These tires are way better than OEM factory set in almost every way possible. When new, within the first 1000 miles of purchase, I took a long road trip from AZ to WA and back. These tires performed very well on this 3000 mile road trip, on forest service roads, city roads, highways, interstates and at one point a rock quarry road. Since then, I've put on almost 40K miles, and these tires are still very good. Road noise is great, wear has been excellent, and other than some deep mud, I've always felt in control of my truck in all the weather conditions these tires have seen.
I got these tires on discount at the time of purchase; I'm waiting and hoping they go back on sale or that I can find them cheaper than they currently are. I consider these tires at the edge of A/T, being a little more street than off-road. But for my driving, they're off-road and all weather enough to do the job when needed. If I can get them a little cheaper, I'll skin my truck in these as long as I own it.
