Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Off Road Tire

The new Wrangler DuraTrac from Goodyear walks the line between a heavy-duty truck tire and an aggressive off-road tire meant for some rough terrain. It's a tire made for work trucks and tow vehicles that have to have maximum traction during bad seasons, but we won't be surprised to see some smaller off-road toys running this tire too since it has a fairly aggressive tread pattern and a seemingly flexible sidewall-especially for an HD tire.

We tried out (and are still testing) a set of 35-inch DuraTracs on an F-250 Super Duty that not only has to get out to the toys and jobsites, but also has to tow trailers and haul campers.

Unfortunately, it was May in Southern California and about 90 degrees outside the week we were testing these. Needless to say, mud and snow was just not an option for testing in at this time.
