I liked them for my DD. They worked well on-road and off. Never had any issues with lack of traction, whether on pavement, rocks, or mud.

I do live in the South though, so I don't know how they would work in the snow.

Love Mine. My only complaint is that mine are 31's and not 33's.

I LOVE MY Destination M/Ts!!!! 33x12.5s. They've been awesome on pretty much ever terrain. I'd recommend getting them siped though. Siping them would make them unbeatable in my opinion! I just wish they made 35s!

I love mine as well. Great in the snow and dirt...have yet to see mud with them since I got them in the late fall and everything was frozen already.
Only thing they truly suck on is ICE. She will swap ends on you and put you in the ditch before you have a clue as to what happened. Just make sure that you rotate them religiously if you want long life out of them.

Yep, gotta 'sipe' those large treads blocks ... no matter the brand of tire. Gives the blocks more flex and more biting edges.

I had them (33's) on my 89 4runner. they had 45000 miles on them when I sold it and still had about 40% tread on them. Road manners were fine, noisey like all MT's. tire shop whined when I brought them in for ballance because of the massive rim protecting sidewall. (sidewall was pretty stiff by the way) physically they are a true 33" tire. bigger than my 33" MTRs were. They looked great, I got many remarks about them. good tire.
