Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

The Michelin LTX A/T tires that came on my truck were pretty much worn out at just under 30,000 miles. That's actually about the mileage I expected regardless of the mileage warranty or claims. I wasn't unhappy with those tires but kind of wanted something that I thought looked a little better on the truck.

I ended up buying Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar tires with the white lettering. The price was very close to the same as the Michelin tires.

These Goodyear's are apparently a new type that have only been in production for around 8 months or so.

The tires ride great and have a more aggressive tread pattern than the Michelins. I was worried about road noise but honestly there is almost no difference. On some highway surfaces you hear a sound that sounds like a slight wind rushing sound. It's very quiet and completely absent on most pavement. I am particular about these things and so I have to think most people wouldn't even notice. My wife couldn't tell there was any difference.

One photo is of a Michelin tire that was replaced and the other two are obviously the Goodyear replacements.

When a tire is bad on wet roads, they generally are made of a harder compound and last much longer than the soft compound tires. It's a trade off, safety for longevity.

i have been looking into tires as well but i have to say the michelins are really good no issues in rain and decent off road grip get them rotated every oil change. From what i have learned michelins are good and they also, make the bf goodrich tire line all terrain are real good as well.

I had no issues with the Michelin tires. I just wanted to change the look a little with the hope of getting an equivalently good tire. I'll have to see how it goes over time but so far these Goodyear tires seem pretty decent. I drove in some moderate rain, nothing heavy yet, and they seemed alright to me. I've had Michelin tires over and over again on several vehicles now. They've always been good. If the Goodyear's let me down I'll probably just go back to Michelin again.

After 10,000 miles or so maybe I can remember to resurrect this post and give an update as to how they are doing for me.

Kevlar, eh? Do they happen to be bullet-proof? I want a set of tires that will never go flat...

Supposedly the Kevlar makes the sidewalls stronger / more puncture resistant while also reducing the weight of the tires. I just thought they would be good tires for mainly highway towing of my RV and the occasional off-road towing that occurs in some locations that we camp.
