In the market for new tires and........

I think I have decided to go with the GoodYear Wrangler DuraTrac. Now some questions that come to me are ...

-Does anyone has an opinion on them?

-What kind of life you would give them if this is my daily driver (I put about 8-10 street miles a day on my jeep, not too substantial)?

-Whats the largest size that would fit on my stock TJ Sahara (I have 31"-10.50 now, can I go to 32")?

-If I wanted to go with 32"-33" tires would a 1"-1.25" BL do the trick or am I moving into the 3" SL range?

-Is there another resonably priced set of tires I should look into (wanting to spend <800$ for a new set of 4)?

All the help and advice is greatly appreciated.

I just put 31" duatracs on my stock 98 tj a few weeks ago. I think they are a great tire for the money. Not much road noise except a pleasant hum. I don't think they come in a 32" and if you go with 33" you'd need a bit of lift. I don't have any rubbing issues at full turn which is good with my tj being stock for now. I think they look awesome on jeeps and alot of forum members run duratracs so you'll probably get alot of feedback..good luck

From what I have seen on here and my own personal experience-the GY Duratracs are THE choice for a Jeep that is going to be off road. The BFG's which I have and prefer are known for 50k puls miles but don't have the rep that the GYs do for off road. It kinda depends on what your use will be. The GYs also frequently have rebates ask/check around, by the time is all said and done, cost between the 2 is almost a toss up.

I have a '04 Sport with 2" OME lift and run 31" BFG's have been told I could go up to 33"s but would need to change wheels-and for flexing of road really should have BL as well----so I will stay with my 31's------ for now.

Good Luck!!!
