Pros: Excellent traction and directional stability in all conditions. Handles Southwest's extreme heat well.
Cons: None on the four sets currently in use on F-250s and F-450s.
These tires are in ranch and highway use on 2002 - 2007 F-250 and f-450 Crew Cab 4X4s used for towing up to about 12000 lbs and for all around use in hot dry climate with moderate winter snow and mud use.
Trucks need to operate in all weather, ascend / descend steep, rough ranch and forest roads while carrying moderate to heavy loads in bed and / or in trailer. Tires need good self-cleaning tread and tough sidewalls and great bruise, puncture, and cut resistance.
These tires do well in our extreme climatic temperature range from single digits to 110 and occasionally higher.
Speeds vary from crawling pace to over eighty mph for long stretches of rural interstate highways.
We have had no failure due to any manufacturing defect. Keep the air pressure set properly and rotate them on a fairly regular schedule and they will get very good fuel mileage and the life expectancy will be better than average.
Great on / off road tire in private and commercial use. We have tried many different tires ( some were very good and some were taken off and used for planters and swings ) and settled on this manufacturer and model.
