My buddy just bought the Federal Couragia M/T's in 285/70r17 and a week later I bought the Goodyear Duratrac's in 275/70r18. Both are almost equal in size and width and both most certainly look awesome. We've both had them on for approximately 6 months now and they both seem to be wearing perfectly. HOWEVER, I am currently thinking of taking a hit and selling my Duratrac's for the Couragia's because they look soo much more aggressive. Don't get me wrong, the Duratrac's look amazing, they really do, but everytime I am parked next to my buddies I find myself wanted the Couragia's for that aggressive M/T tread pattern. The Couragia's are also so reasonably priced that I'm thinking of moving up to a 35" for the same price I payed for my 33" Duratrac's. The only negative point I can think to make about the Couragia's is that they are a bit louder than my Duratrac's. All in all, I'd go with the Couraigia's. Even though Federal might not be the most glamorous name in the tire game, I can personally attest to the fact that they look great, wear well, and are great on & offroad.
