They are not snow/ice tires. Have had them on 3 trucks and they are the best wearing-towing tire I've had.

You're right coot, they're not a snow and ice tire but they are an A/T tire. I thought the wet traction was horrible. Although i will give you this, they did wear pretty well. I got about 50k out of them.

I have the Duratrac's load range E too. Great tire for winter or mud and work well on my 4x2. I towed the TT home from the dealer a couple months ago and they did good. Try again for the shake down cruise this weekend.
I have about 4K on mine so far. They are a noisy tire and hum pretty loud but nothing another notch up from the radio can't fix. The shop just balanced and rotated them due to a vibration. The manager said the rears were cupping already and is going to have them replaced through Goodyear if they get worse.
Nice looking tire though.

I have the rugged terrains. They really stiffened up my ride for towing which makes towing more comfortable. I like them alot. I got them right after they became available and have had no troubles whatsoever in the last 2 years 40000 miles. They are wearing evenly and I have a lot of tread left.

Yikes 350000, I hope to as well

Mine have not cupped at all, and I run about 32 f and 34 rear for my pressures in my Tundra. Depending on the weight of your vehicle, the pressure is what will cause these to cup so I have been told. Try to not run to high of pressure in them except when towing.

My brother actually says Michicilan is the way to go for a 10 ply 20 inch for towing.

That tire came on my last F150. I got 70,000 miles out of them!

Worthless in my opinion but to each their own.

Not a big fan either. Came with the package on my Tundra. I am at 31,000 with an average of 2/32nds remaining tread. The Goodyear's arrived at the shop today and changing out tomorrow. Hoping they look ok. Pretty much the only E rated which would fit on the truck outside of Nitto's which I understand do not have a good tread life.
