Duratracs, Trail Grapplers, or Toyo's?

I'm torn between the Goodyear Duratracs, Nitto Trail Grapplers, and Toyo MT's. If you had the option which one would you buy? Tire size will be 305/55r20 or 33x12.50r20.

Goodyear Duratracs


Nitto Trail Grapplers


Toyo MT's

well i went with the trail grapplers....just cause i really like nitto tires, and i thought they looked tuff....If u gonna do a lot of highway driving i would look into the duratracs....they are prolly gonna do the best on highway....and i didnt do the toyos, because it seemed like every lifted truck had them.....and i just wanted something a little different

Dura trac.....I just got them. 325/60/20. I've used them in all conditions and extremes. I do drive a lot of highway as well. I am very happy with them. I don't like loud tires btw.

Like said previously, if you do a lot of on road driving, I'd go with the duratracs. I actually purchased a set this weekend and got them installed today. that look incredible and drive so smooth. I'll post pictures up tomorrow. You can barely tell you are on an aggressive tire when going down the road and so far they handled great. More miles will tell though. My neighbor has the Nitto Trail Grappler's and his are wearing terribly on the road and ride rougher.

I have owned nitto AT and they wore extremely fast, but I do 90% of my driving on highway or paved roads. You may want to look into some Mickey thomspons atz, I had a set on my 05' f-250 and loved them...they worked well off road, didnt hum on pavement at highway speeds, didnt wear down like my swampers did, which only lasted about 20,000 miles, and they looked awesome. I would purchase a set for my 08' if Mickey Thompson made them in a factory 275/65/20, but they dont, so I will most likely go with the toyo's as I have heard good things about them as well...just my 2 cents

As far as im concerned the Duratrac simply cannot be beat. They stock like quiet, unstoppable in the snow, good in the mud, look awesome, and are reasonably priced.

Our plow truck has them in 285/75/16 and flys through over a foot of snow no problem with a sander on the back and plow hanging

Toyo mt`s are some really good tires. I ran a set of 37x13.50r17`s and got 56,000 miles out of them, never had a single problem out of them. they are costly! I would try the trial graplers they look like a really good tire also. toyo owns nitto.

Duratracs through Discount Tire are the best deal. I live in a ski area, and they go through anything. Very quiet on the highway as well, and they look good too.
