Curious about what your experiences with them has been, good, bad, or indifferent.

They're ok until you try to go in reverse. 










Sorry.

Were you looking at a specific type/brand?

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I’d be concerned about road noise / harmonics.

But been running big ones for decades and they do work in the mud!

From appearances I like the tread look for mud and snow.

The only directional tire that I regularly see is the Goodyear Wrangler MT w/Kevlar.  Jeep folks seem to like it, but i have never run it myself.

I am currently running the Cooper STT Pro on the F350.

For basic road stuff i like them. Rotating them  is more difficult. I personally thinknthey make the most of Traction and wear. Up in Canada they have a semi truck tire they sell or cap that is directional that sells well.
