Purchased the tire for mostly offroad use, but wanted something that had good on road manners. The tire has been very quiet, and continues to perform well on-road. Offroad the tire does ok, but don't expect MT performance from this tire. In dirt, sand and snow the tire does pretty well, but deep mud is not this tires forte due to the tightly spaced center rib. I have not had any issues with the sidewalls despite all the rumors on the internet about the weak sidewalls, and I regularly run them at 10-15 psi. If you are the occasional offroader, this would be a good tire for you, but if you are more hardcore, stick with the MTR or similar.
