if you get a chance you may want to check these out. ‘Milestar Patagonia’ They are aggressive & Ride soft unlike some AT Tires.I'm looking to get 35" tires for my Jeep. I'm will used the Mopar Beadlock wheels for these tires. From where I live, we got a lot of heavy snow, so I'm looking for a tire with the snowflake rating. Surprisingly, not a lot of AT tires have the snowflake rating. I also plan to do a 1.5" Teraflex spacer lift.
Currently, I'm looking at:
35/12.5R17 GY Wrangler Duratrac
315/70R17 BFG KO2
Now, the 35" Duratrac is only available with E load rating while the 315 KO2 is available with C load ratings.
Here is my struggle:
- For KO2, the C-rating tire would ride nicely, but I hear the 315 tire is relatively small (about 34"), I fear the would look small and not as aggressive with a 1.5" lift. These tires are really nice on Raptors...
- For Duratracs, I really like the look and it seems to be close to actually 35" tire, but some say the E-rating tire is an overkill for Jeeps and will make the ride very rough. The benefit of a E tire is stronger sidewalls.
I hope to hear opinion from you guys on which tire would you prefer: 315 KO2 C or 35 Duratrac E. Also, I hear Duratrac have weak side walls, but which one has the stronger sidewall: KO2 with C rating or Duratrac with E rating? Does anyone know how much smaller a 315 KO2 is in comparison to Duratrac (anyone have a side-by-side picture)?
