BFG Ko's vs. Duratracs

Hey guys I know that this question has been asked but I have an 07 6.0 F350 FX4. I do not have a leveling kit but I was told buy a guy that had them that 305 65 18 BFG's would still fit with FX4 package. I have had this tire on all my trucks in various sizes and I am between that and the Goodyear DuraTracs in 295 65 18. If you have either please tell me how they are and how they fit. Post pics! Thanks!!

They are both a great tire. The BFG is going to last you longer.

I think they will fit. I had 285 75s on my unleveled truck and i think they are the same height as 305s, just not as wide. The BFG site will tell you the exact specs. now that said. I love my BFGs IMO they way out perform any goodyear I have ever tried.

Who ever says the KO's out performs a duratrac clearly has no experience with both. I do however and the BFG's were great, but they were terribly soft and always caugh rocks from my bluestone driveway, pebble on the street, and of course NAILS... I wasnt impressed overall with the tires.

The duratrac blows the BFG out of the water in every aspect, end of story. If you properly rotate your tires and keep pressure in check they will both last as long no doubt about it.

If you go in the mud, do highway driving, live in snowy areas etc the duratrac cannot be beat. I have duratracs on my plow truck and with a plow on the front and a sander on the back, it cut through 2 feet of snow like it wasnt there. (285/75/16)

Ill be putting duratracs on my F350 in 295/65/18 this week

the 285/75's on my plow truck

Yeah I'm going with the DuraTracs in 295/65/18s. I can't turn down the price difference. They look great. I work for my county and they put them on a lot of the trucks which gave me the idea. I'll post pics.
