The ride is amazing compared to my old Yokohama Geolander A/T's, extremely quiet and smooth! Read the Consumer Report on these... They came out on top of its class for practically half the price! I bought them to replace my worn out A/T's and give me a better DD ride for my interstate road trips and everyday highway driving. The difference is night and day! Extremely quiet and smooth. I plan on getting some dedicated mud/offroad tires for my "fun" but these work great for the other 75% of my Jeep's driving. The siping and softer compounds really make a difference in the rain/slush we've been having around here in KY. Did I mention how quite they are? Haha, I will be back in 6 months to a year to report on the snow and treadwear life, but currently I couldn't be happier!
