I absolutely love this tire, have only ever gotten stuck once and that was when the mud was 3/4 up the tire and couldnt spin anymore. I do a lot of highway driving and these tires have exceeded my expectaions on the tread life. I drive agressively and am pretty hard on tires, and for these tires to keep up hold together well, is outstanding. There are some cuts and slits in the tires from climbing rocks and whatnot, some chunks missing from when the tire was rubbing on the inside of the wheel well in extreme articulation. I recommend these tires to everyone, and I get compliments everywhere I go. The tread cleans up well after gettting into mud or snow. I have owned other MT and AT and none of them perform as well as these tires. Noise level is expected but not bad, just turn the radio up :) I love the sound of the tires on the highway so they dont bother me any. If you want great traction and great treadlife, then these tires are for you.
