Trail grappler to duratrac

Had to send my trail grappler back because of the rubber tearing chunks out of the treads and the treads cracking after 2000 miles apparently they do not like the heat of Mississippi. They were good riding tires a little louder than I had expected. So I switched to Goodyear duratrac after doing a lot of research. I ended up going back to the stock size of 275/65/20 I am very impressed with the duratrac tires. They are very quiet and a reasonably aggressive looking tire for an at. I have not had any of the squirmy issues that I have read about on some reviews. I filled them up 70 in front and 75 in back.I might air down a little after I get a couple of miles on them. Just thought I would give some feed back. Also one of the vendors dtd made me a customer for life with their excellent customer service.

I am a Goodyear salesman and I have sold a TON of duratracs. I run a 275/70r18 on my rout truck(duramax) and I tow a heavy. I got 47000 out of my first set, Awesome winter and mud traction and great on the road too.

good to hear, i ordered a set of 325/60r20 dura tracs about a month ago with a set of 20 black xd hoss wheels, I'm waiting on the wheels they're on back order, but I am glad to hear a good review. I see a lot of not so great reviews on other good year tires that I kinda took a gamble on ordering the dura tracs!

my 285/75/16's were 185 a piece thats pretty nice!

i love them. they pack up in the real sticky stuff which i somehow always manage to find LOL. snow is awesome. you cant even tell theres snow on the road. and noise is really quiet. lock the hubs and go for another ride over 60, and itll vibrate a bit.
