Today I finally ordered the Duratracs 35x12.5r18 and Fuel D611 18x9 w/ 1offset and 5 BS. Took advantage of the Labor day sale from DTD. Total $3100 for the set with Mopar TPMS, splice lug nuts, mounted, balanced and shipped to my door, minus the rebates. Let's see if the Rubicon show up first or the new wheels :)

I'm going to be upgrading my wheels as soon as mine comes. I may be dumb but what it the TPMS?

I've got 4,000 miles on mine now, 35" Duratracs (315's) No Lift, no rubbing issue yet! Don't get me wrong, if you go off road they will probably rub but for normal everyday use mine have been fine, plenty of power, smooth straight ride.

Wade - thanks for the feedback on the performance. I’ll be surprised if I get any rubbing on the Rubicon with these but will see. Your Jeep looks sharp!!

RubyLady - thats the sensor they put in the tires to measure the pressure and show you the reading in display. Stock wheels comes with it if you want to reuse them. Just easier to buy new ones and sell the stock wheel/tire sets as it is.

Ah good to know thank you.
I’m planning in getting new rims when my rubicon comes in. I’ve been addicted to the Fuel website lately

could you provide the specifics on your tires and rims (sizes and offset). Really like the look. I think if you were to add the Rough Country Spacer lift it would look perfect.

Thanks! They're 315/70/17, -12 offset on the rims

any issues with the spare tire? are you concerned about the added weight on the mount? Brake light?

I’m very interested to see how it looks with that particular offset. Its seems a lot of wheels have the -12 offset, which from what I’ve seen, has the tires stick out past the fenders by a couple inches. We have newer regulations that restrict against this, so I’m trying to find a 17” rim with a 35 or 315/70 that won’t bulge much.

Sure I'll post the feedback once I have the Jeep and the new setup. I'm not a fan of tires sticking too far out from fenders.

No, the tire fits perfectly on the bumper it doesn't push down on it, it just rests perfectly. I didn't have to move the light, it's just right. I have these exact tires and rims on my JK (I've got a TJ, 2 JK's and the new JL) and it never ever gave me a problem with the door mount. My son's JK has 50k miles on it with the same set up, he's just got the rock star rims, and we've never had a prob, the stock mount will be just fine, I promise you!

This looks AWESOME!!!
I am debating between Nitto Trail Grapplers 285/75/17 and 315/70/17. I have a 2018 JL Sahara. No rubbing on the bigger tire? No problem with spare tire carrier? Lose any Horsepower?

Sorry for all the questions. New to this.

No rubbing at all, if it's a driver go with the 315's, if you're going to off road at all I'd go with the 285's to give you just a little extra, but I'm at 4K miles, no issues. Spare fit perfectly, it sits right on the bumper, no squished, it sits perfectly and the carrier is fine, I had these on my JK and it was never a problem. I don't see any horsepower loss, I suppose technically it takes a tiny bit more to start rolling but I haven't notices one difference, I'm often on the highway at 75-80, straight and smooth!

@ wade it looks great how far out are the tires past the fender? Thanks
About 2" past the fender, what I like the most is that without a lift the drive is perfect! I've got 2 other lifted jeeps, they drive well but nothing like this.
