Best All-Terrain Tire Choices for 275/55R20 Size

Monday, June 30, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Not too long ago, 20-inch tires were rare, exotic and mostly reserved for high-end European SUVs or show vehicles gracing the cover of automobile magazines. Those that were available were ultra high performance tires, often with little to no all-season traction and wore very quickly. This is not the case today. In fact, 20" tires are an option on many popular trucks, SUVs and domestic and import crossovers. 

Of the 20" sizes that are used, one of the most common is 275/55R20. This size is often used on SUVs like the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon. Trucks that commonly use this size include the Chevy Silverado, Dodge Ram 1500, Ford F-150 and can even be used with 20" wheels on newer Toyota Tundras. 

A popular misconception is that one can't find more aggressive On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires in this size. This performance category is one of the most effective in snow traction and light off-road capability in a tire that can be used year-round. Many of the best all-terrain tires on the market are available in this size, such as the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar and Michelin LTX A/T 2.

If you're looking for a more street friendly ride and longer wear, I'd suggest the Michelin LTX A/T 2. It compares quite favorably to a long-time favorite that you can learn about by reading, "BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO vs. Michelin LTX A/T 2." For more aggressive snow and off-road traction, consider the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar as your top choice.

Introducing the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 by Marshall Wisler

Within the past year, many consumers were disappointed to learn that the popular Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor they had grown to love had been discontinued. Always well liked for its good road manners and capable all- terrain abilities, many feared the replacement would not live up to its predecessor.

Goodyear erased those worries with the introduction of their Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar. Featuring a host of sizes and a tread pattern that closely mirrors the SilentArmor, this new tire has indeed lived up to the expectations of Goodyear loyalists and currently holds the top spot in our consumer driven surveys for On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires. More durable than many other all-terrain tires, the tire's internal structure includes twin, high-tensile steel belts reinforced by a spirally wrapped layer of next-generation DuPont Kevlar cord to combine strength with comfort (Pro-Grade belts feature thicker steel cords reinforced by two layers of spirally wrapped DuPont Kevlar cord).

Last August, we had an opportunity to test the tire in Colorado Springs, Colorado, one of America's top areas for outdoor recreational activities. Goodyear provided several on-road and dirt-road experiences behind the wheel of a variety of SUVs and pickup trucks in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains. During our time testing the tire, we came away impressed with the tire's steering response and traction on dirt. It also provided good grip, predictable handling and capable stopping traction in both wet and dry conditions. For a complete recap of our test, take a look at "Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure Preview."

The Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar is made for most light trucks and features and an abundance of E-Load range options for 3/4-ton and 1-ton applications requiring Extra Load carrying capacity.

Initial Review, 2,300 Miles on Tires
June 10, 2014

I have had a long-standing policy of not purchasing Goodyear tires. I fell in love with the Duratrac and chose them over the BFG All-Terrains for my truck. Mistake. For about 1000 miles, I really liked them... then the vibration started. At about 70 MPH, the whole cab vibrates -- I mean, if you leave your shades on the dash, they'll vibrate right off. I've checked the tires for abnormal wear, even removing any rocks larger than a pebble (think pencil lead), but still, the vibration persists. Driving in the rain is okay in terms of hydroplaning, but if I am starting from a stop (backing into the driveway, for instance) and it's been raining, I actually have to put the truck in 4WD in order to avoid spinning. Absolute junk. Never again.

Goodyear's Top-Rated Wrangler DuraTrac

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by Neal O'Neal

Goodyear has really hit the nail on the head with their On-/Off-Road Commercial Traction Wrangler DuraTrac. It's specifically designed for drivers of multi-purpose full-sized pickups, vans, sport utility and commercial vehicles looking for tires that work both on- and off-road. The Wrangler DuraTrac is developed to be a versatile tire that provides off-road competence in dirt, gravel and mud with on-road composure in dry, wet and wintry conditions.

Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rugged chip-resistant tread compound that also guards against chunking and tearing, especially under heavy loads associated with towing. Its symmetric tread design combines large shoulders and highly angled center tread blocks to enhance stability and traction in dry and wet conditions. Self-cleaning, stepped shoulder blocks, zig-zag sipes and Goodyear's TractiveGroove Technology at the base of the circumferential grooves provide thousands of biting edges to improve traction in deep mud and snow. Branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol, it meets industry severe snow service standards and can also be studded. Finally, it features a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip throughout the life of the tire. 

Take a look at what drivers are saying about their experience with the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac:

"Best tire hands down! 63,000 miles and great in all weather conditions. I tow with my truck 80% of the time. They wear and hook up great! Just getting a new set put on now." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2006 Ford F-350 Super Cab

"Love these on my Silverado. Perfect truck tire and the ride is great with very little noise. I've had these in all conditions from dry, wet, mud, sand, snow and ice and they do great." - Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 4WD

Take a look at our survey results and see why the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac is currently the number one tire in its category.

I saw some bad reviews for this tire when I was researching it. I have to be honest that I got decent performance out of these tires. I probably should have retired tehm at 35000 miles but through 35K they were pretty good to me and as a price performer not bas at all. I though they gave a good ride with low noise and the tread wore evenly over the tires. I rotated them as recommended. So if you accept the price performance of 640 for 4 tires that give you 35K miles than I would not shy away from buying these tires. If you want more miles than you gotta spend more money....simple.

I bought these to replace a set of mud terrains that had seen better days. I needed something that had a semi-aggressive tread pattern, mild noise, and good wear.
I looked at numerous all terrains and all things considered the Duratracs had everything I wanted.
Recently I got to really test the nature of this tire. I went to a well known off road park in Texas with a group of friends. I was able to put the tires through almost everything except sand that day:
Rocks-very good grip over large ledges and such. I experienced very little tire slip when climbing over rocks all day. I was able to keep pace with others who ran much more aggressive tires
Mud-I took a rare moment and decided to try out some mud. I got over the top of my tires in a water hole and the mud was flying everywhere. I kept on the throttle and I pulled through with little drama. Just judging by the amount of mud that was in the cab of my open top Wrangler, the Duratracs did just fine.
Dirt-of course on dirt they do their job. Zero complaints here.

Most of my driving is on the road, sadly. I have not had anything negative to say about the on road performance of these tires.I am not expecting to hit 50,000 miles with the monthly trips to off road parks that I make. I am willing to accept that because of how they do perform. I'm hoping by the time I need replacements that Goodyear might come out with an even more aggressive all terrain. Until then, happy wheeling.

Initial Review, 55,000 Miles on Tires
April 22, 2014

I drive mostly on highway and country roads. We fish on beaches In Riverhead NY, and Cupsogue Bch, NY. The Wrangler tires performed excellent. I did not have to air down. I drive on farm land during the hunting seasons on an upstate farm - tires performed well and needed 4WD only on muddy or snowy situations. I got a bug to replace the Wranglers with "regular road" tires for highway, I went to Michelin. My thinking was I do little miles on the beach and farm, and we don't get many heavy snow storms on Long Island so I went for the Mich. all season tire. Bad idea. The Mich. do OK on the Northfork stony beach but on the fine sand Cupsogue Ocean beach I can bog down in the sand - soup-like spots. With the Wranglers I mushed through the very soft spots. With the Mich. I bog down to dead slow just going nice and slow until the sand gets a little "stiffer". I never had to air down with the Wranglers. If I air downed with the Mich, it would be better but I am getting lazy. The Mich. on the slightest mud are terrible on the farm. The slightest amount of mud, the threads fill and the truck slips terribly. Sometimes I have to go to 4WD low. In snow (farm) the Mich. are barely acceptable, if I didn't have 4WD I would get stuck for sure. O.K., I understand the Wrangler and Mich. have different tread designs. I didn't think the travel in sand, a little bit of mud or a little snow on the farm would bring my truck to a stop. I knew I would pay a price for the all season highway tread, I didn't know how big of a price. It was a bad move on my part. The Mich are a very good highway tires but not a combination (the all season) tire no matter how few miles I travel on the sand and farm to meet my needs. When I have to retire the truck I'm going back to the Wranglers. (Comment, over the past 50 years of driving on beaches and farms in all kinds of 4WD from Jeeps to pickups, the 4runner is my favorite, it is a billy goat that never breaks down.)

Installed on an 08 Escape with the new intelligent 4WD. First thing we noticed was the quiet ride. First test was trying to get it stuck in the mud, the tires come with free wench out, and with mud to the doors and the traction control turned off I floored it, mud went everywhere and the truck pulled strait out. Then it was on to the Apache Trail through the Superstition Mtns, very smooth on on the wash boards and truck was always sure footed. We then took it to Sedona, ARZ and did some off-roading. The truck was sure footed and there was no tire slipping going from rock to rock. Loose gravel and pebbles were no problem. On a drive through the mountains in CAL with a foot of snow on a dirt road the truck maintained 45MPH and the Low Traction light never even flickered. Just a note here, these tires do have the severe snow rating. We drove through a summer rain storm in ARK and the truck was again sure footed. There was standing water on the roadways and we maintained 70MPH. Average MPG is 19/23.

WOW... WOW... 1 more...WOW !!! Just got them yesterday (33/12.5/15's/Kevlar) & they have passed every test w/flying colors... Replaced the "Old-Tread" w/the new "Kevlar" & could not be happyer, We could hardly hear them at all @ 75 mph on the Hwy ... Had a "Monsoon" in the afternoon & went for a "Test-Ripp"... Great over standing water on road... Than we went to the local wash & my 98 GRAND CHEROKEE (ZJ) 5.2 AWD/Auto has never went up that stuff as easy before... They "Dig" & "Float" over the softest sand... Than we headed for the MUD...WOW !!! I thought the old MT/Rs did good, @ 20 lbs, but the "New Tread" @ 36 lbs is WAY BETTER... I hardly hit the skinny-pedal & they were "Flinging" & they track fantaitic, No "Drift" in 6 to 12++ inches of "Sloppy Mud" (That same mud filled the old tread to the point of no control & my JEEP would go where it wanted) We had total control... I would guess with the "Extra Tread" down the center of the tire these will last about 3X longer or more than the old tread... We have 1 more test left for today, "Aired Down" on the "Rocks" (Witch is where we spend most of our WHEELIN time) & if they handle the rocks like the old tread I know I will be very pleased... (I will up-date when we get back if I can) As acting VP. of the local Off-Road club, I will tell everyone I know that these are "The Ones" to buy if they are in need of "New Shoes" for ANY of thier rig's...WOW !!!

Initial Review, 8,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

Just moved to Michigan this year from the south... Surprise! Worst winter in 20+ years. I bought these tires as a possible alternative to dedicated winter tires due to the high mileage my car sees. A lot of other reviewers were claiming 70,000+ miles and that sounded great with a tire that could handle winter weather. (they have the mountain/snowflake on the side) I braced myself for a noisy, bumpy ride as the car came with a Michelin touring tire originally. I can honestly say, these tires are quieter and ride almost as smoothly as the Michelin's. That said, the Michelin's were worn when I replaced them so I don't hold the noise against them. These tires have never left me stuck or stranded and I didn't usually spin or slide unless I was trying to. A few times I had to disable the traction control to let them spin and clear. This was only in slow speed situations like cutting fresh tracks in 8+ inches of heavy wet snow. Not sure you can ask anymore for a longer treadlife all-terrain in my opinion. My biggest complaint in the 8,000+ miles I have had them comes from the fact that they tend to "catch" grooves or seams in the highway which can be unnerving when the road is icy. I noticed it the first day I had the tires and now I have gotten more used to it and it is less of an issue but at first it did get my attention. Overall, I would and already have recommend these tires. Not the best winter solution, not the best off-road solution, definitely not the best for mpg's or handling performance. Just a really good mix of life, traction, and so far low noise.

I believe they are rated for 50,000 miles and since it's not my daily driver anymore I've waited and pushed them through the winter. I'm looking at Michelins that are rated to get 70,000. Only because rating difference and I recently bought a set of Michelins for my car and I'm extremely impressed with them.

When I was looking at new tires everyone was pretty much in agreement that these were 'the' tires to get for a Jeep. And they were right. I have been extremely happy with them. Half of my daily drive is on gravel (roughly 16 miles) and it amazes me how well the tread has held up, as gravel just eats the tread off most tires.

I don't think that there is any additional road noise on the highway than the stock light truck tires my Jeep originally came with, which surprised me since these have a much more aggressive tread.

I'm getting ready to buy a new set for this coming winter and by then I should have close to 45,000 miles on these.

I drive about 75 percent of my miles on the highway. But the 25% I drive off road will shred a regular tire in no time flat. I drive on caliche roads with various size rocks and sometimes huge holes. Most 6 and 8 ply tire i have tried over the years would only last about 20,000-22,000 miles. I put 55,000 on a set of Wrangler SilentArmor 6 ply tires and still had a good 8-10,000 miles left when I got a new truck. I never even had a flat even though I regularly would drive over cactus, mesquites and sharp rocks. As long as Goodyear keeps making these tires, they have a loyal customer.

I drive a 97 Grand Cherokee ZJ with 4" of lift and installed these tires in a 31x10.50x15 size. They've exceeded my expectations in every respect. They're quite for an aggressive tread pattern on the highway, handle well for the tread pattern in highway driving, and perform excellently off road. I primarily use my Jeep for off road use but it does drive upwards of 200 highway miles one way to different parks. I've also used it to travel to work when the weather is too bad to travel in my other vehicle. They handle very well in the snow, packed or deep, and even do well on ice. For a tire that's not a mud terrain tire, they do surprisingly well in the mud but I wouldn't say it's a replacement for a traditional mud terrain. I haven't had them in sand so I cannot comment on their sand capabilities. I only have about 5k miles on them so far but they seem to be wearing well and evenly, if they're even wearing at all yet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good all around tire for a vehicle that sees a multitude of uses. I'll most definitely be purchasing another set when the time comes.
