How bout Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor? good or bad?

Well come to find out, i cant get the T/A KO's for $100 each. Talked to the owner of the shop, and he said it has to be a typo.

So, after a lil bit of comparison shopping I have come up with these two important points regarding thos tires:

1) hardly no one carries them
2) im looking at about $900 for a set of 4, and I aint working.

So much for THAT idea, anyways, a guy at the ford dealer, suggested I look into the wrangler silent armor tires since their a bit cheaper. Looking around online, they seem to have pretty much all positive reviews,

so any thoughts on this?

have you checked summit or 4wheelparts? they are usually pretty good on prices and i believe 4wheelparts has free shipping right now or if not they both do from time to time... if you get it from either of tem be sure to call them since they will usually knock the price down a little

No doubt, there a good tire hands down, as the saying goes you get what you pay for....I just thought the silent armors were more then the bfg. Personally from experience i like the BFG AT/KO better due to the looks of the tire and winter traction
