Thank you. I'm quite happy with them.

Anything was an improvement over the old steel ones.

Yabut Specta - can a "work truck" even do the work of hauling a camper?

The new shoes look good from here.

140 miles today on a 2-lane canyon HWY with a 65 mph posted speed limit.

Hit 85+ twice passing slowpokes.

They do handle better than my previous tires in the corners.

Once again, I believe that I made the right choice.

But then, I always do, [emoticon]

The pick up some nice size ricks between the lugs when you leave the pavement and when you're back on the road they can bang pretty loud when they hit inside the fenderwell.

Other than that so far so good. [emoticon]

....if you think those rocks caught between those treads are big, I'll make a photo of the 1/2 to 3/4 golfball-sized rocks we get caught in the treads of our Goodyear Duratrac tires !

I always extract the rocks from our Duratrac tires on exiting gravel roads (we live on a gravel road; I use needle-nosed pliers), because if those things hit the under-wheel wells, they will take the paint right off as effectively as a pellet gun. Or, go through someone's windshield...[emoticon]

Thanks for picking them out. [emoticon]

I've had way more aggressive tires than there but forgot about the rocks.

It wont be long and I wont have any paint left in my wheel wells. Except the front ones, they're plastic.

One more reason I stuck with the same size tire.

My new tire chains that I'll never use fit them. LOL
