OEM tire on my Tacoma 4x2 2.7L 5 speed Access Cab, wearing out under 36k miles. still have another 3-4k left on them before unsafe tread but winter is coming and i wont be able to drive in snow this year. in 2010 NJ got hit with snow storm after snow storm, i TOWED a 550CC Artic Cat Snowmobile on a 4x8 trailer through it ALL. truck has traction control but the tires grabbed GREAT, no slipping, little tire spin and im talking 8 of snow with a trailer behind me with a 500lb sled. granted, i am an awesome driver, but the tires made it easier for me to get through the mess of NJ winters. if they lasted 50k, id give it all 10s. does ok slow on sand, dirt and mud, as i have land in NC and take the truck through the fields to get around the property. the tires are VERY GOOD, not excellent but no garbage by any means. i had the LEs in 31s and those were great tires also. Destinations are very good tires, just wear is fast but offset by the affordable pricing and overall performance, id probably get them again. trying 215/75/15 this time to correct the OEM speedo inaccuracy problem (speedo off by 3mph) and getting HanKooks to see how they do....
