    I've been watching a guy on youtube, Matts towing and recovery, He has and XJ that he does offroad recoveries with so you can actually see him put his tires to use. He said the duratacs are the best tires has used for his area for snow/mud/sand, and would never buy another brand if he could get them in a 35r15.

    Or you could just get wildpeaks like everyone else.

    Duratrac ftw. I have had a bunch of different AT, MT, all/weather tires. Duratrac is best all around. On road, offroad, snow, mud, etc.

    I may have asked YOU before - a couple of folks have given me their experience with duratracs - but I'm seeking out info (in a hurry now). I need to replace the tires that came on my truck - the good year kevlars). I've got right at 45K now and they are almost done. I drive a LOT (obviously). The stock tires have actually been fine. I like that I get 20-22 MPG avg on my daily commute to the office (around 120 round trip). I also have a horse farm, on a river so I am in the mud quite often. The only thing that keeps me from going with the duratacs is the comments about balancing, hit on gas mileage and uneven wear. I would appreciate if you - or anyone with actual experience could chime in.

    I run two sets of duratracs, I have a studded set of on my oem wheels for winter. Both set balanced perfect. They are great in the snow and mud.

    Duratracs FTW. No experience with the other brand, but I'm on my third set (50k miles each set) Running E loads now, no issues with the said sidewall weaknesses in any of the sets. Running 265/75/16s

    I've had my set of ATX's for about 20k miles now on two different third gens and I don't really like them anymore. While they aren't crazy loud on the highway, they do make kind of a rhythmic noise that I can hear most of the time and gets to be kind of annoying. I might have gotten a bad set or something but they also seem to be somewhat difficult to balance properly and I get some vibrations at highway speeds that the stock kevlars didn't have. Probably going to be switching them out soon even though they have plenty of life left.

    I think the duratrac is a better all round tire, I've watched a guy slice open two on the same day so I dunno how tough they are.
