sounds like both were caused by inclement weather conditions. im sure these a bunch of tires that wouldve done the same thing.

now im not at all defending goodyear, because goodyear sucks, but im just sayin.

I've mentioned this in a similar thread, but when I worked in a garage, that was the one tire that all customers who had used them hated. We would have people swapping them out for new tires on new vehicles. Never used them myself because of that.

Balled bfgs would work better than rts. I would slide around on grass with awd. horrible tire. Scorpions would work better lmao. I use to be a tire tech at tire warehouse. Wonderful job changing tires in slush outside in the winter. If you want a good tire mickey thompsons. Bfgs are good not as good as mickeys. But there good for 60k If rotated properly. They do tend to gunk up in sticky stuff. But there excellent in snow rain hail sand mud. Thornbird tires are good as well.

Ive had these tire on for about a week and ive noticed a slight bulge outward on the sidewall. There is a bulge inward and the about 6 inches away from the inward bulge, it bulges outward. This a defective tire ?

Our Jeep came with a set of Wranglers on it, no complaints, they are down to about 2/32nds now so I have been shopping for a new set. Right at 3 years on these now.

1996 ZJ - That 2nd Oxygen sensor, yeah some serious butt connectors and heat shrink there, how is that for off road modification! - Still stock.

Used to run Goodyear Wranglers on all our family's 4 Jeeps but they wore so fast from highway driving gave up on them. Seemed like a soft rubber tire and agree with others where I couldn't even go up a slight hill on wet grass w/o slipping all over..

Been running Michelin M/S's for years and really like them. Don't really do much off-roading but they sure come in handy driving our rural areas and coming up my steep/windy 900' gravel drive in the winter months. They don't hydroplane hardly at all and can get 50-60K miles out of a set.

I Bought 4 straight wrangler tires. Took off 4 Wrangler ats tires. I had no issues with the ats tires although i diddnt have them long. Ive always thought goodyear made a good tire, but the problems im having with these, and a set of tracker 2 tires i just bought, leaves me thinking otherwise.
