Here is my honest review.After owning these tires for a couple of years and testing them in all conditions i can honestly say they are an at best average tire.For dry weather there is nothing better.I have a hard time spinning them with 300hp when its warm out,but when the temp drops to the 40's and you add water watch out!I have 4wd its still a challenge.As for the snow anyone that tells you these are good in light snow is lying.These tires have no sipping and its like having no soles on your shoes when its a dusting of snow.As for the deep snow thats where this tire excells.You could pretty well dig a hole from a stand still with 4wd...i've done it.
Over all if you have a spiffed up Jeep/truck that you drive on-road in California where is warm all the time these are the tires for you, if not look at the Goodyear Commercial Duratracs.They are on the Police issued Chevy Tahoes in Northern Ontario Canada for a reason! Thats what will be replacing these on my truck.Happy Trails
