4lbs heavier than the Michelin OEM 18" tires (that wore out before 30k for me).

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

that makes sense the Lats are a touring tire. I had them on an '08 kia sorento and they were great in the summer and awful in the winter. Michelin says the Lats are 37lbs, cooper says 38 for the ht plus. The goodyear is a little heavier, but that seems to have made them handle better, more responsive. BTW in a previous post I meant to address it to phisch, not dave... got mixed up there

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

My wife just replaced the Goodyear Fortera on her 12 GC after 22k with these tires. Goodyear did give her a great price for them as they should for the old tire to wear out so fast. She claims they are better in snow and the rain then the OE. We will see how fast they wear out.

As for the Michelins Lattitudes on my 14 GC, they are junk in the snow.I replaced them after just 2 snow storms with a new set of wheels and DuraTracs, now I can actually stop and go around corners without praying.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure

Been awhile since I posted - I've got my '14 at the Goodyear shop now getting the AT Adventures installed. The stock Latitudes are crap, like others have said. Not bad on dry pavement, but garbage in snow. Terrible on gravel roads too.

That's what would keep me from getting the 20" wheels - my parents just bought a 2015 with the 20's. Going to be fun when they have to replace the tires, there's really not much out there.

That said, the Adventures are great. Bit louder at highway speeds, but I can only tell if I've got the radio turned down and just as smooth as the Michelins. Definitely handle better, even underinflated (shop left them all at 30, I checked when I got back to work). Haven't had a whole lot of snow this year in general, so we'll see if I get to try them out in that, or if I'm going to have to wait and go try them on the service roads through the wetlands down here.

I've been running the adventures for the past 4000 miles now and love them! Handle incredibly well in all-conditions. I up-sized to 265/65/18s and couldn't be happier.

Your spare is kinda useless now isn't it?

If what is in your Sig is your tire size and spare size, they are not the same exact size. The 265/65/18 is exactly 1" larger in diameter (taller). They are the same width though if that's what you meant.

Not really sure where your going with this: I have 265/65/18 wheels installed with a 265/65/17 spare. That's the exact same wheels but with an inch smaller rim.

Eh? If you typed your specs correctly then there's a 1 inch difference in overall diameter of the tire. Try entering those values into Tire Size Comparison Calculator.

Useless for a five wheel rotation, yes. However, is it useless for use in an emergency? That is to say, would it cause damage in a QDII equipped Jeep if one had to drive, say, 50 miles?
