Initial Review, 35,000 Miles on Tires
February 28, 2013

This is the second set of these tires on the same vehicle. First set were changed after 54,000 miles and the current set I am running are at 31,000 miles. These are a good tire for the price that I would consider purchasing again. Both sets have been rotated regularly at 7,000 mile intervals.

Here is what I have noticed. Traction is very good in snow covered roads and fields however they load up in mud so I would not want to try pushing these thru a lot of mud. Your typical little bit of mud on back roads and farm field access roads they should be able to handle. Highway and wet roads they are excellent and provide a very good stable, quiet and soft ride. On both sets I have owned the ride has become noticeably stiffer around the 35,000 mile mark. My first set I changed at 54,000 miles but I think this second set will only make it to around 45,000 miles.

My only negative on these is the ride characteristic change with 35,000 miles on them. If these provided the same ride for 50,000 miles I would buy another set without question but since both sets on this truck have changed at that mileage I may look for another tire for my next set.
