Got some new tires on my 07 work truck.

With 42,500 miles on my Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors I started to get some weird looking issues on the sidewalls......so my tire shop pro rated the tires (I still had 8-9/32" of tread left) and I went with the new 325/65R18 Goodyear DuraTrac.
Needed a little more aggressive tire which is why I went with this, surprisingly they are very quiet.
Just had to pull back my inner fender liner and I was good to go without any rubbing issues.

Here's a few pics:




And some pics with the new tires showing the OUO traction bars:

Yep, these are close to a 35/13R18.

With a leveling kit they should fit depending on the width and back space of the wheels they are on.

I wanted to try the new MT/R with Kevlar as our sales manager just put the 38s on his Jeep and loves them. But they didn't have a size that I liked.
And as my truck is often loaded weighing in at 10,000-11,400lbs I wasn't sure how well they would wear.

For my 18s I would have done the 285/75R18 which is 35.1" tall and rated at 4080lbs per tire.

Didn't like the idea of stepping down to a 285 from a 325....and I don't think I'd get the mileage out of them that I would the DuraTrac.
I put 42,500 miles on my old tires in 27 months....and it doesn't get driven much for 3.5 months of the year :D

My 325s work well for driving on a beach, through the grass etc. at job sites without making ruts.

Our sales manager with the 38s says they are quiet.


Have a set of 42s test fit on a tech/fabricator's truck as well that normally runs 40" Toyo MTs. He says they are quieter and smoother than the Toyos.

Nice looking tires but I hope you have air bags in the front. The weight from the plow will make them rub with only a leveling kit.
