    I'm looking for another one right now, but I was a little spoiled with a Colorado truck and all of the trucks I am looking at just seem like rust buckets.

    The tires look great. I have been thinking about putting the same tires on my Chevy.

    I put duratracs on my 250 and toyo open country A/T on my 350 to see which ones worked better and the duratracs have slightly more traction however the toyo's are holding up to the miles better.

    Thats cheap around here they are 1000 installed. Even buying them though my source for semi tires they are 225 each plus mount and balance and stuff. And tire prices are going up 10% the first of Nov.

    Been running a set on my 08 and very pleased with them. I'm just at 35K on them and they're just about down to the wear bars. Planning on running them again and I put a set on my 97 last week, 265/75/16-E, $930.00.

    I had Dura Tracs on my Silverado before I sold it. Awesome tires. Never got stuck with them. Much better than the Bridgestone's I had.

    Sorry for the late response, I've been working my butt off.



    I will. As of now, Im at I about 600 miles. I like that I get the beefy look but I do not hear the annoying whaaaaa as I drive down the road.

    I have a pretty god tire guy right down the road. Normally they are 220 + NY's wonderful 8.75% tax. So paying cash, I got them for 208 ea.

    That's what I've read on several tire threads on here. I figure that if they make my life a little easier in the Western New York snow, they are worth the money to me.

    Actually, not bad. I had firestones on it first. They were a much less aggressive tire. I haven't noticed too much of a difference yet. I will let you know more once I have filled up ten times or so.

    Sounds good, I appreicate it. I cant really believe what i hear because all the reviews on these tires are based on 5000 lb vehicles, we have 3 maybe even 4 thousand pounds on them so i like hearing from diesel guys about tires.

    You guys studding the duratrac's? I thought they looked like a very good versatile tire. I found a set of the bfg commercial tractions on craigslist lightly used though so at about half the cost..I went for used in a stock size. Interested to see how the truck does with them, I'm not going to studd.

    They look sharp.

    I have duratac's on my s10 and I am not very impressed at all. They do not hold a candle to the bfg all terrains I had on it before. They do work great in mud, but in snow and ice and even rain they suck balls....

    You're NUTS!! And, yes, I have both Duratracs and AT KO's. The Duratracs have better traction and are quieter. I would have the Duratracs over KO's anyday.]

    I have had the BFG AT's, not on this truck but on others. I like them, but I do not like the noise they put off. As I posted earlier, These don't have that waaaa sound going down the road. I like that about them. All I want to hear is my turbo diesel whistling!
