    33/12.5 r15 DuraTracs Installed

    Well, I found a deal on CL that I couldn't resist. These are basically brand new DuraTrac 33s and 15" rock crawler faux beadlock steelies. The only problem is my stance is now wider than Larry Craig's. I'm not sure if I'll keep them this way or end up ordering another set of rims and sell these. They look tough as hell though and they certainly would help if I ever wanted to run Hell's Gate etc. What do you guys think?









    There's no 'I' in denial.

    Hells Revenge can be run in a stock VX as can the gate
    Tires/wheels look good!

    Thanks Billy!
    I've run Hell's Revenge but I wouldn't want to try the Gate unless I had some tire sticking out the side to save the body and cladding if I came off the wall wrong. Not saying it can't be done just that I wouldn't want to risk the damage especially at my present skill level.

    Scott,

    IMHO, that's the way a VX is s'posed to look. I may be biased though

    Definitely looks a lot better than stock, but yes, just a tad bit too much offset for my likes, but doesn't look bad by any means.

    Looks good, but you need to flex out the rear end and check for rub. That much rubber sticking out may cause some issues. I would guess the front may give you problems at full flex as well?

    Doh! Miss Blue Daisy huh? Or Little Boy Blue?
    Reminds me of the Andrew Dice Clay bit on nursery rhymes:

    I stand corrected, they are indeed MT/Rs and they are pretty damn aggressive on the road. For wheeling they will be great and I still have my stock wheels with General Grabbers I can swap anytime.
