Wow 22 people have viewed this but not one has responded. Have I touched on a topic that people don't like to talk about? I'm torn between the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R and the Goodyear Wrangler Dura Trac. I've had the BFG All terrains before and they were always good tires but I just thought it might be nice to try something new. I'm just looking for advice.

Hi Gabe,

I bought and like my Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors. Excellent winter traction and fairly quiet too. Probably not as good in gooyey mud as MT's but I'll find out this weekend. I know a lot guys like their BFG's.

Edit: I had the BFG AT's on my Ram 2500 4wd pick up and liked them but I didn't do any off-roading other than a little horse trailer pulling around on grass and a little mud.

2007 XK Limited, 5.7L Hemi, QDII, Rusty's 2" lift, Spidertrax 1.5 inch wheel spacers, GetLost4x4's front hitch mount for portable winch.GY Duratracs 265/70R17s , Rola Roof Rack, diy built spare tire mount for the roof rack.

I probably won't be much help but I'm in the same boat. I'm looking at a lot of the same tires you have listed and I think I've narrowed my choice down to the new Goodyear MTR with Kevlar. I've had the BFG AT's and the original MT and my CJ's and loved them. I also just wanted to try something different so I turned to the new MTR from Goodyear. I've got 3 buddies that have the old MTR on their chevys and jeeps and they all like the way they perform so I'm hoping the new tire will have the same outcome...plus it looks pretty tought!

I think the Duratracs LOOK like a good all 'round tire tread, but when I get new tires the will be the same as I have now.

I am currently running the Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar and they are by far the best all around tire I have ever run.
- They are quiet on the road (slightly louder then stock tires)
- Have great road manners
- Perform amazing in the rain (both stopping and accelerating)
- Clear mud extreemly well do to large voids between lugs
- Great on the sand (air down)
- Great when aired down due to kevlar reinforced side walls

I can keep going on if you want me to. They only bad thing about them is the price. But you get what you pay for when you buy a mud tire.

I have ran both the BF Goodrich All Terrain and Mud Terrain and they were great tires too but dont compare to the Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar. The All Terrains are terrible in the mud and just become slicks.

If you dont plan on doing any hardcore off roading I would go with the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac.

Just my .02

My Mom's Ram 2500 has the BFG Rugged Trail All Terrains and I like them. When it comes time to replace the Forteras, I will go with Cooper Discoverer ATRs. I don't much care for Goodyears.

I agree with wmjacobsjr I have a set of the Discoverer ATRs in the garage that came off my Dodge truck. GREAT tires! The dealer said that they would fit the XK. But alas, they are too big :-(
