Extreme Country or Fun country

Post by HeavyDuty » Thu Sep 06, 2018 12:18 pm

:cash:
So one of my duratracs was leaking from the sidewall. No marks or gouges. Unrepairable I’m told.
I’m sick of these junk duratracs. Thinking of Dick Cepek.
I had fun country on my last truck and loved them. But am torn between them or the extreme country. Anybody have any experience with the extremes?

Its like the stupid things just crack open, its UN-believeable. Don't know much about those tires, however I do like my KM3 BFG. What I will say if its an AT vs MT argument I think the MT aggressive tread patterns just look better on a PW. I used ATs on my Titan.

The Extreme Country's have minimal siping - Snow and ice traction may be less than desirable ;)

Burned through 2 sets of the old version of the fun country II’s on a f-350 powerstroke. Loved them, 50k + miles both sets. My neighbor bought the new version for his hummer and they damn sure aren’t the same tire. On my second set of Toyo Rt’s great all around tire for these trucks IMO. Haven’t seen the extreme up close so can’t comment on that one.

Just at the tire shop getting my extreme country mounted. Will post pics. They look like a great tire.

Well. After 2 days of testing I have to say that these tires are really good. A tad bit noisier than stock. But the real difference is how the truck handles. I can’t believe how terrible the stock tires are. It’s incredible. Night and day. What a difference.
