Here is a link to view pictures of these tires.
Two of the tires are at 7mm (or 9/32) tread depth and the other two are at 8mm (10/32)-
The side lugs are still thick on all four.
There is a slight cosmetic defect on one of the tires as seen in a closeup- This was due to an off road excursion when I first got them! It's not very noticible at all when mounted-of course you could always mount them white lettering in as well.
These tires have been rotated faithfuly every 6,000 miles. They are an excellent mud and snow tire and handle extremly well on the street. I bought them based on the reviews I read, being that I wanted a good offroad tire that still road well on pavement and wern't too loud.
I am running the new Interco SS-m16's now and have to say that the Nokians were much better in the snow IMHO (have'nt tried em in the mud yet)- The only reason I didn't stick with the Vativa's this time around is because they didn't make them in a 37x13.5 and with my new 3" BL I wanted to go bigger.
$300 is firm- cmon guys- These jokers cost me over a G and still have some life in em!
