I have had a set of duratrac's on one of my landcruisers for about three years. Great multi-use tire, drove across the US twice on them, good highway behavior, have had them off road, worked great, and best snow tire I have ever had, bar none. Reportedly have weak sidewalls so may not be the best choice in areas where you have a lot of sharp rocks or other objects that can penetrate the sidewall, but I have not experienced this myself. Other tire you may want to also consider is Toyo AT II.
Another data point:
A local mudder has 285 DTs and they do fantastic on the snow/ice. However, they're prone to punctures and I think he lost two tires. He also had a bit of a time trying to get Discount Tires to balance them. They're just not quite right according to John.
Not related to your question but just another data point: I've had a set of 315 Nitto TG since '09 and have yet to balance them or get a flat. However, I do zero mud wheeling. My TGs are made in the USA and I'm going to buy another set shortly...once I sell another kidney.
They did great in the mud! Hopefully you can test them again at the Christmas partyI've had 315 ST Maxx on for 5 months now and wheeled them about 5 times. They've been fantastic. Even did surprisingly well in the local clay on a wet but not raining day.
