They're 33x12.50x15 Goodyear Duratracs. I haven't really had a chance to test them out well, but the small mud holes I've gone through I had no issues, they're a pretty light tire comparatively so I can (theoretically) keep my stock tire carrier, smooth on the road and in the rain, and a light hum on the highway. I love em. GoldenSahara has them too, and well you've seen the craziness he does lol.

You would be surprised how much a half Watt makes.
I think my cheapo swr meter measures from 1 to 4 or so. Ill be sure to find the channel and fine tune it, thanks for the tip!

Glad to hear you like the Duratracs. I'll probably be getting mine this week! The only thing I don't like about them is that they only measure to about 32" instead of 33".

Yeah I was disappointed about that. I think mine measure 32.2" or there abouts. Oh well, they fit nicely.

How are yours wearing? How many miles do you think you'll get of of them?

Well, it might be beneficial to me that they are a little smaller because I'm gonna run them with only a 3" lift with 3/4" spacers up front. I won't have to worry about rubbing the flares too much.

I have around 2500 miles on them I'm guessing. They show little to no signs of wear so far so I'm pretty happy. Not sure how long they're supposed to last but I imagine as long as any A/T.

I've heard they ride good on road and off. I've also heard that they clean really well in snow and water (good traction). Don't have 'em yet though so I don't know from experience.

Ill take a pic tomorrow for you to compare. The spare and the other tires look nearly identical though the other four are dirtier of course. I have had great traction on wet roads I suppose due to the siping. There have been a couple of really heavy rains here in VA that left the roads covered in 2-6in of running water because the ground was saturated. I was taking my girlfriend home and hit a dip in the road that I couldn't see at 30mph and water hit the windshield. After all of that, I never felt like I didn't have traction. If you do a lot of rock crawling, you might want a set of tires with another ply though. They have a thinner side wall than tires such as the MT/R of course.

Edit: I can't wait to try them out in the snow next winter!

got cut off by a fast traveling vette or mustang (was a muscle car sound that i remember) on a minimal visibility flash thunderstorm after football practice dead tired and he flew by me almost hit me i didnt see the puddle and next thing i know im floating with no control catch a little grip but then the mud sucked me in sideways into 4 trees ( im tired idg about my grammar right now) still get haunted by it every now and then when i sleep

Wow. You're lucky to be alive man. That's crazy I hope you have peace from those flash backs. I tend to not slow down when it rains and I haven't hydroplaned with these tires yet. The siping really helps I feel like.

Blackhawk, you are one lucky man! Someone up there must really be watching over you. That's two fatal crashes that you survived. Hope your flashbacks go away. Sorry man.

By rig do you mean 18-wheeler? And yea, you have to drive defensively 100% of the time. There's a lot of idiots out there. A lot of texting idiots.

Yea I've heard them called rigs before but a lot of people on here call their Jeeps rigs so I wasn't sure. And yes, as far as I know, you can get any tire siped. Usually regular tire shops will do it. I've heard that it costs about $20 per tire but I'm not sure. I guess it depends on the shop too.

Most MTs you can get siped at a tire shop I believe. The duratracs come siped though.

If you get it done you're only supposed to do the inside lugs of a MT other wise there might be chunking ans what nor.

I've never heard of any disadvantages of siping. Just make sure your tires aren't bald because it wouldn't do any good with no tread. I would get it done by a shop though because you may end up puncturing a tire if you don't know what you are doing. I don't think the tires would chunk unless the sipes are REALLY deep.
