    Snow - 9

    Toughness - ?

    Very little to no road noise. Really impressed with the ability to grip on snowy/snow-packed roads. I plow with my truck, and everyone said that it would suck with such a wide tire...well, it didn't.

    Yeah, it's a little on the high side now that I think about it.
    I haven't hit any mud-bogs yet, just some muddy roads with maybe 4 inches of slop on them. The tires got me through. And, they cleaned out pretty well by spraying mud all over the side of my 'burb.
    So, for that kind of driving...probably the AT gets a 6 or 7. Deep mud-bogs...shouldn't even get a rating because an AT doesn't belong there.

    I love everything about them except that they wear too fast and the wider tires arent very good in deep sand.
