Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac Tires

Anybody on here run them??? I've been reading a lot of good reviews on them and seeing some good videos on youtube. What is your experience with them? How well do they wear? When I run off my current set of tires, I am thinking about getting a set in 285/75/18's for my truck.

With my original post about "Tire recommendations" it would have be nice if we could have started a poll with a rating system to see what tires come out on top and what tires to stay away from

I have a set of them on my wrangler 315/70/17 and love them. Great traction and seem to wear really well.

I get this kind of information from Tire Rack's website.

I used to run Wranglers because that is what came from the factory on my Ford Explorers and Bronco twos. They did not get the millage I thought they should get. I switched around til I found Cooper Discoverer AT3s and I never looked back. Good traction whiteout being noisy and I got just under 50 grand on the set I replaced when they still would have passed inspection last Nov because I didn't want to worry about my tires when I went up to Elk Co to hunt elk.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

My experience is that they are good traction tires, but wear too quickly to justify the price.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

the duratracs are kinda known for weak sidewalls.
folks who wheel 4X4s tend to avoid them like the plague because of this

they are not to be confused with the duratracs with the Kevlar sidewalls ..
they run around $400 each

These are the ones I'm talking about. They run like $300-$400 apiece depending on the size. I've never seen a bad comment on them other than some say they're a bit loud. Never seen a single comment on them about weak sidewalls and some reports have people getting 100,000 miles on a single set of tires.??? If I got anywhere near that I wouldn't mind paying $400 apiece.
