As far as his question.. since he said "overall" best AT tire I'm going with the Duratrac. Those rocked in the snow, dug like a MT in the mud, and were quiet enough on the road to not drive me nuts. Very very good tires. Not perfect at any one thing...but he said "overall" best so they are the best.

What people fail to realize time and time again is that with BFGs they are extremely sensitive to air pressure. Performance with them will be a night and day difference in adverse conditions if they are not aired correctly for the vehicle at hand. Most people from the Wrangler crowd have them aired up way too high.

Its not necessarily rocks you have to worry about. Its the branches and roots. Thats how both those Duratracs got trashed that I witnessed.

X2

Besides those mentioned things, sometimes mud has things buried deep: metal pieces; glass; nails and such. They'll kill a side wall and great tires sometimes. Mud can be dangerous too

Was at my local GY place today and they also told me Goodyear was phasing out the Duratrac. Didn't know the timing yet but they said Gy had notified them of the phase-out.
