    When I got my 285/70/17s I got them from Discount Tire Direct. Paid $220 a tire and got Free Shipping and no CA sales tax. Ended up coming out to $840 because Goodyear had a $40 rebate at the time.

    I got 17x9 -12mm 4.5BS rims with these 285/70/17 tires and only the drivers side rubs the cab mount when i'm backing up and turning the wheel to the left :confused: anyone else having this issue with these size tires and a 3" or 2.5" lift?

    Nice shoes! Make sure you give us a write up on how they handle the snow and ice once you have put them to the test.

    Those do look great, nice blackout job on the wheels as well. I too like the TRD center caps, didn't even know they made those.

    Squad314 does have a lift on his truck but you DO NOT need a lift for 265/70/17 Dura Tracs. If you go up in size to the 285/70/17s you will definitely need a lift and will also need to trim inside the front wheel well.

    The Duratracs are awesome, all around tires. I would buy them a second time for sure, without a doubt.

    Ice is ice. I don't know any tire that is good on ice unless the tire has been modified in some way (i.e. chains, etc.) Glad I don't have to worry about driving on ice here in sunny Florida. Did it enuff up north when I was younger.

    Those that have had them for a few months - are you still happy with them? Who bailed from TA/KO's to get them and are you glad you did?

    I switched from BFGs yesterday. No complaints with the BFGs, just time for new tires and lift. Got the duratracs in 285s with a 3 inch lift. Haven't had a chance to put them to the test yet, but there was a bit of ice in my steep driveway and it climbed it fine in 2wd. They do make a touch more noise on the highway, but its worth the trade for me, they look super cool! Pics and review on performance asap.
