What a great tire. First off, I love the look of these tires, definitely more aggressive than the all seasons my SUV came with. This IS the tire that 4runners should be equipped with from the factory. They are noticeably heavier, marginally louder, and ride a little bit rougher than all seasons, but in inclement weather and snow or in difficult terrain these tires inspire confidence. The trade off is definitely worth the added noise. Run over a curb with these and you'll barely notice it. Fuel economy has been unaffected thus far, and there's no question in my mind the extra cost is well worth the rubber, and my next set will be these.
