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.
