DURUN Terrain Grabber M/Ts (My Thoughts)

So I needed tires. My BFGs were done, so I searched and searched. Finally I found the Durun Terrain Grabber M/Ts. Then I found West Kentucky Customs. They had the best price. I ordered them up, and within a week, they were at my door! I was so excited I had to go get them mounted up.

My first thoughts were, ok these feel softer than the BFGs, but good. Then, as I was talking to my wife I was like, Wait! These tires are a lot Quieter than the BFGs. After I got them mounted I had about a 40 mile ride back to my house. The whole was I loved it! Quieter, Softer, more Comfortable tire, at HALF THE PRICE! How can you go wrong with that?

As I'm writing this I've only put about 40-50 miles on these tires, so these are my first impressions I'm going to use this thread as a log for these tires and Ill come back with updates every 1000 or so miles talking about the wear and handling and all that. Also, I'll post up pics tomorrow!

Softer tires wear faster.

I'd never heard of these before so I did a quick Google search. They are Chinese made and by the tread pattern appear to be a knock off of the Toyo's. So far they are only available in a 35/12.50/20, but they are cheap. Price I saw was $289

Just an estimate, but I have about 10k miles on them and I love them. No real visible wear. Still quite. I give them a A+ ... and they look good too.. for the price you cant beat them.
