To those of you with this tire, is this the perfect solution for a DD who wants an aggresive lookin AT tire? I live in Chicago, and 90% of my driving will be on roads/highways, along with snow in the winter. I hear these are great for all of these conditions. However, I read something somewhere about them doing bad off-road when aired down? Is this only for severe airing-down like rock-climbing or for most off-roading? I plan on doing some mild-to-moderate wheeling over the summer, and am debating between these and the BFG ATs, although these seem to have that aggresive look I love.

I am very pleased with them...Most of my time is spent on road and a little off road...For the type of off road I do these are very good tires...Airing down I don't do, so I can't say what is a good or bad PSI...The tires are to new to tell...As for looks they are very great looking tires...

Noise was a significant factor in my decision, along with the manufacturer claim of snow/rain performance - and the aggressive look. And to be honest - looking for something new and different. Trust me if you get them mounted and balanced correctly noise will not be an issue, they are very quiet. Of course they are new and I plan to rotate them every 3-5k miles, but I can't speak for how they will sound yet at say....20k miles plus. I've read that with improper treadwear - noise increases so I hope to minimize. But for now - trust me that they are not an issue regarding noise...

Ride softness on Duratrac

I wanted to avoid too loose of a ride and don't do a lot of low pressure tire offroading, so I went with a smaller sidewall percentage (285/70/17) versus the 33x12.5's. really happy with decision.

That is great OKSABELH... How well do your tires ride? I was looking to upgrade to a 17" wheel and tire setup before... But I just stayed with the 15" wheels I have... Maybe next set of tires will be plus sizing to 17"... I'm happy with these tires...

They ride great... there is a lot of good info in this thread on ride quality. staying with 15in saved you money no doubt - 17 rims (half decent ones) ran me about $160 a piece and I went with 5 for matching spare.

Thanks for the info...My next set will be 17" wheels and tires..I just like the look and since I don't air down I don't need the side wall flex of the 15" tires...So far we have almost 1500 miles on the tires and they are handling great...

I just want to point something out...

As it was explained to me, which may or may not be 100% correct. All tires are subject to a Federal Excise Tax. The Tax was created to help new states entering the union build and repair roads. In the North East part of the Country the Excise tax is ridiculously high, in the South West it is very low. So the variations you see in prices can and will be reflected by this tax which to my knowledge has never been repealled.

I love the tires, I only wish they made a 32x11.5R15. They have time as I don't expect to be able to purchase tires until 2010.

P.S. Great rigs !!

Had them on for 2 days and so far they're much quieter on the street then my mt/r's, and in my opinion look much better too!

It was stock at the time, the only rubbing I was having was at full wheel lock, a couple of washer took care of that.

Have you put a lift on since? If so, any pics? I've got the same jeep, planning on these exact tires - but also a 2" OME lift.
