New GOODYEAR DuraTracs...

Just in the last month or so they came out with 33/12.5 - 15 size for the new DuraTrac which came out about same time as the new MTR Kevlar. Anyway I just picked up a set of 33s for the TJ. I thought I would share some pics and so far the tires are awesome. Going to Moab first of Oct.

That is quarter in the tread.







Here is one next to a 35/ 12.5 BFG Mud Terrain which is on 10" wide rim and the DuraTrac is still unmounted.

Also super quiet tires. I was amazed at 70 mph I did not have to turn up the radio.

Would like to hear from someone in Georgia or Alabama or Florida who has these and has taken them in the mud....no rocks here to contend with unless we build a sand castle look alike of a boulder at the beach. Wondering how well these perform in the sticky stuff.

More I drive with them on the TJ more I love them. I am going up to Mountains this weekend try them out. Can't wait. Sorry I was a bad influence. Also 4 wheel parts had the best price I could find on them so I got Discount to match there price.
