    265-70-17 Goodyear Duratracs. Pro Comp 17x8 8089's. Bilstein 5100's front and rear (front set to 1.75). 1/4 inch spacer--driver side. TSB rear leaf springs. WeatherTech floor liners. EGR in-channel vent visors. RDS tool box.
    Please give me the pros and cons of each. I'm about to make a purchase and I'm down to these two. I primarily drive pavement, but also spend some time wondering around in the woods of North Florida. And, I must admit, how they effect the look of my truck is going to be a huge factor in deciding which I choose. Any info, especially from experience, will be greatly appreciated.

    Bolt there are literally 4 threads on this topic. But to give you the best answer, Nitto's for more of on road use. Duratrac's for more off road use. All depends on what your going to be doing more of. They are both that good of a tire! If your doing more highway than offroad I would go with the nitto's

    The duratracs are more of an aggressive all terrain were as the trail grappler is a true mud terrain. The duratracs will probably wear a little better since their tread pattern is a little closer together. Both will affect gas mileage.
