The rugged terrain is a decent street tire, lacks siping. I wouldn't put it ahead of the gy silent armor, general grabber at2, Cooper AT3 and ATP for street use but it's not horrible.. It won't offer you much traction offroad and the sidewalls are just 2 ply. I would pass on these if you plan on any kind of offroading. If you plan to just play in the street, take a look at the other tires I listed.
