    I am thinking about getting these. Does anybody have any input or feedback about these tires. On a few websites they are getting good reviews.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Havent seen any reviews of them but IMO I dont care for the tread pattern too much. Not aggressive enough for it to be a true MT, and not enough of a sidewall pattern either.

    If they are cheep why not, but they do look more like a A/T than a M/T.

    i have a buddy that put them on his GMC a few weeks ago. he said they were kickass in the snow compared to the Mastercrafts he ran previously. he was out riding around when we were getting 8-10" and said he had no trouble. no mud review yet, as the ground is still frozen here. IMO they are a pretty good looking tire after i saw them in person...if looks mean anything to you.

    My dad has them on his ram 2500 for the last 15-20k and loves them. Handles snow/icey roads well and does pretty well in the mud considering they are more of an all terrain. They are also pretty quiet and seem to be wearing pretty well. Thinking that will be next tire, since they are pretty cheap and seem to do pretty well.

    I have these tires, and they are AWESOME. Best tire I've ever had. They have the mountain-snowflake symbol, and are AMAZING in the snow. I drove 5,200 miles from Seattle, WA to Austin, TX and back a couple of weeks ago (December). 75mph on packed snow, no problem at all. Ice? No problem (still have to take it easy, these aren't blizzaks). The aggressive tread is great in the deep snow and mud. I would really have to try to get this truck stuck. This tire is the best of all of the worlds.
