After reading this thread my next set will be duratracs on my XJ. They sound pretty sick.

seems expensive for an A/T tire to me

Duratrac balancing issues

I can see where a mud terrain that size could have issues. But you should be ok with those tires. I'd at least have them look at them again. There are a lot of people on here running bigger and more aggressive tire than that without balancing issues.

Let us know what you find out. These tires are also on my short list of tires. I want the same qualities that you listed earlier.

Per your advice went back it turns out they accidently left rotor clips on tire and was off balance now hittin 85 mph rides like butter thanks to your post caught a big mistake thanks again

RRJeeps.com you would have to pay shipping since you are not in central texas. i had another guy that wanted 165 a tire but he wouldnt have em for 6 weeks. i didnt feel like waiting that long so i went with George at rrjeeps. the cheapest place i found online was 198 i believe

I'd say they are relitively quiet for this type of tire.With the top and doors off theres a little noise but I hear a lot of other peoples tires that are way louder driving next to me.A very well mannered highway tire for it's type... on ramps,off ramps,and cloverleafs ...they stick suprisingly well.

I have put almost 300 miles on them this week...The ride is great, softer than my old BFG A/T's...The little claw things in the center of the tread is for ice and deep snow...Goodyear says they help with grip in snow...If you goto their web site, their is a video about the tire...Also these tires are very quiet on almost any surface...The best thing is my wife also likes them better than the old tires

The noise level on the highway is pretty low, I honestly think they are quieter than the stock Goodyear GSA's I had.
