I am willing to pay the higher price for these to get a more aggressive tread and incredibly quiet ride. Hard to get both. I tow a travel trailer and go on road trips a lot and couldn't be happier with getting over 40k miles out of these. Quiet ride is huge to me and on a 3/4 ton SUV, they ride great as well. Deeper snow is tough but unless you have mud terrain, most tires will have a tough time.
