GY Duratracs or BFG All Terrain????

I am in need of new tires, and i narrowed my search down to these two tires.
I am wondering what you guys think of these tires, and your suggestions on which to get?
Or others?

Any experience with the tread wear on these too? (Do they wear like iron?)

I've been running the Duratracs on my tj for about a year now and so far they have been great. I run a lot of pavement and a little trail now and then. The traction in all conditions, rain, snow, mud is excellent. Relatively quiet and great road handling. The tread seems to be holding up very well. I have put about 15,000 miles on them. Of course I would recommend them, but then again there are those on the forum who will say the same for the BFG's.

Depends on what terrain you plan to be in the most. Are you on the highway a lot? How much off-road wheeling will you be doing? I've had BFG All Terrains on every 4 wheel drive vehicle I've owned over the past 20 years. They are quiet and handle well on the road and perform admirably in a variety of off-road terrain. I live in the northeast and they are great in the snow as well. They also wear very slowly . . . as long as you keep them balanced and rotate them. Only situation that they won't shine in is deep mud, but they aren't designed to be a mud tire (go with BFG Mud Terrains if you plan to be in the muck a lot). In fairness though, I don't have any experience with the Duratracs but I also must say that I've never had good luck with other Goodyear products (i.e Wranglers). Just my two cents worth; I hope it helps!
