If you don't do any of that the only benefit these tires give is appearance. Otherwise they are loud, lost a MPG or two, and they probably will wear fairly quick.
That's what I've heard from other people that use them and they don't perform very well in the snow, which is a deal breaker for me right now. Although it does look good, I can hold out for something a bit more realistic at the moment.

Cheers for getting them though and let us know how it does when you hit some trails.

I had them on my Rubicon prior to this vehicle so I know exactly how they'll hold up offroad, and that's pretty damn good!

As for the snow...I have read that over and over again and I truly think it's blown out of proportion. Between the 4wd and traction control they don't slide at all. MT's are generally not preferred for snow or your best option but I think people blow it out of proportion.
