    Changed out my Dunlops (245/75r16) for some slightly used Starfire A/t's (265/70/r16) And since I have never heard of this brand, I thought I would give my Review. This is on a 2WD Prerunner.

    Asphalt/Road: Good traction, Handles great when turning. Shake like hell at speeds between 55-60/63 MPH. After I pass the 65MPH mark they seem to even out, no more shake ( may be a balance issue, will check it out this weekend) Low noise.

    Dirt Road/Compacted Dirt: at 35MPH and lower they handle great grab onto everything to keep the truck on a straight line. At higher speeds they seem to slide a lot more than I want them to but as long as I compensate, its all good.

    Loose sand and hills will be tested this weekend.

    With that much siping they look like a winter/ice tire. Should have excellent grip on the rocks.

    update on the road: been driving around for a few weeks now and the ass end is much more easy to whip around( slides a lot on hard take offs in turns) but still no control issues
