Has anyone run both BFG KO2 and Goodyear Duratrac?

I had 33" Duratracs on my JK and liked them.

My 2020 JL Rubicon came with the factory 33" KO2s, I pulled them off after two weeks and replaced them with 35" Duratracs. I would have saved money going with the KOs over the DTs. Having run both, I think they are similar in ride noise and handling. Duratracs just look more aggressive and they say Wrangler on the side, so...

Another vote for the Goodyear Duratracs - I can’t say enough good things about these. When it comes to wet weather/slippery surfaces/poor traction, these perform exceptionally well. The tread not only looks aggressive but is also VERY functional.

I had both on my JK in 285/70-17 and liked them both. The goodyears seemed to wear faster though. I have only bought BFG's since.

Have run both, duratracs got loud and slippery on wet roads after about 40k miles, still had some tread on them when I sold them.
Same here. Still had tread left but after sliding through a stop sign in the rain I ditched them. The DTs seem to not age so well.

This is true. I always get rid of mine before this point. If try to squeeze every mile out of a tire the DT's do go down hill at higher mileages.

I have never had a problem with KO2s.

I drove down a short gravel road with virtually new Duratracs and got a tire puncture from a piece of gravel getting between the treads. I pulled the gravel out myself, so I know that is what is was. I can’t recommend Duratracs.
