    Looking to put a new set of tires on my 2008 f 350. Any suggestions would help. Nothing to aggressive.

    I love my goodyear duratracs. Awesome traction and they have lasted me 2X longer than my general grabber at2 did.

    I love my Duratracs on my second set. the first set got 32000 on them and could have gone longer but needed better traction for snow

    duratracs are ok. i have a few customers running them. I own a shop and am in the middle of gravel road tire he11. sharp limestone rock that eats tires alive.

    so far, for mildly aggressive tires like duratracs I've found yokohama geolander a/t's to be #1 on durability and long life and number two is the cooper discoverer a/t3 tires. both do great in the snow. great off road, and wear like iron on gravel roads. and street noise isnt noticable. neither is gas mileage.

    i put 50k on the yokohamas on a 2000 chevy 3/4 ton and they still had some life left when i sold the truck. now on my 04 dodge diesel i have 35k on the cooper at3 tires they are looking good. i sell a lot of both.

    X2 on the Cooper AT3's. Had a set on my wife's Hummer and were great in the snow and mud. Quiet and not too aggressive. I have Goodyear Silent Armor's on my plow truck and couldn't be happier. Like driving on dry pavement even in the worst snow storms.

    We run them on our 3/4 tons @ work in a 245/75R16 E. I dont have anything good to say about their rain and snow performance, nor do any of our drivers. They do ride nice, tow stable, and wear like iron. I used to love the old Steeltex AT that the Transforce AT replaced. I was P!ssed:mad: when Firestone quit making it.

    I had a set of Michelin LTX AT2 on my 3/4 ton GMC for 4 years. They wore very well, got over 50k miles out of them. Incredibly quiet on the highway, great ride, but I was not impressed with winter traction. Just swapped them out this fall for General Grabber AT2s. Definitely louder on the highway, although not obnoxious. Too early to see how they handle the snow.

    I like Good Year Wrangler Duratracs. But, if they are to aggressive then I would go with Firestone Transforce.

    I was wondering the same thing. That new open country AT2 tread looks similar to the Cooper AT3 to me. Lots of siping.Thumbs Up
