I went online to buy five Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs today and....

They dont offer an E rated for a 17" rim! :eek: That was months wasted researching tires to say the least. They do make an E for a 16"....

Who makes a 35"+ mud terrain that is good on ice? (I was going to stud the Durtracs). The Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain are what I have now. I have probably 70,000 on them and only blew out two sidewalls. Nothing to complain about other than the weight (and maybe the crap Erlick gave me for running them :))

35x???x17 E

Coming in hot!!!!

I believe I have ruled the Intercos because of how thin the sidewalls are

Spoke to a dude from Wisconsin, that knows a few things about Land Cruisers, and he told me stories of how bad his Goodyear Wrangler MTs were in the snow/ice.

Siped BFG KM2? Would prefer an tire that is engineered instead of cutting up a good tire but, maybe that is just me.

If you think UB gave you grief about the toyos you don't want km2s!

Nitto Trail Grapplers?

I wouldn't call them great on ice though. I won't get 70k out of them either, but they are wearing well. Lighter than the Toyos too. I did cut one sidewall, but it didn't slice all the way through and still held air. Discount Tire replaced it under their warranty.

Mickey Baja MTZ? They're load range D, but I've heard good things, haven't tried them myself.

Oxymoron. At least IMNSHO.. and experience which has me back to thinking it's one or the other.

I have a set of studded duratrac's. Not much else out there in 35" for winter use. I'm happy with them for that purpose.

My MTZs were good in deep snow, but not on ice.

I struggled with finding a set of E ratd tires for my old dodge tow rig with 17in wheels. Hancook makes the Dynapro ATM that is E rated, but they can be hard to balance some times. They work very well in the snow.

I am impressed with the Duratracs in the snow. The sidewalls are stupid soft though. If Goodyear offered the E rating in a 17", it might be the perfect tire.

I had them balanced today and they only needed 26 wheel weights per tire.

The "E" rated sidewalks are no stiffer on my 16's. Still paper thin.

was nice to get to watch yours work in the snew last weekend! we'll be getting a set of these for our truck and suv soon. Discount tire in broomfield quoted us a price quite lower than you paid... but these are 16's for us, and part of the good deal was bringing in both vehicles at the same time.

I'd second these. I love mine and will be getting 60-65k out of them. They handle snow great and I've never cut a sidewall even when running 10-12psi.

The next truck will be getting them in 35s, 35x12.50R17LT E121Q

Definitely check with Discount. I've always had really great interactions with them.

Mine have been wearing very well too. No idea how many mines as they only see the winter season. But half way through winter #4 it looks like a few more to come.
