Noisy Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs, 275/55-20? (10,000 miles now)

I'm looking to hear from Duratrac owners who've had their tires for a few miles. Are they noisy? Noisier than when new? Quieter?

I've had my Duratracs on my JGC for 10,000 miles, and is it me or are the tires getting noticeably noisier as they wear? The howl / hum from the tires is getting pretty noticeable. I wish I took sound readings when they were new, as a baseline for comparison.

Any other Duratrac owners with experience as your tires wear, are they noisier or about the same? Or, even, quieter?

I haven't noticed mine getting any noisier and I'm at about the same mileage usage, but they haven't gotten quieter either.
Doesn't really help you, but it is feedback.

Multiple reviews online say they get louder as they wear. Most A/T or M/T will get louder as they wear. I have them and they have gotten louder, but not to the point that I regret having them

Re: Noisy Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs, 275/55-20? (10,000 miles now)

I have about 15000 on mine, yes they get nosier. It has been my experience all All Terrains get louder with wear.
It does help to rotate them.
This is my first set of Duratracs,I think they are quieter than my past BFG ATKO's, earlier generation.
However I think I like the BFG's road manners better...

Re: Noisy Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs, 275/55-20? (10,000 miles now)

With duratracs you HAVE to rotate them every 10,000 km , not sure what that is in miles. If you don't rotate them they get a cupping on them that makes them very noisy.The set I had on my work truck I got 110,000 KM out of them , again not sure of the miles but the tire shop said I could have gotten another 10-15k out of them.

This was on my work truck which gets a LOT of miles on it every day. Right now I am trying new tires very similar to the duratracs but with some benefits. The ones I have on now are 10 ply instead of 7 plys , have triple ply sidewall instead of double wall , has better lugs on outer side of tire and a bead to help protect the rim.They are also 100 cheaper per tire. Had them on for 20,000 km so far , they are quiet untill about 80 miles an hour roughly 120 km , then you can hear the hum.They ride very smooth , even smoother than the stock michelins that came on the truck did.

They are through Kal Tire , called Muteki Trail Hogs and if they last me close to 100k I will stick with them.

I have duratrac's on my Ram and have not noticed them getting any louder than when I put them on. I will say that they are unquestionably the best AT tire I have ever put on a vehicle. Well behaved on the road, great in snow/mud, and very capable off road.

Rotation of this tire is very important every 4-5k and they will last a long time. My friend has them on his truck and is very happy with them.

Re: Noisy Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs, 275/55-20? (10,000 miles now)

I've gone 10K miles without a rotation. I will rotate, and then keep rotating every 5K. Thanks for all the inputs.

Oh crap I now realize I'd gone 15K without a rotation, not 10K - 15K in 4 months, I did a 7K road trip to Texas.

Tire rotation this weekend!

Tire rotation completed, and the tires are much quieter now. Thanks to all for the tip to rotate them!

I've had at least 5 sets on various vehicles but not my GC. They definitely get louder and I rotated mine every 3K miles.
