I stopped by America's tire tonight to have the tires rotated on my cummins and asked how much for 285/75/16's duratracs. I was quoted $189 ea. They are $182 on-line at tirerack.com so it seems to be a good price. Likely my next tire.
I would go back to the tire place to get that balance issue checked out. I really don't think an all terrain tire should vibrate at 70mph. They should be able to balance the tire better than that. Your not that much bigger than the BFG Mud Terrains that came stock on the JK Rubicons. My friend has one with badly cupped tires and he has no 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
Go me...I Just got the new dura trac's...The size I got is 33/12.5/15...They ride very well for the type of tire it is...They are a soft tire...The reason I went with them is for the snow rating...We drive in the mountins and on fire trails...So for the ride home...I realy like them and can't wait to see How many miles I will get out of them...I don't know how to post pics on here...
So if you want to look I have them on photobucket...user name all3orus
Post a link to your PH. I can't seem to bring it up.
I was looking at this picture, there are some interesting little scales in between the treads. I wonder what the purpose is for that? Maybe to break suction in mud or snow? I'm anxious to hear how these tires do in snow. They might be my choice for a winter tire.
I only paid $137 ea.at Tirerack in Reno. 33x12.5x15

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
