I bought these tires after having the stock Goodyears that were dangerous in the rain and these tires have been a great investment!! There very solid tires and if the rear end of my truck starts to slip they pick up traction and regain control very quickly. These seem to be very good tires for my 2wd truck because the rear end of the truck is so light you need a solid performing tire that will keep you on the road in all sorts of conditions. I have put these tires to the test and they seem to perform better in the rain then on dry roads, the contact path these tires make keep you on the road!! They are also very quiet and are wearing nice and even great I love these tires and would buy them again!!!! Best tire I have had yet!!!!
