Initial Review, 7000 Miles on Tires
December 15, 2011

Put these on my Land Rover Disco 2003. I was expecting road noise with an A/T tire, but was very impressed hearing almost nothing. The ride was better than the Bridgestone tires made for the highway that were previously on the Disco. We have taken several 1000 mile trips on these tires through the worst of conditions and they have never failed me. We were sticking to the road like glue driving through heavy rain passing other trucks and SUV's like they were standing still. Very little hydroplaning if any. Great on road tire and is wearing evenly. Smooth sailing and comfortable on long trips. Now I like to take my Disco off road too unlike many LR owners. These tires have performed beyond my expectations. They have been through deep mud, deep snow and deep sand. They never wavered. My father-in-law was with me on a trail with a steep 100yrd incline that had been rain soaked for a full week. I don't think one could even make it up this incline walking. The first words out of his mouth were, "We're gonna get stuck." I said, “Psssh” calmly drove straight up the incline. The tires held their grip more than I thought they would. No problem. He then asked, "What kind of tires do you have on this thing?"
Destination A/T. Great tire for the money and versatility.
