Im looking at tires too, and its between the maxxis bighorns, goodyear duratrac and cooper stt's.
my friends dad runns the maxxis on his dodge diese 2500. he has had them on amd while a tows things often. His kids also did a couple burnouts and they still look good tread wise. And we live in CT so they saw snow. Of course ice and rain is a little differnt and they willl brake loose some times.

yea man those are the exact three i was looking at too. i decided against the stt's because they only came in a 10-ply that i could find and i would rather have a 6-ply to be easy on the inline 6 ha. but i love the look. and i think the bighorns look a lot more beefy than the duratracs and they are a bit cheaper too

yea, i hear ya. I have general grabber A/T's right now and i want a more aggressive look thats good on the streets. The duratracs look like a very good cross breed (MUD with A/T). I have seen the maxxis over the past year on my friends dodge so i figure thy will be fine for my driving. The STT's were just a cheaper/ good looking tire. It all comes down to price and sizeing. I was going to go 33/12.5 but unless i get a lttle more lift i and thinking 32's so thats cuts out the Duratracs.

I hear they do okay. Somone on another board was selling a set to buy something different, cause they didn't do as well as he wanted. I guess they are quiet though.

I've had my bighorns about two weeks now. I like them a lot, they are very quite on the road, i drove from GA back to VA and i could barely hear them. As far as off road I'm not sure I've only had them in cow pastures nothing crazy. so far so good far me.

Excellent wear, I havent measured but there is still lots of tread depth. Havent had an issue with chunking on rocks either. The only thing I do is have them siped before winter, this makes them perform well on the icy roads.

What size you trying to get? Lucky for me I picked a very un-popular size. I ordered mine from Summit.


And Im actually getting 32x11.5x15 but I can post a pic. Sometime tomorrow around this time I hope.

I've got a set of 35's on my TJ. The wear has been really good for an MT. Granted, my Jeep isn't a DD, but I've had them on there for...over 3 years I think now. I got them used (worked at a dealership, and they came in on a trade in), but still with a lot of tread. I've put a good 15-20k on them, from driving around town, to trails, and from here to Moab and back. They've done really well both for wear as well as grip off road. For the cost, I think they're one of the better tires out there, and I wouldn't hesitate to get another set.
