For the life of me I couldn't get them to stop pulling left. We did an alignment check and I was right to spec. We did radial pull rotations on both sides and even put on two new rears. Still pulled to the left. not to mention they suck on snow and crusty packed snow.
I'm now divorced from nitto... Thank gawd

I really like the looks of them! But I'm afraid they will suck in snow and on ice so a deal killer for me...which is too bad

They are sipped, we get some snow/ice here in Oregon, so I will know more soon, having the STT Pros put on my Daughters Jeep today.

They have excellent wet pavement performance.

That review was impressive.

Did not think that any vehicle would be able to climb the 'slick' portion of that 30 degree wall when wet, especially starting from a stop on the incline.

Well, I can tell you after the first few miles on the road, the ride is pretty darn smooth. Actually think they ride better than my STTs that I put on last year.

We may get some more snow/ice, so I will be curious how they perform on the hills in our neighborhood.

I will post some updates after she gets some miles on them.

Really interested in the snow and ice performance...

Yes, advanced tread material, and improved tread design. And I can say that the Pro does seem to actually ride better.

Ten thousand very happy miles on my wife's Set. Running them around 27-28 PSI on highway and 12-15 in the dirt. Fine choice of tires. Just waiting on a set of Duratrac's to wear out (if they ever do)to buy another set of Pro's for mine.

Hey there! Im really leaning towards a set of these Pro's; how have they been in the past couple months since your last review? Any more experience with fresh or packed show? I'm in Michigan so I've been trying to find as many reviews as possible.
Thanks for your time!

I've had these on my JKUR since around last November. I love them. I'm running 37/12.50/17. They ride really well. They aren't very noisy. They do AMAZING on wet roads. It doesn't snow in South Texas, so I can comment on winter performance. I highly recommend them to anyone. I just wish they made them in 40's.

Mine have been amazing in all aspects. Hold really well in the rain, which we have a lot of these days. Darn good in the snow too. Home Run!

Could you stalk a little more about road noise?

I'm I had settled on K02's but really think more than I need. So looking for something maybe "one step down" in price. But I was as quiet as possible as I'm sure 80% of my driving will be in the city plus 2-3 road trips a year.

I have these is 37s and am very pleased with how quiet they are. They are noticeably quieter than the BFG Mud Terrains that came on mine..

A friend has these on her JK. 33" x 15 x something. They drive really well on the road. I bit more noise than the KMs, but not distracting. Great wear too, thanks to the high silica content.
The only down side *may* be in chipping and tread cuts in sharp rocks (I notice this with the S/T Maxx).
*If* so, that's a small niggle in my mind for anyone short of a full on rock hound.

Question for those of you with the 37x17R versions:
Do you notice any "flat spotting" when sitting over night?
How did they balance out weight-wise?
Tia,

I have 35's and haven't noticed much flat spotting. Maybe slightly for a block or so.

I had these mounted a few weeks ago on my stock sahara wheels and couldn't be happier so far.

I had mine installed a few weeks ago and drove them home during a moderate snow fall and in slippery winter conditions and they performed well, I honestly could not tell the difference between the Duratracs which I had on before on my way to the shop in the same storm. They have sipes which helps. I did not try them on icy roads though but i am sure they will be adequate.

For those of you wondering about road noise, they are fairly quiet so far (not much different than the duratracs I previously ran), mind you I've only had them a few weeks and I imagine they will get louder as they age.
