Not a bad summer/rain pattern. Pretty useless for snow though.

I've got the old 225/75r15's for that. Thinking these for summer on the 10 spoke Cherokee rims.

Why not good for snow if I may ask? Other than they are not a truck tire, so not as open. They are M+S rated...

I guess seeing them in person might make me think otherwise, but the narrow notches on the edge aren't very self cleaning for snow.

That I do see what you mean. has better spacing than I have seen on some tires. Not as good as the truck tires I have on it now. Was thinking these for for the summer and occasional mud if I ever get to go fishing.. But then Kansas Clay is a sticky mess.

They appear to be good all around tires. The are all-seasons they they will do okay in anything, but probably Great in nothing! :) That's just the nature of the beast. If you don't wanna have to switch wheel setups around all the time depending on the driving you want to do then they should work well. Coming from some sport cars in the past I know a lot of guys run a sticky summer tire and they put on a set of winter wheels for the 4 or so months that snow may be on the ground. I've never been able to afford that so I've always grabbed all-seasons.

I think you've seen the tires on Kammy now. and I know they do well in the mud and snow. They are getting weathered though.
Thought keep them for the winter or playing and these for better mileage and ride in most cases.

Thought being a 4x4 car it would make these do wonders in the rain that can come through here.

They sound like well rounded tires (no pun intended). The reviews are good as well.

Going to start saving some money to try and get them before sale is up. Have until March and still have to get the car repaired but Tires are needed for a car to move. Reasonable sized tires may help the worn out motor live for a bit longer.. Or the next motor to really lay the rubber down...

those tires would be good in light (4" or less) snow, and on icy/snowpacked roads. all the sipes on them. make them even better on ice by having them siped extra.

I don't think bf Goodrich tires are made in china yet. gotta keep an eye on that. I wont put Chinese parts on anything that has anything to do with safety. I despise using Chinese parts for ANYTHING really, but sometimes, theres no other choice.
