Tire options 33s

Hi everyone,

I was wondering what would be better for a DD that sees moderate trails a few times a year. I have an 2006 LJ if that matters with 4.25 of lift. I am looking into the 33x12.5r15 Duratracs or DC Fun Country. I like the aggressive look of them and the fact that they hold up well on road as well as being a decent of road tire. It seems like a lot of people like the duratracs but it seems like the fun countries are pretty comparable to them. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have the Duratracs in 33x12.5 and have no complaints other than they run a little small. Great in snow and in most offroad conditions I've been in. Pretty quiet on the road too.

Out of the two listed, I'd go with Duratracs hands down.

Duratrac good for snow but if the trails include side wall rubs on roots or rocks either buy road hazard or don't go duratrac as the side walls are easily torn and not repairable and those tires cost to much to be constantly buying new ones.
