Kept checking them and got to the end of the summer and 6k or so later and theyd gone to 2.5mm so only worn a mm and werent much worse than the summer Goodyears for overall dry grip. Might have been due to the tyre size which is 265/65/17 on the truck but I was surprised for sure.

    Not so much the wear, but the handling is appauling when they get warm

    I think the winter tyre already on one wheel is 185 60 15 so I'll just get one the same size and put them on the front.
