I agree.I have had the same tire on my rig for several months now. I really do not find them to be loud compared to other MTs I've had in the past and I have no rubs anywhere. I am thinking your rub has more to do with the wheel than the tire. Mine are mounted on stock steelies.
yeah.. great in SNOW.. but on the icy, slippery roads they're brutal!... I'm in Ontario, so very similar road conditions to you I assume....They sure do make you change your driving style if you don't want to slide into everything you see!:jester:So how are they on Snow? Lots of Snow!
