Duratrac Life?

I put on some 265/75's on my 2013 2dr and 90% of my driving is an easy 5.5 miles back and forth to work each day.

What kind of life should I expect out of these tires. I have them inflated @ 37 and that seems to ride decent. Also, I am guessing that I should rotate in the 5th tire when it comes time to rotate?

Thanks guys

Ive got a set of Duratracs on my Ford, had them for 4 years now and they are around 50% tread wear now.
Been an excellent tire!

I love my Duratracs. They're quiet and handle great. I run mine at 28psi for the best ride. I have 9,000 miles on them and they barely look worn.

17k on mine now. They look brand new, if you get close you'll see the tread blocks don't have sharp edges and are more rounded. But still great depth. I can see these going another 30k if not more.

Put 20K on my 33s and barely had any tread loss.

Wanted to let them wear out before I went to 35s but couldn't wait that long. LOL

Almost 30,000 miles on mine, still plenty of meat there. I use all 5 wheels to extend their life.

Yup. 5 tire rotation with every oil change. A bit overkill yes but it doesn't hurt and it's an easy schedule to use.

On the TJ I ran 33x12.50x15 DT's. I bought a set within months of the release of Duratracs - probably about 2008 and drove them until I ran over three bolts (2012), one got into the shoulder enough it couldn't be repaired. I had tread life left on them, I estimate probably another 10k could have been driven, but I decided to just buy a new set. At that time the mileage was about 57k on that set of tires, I never rotated in the spare either. I rotated every 5-7k.
