Initial Review, 9,000 Miles on Tires
This tire performs well in wet conditions, no concerns there. I've only managed to break traction on full acceleration in 1st or 2nd gear. I've never broke traction during corning or breaking. As far as cornering and pushing this tire from a street performance standpoint, I can only rate it as average as I don't drive my truck like a performance car. Off road is above average. Dry conditions is excellent and will get thru mild mud and go thru mild rocks without cutting sidewalls and no chunking of threads yet. Better than some of the firestone destination tires I've ran before. Does great in the snow thus far, however I expect the winter performance to degrade significantly as treadwear decreases due to the design of the tire. Rides well (considering I'm riding a ford p/u) and when new the tires were tolerable on noise. But within a few miles the noise has increased quite a bit, so much so that it is compariable with a mud tire. Threadwear has been good and I expect to get 50-60K based on experiences thus far. Overall, this is a good tire for those who need a balanced appilcation that can do highway and mild offroad, with good longivity, and for a fair price. I've had the best luck with BFG but they are very expensive now. The yoko's are a decent alternative if you're trying to save a few dollars.
