I've been working on setting up a second set of wheels tires for some hard off road abuse, while keeping my nicer tires for casual driving and much better gas mileage. Doing this on a budget meant that I was really limited in choices, but I finally got a setup that I think fits well.
First up, I found some wheels that came off a WK2. They're a set of 18s, and while they originally were given a silver finish, the amount of curb rash and scratching meant they needed some work. I decided to paint them black to see how they looked, and I think they turned out pretty good.
I also found a set of used Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs to throw on the wheels. They're 275/65R18s, or 32s. They fit pretty well, though even with the pinch weld mod I get some rubbing at full lock.
I'm also running a set of 2" Spidertrax spacers to give me enough backspacing to clear the upper ball joint.
Overall, the setup is working pretty nicely so far. These tires are much louder than my General Grabbers, but they've been great so far. I threw them on for a trip to the dunes this weekend, set them to 15 psi, and they did far better than my Grabbers did. I suspect this is primarily due to the extra width, but they never felt even remotely close to digging in. I was able to climb some hills even the larger rigs struggled with, and there was plenty of grip even on some very sharp descents.
