I gotta tell ya, I had these tires mounted and put them on my XJ. I had read all the reviews and comments out there before getting them. The day after they were mounted we had snow covered by an ice storm and skating rink the next morning. The tires handled better than expected for driving on a 1/2" of solid ice. When I said go I went and turns were fine with the appropriate caution for conditions. Stopping was an issue but heck stopping on ice is always an issue. The road noise on dry pavement is hardly worse than my old Mastercraft AT's or the Bridgestone AT's I ran before that. It's most noticable at about 40-45mph and minimal at highway speeds. I did sneak on on some very soft turf a week later following 4 days of rain. Once again, I thumped the gas and got nothin but traction (along with the obligitory flying mud). I can't wait to get the rest of the suspension complete and get into some real mud and rock to see what they can really do.
