Duras ftmfw!!!
I've had a friend w/ some bfg that was stock on his wife's jk and they were too loud. These have a nice hum. I pursuaded a buddy at work to buy them and the guy with the jk is looking at getting them for his wife.

the BF TA KM tires are very loud. Mine sound like swampers and i have noticed they put me to sleep. Dura's are ugly get the KM2's i heard they are quite. Also it all depends what you use the tire for the dura isnt a M/T the KM2 is and same with the T/A KM like Morris said... all depends on what your using it for

I think they are very quiet, my old michelin a/t's were hella louder. The only way I can hear these is if I turn the radio off, and then its only a slight hum.

lol yea I hear ya. I went with the duratrac because it looks like a mud terrain, but handles more like an all terrain on the streets.

Toss a coin.. They both seem to do well in reviews, problem with opinions is most people haven't owned both.

Btw there's a bunch of pics of my buddy's 06' fx4 (silver one) on 32x11.50 km2's in my gallery

Bfg is a mud tire, it'll wear quick. Duras are an a/t. Mine have no noticeable wear at 15k kms.
