BFG km2s or GY Duratracs

im sure this has already been discussed alot. and i have already done a lot of research on the forum of the two diff tires. My 1st gen is my DD so it seeing alot of pavement but i do offroad during hunting season and go muddin once in awhile. im trying to decide what will be best for me. i want something that is very off road dependable when i need it. but i also want a tires that has longtivity. does anyone have experiance with one or both. thanks. the km2 and duratrac look great but its a hard decision

KM2's they are really quiet for a M/T and will last longer than most M/T's on the market.

Based on how my KM2's look to be wearing after 3k miles, I'd probably recommend the Duratracs for a mostly street driven rig. The KM2's do kick ass offroad though!!

Not very many people have had enough time to go through a set of duratrac's. They just came out so the info on longetivity is unknown to me. Mine don't show hardly any wear after 2k mi. They are great off road btw

Not Km2s or DCS but the Nitto Trail Grappler is really quiet for a mud terrain and does great on the road and offroad. Took it in some real soft sand and I couldnt get stuck if I wanted to. About 10k on mine and they still look brand new.

ive seen where one guy had driven about 30,000 miles and he said he had about half tread. best i guess it all depends on the driver also

i LOVE mine (BFG's MT KM2's)

For me it was between the BFG's and Toyo Open Country MT's.

I dont know anything about the GY Duratracs.

Got my km2's rotated yesterday at just under 3000 miles and measured the tread with my digital caliper. All 4 showed 2-2.5 /32 of wear which equates to about 12-15% of the usable tread gone in just 5weeks. I really hope they slow down with wearing or else they're going to be gone in only 25000 miles.

I thinking about getting the duratracs for the same reason and I need them to be good in deep snow and ice. They are a solid looking tire and they are one of the only ones that has siping to help in ice. Plus I think the duratracs look really good too!

you guys are comparing a mud terrain and an all terrain tire. The Duratrac's haven't been around long enough for somebody to burn through them. I will tell you from first hand expirience that I have a customer with over 60k on his KM2's and still has another 5k at least.

60k on KM2's? I'd hate to have an emergency situation where I'd nail the brakes.

does he ever wheel in them or is it just for street. most guys on here say there lucky to get 25k. hearing stuff like 60k confuses with everyone else says. he must baby it every where.

I love my Duratracs. I have a 5-lug and really needed the traction. They don't seem to be wearing very fast but I've only got about 11k on them
