Duratrac's are amazing. From the reviews I've read and from how mine are wearing I should have these tires for years. They show no signs of wear and I've had them for 15k so far. Even the little factory nubs are still there! Plus they are SUPER quiet for what they look like. They are pretty wicked.

i got duratracs on my 04 at stock height and love them. They went right through about 8-10" of snow no problem, mostly had it in 2wd. They are very quiet for being agressive as they are, although i rotate them about every 1500 miles to keep the noise down. Def recommend these tires and i drive on them every day, the noise is not loud enough that it cant be covered up by the radio.

^x2 I have duratracs too and i love them they seem to do great at evrything i throw at them. They are superb in the mud and dirt the only thing i would have to say is at the beach if you put it in 4low they dig like crazy but they also pull you through while they are digging many people get jealous. Mine are 285/75/R16's though.

I had duratracs on my 97 exploder, DD, and those things rocked in the rain, and on dry pavement, werent very loud at all and wore very slowly. they are currently on my managers truck and they're about 2 years old, with porbably 30,000+ miles on them and they still have tons of tread on them. But Ill porbably be running BFG A/Ts on my rig.

I think it may be the angle. To me they're pretty aggressive for a quiet a/t.

That picture doesn’t do them justice. They look much more aggressive in person. In my opinion, they are more aggressive than the Nitto Terra Grapplers, which is one reason why I chose to go with them. Either way, practicality trumps looks for me when it comes to a tire. Not everyone wants or needs a mud terrain.

Yeah, that's the same reason I went with em too. I had them shipped to my grandpa's house because it was a little cheaper and he took one look at them and ordered a set for his F-350. They're definitely alot better looking in person.

I've always thought the Pitbull Growler looked SICK



Too bad the radials don't come in with 33x12.50x15 or 35x12.50x15...or 285/75/16...or 315/75/15...If they did I think I'd try a set out
