Well I'm going down the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac path too.

Completely unplanned as my Cooper ST tyres started to delaminate on a recent trip.

To get me home bought two new Duratracs and by the time I got home the 3rd Cooper had started to delaminate.
Another two Duratracs next month.

Duratracs were very good in the wet on the way home and very quiet.

Cheers

Justin

Does anyone have any reviews of these in soft sand conditions? In the reviews I've read everybody raves about them in every other condition but have found it hard to find much info of them in the sand.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers.

They would probably be fine in the sand with 15psi. I have run my MTZs in sand no problem, and they have a more open and agressive tread than the Duratrac.

I found they bagged out really well for sand when I had them on my hilux, which would be much lighter than the patrol though.

Yeah the old trol's got a bit of weight to her, what pressure were you running them at on your lux while on the sand mate?

18psi, it was fairly hard packed wet sand where I was driving, but I reckon it's easier to not get bogged than a sand recovery

Default Duratrac's again

Time for a new set of tyres and have had a great run out of the last set of Duratrac's so going for the same again tomorrow

Happy with the price as well with change out of $1500.00 for 5 X 235/85R16 which is cheaper than when i go the last set a few years ago

Just had a search back Duratrac 235/85R16 on 16 x 6 and the last set went on at 185,000 klms and she now has done 252,000 klms so that is 67,000 klms with probably another 5,000 left in them if i was desperate which is a vast improvement on the 40,000 klm i used to get out of the road grippers and split rims i i used to use

Also back in 2013 it looks like I paid $330 each so happy with the current price

Regards Don

I am very keen on getting some duratracs, only thing that puts me off is a lot of old reviews saying that the sidewalls are commonly punctured. Are you guys running E rated tyres and do they have a 3 ply sidewall? Apparently the E rated tyres had a 3 ply sidewall and then they changed it to 2 ply. Duratracs have been around a while it would be interesting to know what goodyear are currently doing with them sidewall wise. Can anyone comfirm?

Hi Dirty

The set that just went on mine are E rated and the sidewall is shown as 2 ply polyester

Not sure what the last set were but i know they were the same 120/116Q rating and i have never had a sidewall puncture

Duratrac is more likely to be my option for a tire set. It has enhanced dirt and mud traction and reduces road noise. I read customer reviews from 4WheelOnline and it seem like they’re elated with their purchase.

Have you worn out your Bridgestone or you're just replacing it with Duratracs?

Bridgestones 5 years old and lumpy causing shakes at 80. New tyres on and no shakes. Tyres were on it when i bought it so unsure of whether they were rotated properly.
