I am loving these tires so far, its been less than 200 miles so far though. I also was worried about the whole tracking and driving feel to them, I couldn't be happier! I have the 315x70x17 which are D rated but carry a 3195 lb load rating, they are spec'ed for 50 lbs of air but I am only running 45. I am 60/40 off road vs on and I have no issues with the tracking at all. They balanced out pretty well, one tire needed 5 oz weight, but I had them "static balanced" whatever that means in mechanic speak. The other 3 were under 2 oz weight so it was just that one tire. As you can see from the pictures I am dealing with a ton of snow and ice, these things grab like the dickens! Places where I would have had to chain at least two of the last tires I have gone through with out even thinking I was slipping. I am out in fields, I havent gotten to the point of getting stuck, but then again I didnt get stuck with the last tires either I know the limits of what and where I can go. For an example I was coming down one of the hills from my house to the main road, the ice was starting to warm up so there was a nice sheen of water on the top. As most of us know, the Florida boys might not, but water over ice is about as slick as it gets... These Duratracs marched on like it wasn't an issue, til I hit the brakes then it got fun... Thankfully the Tow/Haul switch is right there and I just used the engine instead of the service brakes, keeping everything in line and out of the ditch.
I have driven BFG AT's, Toyo MT's, Goodyear SilentArmors, Michelin's, and some cheapo knockoff tires (not all on this truck) and these Duratracs are by far the best I have ever driven on. They grab, they stick, they are predictable, relatively quiet, and everyone comments on them (mostly good, though I do work with one Libtard/Greenie that can't figure out why I have a diesel let alone a diesel with big tires guess what she drives... Starts with a "P"). I have no problems recommending these tires to anyone at all.
As for the measurements I will get those tomorrow for you.
