I bought thse tires shortly after they came out on the market. They were purchased based on past performance of BF Goodridge TAs on a 4x4 explorer. Needless to say I am more than pleased. I have a 2WD wothout a locker and these tires have proved to be exceptional tires. During hunting season with snow on the ground in rough terrian the tires have performed very well. The road noise in almost nothing as well as having a smooth ride on the highway. If you are looking for a very good performing all around tire for your light duty pickup or an SUV, you can't go wrong with these tires. They look good too!
