I just ordered the new Wrangler Duratrac. 295/65 18E. Should have them on Thursday. I too have been running the BFG. Need to sell what I have. Hopefully the Duratrac will do better in snow and mud that a regular AT??? We'll see. Levi

I have been running the Mickey Thompson ATZ's on my truck. They look aggressive yet they are still quiet on the highway. The best part is, 3 yrs and 55k miles later they still have 1/4 thread left before the wear strip shows. I'm guessing Ill get around 65K out before I need to replace them. They have seen a dozen or so launches at the drag strip, the beach almost every weekend in the summer, donuts and burnouts. They handle great in the rain and ok in the snow. The tires are pretty wide so I think thats why there not the best in the snow.
