I bought these tires when I left Georgia to transfer to Nevada. All the way across the country I had no problems. Once I got to Nevada I was constantly off the main roads and even the main trails. These tires are OUTSTANDING in the sand whether it be soft, deep, shallow or compacted! I have a stock 2005 silverado regular cab four wheel drive and I was pulling lifted trucks/suvs/jeeps out because they just couldn't get the proper traction and would just burry themselves. I then left Nevada and headed to Oklahoma where I have to deal with more rain and mud and there is still no stopping these tires even after they have minimal tread. On the downside the tires wore out rather quickly on the out side edge from cornering and the road noise started getting pretty bad at the end but it was not bad enough for me to not buy a second set! Oh, by the way I loved these tires off road so much I bought a set for my Jeep. I highly recommend these tires for someone that uses their vehicle for a daily driver and weekend warrior.
