Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires
February 25, 2013

These are great tires. In fact, they are the best all terrain tire I've ever used. They go like stink in sugar sand, as long as you air down to 18-20PSI in 4HI. They laugh at fire roads, gravel, shale, and even wet grass and offer extremely responsive steering. Broncos have short wheel bases, and these tires have transformed my truck into a corner carver. They are ABSOLUTELY SILENT. Even after 30,000 miles, they remain silent and evenly worn, unlike a lot of all-terrain tires. Because most of my off-road excursions include sand driving, I need a tire that guarantees I don't get stuck. I have NEVER been stuck with these. One word of caution, though (an I find their name to be a bit of a misnomer): They are not indestructable. Although they offer great proetection against puncture, their sidewalls will quickly get trashed if you rub curbs, as with most passenger car tires. Some side biters or sidewall protection would be nice, as I live in the real world, and not on the sand dunes. The other major advantage to these tires is their light weight, which reduces unsprung weight, increases power to the ground, and increases fuel economy. I have ended my search with these tires, and will be installing a set on another truck of mine shortly.
