Comment:
Installed on '05 Tacoma 4x4 4 years ago and have over 45,000 miles on them. These tires are wearing well, rotated and balanced every six months. Tires provide good traction. Somewhat noisy/stiff ride but I have the LT tires. Good tire for the money.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I drive daily on gravel back roads, highway, and interstate in Montana, Minnesota, N. Dakota, and S. Dakota. I haul ATVs, trailers, wood, and truck camper. I drive in all weather. I occasionally drive off-road in pastures and hills. Intermittent driving in snow, ice, rain, and muddy conditions. I have no fault with the tires, when they spin I put my pick up in four-wheel drive and go. These tires are installed on my personally owned pick-up. Compared to the original stock tires I have noticed a slight decrease in ride comfort when going over bumps in the pavement but the positives far outweigh that negative.

Comment:
I live in the Chicagoland area, and drive a lot. Have them on a 04 Ford Ranger 4x4. I use them for highway and new construction / off road. I have installed two sets of Yoks on my truck and both sets exceeded 115,000 for tread life. I have 332,000 miles and on my 4th set of tires. If I didn't use 4x4 the tires would perform fair in snowy conditions. Yes would recommend to everyone.
