I've had these on my truck for about 8k now and couldn't be happier with them. Not going to lie, they are loud on the highway, specifically between 50 and 65, they seem to get a little quieter at higher speeds. These are about 4 larger than the factory tire size on my truck and they fit well. Just had our first snow (which I was waiting to write this review for) and they are great. Aside from studding them, or going with a true winter/ice tire, ice and light snow traction doesn't really get much better... On our farm, we had small drifts of about a foot in places sitting on top of loose grass - couldn't have asked for more traction with any tire...

On the road, they are civilized in the dry and wet specifically - never once had any of those butt pucker moments with these, whereas a set of the older BFG M/T's I have had several, different vehicles, but driven the same...

In the mud, they are amazing. A friends truck got stuck in a mud pit (with a m/t tire), pulled him out, I was able to pull into the mud, stop, back up, and continue... Sure, different truck, but these are so good at self cleaning that never did they feel bogged down...

I don't think its possible, but the only improvement possible, IMO, with these would be reduced noise. Relative to other M/T Tires, though, they are similar. I would recommend rotating these tires more often than most, I've been doing every 3-4k...
