My GC is about due a new set of tires, and I was looking at the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor tires. Has anyone seen these, or tried them? All of my driving is on road, though some of them are more mud than gravel, so I want tires that are mostly road tires, but have good traction for snow and wet roads.
Goodyear has a new tire coming out next month called the Fortera SilentArmor, which is strictly a road tire, but has a 70,000 mile warranty on it. They are advertising it as having high wet traction rating, though.
Any thoughts on these, or maybe recommendations for other good road tires that offer good snow and wet road traction?
I haven't seen those Goodyear SilentArmor's yet but I do like my BF Goodrich A/T KO's Never had slipped on these tires, great on road & it gives off a rugged look to your Grand

To answer your question on the Goodyear, I say go for it. Kevlar belt, big thick rim guard, attractive looking. Sounds like a great tire for your uses. The only thing I dislike about, and about all Goodyear tires, is the steep price. But you gotta pay for quality. http://www.goodyeartires.com/goodyea...ea=Light+Truck

Even though they are fairly quiet on the street they are a mud and snow tire (look at the m+s markings). I know that they are not designed like a swamper, but they are what they are.
I would not use these on my daily driver. I have gotten close to 8K on the set under my wrangler, but the do not have a milage ratting, they track on the street, and they are desogned for offroad use. Why waist the money on them to only run em' on the street just for looks?
