LT295/65R18 Goodyear Duratrac on Ballistic Jesters

Finally got some Duratracs!!!!!!

Truck: 2012 Tundra w/3" front spacer lift and 2" Coach shackles in rear
Wheels: 18" Ballistic Jesters +12mm offset

Before




After








Tries DO Rub on front bumper, will be re molding plastic piece on bottom to see if that helps. Overall love the look and how quiet they are (about as quiet as the Falken Wildpeaks i had on my Tacoma)

Same tires I got and happy with them them so far. Remolding the plastic will fix your rubbing issue. Make sure you rotate every 5000 because these tires are real soft and wear fairly quickly.

Looks sweet! Those are exact wheels I wanted to get about a couple of months ago. They were backordered to who knows when. I went with Moto Metal, but I still like those Ballistic Jester wheels. DuraTrac looks really good with Jester.

I guess i bought them at the right time bc they are for sale all over the dallas ft worth area when i was wheel shopping. did you get the moto metals that are close to the same style? I liked those bc the red inserts are bolted in instead of just taped

I've seen pics where the Jesters appear bolted on, but most are taped....maybe it was cheaper for production to just tape them on

I got Moto Metal 961 (very similar in style to Jester). The wheels come with the red inserts bolted on. They do give you chrome accent in case you don't like the red. I kept the red.

I really like black Jester, but I liked chrome on better on Moto Metal so I went with chrome.

Looks great, I just got the Duratracs a couple weeks ago and like them. I want to go with either the Hollywoods or Ballistic Wizards but that will have to wait until spring. I have my steelies on them now. Mine rubbed at full lock on the skid plate, just trimmed that today and fixed it. I think I am going to just remove the front flap, doesn't rub much that I can tell but not sure whether to remove it yet or not. They are bent inwards a little so it touches.

Congrats on the new tires!

I just bought this tire and wheel combo a few weeks ago. Ballistics have the +12mm offset.

Here is what I have to say about it so far.

I have a 2011 CM TRD with ICON remote resi coilovers set at about 2.5" up front and wheelers AAL that raised the back about 3/4".

The tire and wheel combo is absolutely fantastic! It looks freaking mean.

I had rubbing at full lock on the front inside fender well plastic (directly behind the fog lights) that I trimmed per the widely documented mod. Backed it out of the driveway and did U-ey in reverse in the cul-de-sac and realized that I still had rubbing. Stood outside the truck with the SO driving and realized that I was rubbing the front mudflaps (the ones behind the front wheel). Closer inspection showed some pretty good melting of the platic/rubber mudflaps.
I tried cutting the offending piece out of the mudflaps and repeated same reverse procedure. Still had rubbing (in fact it was way louder).
I then totally took the mudflaps off up front. I now have no rubbing but these tires get pretty damn close to rubbing the body mount. I don't feel anything at the steering wheel at full lock or hear any rubbing but I am sure I have no more than 1/16" between the tire and the body mounts at full lock.

The moral of the story is really nothing that a half brained monkey couldn't find out by searching the forums here. I just wanted to remind everyone that for some reason every truck is different when it comes to who can fit what sized tires on their truck with or without a lift. These tires are a 33x11.5 tire and I had both of the most commonly found rubbing issues for 35x12 tires.
I am not a welder/cutter so I now have to figure out where I can get the body mount mod done. Although I am not technically rubbing right now, the clearance is a little too close for my comfort.

I still haven't done the body mount mod yet. All of the work I have done so far has taken me no more than an hour to trim the front plastic and remove the mudflaps. It's not that hard. The only thing you have to get used to is the sound of driving on a dirt/gravel road with more agressive tires and no mudflaps.
