Which A/T tires should I get?

I've heard a lot of good concerning the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac, and the Toyo OpenCountry A/T. Any of you that have previously owned either that would have pros/cons for either? Or any other suggestions of a better A/T tire choice?

A real all terrain tire would be the Nitto Terra Grappler, the BFG All-Terrain K/O, or yea the Open Country.

I have 33x12.5" Duratracs and they are more on the mud tire side, kind of a hybrid. I'm surprised at how much traction they've given me in and out of the mud. But that being said they are great tires, haven't really hydroplaned at all either and they look awesome.

They also are cheap. Mine were $178 a tire plus tax from Discount Tire.

Hope this helps!

Toyo open country at2.
65k or 50k warranty....second are the wildpeaks @50

QUIET! I have a soft top and there was no audible change when I switched from the stock wrangler sra's. Even when I had a flat on the freeway, I couldn't hear it.

Customer service - top notch. No long wait times and as mentioned above due to a sidewall puncture (my fault) they gave me 50% off since I didn't purchase road side hazard warranty.

Drivability - sticky on pavement even when pushing it on mountain paths (no skipping of tires compared to my old pro comps mt2 on my previous truck) and contours perfectly when aired down for any environment. I'm taking it to the snow today so we'll see how she does. Mud, rock, sand, dirt so far performs very well even when fully aired.

Pricing is also fair. My 285/70/17 were about 220. Duratracs were 270, and falkens were 200 when I shopped for mine. Shop around for better deals since a member got his for about 970 for all 5 mounted/balanced/installed.

My favorite - new to the market, hence all the pros.
