Hi guys anyone know what the largest tyres you can fit on a stock Gen1 Durango are. Im looking to replace them very soon and I cannot afford a suspension lift right now, Im also in two minds about doing it as I need this as my daily driver right now aswell.

depends on what you want to do, if you realy want to get seriouse your gona haveto do a whole lot more upgradeing first any way, just get something with an agresive tread, it will do more for the truck than just size

Didn't they come with 31's from the factory? There doesn't look to be much room to play around with with.

Ive decided against 4x4ing the durango so im gonna get a Jeep Wrangler or Toyota FJ.

Durango will never do what I want to do.. its to big heavy and long!

Indeed. Although that's ironic coming from a guy with 31's. At any rate, buddy with the Durango...you've got IFS, for starters. You could probably wheel with 33's at the max before breaking shit. 4-6" of lift would clear those on your truck. Why would you wheel a newer vehicle anyways though, are you a showoff or something? Just get an old piece of shit for wheeling, it's ridiculously hard on trucks mechanically and cosmetically. Offroad rigs are money pits and they always wind up looking like shit.

Hence im now looking at getting a YJ as the Durango is totally unsuitable for what I wanna do.

I know this is an old thread and I'm new to the site but I have friends with YJ's with 33's on them and they are impressed at where my stock Durango with 31x10.50's will go. I don't know why he thinks his Durango won't do what he wants.

My 03 dakota is longer than a durango and with the right tires ( and a posi rear) will go most places. I have been plenty of places with a 3" b/l and 32" yokohama geolander atII's with the posi. One trip was up mount woodside in january 06 and I was trucking through 13" of snow.
