What’s up y’all, my trucks going in the shop for a 3.5” lift in a couple weeks. I wanna keep my stock 18” wheels and am looking to change the wrangler duratrac tires out. I like how it rides right now, nice and smooth except for a lil hum with the tires, no biggie. But have seen in the threads about people experiencing some more than normal vibrations when switching out tires. So my question is, what would be a good tire, keeping the same smooth feel as the stocks? I wanna go up a tire size, maybe a 285, 295? Any good suggestions out there? Thanks

I’ve been running 295/70r18 Falken Wildpeak AT3W tires on my factory 18in TB wheels for 2 years now. They are quieter and stronger than the factory Duratracs, and they also have the severe winter rating.

Thanks, do you have a lift and how high? Experience any rubbing issues?

No lift or level for me, but I did some trimming to the inside half of the mud flap and removed the bracket hidden behind the wheel well liner. No rubbing even with the BORA 1.5in wheel spacers (similar stance to an aftermarket -12 offset wheel).

I really like my 295 70 Toyo Open Country III on stock 18s. Smooth and quiet on road and good off road too👍
