Icon14 Goodyear Duratracs

Just installed Duratracs on my 02 4.0 4x4 Ranger. Got to say I like them so far. Handle the road better than my previous BFG Long Trails, look aggressive, and only a small increase in road noise.

Only bad I can see is that I lost some MPG's. But that's to be expected with such an aggressive tire.

BTW size was 245/75/16 in E load range.

I wanted C range, but they were on indefinite backorder, and I wanted new tires ASAP. Ride isn't bad with the E range, though.

I think that those may replace my MT's later this year before I switch back to the studs. Pics would be awesome!

I got them on my truck too. 265/75 R16. They are quieter than the street tires I had on before!

I'll get pics tomorrow after the lift I think...

those look good. what kind of a price?
if the price is right (better then MTs w/ kevlar) and the tread life is longer. i might consider these.

Those are so sick. The black painted wheel and tire go perfect together.

Just an update...we got about 4 inches of snow last night. Driving on the roads was a night and day difference. These are predictable and controllable, something the BFG LongTrails never were. It tracks well through heavy slush on the roads, giving much better confidence. Also grips the road much better while the roads are wet.

Ride is only slightly harsher, and that's going from a passenger tire to a E range (not my first choice). MPG was down about .75 or so, but these tires are noticeably heavier than what it replaced.
