silent armor vs duratrac

so i currently have goodyear wrangler silent armor tires, love them to death and have not let me down yet. ive been seeing alot of people on here have the duratracs and seem to swear by them. i love the look of them and the aggressive tread pattern, but i just wanted to hear some thoughts from people that have had them and mainly drive normal roads and highway. with the occasional off road. i have an 08 JKU, stock height, current tire size is p255/75r17 if you want to recommend me a better size.


thanks in advance!

i run a 94 yj with 4in lift..the 33x12.5 duratrac tires are really awsome. i have put them in some sloppy holes and they handle really well. when you put them in thick cake mud they might clog up a little until you throttle out to clean them. i drive 20 miles each way on the freeway with them and have zero complaints i get up to 65 without issue. great handleing verry little road noise. just spent the last week running top off and you dont even hear the tires. best all around tire i could find. i wanted a tire that blended the lines between all terain and an out and out mud tire.... Bingo! they are not a mud tire but they sure are close. good luck and let us know what you decide to go with..PICTURES to prove it are always great.

My JKU Moab came with GYSA's and had the shop put them on my work truck too. They are a good combination of on and off road. I did however upsize from 245/75/17 to 275/70/17 on the Moab.

The silent Armor are awesome but they don't make them big enough.

I have 35x12.50 GYSAs and while they're a great road and light off roading tire, they lack the serious bite needed here in North Ga. Wet hills, wether mud or rock, present a major challenge.
