Here it is. It's offroad.com's video, but it was at Coopers test facility.

I love MT hum =D.

Judging by your first post, it sounds like a nice all-season tire will work fine for you, unless noise isn't really the biggest issue and you want a more aggressive look. In that case, get another noisy set of tires.

Have you considered Toyo or Nitto A/T's as a sort of inbetweener?

I won't buy Toyos, their crap. Wasn't really impressed with Nittos.

Dennis. Thanks for the vid. Looks like it did fine in that video. Pretty normal stuff, easy enough for and tire really, now the wet road and snow performance, that's what J want to know about.

The S/T Maxx is fine in the rain. I'll let you know how they do in the snow sometime next year haha! You will probably have tires by then. The Duratracs have the severe service rating for snow, that sounds like what you are looking for.

whoever isn't getting good mileage out of duratracs must be out doing burnouts or driving their truck like its a corvette around corners

i've read several threads on people getting over 40k out of them and a guy i work with got 48k out of his, i consider that pretty good being that they're a true all terrain leaning hard on the MT side, i rotate mine every 5,000mi seems that rotating them often is the key to mileage

This is true. When I had my 1st gen X I didn't rotate because Idk what in was thinking and I got 30k before the fronts wore terribly. Rotating should be fine, I'd buy them again they were great while they lasted.
I'd rotate the crap out of them this time lol.

Rotation is good, but if your alignment is off the tires still won't last long.

I noticed a truck at work where the inside of the front tires had 1/2 the tread of the outsides. Looks like toe is set wrong, the tires are fairly new, a rotation will just put the same hurt on the other two.

I talked to the owner, I don't know if he's been in for an alignment or not. The thing is, with this much wear differential he's got a built in camber misalignment no matter where the tires get mounted next.
