Goodyear Duratrac Tires ??

Looking at possibly putting these on the TJ. Anyone running them, or know of anyone running them?

I read good and bad tire review, like all other reviews. Some like it, some don't. Just wondered if anyone used them. Thanks,,,

Sorry, this is in wrong forum. Tried to erase it, couldn't. Re-Posted in tire and wheel forum

They probably have the most "great" reviews of any tire out there. They probably also have the most "poor" reviews of any tire out there.

I've found that Jeep guys love 'em, truck guys hate them. Reason is, they have a very weak sidewall that often fails on a larger, heavier vehicle but holds up fine on a lighter SUV. The tire has a HUGE following here, but on my truck forum, it's hated almost as much as Rosie O'Donell hates a pro-gun, male republican...

Aw hell, I just saw the OP was from '09... Nevermind...

Hands down the best tire I've owned. The all around performance crushes my old

Terrible on wet roads - almost got into a rear-end accident after sliding 20+ feet from 20/30 mph.

i have 33x12.5x15 duratracs on my TJ and love them. was between them and goodyear mt/r's. very very glad i went this route. expect to get around double the mileage out of these, this jeep is my daily driver. they ride/handle very well on asphalt. first snow should be coming shortly, they are supposed to handle that great as well.

I have had them on my TJ for two years and about 30,000 miles, I would say the have about 50% tread left so tire wear has been great. They have worked in all conditions very well, I have never had any issues on wet roads in fact they have worked better in every condition I have used them over previous tires I have used. They are awesome in the snow, mud, and wet roads. I have 33x12.5x15" I will definitely be getting them again. They are slightly louder than the MTXs I had before, I used to have BFGs on my old truck and these tires far out perform them, they probably won't last to 60K like my BFGs did though.

I put 30X10.5X15 on my wifes jeep a year ago and since we liked them so much I put 33X12.5X15 on my Jeep about 2 months ago. Great in snow, quiet and smooth ride. They are better than my BFG All Terrain that I had on previously.

I just got rid of my 31" duratracs. Loved them. I went to 35's and if they made a 35 in 15", I would have gotten them again.
