Thanks... I like the Dura Tracs alot. They have anice aggressive look and also have a snow and ice rating. I think they are a perfect all-season tire if someone is looking for a new set.
How did you find out what ply tires those are? I am running the same size as you but in the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar. Goodyear recommended me to run the stock psi (35 psi) to get even wear out of the tires. Once you get more miles on the tires let me know if they are wearing evenly. Id like to run my tires at a little higher pressure but dont want them to wear out faster. Thanks.I definately recommend them. They need to be run at a little higher PSI seeing as though they are a 6 ply. The recommended pressure for the Commander is 35 PSI (cold), but these Dura Trac tires have a max pressure of 50 PSI... which is higher then the average tire. If you run the 35PSI, it is a very soft ride and the tires look underinflated, resulting in the vehicle being sloppy. However, I am running 38 PSI and find it a very good ride. I do feel a little sloppiness still and am thinking about putting the tire pressure up to 40-42 PSI range. This will harden the sidewalls for better handling on pavement... if I go off road, I would put it back down to 35-38 PSI for the added tread footprint.
In the end, I will say it again... they are an amazing tire, that looks very good!
You may have to get something custom fabbed, seems like there is not much aftermarket gear out there for our Commanders even from the Europeans. You can check ARB or TJM. In the meanwhile take a look at HeuyPilotVN: http://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5770&page=5 he lined his flars and bumpers with Rhinoliner I believe for protection.I would like to find a way to replace the plastic wheel flares with a tougher... maybe metal wheel flare. Also, when money allows it, I would like to get metal front and rear bumpers.
You might send a PM to GetLost and see if he will sell you a plan for the front bumper, it might save you some time if you like that design.A few guys have GetLost's stuff as well. I might try to get someone here in Canada to fabricate me a set. If it costs a few hundred more, it's still cheaper then shipping, taxes and duty and whatever else the border people try to throw on top of the price.
