These replaced the original set of Continental 4x4 Contacts. For the price, these have been great. We use this vehicle for city commuting, pulling a 22 foot boat, pulling a 30 foot travel trailer, and going skiing about every week during the season, in the mountains near our house. They seem to have better handling and traction than the original tires ever did. I was put off by the price of Michelins and Continentals in the needed size and thought I would try these, and I'm glad I did. The original tires were at the wear bars at 28,000 miles and these look like they'll probably go about the same distance, which I would be satisfied with. They look good too, if you care about that sort of thing.
