It might be close, but i ran 305/65R18 (which converts to 33.6x12R18) bfg on a leveled 2011 so yours should fit. I also had 285/65R18 trail grapplers, and they did wear excessivly fast. i got maybe 25000 km out of them.

Hey guys I have a stock 2011 3500 and want to run the Duratrac 296/65/18 or or the 275/70/18 will either of these work? I do not want to level the truck at this point.

Thanks in advance

I doubt the 295's will fit without some fender modification...my tires required some beating on the inner fender and I cranked my torsion bars up a little.

The 275's should be fine with no lift or fender mods, though.

85K as of now on a set of Duratracs. Could go another 5K however with the snow upon us I think it's time for a new set. No complaints - not too noisy and they handle well.
Rotate about every 15K and keep the pressures up - I have found that even a 5# pressure difference can be felt dramatically. Usually keep 55 up front and 60 in the rear and that seems to handle and wear well.

Won't go wrong with a set of these.

I'm running Nitto Terra Graplers on a 2008 with 20's leveled and have gone thru three sets in 36,000 miles. I'm going to switch to another style/brand.

I guess I'm a slower learner , the first two sets were a different compound. I switched on the last set and it felt like I was driving on ice while towing. I called the tire shop back and they said it would go away after 1,500 miles. It did, but they still wore very fast. I like the looks of them on 20's, but the cost is getting out of hand now.

I'm checking out the Goodyear Duratrack's right now, found the 285/60/20's for $356 at tire rack so it doesn't appear they are any cheaper. If I get 40k out of them I'd be on could nine.

I was looking at Toyo Open CT AT 285/55/20 at $337.99, anyone used them?

I deal heavily in tires and have owned both Dura tracs and Trail Graps on my Duramaxes. I personally prefer the off road performance and look of the Trail Grapplers. Unfortunatley the wear on them is fast, I run quite a bit of high way and off road as I spend Sept-May hunting for birds and big game every year. I wore my Mud Graps out in about 22k miles (1 hunting season). Also the Mud Graps are absolutley TERRIBLE with side to side snow pack/ice traction (they grab just fine moving forward or backward) on snow packed roads.....especially towing trailers. I regularly pull a car hauler and a 16ft enclosed tandem axle trailer packed to the gills with goose decoys and hunting gear. BOTH are great over all off road performers from shooting fowl in muddy corn fields to spring turkey and fall white tail in the muddy creek bottoms to climbing in 2 ft of snow chasing rocky mountain elk and mulleys. The Dura Tracs perform quite a bit better on Ice and hard packed snow. As for mileage the Dura Tracs are FAR superior, yeilding at a minimum 15k more than the Mud Graps. The one and only reason I do not run Dura Tracs (this may sound stupid) is the fact that I dont like the way they look, I prefer an aggresive tire with a very bold and square shoulder, the Dura Tracs are just too round on their shoulders.
