The only downside I found to the firestones was that they aren't siped, so traction on slick paved surfaces isn't as good as some others.
They have a pretty classic tread pattern as far as I'm concerned and can be worn white or black letters out. They are pretty "square" in shape and wear evenly. I had 15,000 miles on the set ony f250 when I sold it and they still had about 1/2" tread depth left. Traction in soft dirt and mud was great, even bottom of a pond soupy mud was not much of an opponent. Sideways traction is only bested by something with more lateral lugs like my swamper iroks or the grip-spurs I posted earlier.
