I remember when I bought mine, goodyear had like a 60 or 80 dollar rebate on 4, The special comes and goes, though. Duratracs are good tires, especial on road and when its wet. I see that you were asking about the mtr's, and the duratrac cannot compare to that. The sidewalls are thin 2 ply polyester, vs the 3 ply Kevlar of the mtr's. I don't know how much that matters to you, though. Goodyear also came out with a new version of the silent armors, with a Kevlar 3 ply sidewall, if you want to look into that.
The duratrac rubber I've had has cuts, chips, and small chunks missing, but its not too bad. Also, I've never had a sidewall puncture. They last about 20K on my f350 at 70psi. They are pretty quiet in the beginning, and get noticeable louder, but not irritatingly loud.
I'd say if you don't need a MT, its a great all around tire, and the lighter weight vs a MT will give better mileage. If gas mileage matters, get the C rated one, not the E. Hope that helps!
