Our 08 Sahara needs new shoes. A local Wrangler owner is selling his Moabs/Duratracs for a great price(set of 5) w/6k on them.

We got 48k out of the BS Duelers, do you think we can get 40k out of the Goodyears?

This is my wife's Jeep so noisy tires are not gonna settle well with her. How noisy will the Goodyears be?

Not noisy, great wet and dry on-road traction, surprisingly good off-road traction, and (FTW) the best looking tread pattern of any A/T!
I've had mine about 6K miles.

I can get the tires/wheels for $650, is that a good deal? I don't think I can get new tires that are descent for that cheap.

I forgot to add that these tires/wheels are off of a '10 Rubi Unlimited

If you don't buy those I'm gonna drive down to VA and cockpunch you.
That's about half what I paid for my tires.

Oh damn, great price. Absolutely go get those immediately. From what I hear they're quality tires with a nice aggressive looking tread pattern, but also have great road manners.

I love mine. Very quiet, good on road and in the snow, and have been very happy with them offroad as well.

I have about 1500 miles on my 35" Duratracs and am real happy with them. A shade louder than my BFG A/T but actually handle better on the road than the BFG. My wife drives it a lot also and she did not say anything after the switch so I take that as good news. I do more snow wheeling than anything so we will see but I figure they will do much better than the BFG's.

They are suppose to offer great traction but I have not seen anyone get 40K out of them yet. The price kind of depends on size. If stock size I would try to get them down a little since they are used if they are 33's or bigger that is a great price.
If the 650 includes rims then stock that would be a fair price.

I have 4k miles on mine, just rotated them yesterday and compared to the spare, they have no signs of wear, rotated the spare into the mix. They are awesome tires especially for the price and if you are getting the tires and wheels for $650 go for it! that is an awesome price. I paid a total of $1600 for my 5 Duratracs in 32x10.5 (load range C), the 5 procomp 7069's, installation, alignment and tax.

they have a very slight hum but as soon as you turn on the radio the hum cannot be heard at all. I upgraded from the stock all season 29" good years so for me the improvement is drastic. I now have a ton more control off road in the woods/trails/mud/hills and they are great on the soft sandy beaches when aired down.

Duratracs are supposed to be one of the best tires for winter driving and I am looking forward to seeing how they do.

Besides all that, they look great too...very aggressive with the side-biters tread on the sidewalls.

Good luck!

I've got about about 22,000 miles on mine and they look to have between 1/3-1/2 tread depth remaining, and that's with putting the spare into rotation. No complaints whatsoever, and if anything they're too quiet, I can't hear them at all.

I think I am pulling the trigger on some duratracs or Fierce tires. With a DD I do not want to go through tires every 20k. Would love to see 35k before getting some new tires.

I got mine towards the end of and have about 6,000 miles on them. Can't even tell yet. Mine are 275/70R18s. They give enough hum on the road so you think you have a larger tire, but not still not loud. I have had them @ Rausch 2 times not and they performed very well.

As for the price, I would hope by tomorrow you have them installed or one of us will try to steal your deal.

Mine have 35k miles on them and still look new. They wear evenly with regular rotations. They perform to my satisfaction in snow, rain, and dry. Clean well in mud and grip well. They have a perfect on road sound in my opinion, while still being able to have a conversation at highway speeds. I plan on getting at least 75k miles out of these tires. Buy them, you will not be dissappointed!

Agree with everything said above. I have 33's with 10k. No problems, performs in the mud, snow, rain, and pavement great for my needs. Looks aggressive too (for a A/T).
