    Hello all-
    After reading through the forum, I am down to selecting either Revo 2 or DuraTrac tires to replace my stocks. For those of you that have either I have some questions:

    1- Tread life?
    2- Road noise?
    3- Overal driving

    I drive mostly street and some offroad during summer months on camping trips, I tow and haul things. I have a 3" lift, 265/70/16 on now.

    thanks alll

    Had my Duratracs for about 2000 miles now. I love em so far. Can't say anything about tread life. I do hear a little more road noise than I had with my Kumhos, but that's to be expected. Great in mud so far, and tried em out in the snow today and was pretty impressed.

    Those of us who are currently running the Duratracs are over here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/wheels-tires/74843-goodyear-wrangler-duratracs.html

    I've had mine on for just over 2 months and 3000 miles and the biggest pro/con are...con - hard to balance, pro - excellent in snow/ice.

    They've handled every road and weather condition that I've thrown at them so far and I've been impressed...mud, snow, ice and everything in between.

    Road noise is not that bad, I do notice a hum around 25 - 35 mph but its next to nothing at highway speeds

    Can't speak for longevity yet

    those are 2 pretty different tires. revos are a less agressive a/t, and the duratracs are the most aggressive a/ts you can buy. depends on your needs

    I have 265/75/16s duratracs. They look awesome and dont really hear any road noise. Im guessing they are hard to balance because I did have vibes at 35-40mph then I took it back and had them rebalanced. Now the vibe starts at 30-35 but its not as bad as before. Oh well.

    Great feedback thanks everyone! I suspect I will go with the Revo's although the DuraTracs look better I just can't seem to justify the added expense and the warranty of the Revo's tread is too good to pass up.
