Keep us updated on how theses tires perform over time. I had Goodyear Wranglers on my 02 GC and they held up very well.
Looks great on your Jeep!

Goodyear also has some of the worst quality control in the industry
Funny, we have had Goodyear tires on my wife's Toyota RAV V6 FWD for a year now and no problems at all.

In fact they replaced Yokohama tires that my wife thought were really good and these are even better. Better snow traction and better wet/try traction. I can attest to less torque steer than with the Yoko tires.

I'm only at 18k, but these AT Adventure tires are at the top of my list when it comes time to replace.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

Road trip update. Put about 250 miles on the new tires. They are a little louder than the OE Lats on normal pavement, but they seem to be quite a bit louder on bad pavement. Like the grated concrete sections where road bumps were milled off or on bridges. Just turned the radio up a few clicks, It's not a deal killer for me, but sensitive ears beware. Otherwise they were great. They rode very nice, were't too "slappy" on repaired highway lines (those perpendicular tar lines sprayed over cracks), and handled well. These tires are just a little "darty" in the steering, that's they only way I can describe it. A little tug on the steering wheel and the Jeep moves more than it used to. It's not bad by any means, just different. In fact it might just be that the OE tires were a little sloppy in the steering.
Anyway, I like them.
Supposed to get some snow at the end of the week. Looking forward to it.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

Tires work in the snow! Got about 8" of heavy snow on the ground. These tires are awesome.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

Hey Dave,
I just put a set on my 2014 Grand Cherokee and all your observations are right on the money! They are great in the snow and the handling is much better. Much greater steering response. I think that's what you were describing. The noise factor is also as you stated. Not a great increase overall, but seemingly more sensitivity to road surfaces than I remember with my old tires. I did notice more firmness in the ride. Probably more robust sidewalls, hence the better steering response. I don't drive very aggressively and I wanted to minimize the harshness so I put them right at recommended 33 lbs pressure. I only have a couple of hundred miles on them and I was wondering if they will kind of break in and maybe soften the ride a little. How are yours. Thanks for the posting and any input
Steve

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

The OP red GC looks awesome with these shoes!
Good to hear good reports on these tires as I have been pondering same change in place of the Lats.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

I've had mine on now for a couple thousand miles, but only a little snow.

In the 'greasy' snow they grip really well, except if you start going sideways then they just keep going, but I think that would happen with any tire.

Just drove through a cold blowing snow storm last night (very windy and gusty with blowing snow). Had the cruise on until I saw patches of snow sticking to the road, then took off the cruise. Never once felt any loss of traction.

I had Discount Tires mount the white letters in. White letters out looks too 80's for me.

Lost mileage, but then again a 4lb heavier tire with 1" more tread width on the road will tend to do that...

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure
