    Default New Goodyear Wranglers DuraTrac

    I am looking for some new tires, while these are a new tire I am wondering if anyone here has them yet.
    They are rated for mud and snow. And are running the same if not cheaper then BFG ATs. Anyone??

    I had great tires before but unfortunatly they are no longer made, so I really have no idea which way to go now. I have a tires plus in my town and they are a little pricey, and i also have a small family owned goodyear shop (they do everything on my truck) and would like to keep my business with them. And these really cought my interest and want to go from a 265 to a 285/75/16 for my beast

    that is a great tire, i compare it as a in between all terrain and mud tire, they are the replacement for the Workhorse tire witch lasted forever i dont run them yet but i will, have installed a few sets and have not seen a complaint yet, expected to get 50k plus on mileage

    I kinda thought they looked like the workhorse, How about the goodyear silent armours that are replacing the AT/S, Those duratrak are 217 a pop at my local tire shop

    My son just put them on his '08 sierra. Nice tire,not too loud on the highway,very good off road.

    I just put these on my 2001 silverado with a 3" lift. I went with 285/75 16. I am about 400 miles into them and love them. Very quiet for how aggressive they look. They handle great in the snow here in Ohio, haven't had anything over a foot yet, but I never used my four wheel drive yet. Excellent stopping traction.

    I also looked at these tires, BUT the guy at NTB told me anything with a "side bite" would be extremely noisy which is why I stuck with the BFGoodrichs this last time. I just hate to spend a good chunk of money on something, that just happens to be a glorified noise maker.
