My boss was invited out to test them a couple of weekends ago and from what he told me, they are an alright tire. The new sidewall lugs are a good addition but the rest of the tire is essentially the same as its predecessor. In the climate/terrain up where I am, they like to clog up and become basically slicks. In my personal opinion, they had a chance to change up the tread design to quite possibly compete with the Wrangler Duratrac and the new Toyo R/T but they kind of "dropped the ball." Again, that's my personal opinion.
