Goodyear Wrangler tires are for SUV's, trucks, and light trucks. A great tire for getting out in the mud and snow. Whether you're hauling bricks, or kids in the SUV off to soccer, these tires have evolved to be outstanding in terms of wear, traction, and comfort.
There are several models of Wrangler tires. We have researched the online reviews and comments for Goodyear Wrangler MT/R, Silent Armor, and DuraTrac.
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tires utilize DuPont™ Kevlar®. According to Goodyear, the Kevlar reinforced sidewalls increases puncture resistance (for the sidewalls) as much as 35%. In addition to the Kevlar, the MT/R tires have wrap around tread for added traction in deeper mud. Among many other features of this tire, the Wrangler MT/R has tread Guards that resist cuts from stones.
Our Comments of the MT/R: If you have a truck that you do off roading with, this tire may work out very well for you. Note: It's been said that on lighter trucks (such as Jeeps), that these tires can be noisy. Owners of heavier trucks have complemented the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R as being very quiet.
Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires are also made with DuPont Kevlar. This extra layer had a duel role of adding tremendous strength to the tire (Kevlar is much stronger than steel), while it also reduces road noise for a smoother ride.
Our Comments on the Wrangler Silent Armor: Consider these tires if you're not a hard-core off roader. These tires are great for SUV's and even vans. The look on these tires are beefy and cool also. If you have a heavy vehicle you should look into the SilentArmor Pro-Grade. Otherwise, people have been generally happy with the Silent Armor. Owners of these tires state that they have fantastic traction in snow and ice, and that they have a very quiet ride.
Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires use TractiveGroove. This is a new technology from Goodyear that is designed to make the tires work very well in deep snow and mud. The comments and reviews on these tires have reflected very well in regards to tire traction in these conditions.
Our Comments on the Wrangler DuraTrac tires: Like the other Goodyear Wrangler tires, these got great reviews from people who purchased them. This is a great tire for a work truck. If you drive in ice and snowy conditions you'll appreciate the mountain/snowflake symbol. This means that this tire meets the industry standards for severe snow service.
