Duratracs

I'm shopping/researching for new rubber and would love to see photos of duratracs on your TJ, what size, what you think of them, and how many miles on em? I'm looking at the 275/85/16s.. Thanks.

33x12.5r15 they have been great so far. Quiet on the road and great for the mild trails I venture too. I bought them May 2012 and they still look like new!

I've loved mine so far. I have the 33x12.5. I've taken them in sand, dirt, and mud. They performed well in all three environments. I've had them for a little under 1000 miles and there is no noticeable wear so far.

absolutely will be buying another set of them. they're amazing. in Moab, I kept hearing other rigs in my group make the turkey call crawling up obstacles, something I never heard with my duratracs. after 12,000 miles, have 15/32 tread all around. 285 size.

33x12.50x15. Quiet on the road, smooth ride, pretty good off road. This pit was the first time they have let me down(so far)' but the mucky mud combined with the sand and ruts even got the better of a JKU on 35in MTRs. Excited to see how they do in the snow vs my old BFG ATs. I would definitely buy them again.

Love them. Not too loud but still work great in the mild trails and have great on road traction. Lasting a pretty long time too compared to friends of mine with other mud terrains

I've had them for less than a year. They do great in all conditions. I would buy them again only reason I didn't get the mtr k is because of the snow performance I Hurd was subpar and I don't think they would last as long and be as quiet they really are awesome only got stuck once since I've had them and the lift on cause I was going too slow through a mud pit didn't wanna go too fast like a dumb ass. Here's some pictures ....

Here's mine in a 275/65/18. I think they're great, but in this size, they're a load range E, and ride a little rougher other sizes that are C-range:

But in e load they have a 3 ply sidewall instead of a 2 like mine cause its meant for bigger trucks. As of now are all duratracs 3 ply sidewall as of the start of this year? That's what I Hurd wasn't sure if anyone Hurd that that would mean mine may be 3 ply idk

Got Duratracs about a year ago, I think they're great. Don't do any rock climbing but they're great in sand, mud, snow and grip well on a rainy highway. Pics of them on my Jeep are in my garage.
33 x 12.2 x 15.

Interesting to hear about 3 ply sidewalls. That was the reason I had crossed Duratracs off the list, because several reviews had stated the 2 ply walls were easy to tear up in rocks. All we have in central Texas is rocks. I will look into the 3 ply thing.

I was hoping someone would validate what I said about the sidewalls I wasn't sure if they changed the c rated tires to 3 ply or not this year

Yes I'm curious about this as well,, we're in and upon rocks a lot does 3 ply = E and 2 ply = D?

I have the 30x9.50R15 on my '03 sport... They're pretty tired and need replacing soon but the Goodyear website says they don't fit...?

I was just looking up some prices... Must be a glitch, no?

My 31x10.50R15

Had then for 2 years now and haven't even touched half tread yet. I rotate and balance all 5 every oil change.
Best tire I have ever owned and I will be buying more when these wear out
