    Looks good, you will like them. I have off brand DuraTracs and thought they were great last winter.

    Nice looking set up, the tires and rims are sharp and help tie the hole truck together. I also like white trucks

    I'm not usually a fan of the new HD towing mirrors on the obs trucks but with those wheels and tires yours pulls the look off nicely!

    Thanks for the comments!

    I couldn't update the pictures in the original post so here's some new one's taken with a better camera and after cleaning the blue off the tires.

    You should have just left the other pictures that weren't as clear. The new pictures are to clear. That truck has the perfect look and I'm jealous.

    You will love those tires pushing snow. I have the same ones on my Cummins. They get traction like nothing I have ever used in the snow. Even being a real aggressive tread, they still do great on ice and hardpack. They are not too noisy, either.

    Yes these are my first DuraTrac's. I put about 40 miles on today and can't believe how quiet they are. Almost no noise at all, even cornering, which is very surprising for such an aggressive tread. Went about 5 miles on the highway at around 55 and they didn't even hum.

    Echo what Kevlars siad.....they are great on snow. I've used them for two winters now for plowing, and also put them on another truck that I don't really use much for plowing. They've only spun on me once, and that was when I was trying to clear off about two inches of heavy ice/slush after a Nor'easter going uphill with my V in scoop mode after already making it up about 200 feet. Can't blame the tire for that one though.

    I ended up with them because Cooper didn't make the Discoverer M&S in 18" (at the time, at least), and I came across the Duratracs. I'm glad that I did, and won't go back to anything else.
