My experience with dirt roads is that unless you dig down deep enough to actually dig out the ruts, just filling them in will be temporary. They'll develop right back where they were. Just my $.02 worth...

They will be fine for breaking up the hard pack of ABC aggregate stone and bringing the rock to the top. The problem will be they flatten out the road so it doesn't drain. This will leave the water standing and it will soon be full of holes and ruts again. Now then if you were to break up the road, blade all the loose to the center into a windrow, then make one pass and disperse the loose out into the tire tracks and leave a crown in the center, the road will soon pack down with a crown and drainage and will last.

That road looks to be lower then the way it should drain. Can't really tell, but looks like the uphill side is to the left of the pic, the dirt around the trees looks to be higher then the road. It would be a nice scene to spent time on once a week with a grader blade on a 64 Landlord though.^
