Kelly Safari TSR and GY Duratrac same?

I read that Goodyear owns Kelly and that the Safari TSR is essentially the DT with a slightly different tread pattern. The Kelly is substantially cheaper when you add the cost of 5 tires. Talk me out of the Kelly's!

True.

I believe Daniel_M runs the Kelly TSR's.

No point in talking you out of it. Like wolf stated, they are essentially the same tire. The Fierce Attitude MT is also manufactured by Kelly and is similar to the DT and TSR, but is a MT.

Wow. I saw those on a rig in a pic the other day and thought they were DTs until I looked closer. Since then I've been wondering what they were. Cool.

Kelly tires do not have the current Goodyear promotion or Tread lightly ($160 in rebates)

Depending on what angle you work, you might be able to beat the money saved by that GY/TL promo by going with a Kelly. Just a thought.

I run the Kelly TSR in 315/75R16, essentially 35”, and I love them. They are manufactured by Goodyear as is the Fierce brand. I picked mine up here in Glendale for $177 a tire but they have since increased in price to $245 a tire, still a cheaper 35 to run though. When mine wear, I’ll be doing the same ones again.

I think this might be the way to go. After looking at Daneiel M's they are almost indistinguishable to the DT's and for this price cant beat it.

Just found them a bunch cheaper and bought ..http://www.onlinetires.com/products/...+tsr++bsl.html

$188.17 per tire however their shipping was nearly $400 killing the benefit of the sale price. I then called Tire Depot and they matched the sale price with shipping for less than two hundered. Delivered to my door total price for 5 tires $1096.95.

I looked at the Kelly, Fierce, & Walfart Authority, but ended up w/DT's because of the size I chose. All of these tires need more/bigger sizes available, IMO.

I got the dt's... Rebates and promos made them a better deal, and I love the set I already have...
