These tires are the best compromise for a person wanting the look of a mud tire and some of those attributes with the onroad personality of an all terain tire. The tires ride extreemly well for a 10 ply tire. They are fairly quiet; much quieter than a full mud tire. Traction on both dry and wet roads is excelent. The tread depth also helps with hydroplaining. Ice and snow traction is great so far, but we have only had one small snow come through with these tires on my truck. These tires are truck tires and do feel tall and tippy when cornering. It may be due to the relativly low pressure I am running in my tires (40psi). Overall, it seems to be a great tire so far.
