If you take your Jeep or truck off-road this is tire everyone gets that have done their research. I got 45,000 out of my first set and I didn't even consider another tire or brand when it was time to replace them. 45K doesn't sound like much compared to street tires but in this class there is no equal. If road noise bothers you this may not be your tire but the traction advantage greatly out weighs a little tire singing. Ice is the one thing these tires don't like but when it comes to snow or mud, the tires are a definite confidence builder! I have never had any issue with balancing unlike many other brands and they have a strong sidewall that holds up well while playing in rocks.
