First for the good. They do better than most A/T tires for hydroplaning resistance and are good on wet roads. They are quiet on the road but that is a minimal issue for me. The sidewalls are strong and do well against sharp rocks. That is all I can say about these tires that is good.

On dry pavement they are fine, they have never let me down, but I don't drive it like I stole it so I have noticed no difference between these tires and others.

Tire wear is ridiculous, 32k miles and they are very bald with regular rotations, I don't like buying tires every 6-7 months. BFG AT gave me 55k miles and performed better/similar in all categories. If you would like a tire for winter, these are not the ones. I have BFG MT KM2 on my Jeep and they provide better traction on ice than these do and the KM2s are a little scary on ice. They do decent in snow 3-6 deep any more or less and they are horrible. Mud, forget about it. Not talking about mud holes but any mud, the tread doesn't clear at all. They do OK in sand for a A/T tire but sand is sand. The ride is rougher than on other tires but on a F-250 the ride isn't great in the first place.

Overall I would avoid these tires. Are they better than highway tires, for my use yes, but there are many A/T tires that are better and cost less(per mile). I will NOT buy these tires again, nor will I recommend them to anyone.
