Can not beat the price VS performance. I've used more brand name tires in the past and there is very little difference between these and Toyos as far as off road performance goes. Tread wear seems ok so far. No issues with having them balances. Seem like good quality tires but time will tell. The only area where they are junk is on snowy/icy roads... but with that being said, It's a flaw with the style of tire not so much the brand itself. The large lugs on mud tires don't provide a lot of biting edges. I get all my mud tires siped. It will void any warranty on the tires of course but it gives SIGNIFICANTLY better snow/ice traction. Buy these tires! Why waste money on a tires brand name when you can get something that works just as well for less. Will buy again when I wear theae out.
