ive had thronbirds on different vehicles that ive owned over a period of probly 5-6 years. they still have tread though lol. idk how many miles they have on them. theyve never been on a heavy truck. only a bronco for a short while, a toyota and a jeep wrangler. these tires do way better aired down. what vehicle do you have? i wouldnt really recommend these tires personally. they suck in mud and snow. i love the looks of them though. if you have a locker though it doesnt matter theyll do pretty good if you do. they fling the mud though. if your looking and a good mud tire the bogger for sure. nothing else imo. i had a stock f150 with a str8 six and went through more mud than alot of rigs that had welded rears. imo the bogger is by far the most dominant mud tire thats dot approved.
