after a week on these tires I am impressed. My daily commute includes a section of off-road terrain, and if it rains it can get very muddy. I had a set of high performance summer tires. When I looked at buying new tires I wanted something that would give me a decent amount of off-road traction along with good street ability. I have a 2wd 98 Dodge Dakota sport. V8-Manual transmission. These tires handle the dirt as well as they do the pavement. There are no problems putting the power down. I also like that I was able to keep my plus one size 16 wheels and low profile tires. Still can't believe they offer an A/T tire in a 60 series tire. That lets me keep stock tire height, while reducing the sidewall height for better cornering. They look awesome as well!
