I am narrowing down between the Duratracs and Cooper STT.
Main difference being the Snowflake on the side.
This is going on my Dub after the lift, still bouncing around between sizes.
Either 265/75, 285/75, or 305/70. 6 inch lift. Either stock wheels and spacers, or some 16x8.5 with about 4.25 BS.
So some of you old hands who have been roaming the roads and trails let me know your thoughts and likes/dislikes?
Just another old fart in a Jeep... watchout younguns!!!

I absolutely love my Duratrac's. I don't think I will buy anything else as an all around tire, but I will get MT/R's when I go to 35's. My Duratrac's will be kept on their current wheels when I do this for daily driving and emissions testing. Again, love the Duratrac's and they have yet to let me down.

I ran 31" duratracs for about a year and a half. Daily driver. Still 75% tread or so. Ran eagle rock with almost no problems and it was a wet mess. Also get insane good traction in snow. JP magazine rated them #1 on snow and ice out of like 30 offraoding/mud tires. Very very good tire. Today i actually mounted some 35" mtrs since i was so impressed with goodyears product.
The duratracs are amazing. I had goodyear silent armors which i was very unimpressed so I was skeptical listening to people talk about the duratracs. But I'll be honest these have to be the best all around tire I've ever ran. I think I've used my four wheel drive twice this winter and both times were because I was on ice. And they are very good off road not mud tire good but they hold their ground.
Duratrac's all the way here. I cant wait to get another set for our Jeeps!!

MTRs are on my rig. I would say that they are amazing off road and have gotten me up trails that a AT tire would have struggled. I would state that they are not that great in the snow but they work out alright. If you are thinking of using this for a DD then the Duratracs would probably be the best bet since they are much better in the snow. Trail rig and summer driver then go with the MTRs.
