OMG! These tires are the s**t. Replaced my POS OEM with these going on recommendations from Clubtitan. These tires rule. felt difference immediately. Definately less roll and they feel more stable - better response and less roll on turns.

I went with the 285-60-18 H rated. 775.00 for all four installed at tires direct.

So how were the tires you ask?? Best damn tires I ever bought. I purchased snow chains for the trip just in case and never thought about using them.
