    Hi ALL this is my 1st post and want to make it simple to read this is MY experience.
    1. GRANDTREK AT20
    1.1 i got 65,000kms out of them a good run. had about 1mm left on it but shoulder wear was beyond bold not worth the risk
    1.2 ok for road not for offroad mud fills them up like clay and sand felt a bit sluggish
    1.3 soft rubber (wear), towards the end of life floating on corners and did not take wet roads well
    Upgraded to
    2. ROADSTONE A/T PRO RA8 (265/65 R17) I got a set of 4 For $209ea fitted and balanced at my small local tire shop
    2.1 road sound is a tad louder then AT20, .... you know when you diving a new road too a old hwy road section the sound difference well its half that if anything
    2.2 rocks found small chips in thread blocks about 3mm by 3mm (did go hard and was old sharp granite rocks)
    2.3 mud surprised me did a good job nice self cleaning
    2.4 sand very happy did not dig but gave enough grip on ruts on 15psi looked a bit low next time 18-20psi (15psi used most of sidewall thread)
    2.5 road puddles what? was that didn't even feel that
    2.6 road grip around corners very impressed firm sticking to road and feels allot harder then AT20
    2.7 5000k on them they look new see pics


    website http://www.nexentireusa.com/tires/su...ian-at-pro-ra8 YES I KNOW THEY ARE KNOW AS Nexen, Roadstone, Roadian and Woosung Tire
    interested in specs http://www.nexentireusa.com/cms_file...A8_Specs1.xlsx
    now my tire guy did say 20yrs back the Roadstone did come out of the same factory as Bridgestone hence the same Tyre font logo (Michelin and Bridgestone Co), He did work for bridgestone for a decade or 2
