I loved the look of them and wanted them BUT the price of (1) 31X10.50 GY DuraTrac was the same as (1) 32X11.50 BFG. That's the only thing I didn't like about it so I got BFGs

I have them and absolutely love them! I bought when they were still cheaper than the BFGs, otherwise I too might have those instead. They continue to impress me more and more. I really don't even have to have the truck in 4x4 unless I am on ice. I usually use the 4x4 just because I like the feeling of flooring it and going forward with no wheel spin. The other night I was in the woods and found a sweet hill with a bunch of places to climb it with varying steepnesses. There was about a foot of snow and it was the snow that melted and then froze again so it wasn't really that soft. My truck would climb up it no problem. A couple times I thought that there was no way I was going to make it up in one try without getting another run, but I just kept it pegged in 1st gear and slowly but surely it made it up. I couldn't believe that it could do that and neither did my friend riding with me. But my tranny decided it didn't like it and overheated so I had to call it a night.

I like them because they're a good mix of all terrain and mud terrain all in one tire. Aggressive A/T and mild M/T. Plus they're a traction tire, so the DOT recognizes them as a traction device, so that gives it more props. If they made 'em in my size, I'd be interested in actually running them.

And another thing, they are actually really quiet for how aggressive they are.
