Goodyear Wrangler (SilentArmor)

http://www.goodyearwrangler.com/flash.html

If anyone has any info/experience on these brand-new tires from Goodyear please post. If you've seen a review or other information floating around, post that too.

I'm needing new tires soon and these look pretty enticing for the price...50,000 mile warranty too!

They look fine, but after my experience with the Wrangler RT-S I won't be finding out.

Those tires have been out for a long time. Maybe not the "silent armor" crap but those are standard tires on dodge 4x4 trucks. Seem to last a good bit if you keep them rotated. Which make sure you do or they'll start to cup on ya.

ok... i LOVE my tires... they ride smooth and from what ive heard... they are the sh*t. justin from discount tires said they have 70k mile warranty (guess i cant burn these down... gonna be forever b4 i get big tires :( )and are made with kevlar (the stuff in bullet proof vests) - i havent seem the out before - i always go in and drool over rubber lol. but thats the same with any tire - keep em rotated and they will last a good while. granted if they would have been 32s -- 31s even.... i would be much happier. i strongly agree on getting them. they rock.... Quiet and smooth... u can even register em online and get free road side asst (i think its free if i remember correctly) if something happens to them) -- i say go for it... they look good. very versatile. good for highway and offroad. what more can u ask for?

ps... andy... im dissappointed ... ive always been sparki!! i have sparki everything... even on my TRUCK!! which u JUST saw... or were u too busy lookin at me? lol... i am SOOOOO kiddin... luv ye captain!!

If I was going to buy Any tire.. and not spend a ton it would probably be a
toyo.. I really liked my toyo at's. If I was going to buy any AMERICAN tire..
I would buy a cooper or cooper private label(like dean).

Which is why I have Dean Wildcat at's lol. :)
