    Who's had both and which do you recommend. I really like both and the more I look at the Duratrac the more I like it. Price is essentially the same.

    What say you?

    I have the BFGoodrich All-Terrains T/A KOs and have no complaints thus far. They perform nicely off-road and on-road. Another thing to note is that they are pretty quiet on the streets. As far as the Duratracs go, I can't say anything about them because I've never had them.

    I just ordered the Duratracs, but the more I look at them, the more they are starting to look really ugly to me. I know they are just tires, and if they work really good then who cares. But, there is just something kinda weird looking about the Duratrac. Almost like they belong on a work truck or something. In any case, I might send mine back. I've been thinking about the KM2's, Nitto Grapplers, or the Hankook Rf03 Mt's. I would suggest to you the Hankooks. They are technically a mud terrain, but are suppose to be very quiet and have good road manners.

    i agree. i just went in there to price out tires and i guess the km2's are have issues and a lot of people are exchanging then out for the goodyear wranglers. BFG over rated!!

    I've had a couple sets of BFG AT's and they have been very good to me. However the Duratracs look very interesting and I'll probably try them out next time around.

    Iv had The BFGs and they were awsome. I have the wranglers now and i dont think they perform as well off road. a little quieter on the street though.

    I ran the BFG All-Terrains on my 95 Taco and had no complaints about them. I wanted to buy something different this time and decided on the Duratrac's. I like them just as much as the BFG's. Both are good tires and have great traction.
