A few impressions having just driven about 30 miles.

1-First off no clearance issues as expected.
2-These tires are SILENT! Didnt realize how noisy the 420s were till now. Wow.
3-The ride...Well, is this my rig or am I now driving a Caddy Escalade
4-Steering response is very good.

Cant wait for it to rain

Where are you Ride4life686? Get yours mounted yet? Anxious to hear your impressions.

Btw anyone with a DD and wanting an UHP All-season should seriously consider the Motivos...really doubt any other tire will give the all around performance of these for the money, plus the 60K mile tread-life.

I think they look good mounted up. Glad to hear you are liking them.

Still trying to decide if I'm running winter tires or going with these or contis. The atturos I have would work but cannot get rid of the vibration these have and cold weather seems to make it worse. Its the worst vibration Ive had and it is intermitten when it surfaces.

I had a slight vibration when I first bought my jeep with the Nitto 420s. Once I got them RF Balanced it went away. I would say based on the reviews and all the research I did, the Motivos are superior to the Contis. I was looking hard at those but couldn't get past the mediocrity in steering response and stability. Mushy sidewall. One pro review I read on the Motivos said they were night and day better than the Contis on dry. Those may be a bit better in the snow, but overall a good tire as well.

My vreds were butter smooth and never needed to be rebalanced.
