Stock SR/A vs. Duratrac

I need new tires and want to keep the stock 255/75-17 size. I could go 255/80-17 if someone talked me into it (Worse mileage? speedo accuracy?)

I am happy with the SR/A comfort / road noise. How do the Duratracs compare? I'm a highway/town driver.

I took off my stock 18s and replaced them with 17x8.5 Qtec Moabs and 285/70R17 Duratracs. They're louder than the stock tires but my speedo is still 100% accurate. I guess it's due to the low tire pressure? I used a speedo app and it was spot on. Tested it in my wife's car as well. So no Flashcal was needed.

I've heard that on Duras. They were designed for commercial types with thin sidewalls. I passed as I didn't want that for a jeep. The E loads used to be made with stronger/thicker sidewalls.

I had the stock Bridgestone dueler and replaced them with the light duty (I believe a 7or8ply) they ride just as smooth as stock tires and look much better. I found them great in most conditions. Probably the only con will be the miles you'll get out of them compared to a street tire
