Company Website:

The Wrangler DuraTrac is Goodyear's Commercial Traction light truck tire developed for the drivers of multi-purpose, full-sized pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles looking for tires that play hard and work harder. The Wrangler DuraTrac is designed to be a versatile tire offering off-road competence in dirt, gravel and mud with on-road composure in dry, wet and winter conditions.

Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rugged tread compound that helps resist tread block chipping, chunking and tearing, especially during heavy loading and towing applications. Its symmetric tread design combines large shoulders and highly angled center tread blocks to enhance stability and traction in dry and wet conditions. Self-cleaning, stepped shoulder blocks, zigzag sipes and Goodyear's TractiveGroove Technology at the base of the circumferential grooves provide thousands of biting edges to enhance traction in deep mud and snow. Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip throughout the life of the tire and offers a built-in rim protector to help protect wheels from accidental damage on- and off-road.

Wrangler DuraTrac light truck tires are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol to identify they meet industry severe snow service standards. Wrangler DuraTrac tires are designed to accept optional #16 metal studs to enhance ice traction.

Comments: These tires are awesome! They have tread inside of tread. Don't let the dealers tell you about their soft(er) sidewalls stories unless you're and avid rock crawler.

Pros: mountain-snowflake rated tire. beefy but good ride.
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought a set of 245/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs before moving to the mountains. I wanted a mountain-snowflake rated tire that I could ride year round. The only two I really saw available were the BFG All-Terrain and the Goodyear Duratracs ( and the goodyear walmart and canadian tire versions of the duratrac) I liked the tread of the duratrac best. so far they have wore very well and are agressive enough for me.

Comments: Okay let me edit. FACTS !!
1. Before my duratracs - no shaking,
2. after duratracs and road force balanced from tire rack< i got the shakes.
3. had them rebalanced statically - they rode better.
4. My duratrac suck.
5. I will never buy them again, nor would I recommend.

Opinion - don't waste your money for either...

Well let me post my experience first hand.
I bought Duratrac 33x12.5's on ultra 164 alum. 15x10 rims from TIRE RACK.
I had a little bounce in the whole jeep with this setup. I started w/ 36 psi went to 34 then 32 then 30 now i'm down to 28.
I went to 4wheel parts center here locally to get just a static balance and had them recheck the alignment. The alignment was fine, he rebalanced all 5 wheels and it actually rode better.
I called TIRE RACK they told me to take it to a local approved (HUNTER ROAD FORCE) tire installer and they would reimburse me whatever the approved folks charge to recheck balance. I carried it to their shop this weekend, the guy drove it and says " thats not bad" - you have a mud terrain and you will have to sacrifice some ride quality for the aggresive tire. These are (DURATRACS) were talking about. I had one wheel/tire that looked really bad on the balancer at 4 wheel parts. I asked this local guy to check it, he says it scored a 37 and with light truck tires you can get as high as 45 until we really need to do anything. He says " yea that tire has a serious wobble" I said okay I guess I will call TIRE RACK.. Needless to say this is getting utmost ridiculous. I will not buy from TIRE RACK or pay the difference for any road force balance. Does all this rant make sense?? Sorry for the long winded opinion, i'm simply stating the facts!!!

Pros: Traction, looks, price
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought these in the 33x12.5x15 size and they are awesome! They look great and are not loud on the highway. I love how they have an aggressive look of an MTR but have the road manners of an AT. I barely notice they are there except for a small hum from them. Traction in the rain is much better then my previous tires (BFG AT's). Haven't used them in the snow/ice yet.

Price: $840.00
Pros: Look great, way quieter than my old mudders. Great in the ice and snow, way better than mudders for that.
Cons: Not as good in Mud as Mudders, duh.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is the most aggressive studdable all terrain tire I could find. I live near the Rockies in Canada and drive through them all the time in the winter. These tires are awesome for winter, and judging by the looks of them, they should be respectable on most trails that don't have deep mud. Big improvement for me for 99% of my driving. I'll keep my mudders on a set of steelies, but these are waaaaaaaay better for everything else.

Pros: Much improved grip in winter over the Mud Tires, quieter on the road. Lighter that the 6 ply sidewall tires.
Cons: Not as good off road as the Mud Terrains I had, but I'll be putting a set of swampers on my old steel rims.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Haven't had them too long but they are a big improvement in ice and snow, as well as being lighter than the old tires.

Price: $175.00
Pros: Queit when new and very agressive tread and great sipping.
Cons: With miles they get noisier
Recommended? No

Comments: I now have 12,000 miles on them. Traction is great especially on river crossings over smooth boulders in deep water.

I got 32"x10.5 equvilents on 96 Cherokee. Lift about 2.5" and some trimming. FYI I could get 31x10.50s on with no triming and no lift some rubbing. Going to 32" was a big jump, requiring lift and quite a bit of trimming.

With 12,000 on them now sometimes they are quiet other times noisy with a harmonic of something, not thumping of lugs and it can come in low like 25mph. Have not figured that out.

Wear seems good, still look basically new.

BTW great looking trire get comments on them a lot.

Pros: very aggressive, quiet compared to other aggressive tires, great traction under rough conditions.
Cons: havnt had them long enough but none so far
Recommended? Yes

Comments: when in the process of lifting my jeep yj 4inches i was looking for aggressive tires that would be good for a DD but at the same time if wanting to have alittle fun when the grounds get wet after raining. i ran across this tire. i suggested them to a friend of mine who has a yj already lifted so he got them before me and made is jeep look very mean. so i went on and bought a set of 4 33x12.50 r15 for 836.96 for mounting and balancing. my yj is a DD most of the time and spend alot of hwy driving. tested the tires 1 time in mudholes and they did great and i mean deep mudholes and the best part i left my jeep in 2wd! aggressive tread almost consider them as a m/t instead of a /t and they are a big difference over stock. i have alittle over 500miles on them so their still arent wearing down yet. only time will tell. when they do wear down im leaning back towards the duratracs again for a next set. they also have alittle hum down the road which sounds great.

Pros: Quiet, fantastic traction on snow/ice/wet pavement, an excellent all around trail tire too.
Cons: None so far other than finding my Jeep stripped... other people liked them too I guess.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the 285/75-16 on stock MOAB rims. 3-ply sidewall, load range "E". A little firm maybe, but greatly improved ride over the stock Rubicon MT/R's that were on it, particularly in winter/wet conditions. On the trail, I've found them to handle anything the MT/R's did. I would consider this a cross-over AT/MT tire, or AT++. I don't avoid mud, but don't mud bog either, which is where I expect these tires would run out of traction. I only have experience with the MT/R on my Jeep, and consider the Duratrac to be their equal or better for a DD and moderate trail use.

Only down side is someone thought as highly of them as I did and I found my Jeep sitting on it's axles one fine Tuesday morning. I've replaced that set with another set of MOABs/Duratracs because I was so pleased with the improvement they made to my Jeep. I also got Gorilla locks now on EVERY stud.
