    Cant help you much on durability for the Duratrac's since I just got them myself.

    They are rated as an All Terrain tire though, so they should last longer than a mud terrain.

    Not exactly terrible.

    I had no problems driving around in winter with my STTs. You just gotta adjust how you drive.

    Where in PA are you going to school? Are you strictly buying mud tires for traction in the snow? The snowfalls in my area of PA haven't been anything that would require you to have mud terrains to be able to drive. I have been using General Grabber AT2s on my truck and not had any issues.

    I would go with a good A/T. Duratracs are know for their good winter traction.

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Get the duratracs. You will get good mileage in your lightweight truck as long as you don't burn them off. Or the goodyear MTR's.
