A Goodyear Wrangler Tire For Serious Trucks

The new Wrangler DuraTrac from Goodyear walks the line between a heavy-duty truck tire and an aggressive, off-road tire meant for some rough terrain. It's made for work trucks and tow vehicles that require maximum traction during bad seasons, but we won't be surprised to see some smaller off-road toys running this tire, too, since it has a fairly aggressive tread pattern and a seemingly flexible sidewall—especially for an HD tire.
Photo 2/8   |   The Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac is a heavy-duty tire made for a truck that has to work for a living, but the DuraTrac offers a more aggressive tread pattern than other tires in its class. Notice the multiple siping slits on the tread lugs that help it maintain traction in wet and icy conditions. The outer tread lugs are also pinned so metal studs can be inserted for the best traction in winter conditions.
We tried out (and are still testing) a set of 35-inch DuraTracs on an F-250 Super Duty that not only has to get out to the job sites but also has to tow trailers and haul campers.
