They are very popular here. I see them on many, many pickups & SUV's.
Never heard of any complaints about the tires. They're not terribly aggressive, and imo a little noisy for a tire that's that mild.
I had a set of Wildcats (also a Les Schwab tire) years ago, but they had weak-ish sidewalls and didn't last me very long. I have since had far too many bad experiences with their customer service at multiple stores, and avoid the chain all together.
I'll buy used retreads before I buy from Les Schwab again.

Check out the Toyo Open Country's, Yokohama Geolanders. They're both great tires as well. The Geolander AT/S does fantastic in ice & snow, but it's not a very aggressive tread.

Awesome, thanks for the opinions! I will have to go to the stores and do some visual comparisons as well then I guess!
