My Duratracs have been wearing great. I have 4 winters on them and for me that's probably 40K. But I have sidewall cuts from parallel parking in town.:roll eyes: No flats yet though. I should get one maybe two more winters out of them. And I'll have no problem buying another set for winter use.

If I were just going skiing and to the mall, there's no question I'd keep running the Duratracs.. hands down best I-70 tire I've ever run. Not so good in sharp rocks.

I agree Tim, couldn't you keep them for just that and have a 2nd set of wheels/tires for summer/wheeling?

i had to trade the three good ones back, those paid for one of the new Nittos. I don't think i want the project of swapping either, just too much hassle imo over here in the city

Crazy that you can just push the sidewall in like that with three fingers. must be pretty thin...

They are crazy thin. Like 3-4mm from memory. It's been a while since mine got mounted. But it's definitely the most flexible sidewall I've ever felt on a tire. Including passenger car tires. It's literally like a downhill MTB tire.

I think I've personally seen two sidewall cuts this year on Dave Kaiser's 80 alone

I think you made a good choice Tim, i have been running the Nitto Tera Grapplers for 3 years, and they have been great.. there was a worn out set on the 80 when i bought it (I believe Christo put them on), so i went with them again when it was time for new ones..
