Bought these tires for my Jeep Liberty CRD. Mounted them on dedicated rims. Bought tires slightly oversized, but only by.2 inches.
Tires have a slight road noise, but to be expected with a more agressive tread. Tires were tested in the Blizzard of 2013. Tires gave me confidence that I was in control of the vehicle. I admit, I did get stuck, but only after high centering the vehicle in a 3 foot snow drift. No fault of the tires, just the driver.
I opted not to stud the tires. If I was in a location prone to more snow and ice, I may have. But, I did like the fact that these tires gave me that option.
