Goodyear Vs MICHELIN

Hi everyone, looking into tires for my 2014 jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and wanted to see if any members here are running either brand of tire. At this point i'm looking at the Goodyear Wrangler® All-Terrain Adventure With Kevlar® or
MICHELIN®LTX® A/T2. If anyone can tell me anything about either as far as ride , road noise and traction . Would love to hear some feed back

thanks
ken

Re: Goodyear Vs MICHELIN

I am running the AT-2's on my TH and love them. ran them on my Liberty CRD as well. They run smooth, wear well and they give you a little more bite. I do take them off in the winter and replace with snow's simply because I have found them slippery in the snow here in NH. Good luck, do yourself a favor and stay away from G-Y, I have just never had good luck with any of them, Michelin all the way.

Re: Goodyear Vs MICHELIN

I've had both G-Y and Mich with good results. There is just something that puts Michelin on the top of my list. Even my
M-B dealer told me to use Michelin for a better ride and less noise. They always give me great wear.

Just my $.02 worth, thats all

I have had great luck with Goodyear Duratrac tires on Wrangler in the past so I will be ordering a set for our Trailhawk when we get it.

Re: Goodyear Vs MICHELIN

Currently running DuraTracs on the EcoDiesel. I ran a set of the new KO2s for 6 months, and while they were a tough tire with great winter characteristics, I found the ride to be less than ideal. Switching to the goodyears also saved me 11lbs per tire - decrease in mass/rolling resistance netted me me a increase in fuel economy. The downside is that the goodyears are quite noisy in the 30-45mph range
