Anyone using these yet? I know they have the snowflake symbol for snow traction also. Thinking about picking these up instead of Silent Armors possibly.

I got them a few weeks ago and they have been great so far. They are very quiet, and on-road traction is excellent! I have used them in heavy rain and snow and I am very happy with the purchase so far.
I still need to try then off-road for the final verdict but that is a few weeks away.

My friend got some 31's put on his S-10. The second day he had them, we went out to my friends house and headed down to the pond to go fishing. When he went to leave, he instantly sunk and the tires didn't clean out at all. They were caked the whole time. We ended up having to get a tractor to pull him out lol. They look cool but I think they are way overpriced for what they are.

well anything is goin to have trouble in mud you just sink into mud terrains or not...and the BFG ATs dont clean out well either...im sure for an AT tire they are just fine for what you will be doing..its not a mud tire..any all terrain is going to have trouble in the mud...hence the name ALL TERRAIN and not MUD TERRAIN

Yea i agree. It looks like a hybrid more than just a AT. Most all of the AT's I've seen are just street tires.

I've been considering them for my Rubi also. I'm kinda peeved that Goodyear is making a new MTR that looks less aggressive and cost quite a bit more also. The old MTR's cost enough now they wanna jack the price up on us. The Duratrac looks great, price is right, and seems like a good alternative for those of us that drive our Jeeps daily and don't wanna drop a grand for stock size tires but also like to wheel. All I'm waiting for is someone to test them out and give some first hand knowledge on these. My MTR's still have life left so thats my excuse. lol So if anyone gets them let use know something. Sipes would be nice.

Thanks,

Mrcln1

The new MT/R's are Kevlar reinforced and have an asymetrical tread design.

Mine just came in yesterday. I get them mounted and road force balanced tomorrow, then I'll post reviews.

Next to the stock Rubicon MT/R




Tread


w/sidewall



Can't wait to get these puppies mounted. Two of the MT/R's move back to my trailer.
