I have the mxv4's on my '07 OBXT and couldn't be happier. Here are a list of pros and cons:

- Quietest tires I've owned
- Good grip in snow (For all-seasons)
- Peformed phenomenally in standing water on the freeway near Seattle, no hydroplaning
- Driven off-road several times, nary a problem
- Very good tire wear, assuming you rotate, align,

- With comfort comes weak sidewalls (at speeds of 90+). If you stay in the 50 - 75 MPH range, you will have no problems whatsoever.
- Mudding in the mountains is quite tough without lugs on the tread.

Simply put, if you are at high speeds (80+) a lot, you may want a sportier tread design. Even at lower speeds (40 - 80 mph) on HARD turns, you will notice sidewall flex. But if comfort and all around grip is your main gripe, this is definitely the tire for you. I'm not sure what they're selling for recently, but I would pay top dollar for these, hands down.
