I have had them for 1-1/2 years. Still look good even with the rocks I run on. Not as blocky as the BFGs. I am thinking they will go 60k. Mine do not have tread wear guarantee. They do not have the ply count that the BFGs have but they seem to be just as tough.

trust me they ride much better and are quietr. Discount mistakenly put a set of MTRs on mine when I had specified the Duratracs. I could have kept the MTRs and would have on one of my Ford 4x4s. They were a little stout for my Prerunner.

That's about where I run um. I tried going up to 40psi as some have suggested but I don't like the ride and the wear that way.

suprisingly, my duratracs (265/70/17 load range: c) make more road noise than my destination m/t (285/75/16 load range: e). which even caught me off guard cause i was expecting my m/ts to make noise, but no, its super quiet, like a street tire LOL. not to say that the duratracs are loud, you only have that slight hum while coming to a stop and initial acceleration. not loud or overbearing by any means.

I did a little a trip and this is what I came up with...

They worked great in Nebraska snow/ice

Straight through Wyoming red mud/dirt

High elevations of Wyoming

Handled the salt flats of Utah
Goodyear Wrangler DURATRAC's-imageuploadedbytapatalk1366473004.042268.jpg

Death Valley sand and rocks. Had to cross two small sand dunes because I took one of those "this could be a road" roads
Goodyear Wrangler DURATRAC's-imageuploadedbytapatalk1366473135.760109.jpg

And last night I went through a bit of Yogi on my way to Breckenridge. Overall they were great and throughout the trip I was getting 18-19 mpg. Aside from the stretch between Salt Lake City and Wendover (Bonneville Salt Flats) where I got 13 due to high head winds and from St George Nevada to Torrey Utah where I got 20 due to a tail wind.

265/70/17, unless you can get a pair of .5" wheel spacers, you could run 285/70/17 with minor trimming

I have the 265/70/17 on my stock height Tacoma TRD Sport. They fit great no rubbing or anything. The only problem I've had was driving through Nebraska when Walda was rolling through. I picked up a lot of slush that froze and the tires didn't want to turn. Just had to pursued the ice to leave with a crowbar and hammer. Worked like a charm afterwards.

If you are implying to run bigger tires with 5" BS, you will hit the UCAs with the tires, hence why I said .5" wheel spacers.

Alright so what I've got is that I can run 265/70/17 no problem but if I was to bump up to the 285/70/17 I would need a .5" spacer so that I don't hit the upper control arm and I'd need to trim. Is that right or can I run the 285's with no spacer and still have to trim also if I did run the .5 spacer would t the tire stick out of the wheel well? Appreciate the help guys

with, the 5" bs wheel, I would assume you would need to run wheel spacers of at least .5" to run the 285's. but you will need to trim with the 285's, not with the 265's

I finally got them! I love these tires! I also got the 36 month road hazard protection with them since it was only $28 each tire.

An inch doesn't sound like much, but it makes a noticeable difference for sure.

Thanks guys. I get a very light rub at full lock on the little hump on the front mud flaps.
Glad I didn't jump right into 285s!

I just used a sharp box cutter and trimmed some of it back; now no rubbing.

I got some 265 75 16 in Feb and ran them home 60 miles to get home through 5" of unplowed snow in the N GA mountains with no problems at all. Great traction even throught the steep grades. 3000 miles later, they are still quiet (for an aggressive AT) and balanced out great. So far, I would buy a 2nd set if I get some mileage out of them.
