    I'm looking to find out if these tires are any good. Do they ride well, and do they last very long?

    I just put a set on last night, so I don't know how long they'll last, but I can tell you how they feel on dry pavement. They do make a humming sound at higher speeds... they're not super loud, but you can definitely hear them. It has a fairly aggressive tread, more so then any pictures lead you to believe.

    They are rated "D" but feel like an "E"... they are pretty stout and heavy from my first impressions.

    I had them on my 06........My opinion they are the best tires i ever had on any truck. They ride great, look great, wear great and i had absolutely no problems with them. They will 100% be on my "09" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had them on my truck for about 19,000 miles before my truck got totaled, they still showed no signs of wear and still rode great. Also they had great wet road traction !!!!

    Did your tires make a humming sound above 20 mph? Mine are brand new and I'm wondering if these tires just hum at higher speeds or if I need to have them readjusted (i.e. rebalanced or realigned).

    Thanks.

    I thought they were super quiet......but you are talking to a guy that has had super swampers on every other truck. Compared to swampers the ATZ's are like a car tire

    If anyone wants a set of these I have 4 brand new (300 miles) 285 70 R17 for sale in the Buy/sell/trade. These are great tires--Hummed a little but only when I really listened for it. A little too large for my 02. The local tire store owner told me his bud got 75K miles out of his!

    If you can hear them 'singing' to you with the windows up (and the music on softly) then they are too loud. I would like to know, because I was thinking of them as the first replacement set on my new Tacoma once the Rugged Trails wear out. I had Cooper Discoverer STTs before, and they were too loud for my liking.

    I've had two sets on my 2007 F250.

    They are without a doubt a very impressive tire. I put at least 30K with little to no signs of wear. They are very quiet for the agressive look, you can roll with the windows down and barely hear them.

    I had 33's and was so impressed that I purchased another set of 35's when I upgraded.

    Highly recommend.

    For an AT tire, I like them. I was contemplating whether or not I could live without MTs on my truck and if so, these are what I'd probably run. They look way tougher/more agressive in person than they do in pics. The advertised tread depth is also a noticeable amount deeper than other ATs, like Toyo AT's, etc. I never gave these ATZ's a thought til I saw a set in person at my local tire shop, they look much nicer up close.
