Kind of disappointed in this tire. After using the Toyo mud terrains which are amazing but wear out quickly, I was hoping this tire would impress. They did not. First it took the shop three tries to balance them, a comment I've seen many other people make. Then with less than 10k miles on them, I got a flat while driving on a gravel road, bad luck maybe but surprising for a tire designed for off-roading. Road noise and handling are fine, not good not bad. Off-road traction is okay, not much better than the highway tires they replaced. Already looking for something else.
Great off-road/everyday tire, got 50,000 miles out of them on my 2011 Tacoma. Lots of tough off-roading and daily driven on the highway. They were slightly louder on the highway and I lost a little gas mileage over the factory all-terrains but it was worth it for the off-road performance. Still had decent tread at 50k miles just were uneven enough that the wouldn't balance well anymore. Sold them to a guy that was going to put them on his old farm truck. Probably will get another 10-15k out of them.
I have these tires on my 4wd tacoma. they work well. Good dry and wet traction, good snow traction, great ice traction, stopping is good as well. They do not compare to blizzak WS80's in snow/stopping ability, but they do work well. They also seem to last a good amount of time. Noise starts around 40km/h but it pretty quiet, equal to the blizzaks, more equal to michelin x-ice2.
I had Dunlop's on my truck, then I changed them for Hankook's. Traction on wet and dry conditions deffiniteve improved. They offer a soft and quiet ride. I definetily would recommend these tires for an SUV or Pick Up.
I have use them for around 20,000 kilometers and rotate them every 5000 kilometers. Improper worn does not seems to be an issue so far, and until now tires do show some worn but not excesive.
As I live in Mexico, I haven't had the chance to try them on snow so I cannot give an opinion of how do they perfom on snow.
