Re: Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure Kevlar

I got the Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlars in 265/60-18 on the same black Mopar wheels that Dylansolomon has. I've already put 4,300 miles on them, after recently finishing a 2,000 mile drive from Hartford, CT, to Chicago, IL, and back. For such an aggressive block tread pattern, they're really quiet, although I think that they handle less well on pavement than tires with a radial tread pattern. At times, they feel a little squishy (I keep mine at 34 PSI cold inflation pressure). And the tread blocks stick to the tar they use to seal cracks in the asphalt on interstate highways, so they make a sticky noise as you drive over it. However, the tires did very well on dry pavement and in the downpour I drove through for a couple of hours in PA. In the heaviest of the rain, I felt a little bit of hydroplaning at 70 miles per hour, but it disappeared when I slowed to 65 miles per hour. All in all, I'm really pleased with them, so far.

My OEM Michelin Latitude Tours lasted for 32,338 warm weather miles. I have a set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on the OEM wheels for wintertime driving. The Michelins stayed quiet the entire time, but the shoulder tread blocks were mostly gone within 25,000 miles. I hope the shoulder tread blocks on the Goodyears fare better.

Good question, I had the same question when I called Goodyear. They said the LT tire has a second layer of Kevlar (which probably has no bearing on snow performance), but the rubber compound on the tread is slightly different on the LT line, which affects performance in the snow. Actual performance in the snow is likely negligible, but i'll add to the thread my impressions in the snow in a few weeks.

sorry for resurrecting an old thread but wondering if you have any updates on snow/ice performance as well as noise after putting some miles on them? I am looking for new tires and have choices narrowed down to either these or the Michelin LTX MS/2's.

I asked them to flash the computer and update the tire size so that my speedo and odometer are not off. They said that they can and will do it. I'll report back when I get it back and test it out. We'll see...

Also for the tire size, was the dealer able to do that? My dealer is saying they can't do that on my '14.

Compared to the OEM Michelin Latitudes (18 inch)?

Night and day difference for me.
I haven't had a chance to drive in deep snow yet (this winter has been very disappointing here in the Twin Cities, MN).

Even the wife was impressed with them the first time she drove the Jeep in the snow (she agreed they were worth the $1100 - tires and mounting).
