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.

Select Sand/Mud mode > pin wheel to the left > mash accelerator
