Initial Review, 300 Miles on Tires
June 14, 2012

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!

Got these tires on my 2007 FJ Cruiser. 265/70R17s and I couldn't be happier with them. Had "All Terrain" highways on before and I've noticed a little more noise and a tiny bit less MPG. But the ride on the highway is smooth, light to moderate off-road is awesome. Dry handeling is above average, wet and muddy traction is great. I've driven this in bad storms with water halfway up the tires and they continued to plow through with no issues. Tire life, ride and a decent price...think this tire is on my Toyota for life.
