Just like the kijiji ads, I always wondered how people got threads stuck in their tires? I guess my tread isn't tight enough to fit thread into?

They are also loaded with sipes and do extremely well on wet pavement, and they're fantastic in snow. They actually got me home the back way (unplowed dirt roads) last year when they shut down I-70 due to large amounts of snow and accidents and I didn't want to waste 3+ hours of my life sitting there until they opened it again. As a bonus they also have really low rolling resistance. I average the same gas mileage as people that are running summer highway tires on their FJs.
I run the ATP's, basically the same tire and like them. I get the same fuel mileage with them as I did with the 4ply crappy all seasons. The tread holds up well but still decent traction. The wet traction is ok but the dry pavement traction could be a lot better. Any more than 50% throttle and they will spin from a stop. Probably not as much of a problem in a heavier pickup. Like I said before they are good in snow and ice. They are good for the money.

Fellow xi driver?

I am VERY seriously considering an Audi Allroad... Anyone have one, or know anyone who does?

I bought a 2013 allroad, and I like it. I'd recommend, getting a box for yours roof, if you go/have gone this route.

I've had an 2012 allroad for 7 years and love it. The maintance can get pretty bad at times but some how I keep on driving it. What can I say the Quattro sticks and the twin turbo v6 goes especially after a chip tune.

I just have 1 vehicle now for daily driving, work truck, and snowboarding. 2014 Chevy Silverado z71 with 2" leveling kit and 275/65/18 Duratracs. I never really liked goodyear tires, but the duratracs are pretty sweet so far. Can't wait for winter.

Damn, you got the super early Release on that, 5 years before the year model was out?

Vajohn, I love the duratracs. The best true all around tire I have had. From snow and ice to highways to dirt trails.....

General Grabbers AT2s. Dirty and mean af. I'd also consider Good Year Tripletreds but they're a bit more pricey with less off road ability

Oops, typo. I have the old 2001-2005 model, I meant to say 2002.
