Only had them for a few thousand miles so far but incredibly happy. I think most of the complaints on these tires come from really heavy trucks not using E-rated tires. Additionally, I recommend spending the extra money to have them road force balanced. If you do this, I think you will be very happy. With regards to tread life, this is a softer compound, which I enjoy far more than my old BFGs and should be great for snowy/muddy conditions but may also lead to faster wear. Since this isn't my daily commuter I don't worry as much, instead desiring the best overall inclement condition tire for my rig.
