Well i had enough with my junk dunlops. and my senior pics are coming up so i might as well have good tires to:icon_ford: so after untold amounts of research, i decided on duratracs :woot:.

Went to Goodyear they wanted $1300 and some change for 265/75/16's:doh:

At a small tire-shop where we usually buy all our tires. $925.02 mounted, balanced, new valve stems :woot:

So do some price checking before you buy tires!!!

Ive got almost 300 miles on them since yesterday.

Ride- honestly ride better then my Dunlops. im running 65lbs in the duratracs.

Noise- not real noticeable over the truck.. you have to really listen for it. if it was on a 6.4 or 6.7 you would be able to hear them.

Wear- only got 300 miles, so ill have to check back. hopefully more then the 18k i got out of the dunlops:doh:

They honestly didn't balance that great. a lot of weights.
love them so far!!


no rims


had to take the gasser:hehe:


out with the old in with the new



only pic i have so far

I have the same (325/60/20). I can't wait to get them back on for winter. I got too much wear as soon as the weather warmed up so I took them off for the summer. I put about 15k on them and really didn't have any noticeable wear until the last 5k before they were removed at the end of April. I did have a bit of a balancing thing with them at first but it resolved. Very nice tire.

Glad you made a smart decision haha. I love them. I have almost 10k on mine and still look brand new. Its been so dry this summer that in 10k miles, they have yet to see mud so I hope they perform as well there as they do on road.

Holy thread revival...at any rate, I have them in 325/60/20 and they're A LOT better than the Toyo MTs and the Nitto Trail Grapplers I used to have.

At the price of diesel you have to have a good job to be paying for all that. Unless the driving is for your job then that's another story.

I get great mileage with them. When I went on a 3k mile trip to Florida I got best of 21.5 mpg. I average 18- 20. If I'm not towing. They don't get any worse mileage then my BFG at's, or Dunlop radial rovers at. That I had prior. And they are quiet. They have gotten noisier with 30 k but still really quiet.

i was wondering what size lift you have on your truck? i'm shopping for tires on my '09 and wondered if this size (325/60/20) will fit nicely on the stock rims and 2.5 leveling kit wihtout too much rubbing? thanks in advance.

These tires have 63k miles on them. Now granted, I drive 1k miles a week and don't tow all that often. But I am very impressed with them.

Also, I have not rotated them near as much as I should have. These things have been damn near bullet proof.
