    Today is a good day. Just had both headlights replaced under warranty due to lens melt and my new Duratracs are sitting at home waiting on me. Tires will go on Saturday. I will have (5) Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's for sale shortly. (2) of them have less than 5,000 miles on them, (1) of them has about 15,000 on it, and the other (2) have about 30,000 miles on them. Looking for around $400 for all 5. I will not ship.

    they are definitely most overrated tires discussed on here lol
    most people are too cheap to get a dedicated winter set.
    they make them sound like they are god's gift for snow when in reality they are not that great in all snow conditions, specially since different types of regions get different type of snow that could benefit from a dedicated winter tire.
    they like agressive looking thread that can use year round. they don't mention they weigh a ton and have a tendancy to wear faster on the outside of the thread than most AT tires.
    they never mention how they do in the wet like everyone lives in Cali.
    a 1/4 of them i swear they are nitto tires (flames design) buyers since they just get them because the tire has little thread design on the sidewalls.

    Found this on-line:

    The Wrangler DuraTrac is Goodyear's On-/Off-Road Commercial Traction light truck tire developed for the drivers of multipurpose full-sized pickups, vans, sport utility and commercial vehicles looking for tires that play hard and work harder. The Wrangler DuraTrac is designed to be a versatile tire offering off-road competence in dirt, gravel and mud with on-road composure in dry, wet and wintry conditions.
    Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rugged tread compound that helps resist tread block chipping, chunking and tearing, especially during heavy loading and towing applications. Its symmetric tread design combines large shoulders and highly angled center tread blocks to enhance stability and traction in dry and wet conditions. Self-cleaning, stepped shoulder blocks, zigzag sipes and Goodyear's TractiveGroove Technology at the base of the circumferential grooves provide thousands of biting edges to enhance traction in deep mud and snow. Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip throughout the life of the tire and offers a built-in rim protector to help protect wheels from accidental damage on- and off-road.
    Wrangler DuraTrac light truck tires are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol to identify they meet industry severe snow service standards. Wrangler DuraTrac tires are designed to accept optional #16 metal studs to enhance ice traction

    Too cheap to get a dedicated winter set?
    With the duratrac's you dont need a dedicated winter set.
    I had no problems last winter at all, or may-be you think buffalo doesnt get alot of snow?

    If you get the E-rated tire, they are alittle more heavy because they have more plys of the steel belts for more protection or if you have heavy trucks.
    the C-rated tires weigh about the same as any other AT tire.

    I have had no problems in the rain, or mud, or on the highway.

    If they are wearing on the outsides, you need more air.

    And im sure everyone knows they are buying Duratracs and not Nitto's:)

    Their reputation speaks for themselves. I guess with as many people swearing by them on here that we must ALL be stupid and not know what a good tire is. Maybe I can get a set of DEDICATED tires someday. LOL

    ya i dont think they are that great in winter. they are terrible on ice compared to a set of real winter tires. especially when they dont salt the roads here.
