Overall I am very pleased and tread looks good enough for snow and offroad use(mild) if I still lived in NJ. I would buy them again if cheap. I usually prefer Michelin or BFG's due to wear.
While these certainly aren't the BEST tires for this vehicle, they are the best for the money. They are not offroad tires, but many of us barely get on a dirt road, let alone off road.....They are markedly cheaper than anything else close, and if they do 90% of what you want then they are a no brainer. Just make sure the shop you by them from stands behind them if they won't balance, shake on the road or whatever. I was against them in the beginning, but over all they have worn fairly well, been thru 2 winters for me, and at 25K miles are about half gone. My 2nd choice would be Continental Cross Contacts.. I have had them on 2 other cars and they have worked and worn well.....
