they definitely look nice. i've never had any personal reviews about serious offroad performance though. they are pretty soft so I would guess they're pretty quiet on the street too.

buddy has the 33x12.50r20 on his 07 dodge 2500 and he sucks in our mud out here, the tires dig til they hit something hard and out here it never has hard pack in it...he gets stuck every weekend even with 4wd, and for the road, they sound like my buddies 2.2 s10 with straights...haha...and they are really soft compound...for the price there is better imo
