Default Need a new set of 35" E rated tires (17" rim)

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

They dont offer an E rated for a 17" rim! 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.

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.
