I’ve used them in soft beach sand while fishing and surfing; run through the deep snow of a record-breaking New York winter; been hub-deep in mud while hunting; and hauled my boat from the unimproved ramps endemic to my area. My truck is also my daily driver, so the Open Country R/T’s saw plenty of traffic, secondary road and highway time. They delivered better traction in all these conditions than the “LT” rated tires they replaced, which wasn’t a surprise given the deep, aggressive treads.(showing little wear yet to date) But what was surprising is that ride quality and noise levels remained excellent during “ normal” driving. I can recommend them for an outdoorsperson, like myself, who needs some off-road capability to pursue passions, without forgoing too much in the way of “city driving” comforts.
