I still haven't wheeled mine hard enough to give a full off road review. They are really nice on road though. We just had 3 inches of snow and The guard dogs weren't to bad. That is without the kledge grip too.

I run 31-10.5-15 Kedge grip Guard Dogs on my CJ7, 15k miles on them in the last year with no issues.

I absolutely love them in the snow, better in 2wd than the original Big-O- M/T where when new in 4X.. No complaints off road, great in the rocks, woods and mud.

Tread wear has been great, rotated once at around 7k. Road noise is the same as when new, tread still soft and compliant.

I've changed my build plans around available tire sizes, for the value and performance of these tires I'll stay with the 31's instead of 33's like I had originally planned.

these look too good to be true

2 questions
how do they hold up to low pressure like 10psi? obvious only for the trails

can the "MTRs" middle lugs be sipped?

I wonder if TW will offer anything with a "shoulder tread" like the Goodyear MTR/Authority.

so far no issues and they work great in snow and in a river! perfect for mud. on their site they said you can air down like a normal tire. one thing though... these tires are loud on road!
edit : i cant see why they couldnt be sipped!

X2 on them being loud. Not as loud as my TSL's though. I like the hum of the tires.

Seem to clean out pretty well.

i almost thought somthing was wrong with my jeep by how loud they were, but i put it on a lift and spun the tires to about 30 MPH it was quiet, tottaly put up like 5 differnt errors for abs and esp traction control system (nothing the mack scan tool couldnt take care of) then i rode in my freinds f-150 with the exact same tires.... yep they are just loud.

aaannndd bump! I'm looking at getting a Tacoma for my DD and cant decide between the pumas or the sentinels (265x75R16) I'd love to have the Guard dogs, but that's completely impractical for my type DD'ing. Anyone ever use the sentinels?

By all means post some pics. I'd like to see what's up. What is their warranty service?

They will replace any bad tires for free, you just have to explain to them what the problem is
