Re: Grand Cherokee Trailhawk owners

Here are a couple more I didn't realize I had handy, from Broken Arrow trail in Sedona AZ.

They are Goodyear Duratracs in the SL (standard load) rating, 275/65/18. i'm getting about 18-19 MPG in my usual commute which is about 15 miles each way, half hwy and the other half city including downtown Salt Lake City traffic.

On longer hwy trips which usually include mountain passes and 80 MPH speed limits I get between 21-23 MPG. Also on longer trips I'm usually running pretty heavy full of camping gear/recovery gear/etc.

I hand calculate every tank and also account for the roughly 5% error from the tire size change. On a long stretch north of Flagstaff AZ running a pretty steady 65 MPH the EVIC was showing just under 30 MPG....that tank I ran from Flagstaff AZ to Taylorsville UT which was just few miles under 500 miles and I still had almost 2 gallons or so left in the tank if I remember correctly.

No problem..I love them. Just be sure to go with the SL version not the LT version. There is a pretty big weight penalty going to the LT version. I don't tow ever so I didn't need the LT version. The SL Duratracs are about 9 ish lbs heavier then the stock Kevlars.....the LT Duratracs were around 20ish lbs more. Though the LT version has a 18/32nds tread depth as opposed to the SL versions 16/32nds.

I wanted to minimize the impact to my MPG while running a larger more aggressive tire. I'm very happy with them, also I was worried about increasing road noise, so far I haven't found them to be louder/rougher then the stock Kevlars.

Re: Grand Cherokee Trailhawk owners

Got mine in February. I traded in a 2015 Jeep Cherokee for it; drove in to the dealer wanting to check these out and immediately had to have it after a test drive. Already got 4500 miles on it, and I keep wanting to drive long distances...
