Goodyear DuraTrac v MT/R Kevlar

I am really leaning towards getting rid of my stock tires and getting DuraTrac's. There seems to be lots of good feedback on them.

I have a 2011 JK, I mostly use it as a daily driver in the city/ freeway. But I also like to do easy/moderate trails at the weekends. Which would you recommend? I am looking to stick with Goodyear, so that I get my $100 TL discount.

I intend on dropping from a 17" to 16" wheel and going with a 265/75R16C.

Yes they are, and I love them...however when I bought them they did not have the fade resistant ones available...but nothing a little spray paint wont fix...actually painted them this past weekend. They actually werent that faded anyways, just a little lighter than when i got them.

I'd say Duratracs if you are talking about a dd. They are great on road, and have impressed me off road. Ours is daily driven and some off road, have accumulated 35k miles in them without any issues.
