Will need new sneaks before the snow flies this year but I plowed a LOT of snow last year with 45,000 mile Duratracs. Just great tires...
They have been holding up great. Really liking the Hercs. I got them back in February and they haven't seen snow yet. Not sure how they are going to do but I was planning on siping them if need be. Being from NH I don't know if this would be the best choice of tire, pretty much all MTs sick in the snow.

Thanks for the info...definitely won't be able to go with a mud terrain with how I use my truck. I WISH I was in mud more! Was just looking to see if your initial thought was "these are great" or "I miss my Duratracs". I really can't figure out why I'd go with another tire. Maybe to save a few $$$ but I'm sure I'd regret it quickly with either tire noise, uneven wear, or the first time I got stuck. The Duratracs have just been amazing.

I've never had that regret moment with the Hercs. Do I miss my Duratacs? We will see when the snow flies. We don't really get that much here otherwise I would have opted for the Duratacs again, awesome snow tire.

I've run both! Duratracs are a much better snow and ice tire! not that the BFG's are a bad snow tire, the Duratrac's are just better!

Are you guys buying the C or E rating? I spent the extra bucks and got E. I have 30,000+ miles on them (cross country and back plus other trips north and south of NY). The lip on the edge of the treads are still there. 10/32 left on the tires. Legit!

I told myself I'd lift it once the tires were worn out. Guess I will be waiting awhile

I'm running E's. got almost 40,000 on my first set. I'm at just over 10,000 on my second set. I'm rotating 5 this time around. I could've gotten another 5,000 or so out of the last set, but snow was on the way and I didn't want to stretch them out on snowy roads!

I really want a set of these tires...I think they look awesome. However, I live in Texas and only see snow once or twice every other year. Would I be wasting my money on these tires? The only off roading I do is in the sand at the beach. So I would mainly just be buying these tires cause of they way they look...

I'm in the same situation as you, but I still love my tires! I drive in soft sand without airing down. I'm sure it would be even better aired down, but i'm too lazy

With my new front bumper, I can see even more of my tire!

First set were 285/70 17's on stock Sport wheels with 1.25" spacers. Second set is the same size tire on 17x9 wheels with 4.5" backspace, no spacers. I do wish I had gone with an 8" wheel instead to cut back on the amount of rubbing I get!

It took me about 20 min to read what you said cause your sig was distracting me . Yeah, makes sense...I like them too much to not get them.
