Wow, what a tire. I Just purchased my second set. I drive A LOT... I travel 30,000+ miles a year in my truck. I drive very aggressively, and snow is never an excuse for me. When we get snow, that means a 80 mile round trip to the ski resort. This tire will cover any circumstance above, and then some. This is by far the best truck tire that I have purchased to date. I was concerned about road noise when I decided that I wanted a meaty tire, But learned quickly that its not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Snow and mud performance is second to none. The side wall tread really adds another level of traction for a pickup truck. I had my previous set on for 2 years and 3 months, with an estimated 50 to 60,000 miles on them. That's pretty good tread wear for an aggressive tire. I would recommend this to any 4 wheel drive enthusiast out there, you will not be disappointing. I will however recommend that you make sure to get you vehicle aligned yearly and rotate your tires frequently. I believe I could have pushed my last set another couple thousand miles if I would have paid closer attention to the tread wear.
