We purchased a set of 4 tires from Les Schwab a few years ago now and at the time my husband signed on the dotted line, I felt they were overpriced. However, we have since benefitted from years of almost seamless driving, some of which has been Interstate and my first comment would be to say that these tires have given an almost luxury-feel drive to our pick-up truck.They handle extremely well on the fast roads, in the snow and off road - we have even hauled a trailor with two quad bikes and a further full size qual bike in the flat bed. We had an incident on one occasion whilst driving on a smaller road which was gritty and stoney. We happened to drive over a screwdriver which punctured the tire and the first we knew was a hissing sound coming from our rear. My husband realised what had happened and we were able to come to a slow halt with no swurving or loss of steering in spite of the stoney conditions. I was amazed at the handling of the vehicle with these tires when it could have gone horribly wrong. Having purchased them from Les Schwab there was an element of guarantee which was pleasing. Having been through this incident, I know now why they are a little on the expensive side and next time, I would be happy to pay every penny.
