This tire came as original equipment on my Xterra. The tread wear is substantial. I believe I could get 75,000 miles out of this set if I want to go that long. I was surprised to find that this tire is considered a "highway" tire because I have taken it off-road in sand, mud, snow and sharp rocks and have never been stuck or had a puncture. I imagine that an all-terrain will make my Xterra even more capable. I plan on replacing them soon with an all terrain tire.

I've got these tires on my LandCruiser (wasn't a pick in the survey) and they're a perfect fit. The most remarkable thing about this tire is that the tread pattern is super-agressive / capable off-road while still remaining shockingly quiet on-road.

I've had MTR's and ProComp's before, and they all made loud "buzzing" noise going down the road (expected for mud tires). These MK2's have equal or better off-road performance while mysteriously remaining quiet on the road. Cool!

I live about 30 miles inland from St. Augustine, Florida so I spend almost every weekend in the summer in sand on the beach or in the coquina flats launching a boat and never have a found issue. I rotated my tires every oil change for the past 5 years and kept a good alignment on the front end. I've been in every hunting club and cypress swamp in our county and been up north joy riding in the snow of the mountains and never have I had an issue with my tires. BFG all terrains are all I have known and they are all I will continue to buy this is by far the best tire for any terrain including the smooth ride they offer on the highway. At 92,000 miles I still have 1/4 tread left on my tires and though they are worn they still pull just as good as the day I bought them. You definitely can't go wrong with these tires and they are more than worth the price!

I guess rugged terrain was not designed for the extreme rated trails.
But this tire proved to be very comfortable on the highway, extremely responsive on the wet. Very good on snow; tough enough to take me to my favorite fishing spots.
Highly recommend

I purchased these tires used from a friend who is a very reputable auto mechanic. I didn't know whether they would be very good to run in the winter as the tread was down to only about 25%. However after going through one of the worst winters here in Wisconsin. I was very surprised how well they performed. I would have preferred more tread but they pulled me through all the deep snow and ice covered roads with no problem at all. I am running into a bit of a problem when running in rutted roads during a rain storm. They want to hydroplane some but there almost down to the wear bars so I mostly attribute it to that. I would certainly highly recommend buying a set of these tires. I suspect I should be able to run them a while longer however am looking at buying a new set. The price for a new set really is fairly affordable compared to other tire brands. Before this set I ran a set of Uniroyal Laredo tires which didn't even make it past 35,000 before they needed to be replaced. With the Bf Goodrich tires I haven't run into any problems with irregular wear due to alignment issues which I struggled with on my last set. Overall I am pleased to say that by picking this tire you will make a good choice for your hard earned dollar. For a more aggressive tire you will be pleased with how quiet they are while running down the road.

Best All-Terrain Tire Choices for 275/55R20 Size

Monday, June 30, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Not too long ago, 20-inch tires were rare, exotic and mostly reserved for high-end European SUVs or show vehicles gracing the cover of automobile magazines. Those that were available were ultra high performance tires, often with little to no all-season traction and wore very quickly. This is not the case today. In fact, 20" tires are an option on many popular trucks, SUVs and domestic and import crossovers. 

Of the 20" sizes that are used, one of the most common is 275/55R20. This size is often used on SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon. Trucks that commonly use this size include the Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F-150 and can even be used with 20" wheels on newer Toyota Tundras. 

A popular misconception is that one can't find more aggressive On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires in this size. This performance category is one of the most effective in snow traction and light off-road capability in a tire that can be used year-round. Many of the best all-terrain tires on the market are available in this size, such as the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar and Michelin LTX A/T 2.   

 Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

 Michelin LTX A/T 2

A/T 2


If you're looking for a more street friendly ride and longer wear, I'd suggest the Michelin LTX A/T 2. It compares quite favorably to a long-time favorite that you can learn about by reading, "BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO vs. Michelin LTX A/T 2." For more aggressive snow and off-road traction, consider the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar as your top choice.

Everyone told me I was making a mistake by getting this tire. They said it would be super noisy but it's just as quiet as any other tire I've had. Handling is pretty good, too. Granted, I'm talking about "handling" on a VW Bus but it's still good. What I love most are the 8 ply sidewalls. Even in strong gusts of wind my vehicle stays planted. Car seems more stable now. I had been using 6 ply sidewall tires and these are far superior.

I've tried many different brands of L/T tires over the years and these are - by far - the best. You will not regret getting this tire if you own a VW Bus and they seem to good I'm sure you'll feel that way on any other type of car.

Have about 65,000 miles on them now and are about at the end of tread life, will probably replace with a new set in the fall. They're a little noisy and the ride is a little hard, but it is a Wrangler after all. Will definitely buy again.

I have had a long-standing policy of not purchasing Goodyear tires. I fell in love with the Duratrac and chose them over the BFG All-Terrains for my truck. Mistake. For about 1000 miles, I really liked them... then the vibration started. At about 70 MPH, the whole cab vibrates -- I mean, if you leave your shades on the dash, they'll vibrate right off. I've checked the tires for abnormal wear, even removing any rocks larger than a pebble (think pencil lead), but still, the vibration persists. Driving in the rain is okay in terms of hydroplaning, but if I am starting from a stop (backing into the driveway, for instance) and it's been raining, I actually have to put the truck in 4WD in order to avoid spinning. Absolute junk. Never again.

I bought these tires based on a friend's advice and on different surveys, rugged terrains have so far exceeded my expectations. They are great on the wet, excellent on light snow, very good on ice.
I go off-roading on the weekends, never had an issue.
I guess some people got mixed between the rugged trails and rugged terrains. launched two years ago;Impossible to buy them five years earlier as some reviewers said.
they were the best all around tires I have ever used, and would highly recommend them.
I would rank them in all weather mild off road category, rather than all Terrain.
in all cases they are much better than the all terrain Yoko's which I replaced and which became obsolete after 15.000 miles.

I bought these to replace a set of mud terrains that had seen better days. I needed something that had a semi-aggressive tread pattern, mild noise, and good wear.
I looked at numerous all terrains and all things considered the Duratracs had everything I wanted.
Recently I got to really test the nature of this tire. I went to a well known off road park in Texas with a group of friends. I was able to put the tires through almost everything except sand that day:
Rocks-very good grip over large ledges and such. I experienced very little tire slip when climbing over rocks all day. I was able to keep pace with others who ran much more aggressive tires
Mud-I took a rare moment and decided to try out some mud. I got over the top of my tires in a water hole and the mud was flying everywhere. I kept on the throttle and I pulled through with little drama. Just judging by the amount of mud that was in the cab of my open top Wrangler, the Duratracs did just fine.
Dirt-of course on dirt they do their job. Zero complaints here.

Most of my driving is on the road, sadly. I have not had anything negative to say about the on road performance of these tires.I am not expecting to hit 50,000 miles with the monthly trips to off road parks that I make. I am willing to accept that because of how they do perform. I'm hoping by the time I need replacements that Goodyear might come out with an even more aggressive all terrain. Until then, happy wheeling.

It's true that these tires can suffer from being out of round. When I first had these mounted and balanced, I got the dreaded hobble. BUT I took them back to my installer and they road forced them, dismounted them, turned them on the wheel, rebalanced them, and they're about as perfect as you can get now. I saw the numbers on the balancer myself because my local shop lets me stand there and watch and talk to them since I've been going there for years as has my entire family.

As long as they hold up I'll be tickled pink. My huge SUV now knows what a straight line is, corners well, grips well, and can almost be driven like a car. These tires are also very quiet, especially for being in the Low Rolling Resistance category. I also picked up a couple highway MPGs over my old All-Terrains, which are still in the shed for winter and fun.

I wanted to get all-terrain tires before winter as the mud terrains I usually drive on were worn and not very good on snow covered roads, not to mention roads that are just damp. The Generals are fantastic! The ride is comfortable, quiet and the steering is accurate and "grippy". They can be trusted on wet roads as well, no drift or hydroplaning. I spent the winter in deep snow and "plowed" roads and these tires never lost grip. I think I have about 3000 miles on them with no noticeable wear. Looking forward to using these tires off-road and I will definitely buy these tires again.

Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

Just moved to Michigan this year from the south... Surprise! Worst winter in 20+ years. I bought these tires as a possible alternative to dedicated winter tires due to the high mileage my car sees. A lot of other reviewers were claiming 70,000+ miles and that sounded great with a tire that could handle winter weather. (they have the mountain/snowflake on the side) I braced myself for a noisy, bumpy ride as the car came with a Michelin touring tire originally. I can honestly say, these tires are quieter and ride almost as smoothly as the Michelin's. That said, the Michelin's were worn when I replaced them so I don't hold the noise against them. These tires have never left me stuck or stranded and I didn't usually spin or slide unless I was trying to. A few times I had to disable the traction control to let them spin and clear. This was only in slow speed situations like cutting fresh tracks in 8+ inches of heavy wet snow. Not sure you can ask anymore for a longer treadlife all-terrain in my opinion. My biggest complaint in the 8,000+ miles I have had them comes from the fact that they tend to "catch" grooves or seams in the highway which can be unnerving when the road is icy. I noticed it the first day I had the tires and now I have gotten more used to it and it is less of an issue but at first it did get my attention. Overall, I would and already have recommend these tires. Not the best winter solution, not the best off-road solution, definitely not the best for mpg's or handling performance. Just a really good mix of life, traction, and so far low noise.
