Forgot to update this from 6 years ago. These tires were horrible. From the noise to the sliding under hard braking, these tires made driving a chore. I detested having to go on long trips and actually feared for my life when it rained - even though I had plenty of tread left. I don't know how I gave these a 7.83 initially. After I got my set of Yokohama Geolander HT-S G051's, I will never go back; the Yoko's have lasted me for FIVE years, 78,000 miles, I have worn them down to the CORDS and they still drive better, and with no noise - might I add, than the Continentals.

Not bad tires ... but the sidewalls are so squishy! Having stiffer sidewalls would possibly cut down on the windshear on something this big. Also, am now getting vibration at higher speeds 65+. Will be changing to BF Goodrich Long Trails or Bridgestone Duelers. Might pay more, but I expect more out of SUV tires for something this heavy. Not bad tires, I reiterate! Just that there are better tires for this kind of money.
