Great traction - wet, ice, and snow. Huge boost in confidence in my truck's ability to handle the elements over OEM tires. While they are very quiet, you can definitely feel the tread when driving over 70 mph on a smooth highway. But, that is to be expected with such an aggressive tread and I personally don't consider it a negative. They handle the torn up roads of Denver very well with less bounce than the OEM tires. I used to lose the back-end if the roads were just slightly wet, while in 4 wheel drive, with the OEM set. With these, in 2 wheel drive, I can corner in the rain instead of pray I don't hit someone or something. Overall, these tires exceed my expectations, they are priced right, look right, and handle great.
