I've got an '08 EX 4WD AT with the standard Goodyear tires. I don't do any "off-roading", but the E does pretty good on dirt and gravel roads. My only complaint is that it doesn't have that much ground clearance. I had an '88 Nissan 4X4 Pickup for a number of years and was used to having some off road ground clearance and skid plates. I'm going to get some taller tires to hopefully increase the ground clearance a little on my E. If you check the site, there's info from at least one owner who's raised his E. He also has some all terrain tires and it looks good.
