I have run many different tires and I can vouch very highly for the Silent Armours. Matter of fact I'm getting a new set of 275 70R 18's installed tomorrow. They are quiet, have great bite in all weather conditions, and clean out great. IMHO they look great too :thumb:
"Wrangler SilentArmor tires are Goodyear's premium On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tires designed to please pickup, van and SUV drivers with their satisfying on- and off-road capabilities. In addition to standard-duty Wrangler SilentArmor tires, Goodyear also offers a heavy-duty Wrangler SilentArmor Pro-Grade version for three-quarter and one-ton light trucks that regularly haul or tow heavy loads. All Wrangler SilentArmor tires are designed to handle tough off-road conditions, provide a smooth on-road ride and generate traction in dry, wet and snowy conditions."
I'm very curious what ford will pick as a replacement. I called another local dealer and they didn't know anything about the AT/S's being disco'd. He said his computer was showing available, and when they disco them they come up flagged in the system. Maybe they are phasing them out, and the transition will be slow. in other words... the silent armor will be available soon in our size. Either way I'm going to get that set they have in stock thrown on. Good price... get while the getting is good. I'll worry about the next tire in 40k+.
Yeah opinions seem to be split. I'm either getting "I hate those MF'ers!" or I get "dude, they're great" lol. They're a tire, at a good price, made in the USA, and not everyone hates them. Can't seem to argue with that.
