Default Pictures request - Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac

I like the look of the new Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, but haven't seen them on a jeep. Anyone running these on their jeep?

they offer it in 275-70-R18, which is a nice option for 33" tire for a stock sahara wheel.

HAHA I was going to post a thread up about these tires this weekend. I have been lucky enough to get a set of these tires for dirt cheap as long as I use them and report back on how they perform. I have them on my wifes 2000 Grand Cherokee with quadratrac II and they are sweet as hell. I have not got a chance to use them in any muddy situations but snow, hardpack ice and highway so far are incredible. they are a little stiff as they are a 10 ply tire but I really like them. This is a tire that is going to give the BFG All Terrain a run for its money.I have always been a BFG supporter and never really liked anything goodyear put out for off-road tires(All MTR guys flame away) but when I saw these tires I had to try them. the noly thing I am worried about is life... these are a pretty soft tire. I will post pics of them on my Cherokee when I get home saturday. They completely changed the look of the Jeep and everyone double takes on the tires when passing by. Very aggrssive sidewall and the outer tread pattern really moves material. I will check again when I get home but I think they are studdable as well. These are a full winter rated all terrain tire.

I really like the looks of these, and will be curious to see how they perform and wear. As of a couple weeks ago the supplies I was looking at were just about to start getting them in stock.

those are the tires I'm ordering tomorrow. 295 70 17's (33x11.5) I like the looks and should be good road tires too.

I priced out a set of 275/70/18's yesterday. Not a bad price really and they look pretty buff for an AT. I am still on the fence however as I have nearly new Duelers on the Sahara and I hate to just chuck them when 95% of my driving is highway.

Rats I hate being frugal.................. I have a set of spidertrax ready to go on with them too.
