Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
September 09, 2012

Pretty good tire.. Bought my jeep with them on. If you have a stone driveway, I'm surprised theres any stones left after these tires go over it.. They need to make the treads either closer or wider apart. Because the way they are, they pick up any and almost every rock. There is no road noise... When there's no stones in the tires. Wet traction, for me at least, is not to good. But then again, I have a Wrangler. It's mud traction is... Alright. Nothing special... Only have 5000 miles on them and about 98% have been on roads..

At 5000 miles into these tires, everything is going well . I drive in town and on the highway- pavement and dirt roads daily. Not the best ice traction, but didn't strand me either. With a 70,000 mile wear warranty and mostly mild weather, I feel good about these tires.

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.

Initial Review, 55,000 Miles on Tires
April 22, 2014

I drive mostly on highway and country roads. We fish on beaches In Riverhead NY, and Cupsogue Bch, NY. The Wrangler tires performed excellent. I did not have to air down. I drive on farm land during the hunting seasons on an upstate farm - tires performed well and needed 4WD only on muddy or snowy situations. I got a bug to replace the Wranglers with "regular road" tires for highway, I went to Michelin. My thinking was I do little miles on the beach and farm, and we don't get many heavy snow storms on Long Island so I went for the Mich. all season tire. Bad idea. The Mich. do OK on the Northfork stony beach but on the fine sand Cupsogue Ocean beach I can bog down in the sand - soup-like spots. With the Wranglers I mushed through the very soft spots. With the Mich. I bog down to dead slow just going nice and slow until the sand gets a little "stiffer". I never had to air down with the Wranglers. If I air downed with the Mich, it would be better but I am getting lazy. The Mich. on the slightest mud are terrible on the farm. The slightest amount of mud, the threads fill and the truck slips terribly. Sometimes I have to go to 4WD low. In snow (farm) the Mich. are barely acceptable, if I didn't have 4WD I would get stuck for sure. O.K., I understand the Wrangler and Mich. have different tread designs. I didn't think the travel in sand, a little bit of mud or a little snow on the farm would bring my truck to a stop. I knew I would pay a price for the all season highway tread, I didn't know how big of a price. It was a bad move on my part. The Mich are a very good highway tires but not a combination (the all season) tire no matter how few miles I travel on the sand and farm to meet my needs. When I have to retire the truck I'm going back to the Wranglers. (Comment, over the past 50 years of driving on beaches and farms in all kinds of 4WD from Jeeps to pickups, the 4runner is my favorite, it is a billy goat that never breaks down.)

WOW... WOW... 1 more...WOW !!! Just got them yesterday (33/12.5/15's/Kevlar) & they have passed every test w/flying colors... Replaced the "Old-Tread" w/the new "Kevlar" & could not be happyer, We could hardly hear them at all @ 75 mph on the Hwy ... Had a "Monsoon" in the afternoon & went for a "Test-Ripp"... Great over standing water on road... Than we went to the local wash & my 98 GRAND CHEROKEE (ZJ) 5.2 AWD/Auto has never went up that stuff as easy before... They "Dig" & "Float" over the softest sand... Than we headed for the MUD...WOW !!! I thought the old MT/Rs did good, @ 20 lbs, but the "New Tread" @ 36 lbs is WAY BETTER... I hardly hit the skinny-pedal & they were "Flinging" & they track fantaitic, No "Drift" in 6 to 12++ inches of "Sloppy Mud" (That same mud filled the old tread to the point of no control & my JEEP would go where it wanted) We had total control... I would guess with the "Extra Tread" down the center of the tire these will last about 3X longer or more than the old tread... We have 1 more test left for today, "Aired Down" on the "Rocks" (Witch is where we spend most of our WHEELIN time) & if they handle the rocks like the old tread I know I will be very pleased... (I will up-date when we get back if I can) As acting VP. of the local Off-Road club, I will tell everyone I know that these are "The Ones" to buy if they are in need of "New Shoes" for ANY of thier rig's...WOW !!!

Bought these tyres about 4 years ago and loved every minute. With close to 55000 miles on them and approx another 15000 to go i HIGHLY recommend the H727's. Grip is good across the range and considering they are all season tyres, they are outstanding in snowy conditions! Definitely one of the best performing tyres i have ever owned on ANY vehicle.

Initial Review, 2,500 Miles on Tires
March 09, 2014

I've only driven 2,500 miles on these tires so far, but wanted to enter a review early and then revisit towards the end of tread life. During these 2,500 miles I've driven in several 2-3" snow events as well as a good foot of the white stuff. Absolutely amazing traction. The Michelin Harmony's these replaced (which had plenty of tread left) had me fearing for my life with any snow at all. I couldn't even climb the smallest of hills with them. The Continentals, however, have me feeling like my Altima is 4X4 Jeep.
I've also had the pleasure of driving in an absolute deluge of rainfall, and did not hydroplane or skid at all. Again, huge improvement from the Harmony's.
Cornering on dry pavement is awesome. Great grip, no squealing or skidding.

Finally, the ride comfort is unreal. They are neither stiff nor spongy. And I can't hear the tires at all at any speed, interstate or back road. Car feels brand new again.
I highly recommend these tires!

I have used General tires on other vehicles. Grabber AT2's on my Tundra. The RT43 was recommended for my wife's Jeep Patriot as an all around excellent tire. So far it's been great. We spent the month of February in the north country where we received snow every couple days. Our driveway is rather steep and just for the heck of it I tried to go up in 2wd on packed snow. The tires gripped amazingly well and never slipped once. She typically uses 4wd in snow, but had to try just to see. So far, very happy with this tire.

I drive on mostly highways and country roads in the mountains. My all season Continentals were getting worn down and I had a few scary episodes with them on steep mountain roads while driving on snow and ice. I decided to try dedicated winter tires for the first time ever and purchased studded General Altimax Arctics for my Jeep. I'm glad I did too, they are the best tires I ever had for winter driving. They really grip the ice and snow especially while braking. Hopefully no more scary experiences on the icy hills for me.

We went from a 4wd Jeep to a 2wd Jetta the day before we got our first big snowfall of the season. Blizzak WS70 tires on my Jetta took me places in snow I would go to only in my Jeep. It gave my wife a level of confidence of driving I have never seen in her before in her 15 years of winter driving. There is a lot of talk about the tire being loud, which I don't find it to be a loud tire. Regardless, if it was or gets loud, it would be the trade off of having superior traction in harsh environments. The tires handle the wet and standing water very well. The steering response is good, but not great. Another trade off for having superior traction when you need it. -you don't buy winter tires for steering response, you buy them for traction in the worst environments. Amazing tire.

When I was looking at new tires everyone was pretty much in agreement that these were 'the' tires to get for a Jeep. And they were right. I have been extremely happy with them. Half of my daily drive is on gravel (roughly 16 miles) and it amazes me how well the tread has held up, as gravel just eats the tread off most tires.

I don't think that there is any additional road noise on the highway than the stock light truck tires my Jeep originally came with, which surprised me since these have a much more aggressive tread.

I'm getting ready to buy a new set for this coming winter and by then I should have close to 45,000 miles on these.

Just put these Firestone Destination LE2's on, replacing the Michelin Latitude Touring tires that came with the Jeep. What an improvement!! With the Latitude's I was slipping and sliding all over the place - couldn't corner at all and even on straightaways I could feel the Jeep swaying and sliding - they felt dangerous! These LE2's are awesome - a night and day difference! We had about 2 inches of snow last night, so I could immediately compare the 2 tires. On the way to the tire store I was sliding all over, on the way back I tried very hard to get them to slip and slide. There was still some slipping and sliding of course (I was pushing these tires to see what the "breakaway" point was) but the difference was clearly noticeable. It's great to feel like I can go around a corner at more than 5 miles an hour, and change lanes on the highway without gripping the wheel with both hands and hoping I didn't end up in a ditch or facing oncoming traffic the wrong way. This Wisconsin winter has been rough but with these tires I'll be able to face what's left of it without feeling like I may die any second. There was no tire noise (same as the Michelin's) and the ride was great, but now I feel safe driving my Jeep!

I've driven 57,000 miles on these tires in just about 3.5 years on my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I didn't notice any significant tread wear. I'm glad I came here to read reviews and tire ratings before purchasing these tires. They are a little noisy, but that's a combination of the tires and the age of my vehicle with the lack of soundproofing in the cab I'm sure. Also, I have them balanced and rotated (free of charge) every 6-8K miles and alignment if necessary as part of the dealer/installation agreement. They are amazing in the snow/ice and rain. Best tires I've had for sure. Hoping to get another 50K out of these tires. Miles on my Jeep, 160K. Excellent Tires, will be buying for my wife's new Jeep Liberty as well.

I purchased these tires toward the end of October and mounted them on the vehicle in the beginning of November. This is my first winter season in a few years without a four wheel drive vehicle and I wanted to ensure that I could get to work and other places safely in our lovely Pennsylvania winter weather! Well, these tires did not disappoint! I have roughly 3k miles on them and I have been in a number of snow scenarios with them this year. Every storm I have felt confident in my vehicles handling thanks to these tires!

I purchased a wheel kit from TireRack that included the wheels and tires already mounted and balanced. They are perfect! I do not have any vibrations whatsoever and the tires are not very noisy on dry pavement. The Fit is an econobox, and if these tires were loud, I would definitely know it. They ride comfortably and handle OK. These tires are not performance tires by any means, but they handle well enough and do not suffer from tread wobble like others I have seen. Where these tires really shine are in snowy conditions! I have more faith in my little FWD car than I did in my AWD Explorer or 4x4 Jeep that I had previously owned. These tires will get you moving and stopped in most situations that I have encountered. The one exception to that would be ice. Even though these tires are studdable, I do not have studs in mine. If I did, I am certain even ice wouldn't be a problem. I did not want the extra road noise from studs.

If you want a good all around winter tire, look no further! I will be purchasing a set of these for my wife's Altima for next winter as well. Also keep in mind, skinny tires go better in the winter than wider tires but you will sacrafice some handling on dry pavement. I would definitely recommend these tires to anyone looking for snow tires!
