an old thread here, but I'm looking into a a set of DuraTracs for my 14' GC, same as OP's (even color ) but with coil suspension instead of the QL.

I'm trying to decide if the 275/65r18 will fit without rubbing, or if the 265/65r18 will be a better fit. I'll be installing a RRO Leveling kit over the weekend, so I'll have a bit more clearance up front. It seems everyone who is running this size tire is on QL and it's been difficult to find any info regarding fitment on coil setups.

Any input is appreciated!

Re: Reshod/Duratrac 275/65r18

275/65/18 duratracs will fit on non ql. Without need for RRO kit. QL is iffy due to park mode. Which we don't have on coils
