Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor
Initial Review: 35,000 miles on tires

I got these tires for the North Dakota winters, and they have performed very well. I've been able to make it through a foot of snow without putting it into 4-wheel drive, something my old Firestone Destination's couldn't have even dreamed of doing. I will say, though, that even with the SilentArmor technology these are a bit loud on the highway. They really work better as a winter tire though, as I've experienced a reduction of 3mpg in gas mileage on the highway, so unless your going off-road or driving in snow fairly often I would suggest something with a less aggressive tread. If you're doing mostly highway driving, and don't have to worry about copious amounts of snow in the winter, I would suggest getting a set of Michelin LTX M/S2's. If you do a lot of off-road and snow driving, I would definitely suggest getting these Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor's.
