I have a set of Goodyear "Wrangler Aquatreds" on a 1992 Dodge pickup, 4w drive with the Cummins diesel and posi-track on both axles. I use this truck (6,000lbs) to haul a camper (2,000lbs) and pull a 21' boat (4,5000lbs). I think they work great. I have used them in the snow a lot this year and I was very impressed. In fact on the weekend after christmas we had 27 inches of snow on the ground and I ended up hauling my wife and three other nurses to work because their 4 W drive van could not cut it. I also pull our boat in and out of the water on a steep gravel river bank (columbia river at Hanford Reach) and they work great. I dont do much in the mud but when I went fishing last weekend at Priest Rapids nobody else was there because the roads were too muddy, well I got in and out fairly easy. Again these tires impressed me. I have 96,000 miles on the truck, the Michelins wore out at 32,000 and they were ok. The next set was the Goodyear GSA radial and I got 40,000 out of them with no complaints. when I put these Wrangler Aquatreads on I imediatly noticed a difference such as a quieter and smoother ride with every bit as good of traction on all surfaces. The tires are also guarenteed for 50,000 on a full size truck which most tire manafactures wont do. When I repurchace new tires they will be the Wrangler Aquatred.
