They have decent reviews:

If you have the option and care about buying American, look for the Hercules Trail Digger M/T.

The company is more well known in drift community. Not sure about their offroad tires.

Well i think i might give em a try they are only $700 for a set of 33x12.50x20 where as toyos, nittos, kuhmos and everyone elses tires are over double that.....so who cares if they only last 20k miles ill buy another set and still be ahead of the game ya know

Make sure to post pics once they're on. Just out of curiosity, what was the reasoning behind running 20" wheels?

I would like to get some more opinion than that. I've had good luck with lesser known brands. I think it has a lot to do with how you care for the tires.

Sure, if you drive 20k miles and never rotate them and peel out around corners...they won't last. But if you keep them balanced, properly inflated and make sure your truck is in good alignment, there's no reason you shouldnt have good success with these.

I've read several good reviews, and I see them on a lot of trucks in my area. I'd like to hear more first hand experience.

So what did you go with, OP?

Sorry I no longer have my taco but I ran 33x12.50x20 toyo m/t and they were great.....for looks that is! Very heavy tires mpg went way down and very noisy on the road and very expensive but IMO you can't beat their looks!

I work at a tire shop so I rotate and balance regularly and do my own alignments and they still went down quick

I have used the federal 595 and 595 rs car tires on my 99 civic si. They were great tires for the price and had a great compound that lasted a long time. Idk anything about the truck tire specifically but i do recommend the brand as a whole. I would get them or treadwright

I had these tires a while back.. They're so damn loud, even when brand new. But they cleaned well and dug some deep ruts. They're not the best tire and they wore really quick. There are better same price range tires out there.

I didn't mean to imply that you didn't take care of them. I just have a hard time believing that they could be that bad.

I see them on a lot of trucks around here. Very rarely do you see any that look worn down...
