I bought these tires to replace perfectly good wranglers as the sidewall flex on the wranglers were horrible. I have 125,000 miles on them and am buying another set. They would have passed inspection up to about 100,000 miles. Fantastic in snow, excellent in dirt and mud and as good as they get on ice. I drive in Maine on the coast so they see snow, slush, ice, mud and everything in between. The noise level was great till they hit the wear bars at about 100000 miles. I used this vehicle for work (scene response fire/ambulance) and they performed regardless of the weather, including runs on the beach. Made by Michelin, balanced well. They might be a little pricey but honestly with the mileage I got out of this set I cant wait for the new ones to come in.
