    Was wondering who agrees with me? I got about 12 k out of them and they were completely trashed, I do live at the end of 3 miles of gravel/ dirt and travel the curvy roads of West Virginia, but I feel like they should have held up a little better.

    I pushed mine to 30,000 miles but the last 10,000 sucked. They'd spin on wet roads and were unsure around corners (and no I don't drive my truck like it's a sports car). I'm very happy to have them gone! :)

    I have just over 30,000 on them, they have been ok, I won't miss them when they are gone though. :)

    They were fun to slide in, but I hated them in the rain. They also don't have good life as well. Mine lasted about a year, maybe under 9-10k and they were gone, although I do push my truck. Got some bridgestones and are SO much better as a overall tire. Basically anything you will find will be an improve from these tires.

    I have had 6 leaks and one flat! Now I have the tread breaking apart! Issues started at 15k and have 25k now. So What's a good Replacement that will fit Stock suspension and Wheels? I'm looking into BFG 265/75/16?

    that 265 may rub just a tiny bit here and there... maybe not...would be a major improvement...

    Absolute worst tires I have ever owned. No traction in wet conditions.
