GoodYear Wrangler Duratrac 275/55/20

hi everyone i have a question about this tire.
I have right now nittoterra grapplers in the same size and i just orders the duratracs today because the look more aggressive to me than any other AT tire. And i want to try them out.

my question comes because i read the following review on a online store.....

------People, there is a difference between a Passenger Goodyear Wrangler tire, and a DuraTrac Tire! One (the DuraTrac) is either an 8ply or a 10ply tire, and the other (Wrangler Passenger Tire) is a 4ply. We are suppose to be rating the DuraTrac's, NOT passenger tires! I am quite certain that Enterprise rental car doesn't have Duratracs on their cars or trucks, so don't bother rating them. We are all aware that passenger tires have like 4ply sidewalls. You can't expect to drive them off road on shale, etc. without puncturing a tire! 4 plys are always cheap tires! All dealerships use them to save money! Get your head out, and read before you comment! Sorry, It's annoying!------

What i want to know is the duratrac that i bought online has 4 or 8 or 10ply???

Does anybody know something about this....

Greetings,

That size could be either a 4 or 8 ply. Based on the Load Range (SL) and Index (113), i think it is closer to a 4 (4-6) ply. The LT tires in a 20" have the 10 ply.

Give GY a call.

Best for now.

Every reference to Duratracs in the size 275-55-20 on Ebay refers to them as 4 ply if that helps.
