Tire Differences..

So the two tires I'm looking at are the Firestone Destination A/T and the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac. Both 31x10.50. I have zero experience with both. Which is the better tire?
Thanks in advance!

If I had to choose I would go the Goodyears. I run BFG AT's, they have strong sidewalks and wear like iron.

I have the Duratracs, I got them in the 33x12.50x15 flavor though. I love mine! they do very well in every situation. if you're going off road, don't bother with the Firestone A/T, the Firestone M/T gets very good reviews, and I've spoken with several Firestone M/T owners, they all say the really like them, even in the rain. I strongly considered the Firestone M/T, but I got a better deal on the Duratracs. My tj is a DD, and I trail ride several weekends in a month.

My family owns a few goodyears and from all the rigs coming in and having the goodyears they seem to love them. Good in rain and do good offroad.

I went with Mickey Thompson MTZ's and I love them tho. Great offroad and smooth on road and just loud enough to sound great but not obnoxious or deafining. I would look around a little before making a choice.

there are tons of different types. But go with what you like best.

I have no experience with the firestones tho... Sorry
