tire is more aggressive than last Dueler A/T, but highway noise is less. Dirt and light mud no problem. Deep mud is as good as can be expected. light snow was no problem, but ice was okay. It is a great tire for all purposes that will last all of 60K miles if anything like my last Dueler A/T. Just wish they had a better load rating. However, not a problem with my 5.5ft bed.
