I got the Essex surefoot T-Hawks on, 28X10X14 and so far so good. They run fine, and no flats... I've run essex surefoot 589 pattern for many years, the T-Hawks are smoother due to tread pattern and lack of 1.5 inch lugs. Clearly any essex surefoot tired is going to be rougher than stock 6 ply rubber tires, but i don't think they are too rough at all. I run in varied terrain behind bird dogs, i think these will be good. I'll report back at the end of quail season.
