Another vote for Duratracs from me! Have had mine for about two months and love them. There is a bit of a hum, but not too bad...nothing the stereo of a conversation doesn't overpower.

Mods: 1.5" PRG Front Spacers and Camber Bolts, 265/75/16 Goodyear Duratracs, Weathertech mats and stone/bug deflector, USA-SPEC iPhone adapter, Volant CAI, GPS pod and modified 1390LMT Garmin Nav unit, body color emblems, TB screen fix.

Oh one more thing, the reason I got down to these two tires is that they are two if only a few tires that you DON'T have to get a load range E. Stupid 16" wheels.

For me it was the 3 ply sidewall and it was much cheaper than the duratrac. I read some bad reviews about the duratrac blowing out sidewalls or wearing fast. The S/T Maxx is built on the same carcass as the STT which has awesome reviews. Another plus is that it is made in the USA. I'm not sure where the duratrac is made though...it could be in the USA.

Being only available in load range E might be a con, I thought it was before I bought them; but it's not a con to me after having them on for a while.

Why did you take them off your list?

I cant belive I have to google ( image ) these things just see the diference, let alone try to help someone ... WTF happened to rule no. 1 ???

With out looking them up, but after reading your "mostly commuter... part time weekend warrior" description ... you wont be happy with ANY tire.

So just pic one that you think is a *good* one ( try to not, over think it ) ... atleast go with the cheaper set, that way the fallowing will leave your wallet heavier :

The ones that you like on asphalt will get you "stuck" off-road ... and the ones that you can acually have some fun with, you're gonna hate them ON the road ...

About the only real solution, is to buy another set of wheels and a cordless impact ...

Dennis - what do you dislike about the load rating? I have my reservations but I'll keep them to my self so as to not steer the conversation.

Noob - I'm not a....noob. Nor am I moron. I'm realize that there are compromises to be made but I'm trying to weigh those compromises with the help of other persons experiences.

You mentioned noise being a concern. My Dynapros were quiet when new. But as they wear down, they have gotten LOUD. They have an annoying hum that started when they were about halfway through their useful life. An internet search found a few other reports complaining of the same thing. I know that it's normal for "off road tires" to hum, but these seem unusually noisy considering how mild the tread pattern is.

Having said that, they shine in just about every situation I have put them in, short of deep snow and some mud. If you will be driving in that type of terrain, then Duratracs are obviously the better choice.

I have no real gripes about the Dynapros, but I will be getting Duratracs for my next set of tires.

Well deep snow will be a consideration. And road noise is to be expected, just don't want the buzz of a worn out MT. Thanks Jen. Have you been good about rotating?

I thought it would be an uncomfortable ride. But at 40 psi it's not too bad.

Another thing that sold me on the S/T Maxx was the test videos from Cooper where they drive a Cherokee through water then climb rocks at the end of the "pond" without slipping. I'll try to find it and post it here.
