Goodyear Duratrac are fantastic tyres.
I bought a set of 4 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tyres in size 265/75/16 to suit my 2017 Nissan Navara and very happy with the purchase. The size of the tyres is about 2 up from standard tyre on the Navara . The tyres have a nice aggressive tread design and a little noisier than the standard Toyo Road tyres that came with the Navara and not much different to the BF Goodrich All Terrains they replaced. I have had them for about 4 months now and am so happy with them. They look great, handle really well and so much safer in the wet than the BFG's that were on the car. They grip exceptionally well in the wet, are great in the dry and on dirt - well they just eat it up.
Great all rounders for a serious 4WD.
Bought these tyres and took them straight to Lake Eyre. Very quiet (much quieter than Goodyear MT) on tarmac and handled the tough dirt roads in SA outback with no problems. We did 5000 km in ten days and while they were definitely not in NEW condition when we got back, we had used 10% of their likely life in that time. Would happily recommend them to others with a Defender to carry loads. Limited opportunity to test in wet conditions, but seemed good in the small amount of wet we saw.
Purchased in August 2021 for $280.00.
Goodyear wrangler duratrac
Did a lot of research on these but was still concerned re noise on the tarmac.
Fitted today and very surprised how quiet they are. Couldn’t tell the difference between almost done mild at’s . Quieter than Bridgestone duellers
Purchased in May 2021.
Best on the market!
Best choice I ever made for tyres. Required 18 inch tyres for my STX Navara and the stock ones were crap. Offered others but took advice of shop and bought their best recommendation.
money well spent

Great with 60000km guarantee wear!
Brought these tyres for 4wding and was quite impressed with the way they handled. I was especially happy with how quiet they are on the road. Ive only done 20000km in them so hard to comment on the wearing time. However they come with a 60000km guarantee so Goodyear must be confident in their product.
Great off road tyre.
The Goodyear Duratrac's are a fantastic tyre for both on and off road applications. I have used them in some pretty harsh conditions through the Victorian High Country. Rock, mud, snow they perform really well.
For a tyre that has a block pattern tread, they are rather quite on the road.
I received excellent wear from them, considering the off road punishment they were put through.
Great tyre if your 4wd is a daily driver.
USA or China
Very happy with the Duratracs, done 40000Ks and still going good.
I damaged a tyre 4WDing not the tyres fault no one to blame but me, side wall got caught up on the tray.
Picked up new tyre today and when i got it home noticed it is made in China, my originals are made in USA.
I asked for exactly the same tyre. Not happy!
hoping to get great wear from these tryes.
have not had these tryes on to long, so am hoping they will last a long time, so far in the wet weather they are good to drive on. L paid a bit extra to get better tyres, Goodyear do have a good name for themselves. As l need to replace all 4 tryes l spent a lot of money.
Have travelled over 100 thousand K’s and have Approximately 35% tread remaining. Approximately 60% of those were towing our off road camper from Victoria to QLD return, NT return and W A return with the cruiser fully loaded. They are also very quiet on bitumen and good in mud and sand.
I will definitely get these tyres again.
The Allrounder is back
Due to my work I am involved in Primary Production and give everything I own a work out.I have driven 60 000 km on rural roads. About 40 000 is on bitumen and 20 000 on gravel. Even carrying weight. These Duratracs are that durable. Handle both and smooth. Even in mud the seemed to do well. Goodyear have done well here.
Fantastic all round tyre
Fantastic tyre. The car sits firmly on the road in all conditions. They are reasonably quiet with a slight hum when cruising at 100 kph. No under/over steer on gravel roads.
These tyres are also very good in the mud. While expensive, worth every penny. These tyres have side wall protection to help protect the wheels from curb scrapes
Purchased for $320.00.

High Quality Tyre
These are my first set of Good Year Duratracs and chose them because of the consistently favourable reports. Have just covered over 30,000 kms and am as happy as Larry. Great on bitumen with outstanding grip, wet or dry, and can’t fault them on the dirt. Wearing evenly, balanced and rotated every 10,000km by Toyota Service. Road noise is not an issue and would seriously consider another set when the time comes, made in the US.
Had a set of duratracs and did over 80000km. Wide range of driving. Hwy around town to trap rock and desart. Could not say a bad word about them. Was told by the dealer nothing had changed with the duratracs so bought another set. Not even the same tyre. May look the same but thats all. Tyres are noisy vibrate and steering wheel shakes. Can't get them to balance properly and car wonders all over the road. Have had car checked out and told it is the tyres. 1 type has 180g of weight on it. Have put in 3 complaints with the dealer and just get to...ld someone will ring you back. The only difference is the old tyres were made in the usa and the new ones are made in China. These tyres only have just over 10000km on them and are chipped and marked and have not done much work. Last time i will use duratracs and due to poor customer service last time I'll buy Goodyear again.
I had a lot of road noise for some time and complaints to men at work then one if looking st my then concluded I needed new ones. I found out my tyres had lasted exceptionally well. I've had my SUV from new and the Goodyear Wrangler had lasted almost 130k's so I figured into a 'good' and replaced them like for like. I'm once again back to enjoying a quiet drive rather than road noise and feel much safer driving in the wet.
Best 4wd Tyre on the Market
I am now on my 3rd set of Goodyear Duratracs and am still impressed by this tyre. I have used various brands over the years with some good results but after changing to the Duratracs I will not by another tyre. I do a lot of outback touring and have traveled some very hard roads and 4wd tracks from rock, mud and snow and these tyres fill me with nothing but confidence when doing so. I have had no problem getting 90000 kms out of a set of these tyre each time. I rotate them every 10 thousand ks and they alway wear evenly. Like I said there are other quality tyres out there but the Duratracs are King of the heap. I don't work work for Goodyear, I just appreciate a good product and have no problem singing its praises when I find one.
Really happy with the performance on and off road of these tyres
Have had the duratracs on an old diesel Pajero size 265/75/r16 for past 6 years and 60000 k's. My thoughts:
Road grip wet and dry remains impressive. The tyres are now flogged and they still hang on well. I wouldn't take them out bush in the state they're in now, but previously have been impressed with they're performance over the Simpson in the wet, on dirt roads and on rocks in the flinders. No punctures. The side walls feel effective in mud. The cars generally pretty noisy on the highway, but tyre noise is obvious over 80 in the state they...
$1600 down the drain
I brought a set of these last week and after a weekend out bush all 4 are damaged and i now need a new set. I got 45000kms off my coopers in the same conditions and ive been running around in my mates 10 year old duelers for 2 weeks without a flat on the same track
So Far So Good
These tyres have travelled 35,000 km for work. Spent a lot of time on the open road with some off road work, but nothing extreme. Have had them rotated every 10,000km. Will get at least 60,000 at this rate and they still maintain a their great grip on wet sealed roads. They give a nice subtle hum, but are far from noisy. Off road they seem very capable, more so than the drivers! Highly recommended and they have now been requested for the latest vehicle to be ordered by colleagues.
Just put a set of wrangler duratrac on only a month ago, will come back in another few months to let you know how the tyres are fairing. Fitted to a 80 series landcruiser diesel, so far grip on the blacktop in wet and dry very good, also very good with the lack of road tyre noise on the blacktop, so up to now excellent, could change in the future time will tell.
