Bought these a few weeks before the last snow storm. Before that the truck rode good on the highway and back roads which is my daily commute. Not too much noise. No problems on the rainy days. The big thing I was waiting for is how they would handle in snow with this truck. Some reported they are not good. The factory Conti's are horrible. I left my house with 8 on the ground. With a 30 mile trip to work on the highway and back roads, I couldn't be happier. I never engaged 4x4. Roads were snow and slush covered. Today I hooked up to one of my horse trailers that was snowbound. I had to back it up through two feet of snow about 60 feet down a small road to its parking spot. The tires had no problem getting traction or very little spin. I had these tires years ago on a CJ7 Jeep that a did a lot of four wheeling with. They were great then and I see they have not changed now.
