    Spindles , Bilstein 5100s set @ .85, eibach coils, rear 4 inch block. FJ steel wheels, 285/75/17 g2s
    I have rear tsb and billies set @ 1.75 and I'm looking to upgrade to duratracs. My question after hearing a lot about how the 265s look like 285s makes me wonder if I should just go with the 245s to get the 265 look ? For those of you who have experience with this tire your input is much appreciated . Also a good place to purchase would be great too !

    I'm really starting to like the Duratracs... Might have to get those as the next set of tires on my truck. How do they perform in mud? Not a mudder, but in FL it's everywhere...

    i dont know if id run duratracs in FL. the tire compound is somewhat soft and warm temp tend to wear them pretty quick.
