Daily Driver - which is quieter, Duratrac or BFG AT

Hello. Current tires will need to be replaced in about a month. From what I've read so far on this very helpful forum is that both the Duratrac and BFG are great choices.

But for those of you who have tried both of these, which would you recommend for a mostly daily driver car?

Thanks in advance!

If you only care about DD stay stock. I've driven BFG on every 4X4 I've owned for 19 years, have them currently on my wife's Dakota and my plow truck F150 still. That said Duratracs have better grip on the sides and will be the new tires I but on my 2011 Sahara next mud season.

Do or do not...there is no try

The only time I hear my duratracs is if the radio is off, the windows are down, and I really pay attention at 35mph. Any slower and they're silent, any faster and the top and wind noise drowns them out. They're very quiet tires.

The bfg's are louder but will last forever as far as tires are consirned. the duratracs are quieter and will still last you 40k+ miles. On road performance they are both good. Offroad the duratracs are a little better overall then the BFG's but doesn't sound like a concern to you

Yeah, my off roading will be limited but it's good to know that if I go with either of these that they'll more than do fine.
