I am an outside sales sales rep for a mechanical contractor. I have been driving over 50,000km per year for work for the past 21 years. I have driven all different types of vehicles over the years, cars trucks, FWD, RWD, 4WD. I will not drive on all season tires in winter.
I have a new 4WD company truck had these as OEM and they were rated as All WEATHER tires. They may get by in the occasional snow fall in the south but they are useless in the wet heavy snow of New Brunswick. Got the truck last March and managed it through the lightest March snow fall I can remember.
Last week we got the first snow fall of the year. Three cm of wet heavy snow fell. I have 200lbs of sand at the tailgate and could barely move in 2wd. Switched into 4wd and struggled to stop or turn when I needed to. Would have been happier in my personal Honda Accord with winter tires.
These tires are now in the garage till spring and proper winter ice tires are on the truck. I was out in the second snow fall of the year (more snow, just as wet) and had better traction moved around, stopped, turned no problem with 300% more traction.
There is no substitute for proper winter tires
Got a set of 17 inch for the F150 and these tires came studded.
They are great on ice and snow. Don't pack up snow as much as the toyo I had on my old F150. Stopping in very good and noise is not bad for a studded tire...
Overall great tire, tread is still even after 20k inthe winter...
These tires came on my new pick up, I was surprised at first at how good they rode, but that soon changed at 6000 miles. I started to have a vibration. I went to local tire shop and I was told all 4 tires were out of round and 2 were real bad. They have been replaced with another brand. Maybe I just got a bad set. But no more Goodyear for me.
Got these in March on my levelled truck and have been more than happy with the first 5500 kms. They have an aggressive MT look but have a quiet ride like an AT should. Tread wear has been even and minimal thus far. Used in a small amount of snow and traction was good. Having the snowflake on them is a great feature for Canada. Great value for the price!
These tires are the worst tires I have ever owned. I had them installed on a new, 2015 F150 Platinum truck. They were great for about 5,000 miles. Then a little vibration here and there. At 14,000 miles, I tried to rotate them. The truck would not steer correctly. It was dangerous. I put the tires back to their original location and it worked fine for about 10,000 miles. Now, the dangerous steering has started back. The treads are still very good. Very little tread wear, they are just dangerous. They seem to hit a groove in the road and want to follow it. You have to fight the steering wheel to get control back. This is the truth, no exaggeration. There is a reason that these tires are being recalled. It was a waste of $1,500.00.
Horrible on wet or snowy roads. Have to put it in 4x4 to keep control. Hope we don't get ice before I get these worthless tires off my truck. Can't understand why any truck manufacturer would put these dangerous tires on a vehicle. I wouldn't trust any inexperienced driver with these tires.
