So Far So good. When I chose these tires, I did so for a few reasons. First and Foremost I need a tire for my little 4x4 that was more aggressive than a M+S tire and yet still civilized on the street. Also, I was looking for the Best Bang for the Buck. I would say that the Tread Pattern on the SureTrac is Radial A/T is somewhere between an A/T and an M/T. It's more aggressive than your standard A/T with deeper lugs and wider voids however, not so much that it loses it's street manners. The ride doesn't seem any louder than the M+S tires I took off, behave fine on the pavement but are aggressive enough to get a good bite out in the rocks and dirt. Time will tell how well they hold up to on and off road terrain over time however, at this time I'm quite pleased with my purchase.
