    I was wondering if this would be the right tire for me. I do alot of highway driving, but also have to go on dirt/muddy roads every weekend, which get very bad in alot of rain. I travel to Colorado and New Mexico often so i would like something that is good in the snow for a little bit of climbing.
    I live in Oklahoma.

    I have heard that they are Goodyears attempt at a high quality SUV "touring tire". I have also heard that they last forever and wear like iron.

    This is how Goodyear rates it on their website: (1 to 10)

    Dry Traction - 10
    Wet Traction - 10
    Quiet Ride - 10
    Snow Traction - 8
    Off-Road Traction - 4

    This is a good highway/touring tire. If your dirty/muddy off road is very bad like you say, you may want to fine something with a little more space in the thread design.
