Comment:
ON 1999 F250 SUPER DUTY 4X4 HAVE HAD THESE TIRES FOR 4-1/2 YEARS AND PUT 25,500 MILES ON THEM. HAVE THEM ROTATED AND BALANCED AT THE TIRE STORE FOR FREE EVERY 5000-6000 MILES. CHECK PRESSURE REGULARLY. VERY LITTLE OFF ROAD EXCEPT TO LAUNCH THE BOAT FROM A DIRT RAMP AND OCCASIONAL GRAVEL ROADS. WENT IN FOR A ROTATE AND BALANCE AND THEY SAY ITS TIME FOR REPLACMENT. SO NOT IMPRESSED WITH THE MILAGE. TO THEIR CREDIT I CAN GET A LITTLE OVER HALF OFF THE NEXT SET.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Good tires in all respects except one terrible aspect which negates all others. These are absolutely the most noisy tires I have ever experienced, by a factor of 5. The noise is unbearable. I would never, ever recommend these tires to anyone.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Bought these tires for my Tacoma 4x4 based on many reviews.<br /><br />Needed a tire that would get me to work and ski areas in all weather conditions and these tires haven't let me down.<br /><br />I've put over 55K miles on these in two years and still have a lot of tread left. <br /><br />The best deal I've found for these tires is through the Costco website (cheaper than buying them in the store?).
How long have you owned it:

Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
