Goodyear SilentArmor Tires

Does anyone have experience with and an opinion of the Goodyear SilentArmor tires? I have to replace my original Goodyear GSA's. I would like a better handling tire. I do not get off-road and would like a good pavement performer.

I ran those tires on my old WJ. They did great in the rain, snow, and off road. They cleared out better in the mud than the BFG ATs. If you don't plan on doing a lot of hardcore rock crawling or mud bogging this tire is definitely a great choice.

I see them frequently on construction crew trucks; I assume they're favored for puncture resistance.

These goodyears are amazing, ive had mine in pure mud (not watery mud) about half way up the differential and while they are not as good as a mud tire, the goodyears went through the mud better than my friend who was following me in his 05 wrangler with the bfg at who had to get pulled out , i got stuck too but i was able to rock it out, the tires are amazing in both packed and deep snow, and they are quieter than the all season tires the jeep had when i bought it. these tires are well worth the price.

I have the goodyear silent armors on my wrangler. I think they are a great tire. Living in North Dakota they are great in snow, they do not have alot of road noise, as for off roading ... most of my off roading is driving accross a field or some wooded trails in Minnesota. I would buy these tires again when the time comes for new ones.
