What would some one recommend better than duratracs for daily driving in extreme winter conditions? we get -30 lots and tons of snow. Drove my 2 door home from work in a fresh foot of new snow tonight and thought they were flawless. I would sure like some real world thoughts on something better though as Im replacing these soon enough. 40000 on them. 285 17.

If you live in an area that gets those types of temps and a lot of snow, I'd get dedicated snow tires or atleast studded duratracs.

Personally I don't think there's anything out there that's as good as them as an all around tire. But no AT (even with the snow rating) will beat out a true snow tire FYI.
I'm most likely switching to KO2s my next set. I've heard people claim one is better than another but I honestly think they're most likely equal. But i'd like to find out for myself.
Thanks yes I hear ya. For sure studded duratracs would be so amazing when there is ice under fresh snow. its snowing hard right now but only 30deg so wet slushy roads and mine did fine. I even tried to kick it out in 4x4 to see what would happen and couldn't so that was good. I sure like the stability control and traction control its a god sent compared to my old bronco in the snow.!! reason I was asking more so is that i want bigger tires but they have to have the dumb snow flake up hear in the winter and just cant bring myself to buying the {look} of straight up snows. haha My buddy has KO,s and he likes them also. Mine came with these so haven't tried any others yet. There 285,s but want to go up to a 305 and 12 wide at least next time knowing the wider ya go the worse it is on winter roads. But 33 34 or 35 x 12.5 look so much better. :wink2:
