These tires were original equipment on my 2013 F150 crew cab 4x4 with 5.0 V8. From the start I've been extremely happy with the ride quality, traction, and overall experience with these tires.
They do well in rain with zero hydroplaning in my experience. They have excellent braking manners and good handling in corners and turning.
I only drove in light mud that was an inch below the bottom of the rim but I had no problems. I visited my folks in PA and drove through 2 feet of snow. The tires pulled me through but it took throttle to get it done. I didn't mind as these tires do so many things very well.
My one gripe is the dryrotting. At 1 year old the tires had dry rot between the tread. Now at 3 years and a tick over 48k miles the sidewalls show dryrot too. I've talked to others who experienced the same thing. If not for the dry rot I'd rate the tires higher. I expect more from a higher price tire coming from a well known manufacturer. I sill recommend these tires.

I bought these tires to replace TSL Truxxus MT's which were good in snow and mud but noisy and wore fairly quickly.
The wet traction with the Grabber II's is very good. No hydroplaning. They do well in snow, stopping, turning, and accelerating with ease if you aren't crazy with the throttle or brake pedal.
I've only been on hard dirt so the verdict is out on wether they are good off road or if the carcass is tough. They do pick up pebbles and chuck them into the fenderwell which is a small price to pay for a good all-around AT tire. My truck is an '02 Silverado Z71 X-cab with a Detroit locker, CAI, cam, headers, tune. Shop around, prices vary on this tire.

I have a set of 26" mud lites on my '02 Prairie 650 4x4. The quad is piped, jetted, and has a Dynatek CDI. In soupy mud up to the bumper I have no problem blasting through by going full throttle with the diff lock engaged. The tires are not road or hardpack friendly although it doesn't bother me too much. I went through a rock field and managed some impressive hillclimbs too. My gripe with these tires is the fact that I have 3 plugs in my right rear and 2 in my left front. None were from nails or glass. IMO these tires are for wet environments and quads with the power to sling mud. These shouldn't be considered if you are concerned with punctures or are trying to mud a little 250cc baby quad. Just my .02.

I had these on my Vinson 500. With hi-comp piston and clutching turning 26's was no problem. The tires showed little signs of wear at 800 miles. Riding in PA on coal, shale, granite, and mud I had no punctures. Can't say the same about the Mud Lites that came on my latest quad. Would buy these again as they are tough and have a predictable ride.
