    Hey guys I wanted some feedback why it seems that everyone doesn't like the Rugged Trails. I've seen a lot of negative feedback as far as preferance but no actual reasoning behind it. Does it perform poorly on the road or off road? Does it wear extremely quickly?

    Reason being is I just picked up a super cheap set used on CL They're 265/75/16 so I figured I'd get my bilstiens installed and have a cheap set of tires to go with it for the time being. Either way I knew I was only goin to use them short term, but just wanted to hear other people experiences with them.

    Thanks!

    Within 2 weeks of purchasing my 2011 DCSB TRD OR I had 2 flats with the stock Rugged Fails.....both from small rocks that punctured the tread....simply from a friend's gravel driveway. Plugged the first. Replaced all 5 after the second.
