ya i thought the dura tracs were really good on rocks because they were super soft but they didnt last very long. and i have heard that the bfg a/t once wet wont grip any thing

Before I had to part out my Jeep, I had dura tracs on them.. At 1 point I had bfg a/ts... Both were same size and hands down the dura tracs were better... at the park i was at where these pics were taken, was very soupy deep mud, it had rained for like a week straight..

then I busted a stub shaft while at the park and had to get out in just 2wd with a front tire that kept locking up, and the dura tracs did not let me down. they got me back out through the mud and onto the trailer..




So I say Dura tracs for the win..

I got them through Pomp's Tire, i don't know if they do or not... best to call around to your local tire places and see who has the best price mounted and balanced per tire, which was 220 for me, but i have a commercial account with them so it was a lot cheaper... so far, i have walked through what Wrangler Authority's have struggled accomplish, very good so far
