duratrac vs authority

I am about to pull the plug and get new tires.I was gonna buy the goodyear duratracs,until I was at wally world and saw the goodyear authority.They look close to the duratracs and you can get them in a E load range.The price is $150. cheaper for all four.Does anyone have any experience with these tires.I do like the price compared to the duratracs.The first pic is the duratrac.

The only problem with goodyear tires from wally is that they are not built to the specs that goodyear uses on there tires. Wally has there own standards that they use on contract with goodyear, thats why tires might look the same only to have a different name.Goodyear will not stand behind these tires for warrenty issues, so you will have to deal with wally on issues however if you feel comfortable with them that is all that matters.

one more thing to consider if you plan on going through mud is that the duratracs are going to clean out better over the wally authority's

I would spend a little extra and get the Duratracs. CHP here in the mountains have studded Duratracs and love them.
