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)

1996 cclb F350 lifted 7 inches on 35s SOLD

New truck 1997 f350 on 37s with 170k

They are up armored hmmwv tires... Not sure how they will work on a civilian vehicle but we were wearing them out in a couple thousand miles driving around 55mph on asphalt in Iraq...

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
