Road trip update. Put about 250 miles on the new tires. They are a little louder than the OE Lats on normal pavement, but they seem to be quite a bit louder on bad pavement. Like the grated concrete sections where road bumps were milled off or on bridges. Just turned the radio up a few clicks, It's not a deal killer for me, but sensitive ears beware. Otherwise they were great. They rode very nice, were't too "slappy" on repaired highway lines (those perpendicular tar lines sprayed over cracks), and handled well. These tires are just a little "darty" in the steering, that's they only way I can describe it. A little tug on the steering wheel and the Jeep moves more than it used to. It's not bad by any means, just different. In fact it might just be that the OE tires were a little sloppy in the steering.
Anyway, I like them.
Supposed to get some snow at the end of the week. Looking forward to it.
