Well I got about 10,000 miles on em and they seem to be wearing very well. Ive took em through West Virginia mud, Ice, snow, rain, and pavement. This is for size 255/70r16

Mud: Well they ain't no mudders but will get you through!

Ice/Snow: This is where the tires shine! They love the snow and keep traction on the ice. But like any other smooth surface, drive careful and these tires will keep you safe.

Rain: No hydroplane at all and they grip just like its dry.

Pavement: Very good road manners but let you know you are running an AT. Seem to be getting the miles advertised by General Tire (50,000 warrenty).

All in all out of 5

Mud 3.5
Ice/Snow 5
Rain 4
Pavement 5

I had a set of at2s on my 96 4x4 and they held up great. Traction was ok but the quality and longevity were exceptional. I didn't have to balance them at all after the initial install, just rotated them a few times. I would highly recommend them if u want an a/t tire.

what about wear and tear on the other components like the hubs and ball joints? i got a set of Cooper STT 31x10.50x15's on my 98 4x4 ranger and as cool as they are they have eaten suspension components.

i have replaced the ball joints on both side at least twice since ive had them and ive replaced both hubs as well.

i still have them on now because i cant afford new ones at the moment but i will need new ones soon so im saving up for some. i dont do much off-roading but i do live in the sticks so backroads and shitty pavement are everywhere. so i can rule out the roads as being the culprit for replacing suspension parts so often since they aren't that rough.

speaking from my experience they are heavier than other tires of the same type and size. I wouldn't recommend them for any kind of mud situation as they suck for self cleaning. as far as snow I'm semi impressed but for the price I've seen, I wouldn't buy them new as I can find comparable tires cheaper. I'M not sure on what ply rating mine are but compared to what I've ran in the past they defiantly ride rougher and bounce my truck around on dirt roads..

here's mine.

My credo
I need more sleep.
I got 31's on right now, there great! I get lots of traction in about everything. And it cost me around $140 a tire so the price was great as well. They also have spots where you can put studs into them.
