Performance and Design

To start we will begin with the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac. We will be going over the design, performance, and price of this tire as well as for the Destination MT2. The design of the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac is an All-Terrain Tire design. This means that it is an acceptable tire for on and off-road driving. It will be quieter on highways than a mud tire and it will be less aggressive than a mud tire too.

The tread is made for traction in mud, snow, and on-road no matter what the conditions. It has a 2-ply sidewall. It is severe snow certified as well. It has self-cleaning shoulder blocks that will clean tread of debris and this will enhance off-road traction in dirt, gravel, and mud.

It is important to note that the Wrangler Duratrac is not optimized for hardcore off-roading but it is a really great choice for the off-roading weekend warrior. On top of that, it has the ability for hauling and all sorts of on-road driving as well. It is offered in a variety of sizes.

Price

 

The price for this tire is a little up there in comparison to other All-Terrain Tires. The price is dependent based on the size that you are looking for, but overall these are at a more premium price than others. Ranging from $992 at the lowest price and $4,676 at the highest price for a set. These are definitely a really great tire, but it is up to you if that price is a worthy investment for you.

Performance and Design

 

The Firestone Destination MT2 is a Mud-Terrain Tire. This means that it is specifically designed to go off-road. It is not optimized for on-road driving. It will be loud on highways and have a  far more aggressive design than the Wrangler Duratrac. They look really cool and exciting with their huge tread blocks, biting edges, and deep tread voids. All of these design choices are to optimize traction off-road, eject mud and stones, and of course to keep you safe.

These tires will also be made of a softer compound than the Wrangler Duratrac. This means that it will grip onto the rough off-road terrain. Even though it is a soft compound that does not mean that it isn’t a tough tire though. It is resistant to chips and tears with a multi-layer compound. These tires are also great in all weather conditions too. You can get this tire in a variety of sizes though more are offered from the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac.

Price

 

These tires also come in at a more premium price. Though this higher price tag is not uncommon among Mud-Terrain Tires, they generally tend to cost a little more. These range from $980 to $2,024 for a set.

So which one is better? Well, ultimately that is up to you. It depends on what you are looking for. If you are a true off-roading enthusiast and use your truck off of the road more than you do on-road, then look at the Firestone Destination MT2. However, if you drive your truck day to day or drive it more on the road than off the road, then look into the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac.
