kaesong, What is the load idea of your tires? From what I found on the web it is 1,200 lbs each? Total weight 4,800? Seems low.

I can't fault the GY Duratrac's that we had. They worked great until their wear induced noise over-powered a 12 valve Cummins. I replaced them with Yoko A/T-S II's, which have done everything the GY DT's did and are wearing better and with less noise. Noticed the other day that even though there is a lot of tread depth remaining that the wear bars are getting close. I think that I'll repeat these tires.

Happy with the Coopers so far but not enough miles on them to be really sure.

The Goodyear Duratracs seem very popular with the oilfield services folks that run up and down graded gravel road all day long.  I've heard that compared to other brands, they are the best for this kind of usage.

Vic, Interesting that you would say that. I bought them based on input from a friend who was a Ford Service Tech in Farmington and those oil patch guys all ran the snot out of the D-T's there too. Now he's up at a Ford dealership in South Dakota and seeing the same thing with the oil patch guys there too.

I wouldn't buy Good Year tires if they were the only ones on the planet. I worked for that sorry company for 22 years.

Toyo Open Country's all day every day here.

I like my cooper at3 load range E. At 32k miles they have slightly more than half tread left. Noisy on highway but I suspect any E range tire is relatively noisier.
