I have a Toyota Tacoma 2 wheel drive. I put these tires on because the lightness of the rear of the truck made it slip and slide and break loose on corners when the road was slick. that's all gone now. the unique tread design includes little fish hook like cuts which attracted me to the tread design. My choice was justified. Even with light snow on the roads I have a confident feeling of total control. I'm telling everyone who will listen what I think of these tires. I will buy them for my other vehicle when it becomes necessary.
