I put a set of these on my Jeep in December. So far i like them alot, they have great traction and they are quiet on the highway. I haven't had them long enough to know how the wear is but im sure they will be good. From what i read they also have the armor protection into the side wall for protection there too. I'm not sure how long goodyear has been making these, but i think they have been out for a couple of years.
