    Default 285/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs on stock 2500HD rims

    Anyone have this set-up on their truck? Looking for a good offroad/onroad all terrain that does well in the snow and i want to go from 265/75/16s to the 285/75/16s. I have heard the stiffness isn't quite up to par and cornering is a little treacherous on the Duratracs but everything else is superb on them. Anyone?

    I've never had these tires on a truck, but I do currently have a set of 31 duratracs on a 93 4runner and they are great tires. Not any noisier than the street tires that had been on the vehicle, and have gotten me through some serious snow and mud. plus they look really good.
    I would recommend them

    I had the DuraTrac's on my 1500 and loved them! You will be very pleased with the tire and I think the size will be perfect!

    I have the 285's on my 07 2500 and the rub when ever you make a sharp turn but other than that they are great tires

    I've got a leveling kit on my 04 2500 so that shouldn't be a problem. How do they feel in the corners? Are they stiff enough for you?

    Make sure you get the right load range. I got my DuraTrac's in a C and they were very soft. 1 of the reasons I got rid of them, but that was my mistake.

    I have the Duratracs (265's) on my 07 Suburban 2500 on the stock rims. I have load range E. Real stiff ride but these Tires are outstanding in the snow. This is my second set of Duratracs. I had the 315's on my 09 H3 that i sold.
