I've thought about them. Looks wise, I tend to lean towards the Duratracs.

What about performance and cost wise?

I'm searching them a bit now. I've thought about them, since hearing about them running KOH. I still don't know how they'd handle the muddy trails I'm on, more times than not.

As of today I get to spend 6-grand on a new furnace/central air......woo-hoo!

This could have an impact on my planned Moab trip, as well as getting new tires. Hopefully my lottery numbers come up tonight.

Ouch. Our furnace is 20-30 years old so I hear ya. Needs replacing. I keep the heat at 60 and the air at 78. But we need all new ductwork and insulation too. no more tile jobs? Take a trip this side of the country. North Carolina mountains are sweet and the wheeling is nice. Uwharrie and gulches are good places too.

Tile jobs are Sgt.Fuzz's thing, the other cop.

This years wheeling may be limited to The Cliffs (an hour away) with wore out 32" MTR's. (I hope not though) I still don't have a price for the furnace, and it wasn't working again this morning. I got it back on, but it needs to go, asap.

I'd have been better off with it catching on fire.

That's what I'm saying, a fire would have been better. My deductible is much lower than the $5200 the new furnace/central air is costing me.

I've been doing a lot of reading about tires, which ones, which size. I'm set on Duratracs, but I'm still torn between 265/75R16 (my current size) and 285/75R16. While the bigger tires would be nice, I'm not sure I'd like the added power loss. The 265's are cheaper too, and with my furnace-a/c issue, cheaper may win. The 265's don't suck a lot of power, but it was real noticeable in the mountains when came back from Moab (the west to east run is a steeper climb than the east to west run). I'm not sure I could even go 40 mph if I had 33's, 4.10's and the 42RLE, going up the mountains.
