    Hey all,
    I would first like give props to everyone on this forum for the awesome insight. This is my first post, but longtime lurker. I wanted to put up some pics of my newly installed tires to give back a little to this forum since it has given me great advice.
    I just had my Goodyear Duratracs installed this week. Sorry for the pics, but best I could do with the weather.
    Here's why I chose these tires over the others:
    I had purchased this truck brand new. I paid it off pretty quick, then realized how crappy it performed in the snow. We typically get a few good snow storms, but I didn't go with a 4x4 due to my spontaneous purchase habits. However, I did talk the dealership down to $21500, MSRP of $27,500, so I had to take it.
    The BF Rugged Fails were terrible in any snow or rain conditions. I did like how they looked though. After 42,000 miles, I decided my next tires were going to not only look good, but perform outstanding in all conditions.
    So, here we are almost 4 years later...
    Overall, I am very pleased with the tires (and of course, the truck!) They are not loud at all. I do feel a slight vibration at 55 to 65mph, but reading some of the posts, hopefully that will subside soon. Rotation will help as well. They do not rub. I went with white letters out since my wheels are black, and I liked the look before.
    It was a tough decision with several great tire choices out there. If you decide to go with these, I am pretty certain you will be happy.
    Cheers!

    Thanks, Norton!
    BTW, this thread probably fits better as a reply in a larger thread. I may move it later, but for now, thanks for the insight!

    Looks great with the white letters out on the black wheels.

    Paid $890 including taxes. Rotation and balance free for lifetime of the tire. Keep in mind tires are up anywhere from 25-35% from a few months ago. I got a slight discount buying from a wholesaler that I know locally. Pricey but worth it. Rebates will knock it down even more.
