    i have had the duratracs and i loved em. Great mileage out of the tread, relatively quit, kicked butt in the snow and offroad too.

    From everyone I know who has Duratrac's, they love them. And everything I've ready about them on TW is all good. I'm throwing my lift on next weekend and would like to get Duratrac's

    people are getting 40k +

    and they come with a warranty. customer service is probably one of the best as well.

    All depends I think. Some people aren't comfortable with retread tires, even though they're more popular than most think, 18 wheelers, commercial airlines, even military. i've been bouncing back and forth between guard dogs and duratracs. I like the look of duratracs more but I love the price of the guard dogs, that's almost $700 I could save to put towards something else.

    this, and they look good, and perform very well. you can get the guard dog M/T on a BFG casing, or since its the MT-R tread, you could get the guard dog on a MT-R casing

    My AT2's just keep impressing more and more....

    I am the 2nd Tacoma owner of these and they keep impressing me in the off-road department....they rid them selves of little rocks before the "cling-cling" noises begin in your fenderwells ;)....shed mud just as easy and the sidewalls flex exactly as I was told....

    On-road they have NOT decreased fuel mileage by any noticeable amount and surprisingly being LT's have not made the ride any stiffer..

    The ONLY up-grade has been BORA wheels spacers BUT that was due to jumping up to 265/75/16 LT's with '09 Tacoma wheels ....
