Had em, great in sand and dirt. Death traps in water or snow.

Could never get them balanced.

But tread life was amazing.

So if you live someplace where it snows don't go that route for an all year tire.

What you choose is up to you

I run them all year round in Minnesota. They're not the best in the snow but manageable. I have been liking them. I have 35's but looking at buying 37's and getting rid of my 35's.

I had them in the past, they lasted through numerous off roading events. Traction is lacking under full throttle off road, but on road they were pretty good.

thanks for the heads up with the snow / water traction. it would probably be better if they had more siping.

Yeah there is no siping. Just big lugs.

Deep snow they are iffy. Dusting a less than an inch or 2 is rough.

Have them, but going to replace them with stock bfg's, they are good in the desert sand, etc. Little slippery in the rain! Will drop your gas mileage 1 0r 2 mpg from the stock bfg's as well.

One thing to keep in mind is that they are HEAVY (80+ lbs each, 15 lbs more than stock).
