babydaddy I currently have 33" Duratracs with approx. 32,000mi. on them. I'm running 30lbs. After about 25,000mi. they did become a little bit louder, but other than that they've been the best tire I've owned. Had BFG T/A KO, Cooper ST, Mastercraft AT. Looks like I will get another 10-15,000 depending on how much off-road I will do in the coming months.

To get your PSI right, use the chalk test. See post #54 in the link below:

Highway speed drifting

You should keep the PSI the same for driving in snow on roads, unless you're in something Biblical. For deep sand and mud and off-road snow, I wouldn't air down below 15 PSI, or you could break the tire's bead. If you do decide to air down, make sure you have some way (on-board air, etc) to air back up before you get back on the roads.

Good info.... thanks

Thank you very much for that information. It's a great help to me. I really appreciate it!
