They are the REAL DEAL! Actually bought a set of tires for my Hummer from BB to replace Goodyear Duratracs 10plys that failed in the first month. The replacement tires that I bought were made in America (Federal 10plys) and they hv survived punishment that the Duratracs at 250.00 each couldn't handle. I still have the tires on today and they preform incredibly. Its been 2.5 years.
