What are using them for?
Daily driver?
A little off road (packed trails)?
Off road mud?
Off road sand?

Ran the BFG AT's and now the Dura's.
For all on road conditions the AT's are better. IMO
But they throw gravel at the truck!
The Dura's are better as soon as you go off highway. IMO
A little louder on road but not much (you have to be picky to notice).
The Dura's aren't as good on ice (but not a problem for you). IMO
Hope this helps!

I just picked up Duratracs this weekend. So far they are pretty good. They do hum a tad but there is less road noise. At first they were squirley with 35psi but I dropped the PSI from 35 to stock and they are better. A chalk test shows that they are ok but I will be doing more testing this weekend. I had BFG ATs on my Ranger and they were great on and offroad.

I chose BFG A/T, since those are the only tires I've had experience with except for the Rugged Fails, Hankook ATs and the new Falken tires.

Honestly, I absolutely love the BFG A/Ts, they have been flawless for me. I had BFGs on my diesel 4x4 work truck as well as my Tacoma, and for both applications they've done flawlessly. On both the diesel and my taco, I've never had a problem with punctures, and the nails that did go through never resulted in any lost air. For towing, the BFGs were amazing, and their offroad traction in sandy areas is great, but I will admit they suck in mud, and can be a biiiiiiiiiiit squirrely in really wet conditions, but only if you're driving improperly.

On my Taco, I've used the BFGs for my 80mile round trip from my house to my university and back daily, and so far I have 70k on my tires and tread to go another 20k. This is not hyperbole, my tires have been very healthy with only a few rotations, some balancing and one alignment.

also semi tire carcasses are made way tougher than passenger/LT tire carcasses. I too would not trust a retreaded tire on our trucks.

I couldn't be happier with my Hankook A/Ts....they're great in the desert terrain, they don't dig at all!

(I know this doesn't really pertain to you, I was just saying )
