We had some on a 97 f350 and they were fine. I know the military 36s wear down fast though. We had an issue getting them to bead (13.5 wheels may have been the problem lol)

we would blow them before tread was far down, to much debris, to much crap, and to many freakin I.E.D's, and they werrr pretty good down the road, we followed an iraqi convoy at 70 mph, loads of road noise, but they had good traction for having 12k on top of them
