If it had been a special order tire, I might have been more skeptical.
There are only a few tires out there that have 3 ply sidewalls. Toyo mt's and bfg mud and a/t's. Unless you are rock crawling or going through lava rock fields u dont need 3 ply sidewalls. Especially on a diesel...not the best off road vehicle in my experience.

Actually, most of the E rated all-terrain and mud-terrain tires have 3-ply sidewalls. I know my Trail Grapps do and the Cooper ST MAXX tires I was looking at did, too...so do the Terra Grapps and a lot more. While the Duratracs are E rated and aggressive, they only offer a 2-ply sidewall.

I had 35" atzs and they were a great tire! Had about 20000 miles and still had about half tread left. Also they balanced well on the 20" wheels I had them on.
