I live on a dirt road and drive on adverse conditions almost daily. I got these tires thinking they were a decent all terrain tire and I was right, but they rank on the low end in my opinion. On pavement they are decent with average cornering and stability but they are quiet. They have been good on snowy and snow packed roads as well as ice. Deep snow they are just ok. I've used them hunting in the mountains and plains. Decent on packed dirt and ok on gravel/rock. In mud they are pretty much worthless as steering and control goes out the window. If your main job is around town with some off roading on the weekends you'll be happy, but if you need a tire for off road use during day to day driving these tires are not for you.
