Between the two you mentioned id go with the bfgs because of the 3 ply sidewall..the duratracs are a 2 ply. I have the kelly version of the duratracs almost the same tread they are awesome tires but the sidewall cuts easy. My next tires will be bfg km2s mainly because i can get them less than half price at work

I had BFG AT and loved them. I took those tires through some pretty tough trails at RC and they performed excellent.

I always like BFG tires. Also like Dick Cepek Fun Country II's. . . . However, I just purchased today some GY-Duratracs. So far they ride nice, but they are only 1 day . .

I got a better deal on the GY, over BFG's and D-C tires.. Either choice is great!, If you can get a better deal on the BFG's I would go with them

Depending on the size you want, the Goodyears MTRs are almost impossible to get, and the 35 12.50 15 bfg km2 tires are hard to get also.
