Thanks for the link, I think that talked me into the Coopers.

Re: Destination A/T vs Terra Grapplers

Well it looks as if the Goodyear Duratrac's have been made in the 275/55/20 size that I am looking for. I know this is a tad more aggressive than the other tires I was looking at but I am really starting to like them. Anyone have any experience with them?

Re: Destination A/T vs Terra Grapplers

I run Duratracs on my Ram 1500 and we use them a lot at work in the oil patch. I like them enough that I am seriously considering them for the Jeep before next winter. IMO: they are a worthy tire to consider and have an aggressive look to them without all of the drawbacks usually associated with an aggressive tire. I think they are a great option for those people looking for "One Tire for All Conditions" solution. They have not been impressive in any one particular scenario, but they perform acceptably in all situations I have run them in.

Re: Destination A/T vs Terra Grapplers

You all may want to consider a 285/50/20 for some added rim protection.
I have the Cooper Zeon LTZ's on my 14' with no QL.

Still considering those, since they are closer to stock so you probably don't have to do any leveling or any other lift if you don't want to, plus the speedo and mpg will also be closer to stock.

I am actually considering getting the duratracs or all year and selling the 22s. I kinda like the off road look. How is the ride quality and road noise?

I can only comment on the 275/65r18's but they ride great (to me), and the hum for road noise is not bad at all, I barely notice unless the radio is off.

Love the tires, huge Duratrac fan - took me 5 months just to find them around here, so finally drove to Boulder and picked them up there.

Thanks, I can find them at the local Pomps and they are 250 a piece installed and with tax. I think for the 275/55/20 size its a good deal.

Re: Destination A/T vs Terra Grapplers

Well I decided on the Duratracs and I am in love with them. Just got them today so I didn't have time to install them yet. I am going to plastidip them tomorrow and install them to see how they look. Can't wait for the finished product. Thanks everyone for your input.

Good looking set. Why can't people just make more tires in the stock size??
