The most important thing you will need to know about these tires: They are horrid in any off-road situation. FOR THE LOVE OF --- WILL MANUFACTURERS STOP PUTTING THEM ON 4wd VEHICLES!<br><br>That said, if you never plan to leave the pavement then you should be just fine with them. These tires are not marketed as off-road so I really think it is more the fault of the bean counters at Ram (or the other manufacturers who insist on putting these on 4 wheel drive trucks) than Goodyear. Granted, I do think they have weaker than average sidewall puncture resistance even compared to other highway all seasons, but that's rarely an issue if you don't leave the pavement. <br><br>Tread life, noise, and handling have been fine and I've got no complaints about ride comfort. I enjoy off roading, though, so I will be replacing these tires as soon as I can with either a set of BFG Rough or All Terrains. I just hate having to replace what are otherwise a set of perfectly goo tires.
