Goodyear duratracks.

Wow. I must have stumbled upon some good tires. I found a set of 31 10.50 and snatched em up. And I have seen them on a ton of jeeps. Are they that good of a on / off road tire. Or are they just the in thing right now? So far I really like em. No serious wheelin with them yet though. Just some short muddy hill climbs up to the barn in the back yard.

Lots of good reviews, I've always had the bfg at on my tricks and Jeep, but probably going to try the duratrac on the work truck next time.

Have them and love them on and off road. Not the best in mud, but they hold their own and would buy again in a heart beat. Quieter on the road than the muds that came on my Rubi, not much worse in the mud, great in snow and rain, which is important here in New England.

I've had the big ats. And I think the duratracks will last a little longer due to rubber composition. And they don't ball up as bad in the mud.

They have thin sidewalls For a daily driver they are fine, but if you will be offroading, I'd go another route. I'll go MTRs on my next set.

I have them & they are a good all around tire better off road than the BFG A/T's they replaced however they are not a Mud Tire just a agressive A/T you will want to rotate them every 3000 miles or so or they will start to get irregular wear.

I love mine. Put 50k miles on them and still have good tread left.

I punctured the sidewall as well back when i had duratracs. It was just a combination of right place at the right time and some minimal tire spin on shale

Father in law had them and on a moderate trail with rocks split the sidewall from tread to bead. My Big O A/T's had no issues. He switched out all four after getting back and went with BFG's. I'm sure it could have happened to any tire, but those sidewalls are pretty thin.

I love em too. Just switched over from Terra Grapplers and the DT's Smoke the grappler's offroad.
Not as quiet as the Nittos, but acceptable for how aggressive a tread they have. Performance may vary with a TJ in comparison to my JK but they're a great tire so far.
BLK00TJ, GY started making a 3 ply Duratrac this year, so the side wall is more durable. I paid a $20 extra to get those as opposed to last years 2 ply.

So far i like mine very well, and have done some pretty moderate trails with them, only thing i dont like about them is if you get in alot of mud they dont clean their selves to well. Other than that they have been a really reliable tire, great on wet roads and snow, not to loud either. If it wasnt for all the mud here (rains alot and everything gets sloppy on the trails) and rocks (thin sidewall) i would get them again when i go up to 33's, but im going to go with the MTRs.

I currently have 35" BFG A/T's and they are so loud and not the best for my DD. Would the Duratrak's be quieter and give me better mileage?

LOUD BFG A/T's ?????

If your A/Ts are too loud for your tastes, then you need a plain 'ole street tire.

Are you sure you aren't referring to M/Ts ??

Discount tire will price match/beat + free shipping and their customer service is the best I have ever dealt with. I have bought 10 or more sets of tires and/or wheels in the last year for work or personal Jeeps I have built for resale and trust me. You will be glad you went with them.

Yea make sure those knuckle heads at discount torque the lugs down. Came home from wheeling and thought I had a flat tire, jeeps wobbling and clunking. 4 of the 5 lugs almost spun off and one loose one holding the whole rear drivers side wheel on. Kind of scary because we just took the highway home from our wheeling spot. All the rest of the wheels were torqued to about 100. Not just finger pointing Discount Tire, could happen other shops too.
My bad though for also being a knuckle head and trusting that someone else did their job properly, almost cost me and the wife our lives. Lesson learned. Be safe.
