dura trac's or terra grapplers?

Hello, was all set to order some goodyear duratrac's for my gen 2 but the helpfull tire salesman told me to avoid the duratracs. Claimed they had had issues with them. Anyone else have any issues?
I have been running the nitto tera grapplers and have been pretty happy but wanted to try a mt. Ok quick edit, I should include the bfg ko's to the list
Anyone want to help push me either way?
Thanks

1 vote for Goodyear Duratrac's. Way more aggressive looking than the Terra Grapplers imo. I've had mine on for about 10-11 months now and they have been holding up good. They will hum a little more than the Nitto's.

I have the Nitto TGs right now and they are a very durable tire. I'm going on 50+k miles and they got a good amount left.

The only thing is I've grown to dislike the look. The duratracs look way meaner

Ya I don't think I'm going to get that kind of mileage out of my Duratracs, but I knew that ahead of time. The Mickey Thompson atz looked good too but are pricey as well.

I paid 820 installed for my 285/70/17 duratracs

Doubtful. Maybe with mud's. I thave Nitto TC's and like them. I dont know about 50k+ miles (I went through a set in 40) but they're nice. They are a little softer so they hook up good offroad. Not very loud on the highway either.

That is weird. I will ask my Discount guy to see what he says about them but I hear they are good from others on the Forum.

Yeah I have read they are pretty good tires, may not go as long as a at but I do not expect that. Could there be any truth to the mpg?

Only 10,000 miles?!?!? This better not be true. I've seen a few F-250s and Silverados around here running these. I hope... really HOPE those are the guys burning through them. I need to get at least 40 out of these things.

Edit: They are a HUGE improvement over my stock tires and if they last I will definitely buy another set.

I have had my Duratracs on for about 5k. I am extremely happy with these tires and will be buying the same when these are spanked. Highly recommend...on trails they have completely transformed my trucks capability.

Ya I have 10-11k miles on mine and they look great! I've rotated them twice so far and I'm sort of a lead foot at times so they were well worth the money.
