while driving a
(245/70 R16) on
a combination of roads
I got my Chevrolet Trailblazer (this the SUV Full 4x4, not the 4WD, this is sold in Australia as Holden Colorado7) with these tires, I was not expecting much from them, after we did a 10K road trip around Saudi Arabia with them I was quite surprised of the off road grip and the feel on rough terrain and highways.
We did a very rough descend/ascent on sharp rocks and it only slipped once. we did a lot of Kms on sand and gravel and the tires were looking as new.
After 30K kilometers, the tires still look new, some bits missing I guess from some sharp rocks, but in general I'm very happy.
I keep them below (5 psi) the specified tire pressure as roads are rough here. Not very noisy and they are great when is raining, we passed over some big puddles at speed and there were no signs of hydroplaning.
In general, I give them a good rating, they squeal when turning sharp, but I have never lost control.
Summers here are very hot 50+ degrees, and they haven't developed any cracks near the rim, this with in two years. they were new when I got the car.
They are not the best for driving on dunes, but they are not the worst, they float quite good when the pressure is down.
