Photos of Duratrac 315/75/16 and Cooper Discoverer 35x12.5x15

My truck project currently being built by Brewie212 got new shoes yesterday. For Rhodes who ever were curious, here's are some side by side shots of the tires. The Duratacs are mounted on silver powder coated used boosts which really brought them back to life.

You'll pass everything on the highway except the filling stations.

That would be true except the 300tdi is pretty fuel efficient.

Those look really nice! I've heard good things about the Duratracs and was close to getting them myself instead of the MTR/K's.

Matt - what gearing are you running? Forgot if you had 4.1's in the axles or not.

Zack - do you have these on one of the Discos?

FWIW, if you wheel the duratracs be mindful of the sidewalls. Have seen them cut easily on several rigs

I remember reading that when searching for 35's. Iirc the Duratracs weren't much worse than bfg km2's but it's been a while so could be wrong.

We just did Nitto terra grapplers in 315/75/16. They look and go great but as much as I don't like wheel spacers they're almost a necessity when running the stock alloys and this big of a tire. Turned like the queen Mary especially in tight parking lots without them.
