What did you do with your (new) stock tires?

Absolutely. I had them on a 4Runner and absolutely loved them. They handled flawlessly in the snow but then again that’s a different vehicle than these trucks
Speaking of quoting myself- just found a set of these on Facebook a power wagon owner had taken off to put on taller tires. I got them with 12,000 miles on them for $350. I couldn’t say no at that price. I have had pretty good luck with these so I will get them put on and see how they go.
Now if I can just find some power wagon wheels here in Oregon to put them on that would be splendid

Good deal. They should have 3/4 life left and you got them for 1/4 of the price when new.
Agreed. They retail for around $1500 around here so I was pretty excited and had to leave pretty quickly to go get them before someone else did

Just bought a set of New duratracs from a Goodyear store for $935 installed out the door.

If your paying 1500 I will sell you a set for 1250 all day long.

I just had a factory ordered 2016 Bighorn & i went to Discount Tire with those new tires. They traded me up to new Michelins.

I figured being as the OEMs were something that i was going to get rid of & i was going to get brand new Michelins
I could not go wrong

Not bad! How many miles did you get on your stock Duratracs? Thx

25k I just put the third set on at 50k
Got even less mileage on my OEM Duratrac tires due to our minimum 6/32" traction law tread depth versus 2/32" in dry conditions. Best to trade them in and get a tire that last longer for a heavier 3/4 ton truck. I run Duratrac tires on our 1/2 ton 4x4 and Toyo C/T's on our Power Wagon. Both sets will exceed 50K miles this year.20220902_121956.jpg

Back in Germany you have to have at least 6mm (or roughly 8/32") thread left to be road-safe. Which actually makes sense in regard to hydroplaning.
