Good Year Duratracs

5 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac Tires

Is $1225.00 a good price for brand new Goodyear Duratracs? 285/70/R17 (33's?)

Thanks for the advice..

I bought 5 33x12.50-15's and 5 ProComp Style 98 black steel wheels for $1065 at 4WP. That was including mounting, balancing, and all new splined lug nuts.

BTW - the picture in that ad is not a Duratrac

I got a quote from 4wd.com here in Nashville, TN all 5 Goodyear Duratracs 285/70R17 for $1022.
I have the paper quote to prove it. Thats not including install or tax though.

The best is to wait for a sale and then "haggle" with the retailer for a discount for buying 5 (assuming you need a matching spare per opening statement).

I found best prices at Tire Rack, but 4 Wheel Parts and America's Best will match the published/written rate.

I was quoted the same exact price for BF Goodrich KM2 and Duratracs and I'm probably going Duratrac for tread wear and snow performance.

you asked about the 285/70/17's and no it isn't a bad price if you get the certificates for free replacement or repair (they can only patch twice then they replace at discount tire).

Pretty close to average for that tire.

If you want to save money go with the 285/75/16's or even cheaper 33 x 12.5 x 15's.

You cant compare these tires with three different rim sizes their like apples and oranges.

the bigger the rim size the more expensive the tire. Not as many choices in sizes with the bigger rims although that is changing a bit.

15" rim is a great size for 33's. The ProComp style 98's have 3.75" backspace so they won't hit the calipers. Look at MyBuild link in my sig for pictures.

Not to highjack but I wanted to see if anyone else is bother/stumped by this.
The BFG KM2 285/70R17 and the goodyear Duratracs 285/70R17 are right at the same price, however the KM2 is a way stronger tire for off-roading(plys and construction). I personally really like the duratracs, and was JUST ABOUT to buy(Still haven't bought anything yet) but then realized I was spending the same amount of money for All-terrains, is anyone else bothered by this. Perhaps its just me.

Not bothered by it, looking at the same set of tires, I just put a 2.5" lift on to make clearence for them and am debating between the 2 as well. Let me know thoughts on both sets. I can get the Duratrac at $275 a tire installed.

I was at Firestone in December to see what all they had.
I stumbled upon their Generic Brand they make called "Lemans Pathmaker A/T"
I ended up getting them, 4 of them 285/70/16, mounted, balanced, disposal fees, TMPS transferred, Tax, ...all for $287 out the door! (They had a deal going, buy three, get one free)...

Here is a shot of the tread. It's (I believe) 15/32...i've had them now for two months and have driven in a LOT of snow and they work great. Not loud...
and they are siped.

Just something else to look at possibly. Anyone that wants a nice tire at a low price...

287 total or 287 a tire? seems weird that the Duratrac would be $275 a tire and the ones you have you can get 4 of them for less then that. let me know please.

Well right now I can get 285/70R17 Duratracs all 5 for $1022, however the KM2 are right pass that price, and I am severly torn between the two. IF the BFG KM2 were way more, OR the Duratracs were way less, then this wouldn't be issue. However since they are so different but yet price the same, then I am really just...welll... stuck I guess.

I suppose My swaying could be done hearing from someone who had the orginal kms on a jk who top the doors and tops(on the highway), and also did some off roading with them. Then i could get a fair side by side comparison.
When peole say for instance they had them on their F150, or tundra or whatever and blah blah blah. That is not a good comparison.
