"Goodyear Duratracs"

Hit Discount today and checked out the BFG at and Goodyear Duratrac. Can get either for the same price and both are in stock, kinda leaning for the Duratracs, anyone running them got good or bad to say?


When they came for the road hunters I was not one so I said nothing. When they came for the oppurtunists I was not one so I said nothing. When they came for the public land hunters I was not one so I said nothing. When they came for me there was no one left to say anything!

The Duratracs sure get a lot of good/great reviews. I just put a set on my new 4Runner Trail about a week ago - never been much on Goodyear prior so was leery about these.

But after reading the 4Runner forums, the Tundra forums and seveval other off road sites I went for it. So far after only a week I like them - great on road not really any road noise and they ride at least as nice as the POS tires the 4Runner came with.

The cost a little less than others also, not sure about how they will be off-road but if the other guys running them are right I should be fine. I can tell you more in a month when I am in Wyoming how they do.

I think I might give them a whirl too. I have never had goodyears. I had Coopers on but had a tread seperation(tire exploded) and tore up the truck so I want to get a quality tire. I thought I was going to go with the BFG AT but saw these, talked to some folks and read probably a lot of what you did, I just don't EVER want to have a tire go bad(I had the quad rack, two quads, and a 26' trailer on when it did). The coopers were e rated and had only 15k on them. But when your dropping $900 you just don't want to make a mistake. Thanks for your input.

Put a set of duratrac on my tundra and i so far like them! I have put around 8000 miles, my elk hunt and all my summer scouting and they look new, a lot of dirt roads anywhere from really rocky to sloppy mud no snow yet but i think they will be fine. Only thing i will complain about is they dont clean out very well but i am used to mudder tires and the duratracs kept me on the road. Had a set of bfg on a chevy half ton and they dont last and i was always having flats!

I put a set on my tacoma earlier this year.
I only have around 5000 miles on them but so far they have been nothing shy of great on and off road. Its too early to tell how they will wear.
They do well in moderate mud, great in dry dirt, and have held up very well after many many miles in volcanic rock. They also stick to the pavement in the rain really well.
The only complaint would be in the really nasty mud, but on the other hand they are not a true mud tire either.

Side note- they throw marble sized rocks really hard, after being stuck in the tread. If you have any offset, you will have rock chips and possibly a broken side mirror sooner or later.

I have about a year on them so far on my 78 F250 and love them.

A lot of the oil & gas companies around here are putting them on their fleet vehicles. If you're in Unit 2 deer hunting just look at all the oilfield trucks & you'll see how many are running this tire. These guys are hard on tires and I've heard that they are getting between 60-70k miles out of them. I don't know anyone who's gotten that many miles out of a BFG AT or MT or KM2.

This is the 3rd hunting season I've had mine on my Rubicon. Best tires I've ever owned. I put on a lot of hiway miles also. Off road traction is great. I'm sure these tires have 25,000 miles on them with at least with half the tread left.

Glad this post came back up. Like I said in my first post - I was headed to Wyoming for my annual antelope hunt - which I did do October 6th to the 12th. Well, the 1st 3 days of my hunt it rained like crazy each day, and for all you that know the Wyoming mud - you know its bad nasty stuff.

The Duratracs where awesome in the mud - I never even had to put it in 4 wheel drive - granted I didn't get too crazy so as not to PO the rancher for ripping up his roads, but they did do really great on some of the oil well roads.
Plus the 1100 mile one way drive went great, really good tires you will be pleased.

I had a set of BFG's on my duramax. After roughly 2 years and 32K miles I had to replace them.
