I have Destination A/T's and have wheeled them hard enough to need my winch a couple times. I'd guess around 30% of my time is offroad recently. They do just fine light off road and in heavier off road so long as it's dry. Snow/Ice grip is pretty good except when muddy under the snow (it crabs sideways). They're also great on the road. Their downside is in greasy or muddy conditions. They pack up and don't dig. I gotta spin them hard to keep'em clean but then I'm pinballing up stuff instead of climbing or I'm winching up it.
I'm currently getting Duratracs put on as I type this. The more agressive AT tread while having better road manners than a mudder is what sold it. Fingers crossed on the whole sidewall issue but nobody I wheel with has ever cut a sidewall. But I doubt I'd be going this aggressive on a mall crawl/ 5% offroad situation. Probably have gone BFG AT instead.
