the duratracs are a softer tire compound and seem to wear faster

Oh and I have 30k on mine and they are A-OK and hoping to get another 20k out of them at this pace...not sure I know anyone running mtr's with 50k on them where I know plenty of people with Duratracs who have.
i notice that friends in ny have way better luck than here. with the heat and high uv index in socal, the highways get super hot and it sometimes sounds like my tires are velcro melting on the 91 or 10 through the desert

maybe the heat helps them wear faster

It's up to you, but it depends on what you'll be driving on. The duratracs are good all season truck tires. The MT/R K's are amazing for everything, I sound biased I know, but as soon as they came out the Jeeping community went nuts. I've been on several runs with other vehicles that were equipped with 35"+ MT/R K's and I've been blown away by their performance.

However, if you've got a pavement queen get the duratracs. They'll have less road noise and I'd guess they would last longer. The MT/R K's are definitely off road tires and good in every type of terrain as long as the vehicle they're attached to can take it.

I've never owned them personally, but I've been behind rigs with them and they never were squirrelly. But like I said, it could all depend on the vehicle using them. One of the offroading mags did a great article about the MT/R K's when they first came out and their test vehicle was a 1st Gen Tacoma. They gave it high ratings.

But, snow conditions really vary so I couldn't say for sure what conditions your friend was in v. what I've seen, you know?
