Goodyear Wrangler Authority A/T Tires

WalMart has this new Goodyear tire. It's the most aggressive looking A/T tire I've ever seen. Don't know all the particulars yet as all the signage and prices weren't yet displayed on the racks. Only one 15" size, 31x10.5x15. Lots of 16"and 17" sizes in "C" and "E" load ratings. The tire has good spacing between the lugs, almost on par w/ an MT. Big side lugs as well. Don't know anything about mileage expectancy. Pretty sure it's a WMart only tire. Go check it out. Sorry no pics

What vehicle comes stock with 31/10.50/15?

I know them come in 16 sizes but not 15's

I don't think the Walmart I go to cares. They have over size tire mounting fee's so Im guessing they'll do anything.

I just purchaced a set of Goodyear Wrangler Authoritys from Wal-Mart. 31-10.50R15. Great lookin tire. I think they are wal-marts private label for the duratrax (they look the same). I was wonderin if any body else had any reviews for on road use. So far they are great off road. I have not had them at highway speed yet, any help would be great. Thanks

I was just lookin at these also. I think they are wal-mart special but they are not the same as the duratraks. They have a slightly different pattern and lak the special pattern in between the tread. Goodyear claims this pattern in the valleys helps clean the tread.

Just my .02

Thinkin I might get a set though in a couple of weeks.

I'd like to get a set for my XJ this winter. My local wal-mart has one on display but no price or size information next to it. Anyone know if these are available in 30x9.5/15?

I think they look a lot like the Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs somewhat.

hey im a tech at a walmart tire lube express. the tire is good quality from what i hear and im going to be putting them on my truck within a week or 2. there are a walmart private label and arent available in too many sizes but you can find out exactly what sizes in the store. also, we can mount tires on your truck no matter what size they are. as long as th tires do not rub and are all the same size(if your not buying 4) then we can mount them. hope i helped you out guys.

I was checking these out at WalMart today, the only 15" they have is the 31x10.5 for $130/each.

I am very seriously considering these when my current Firestone Destination MTs wear out (if they ever wear out, these are the longest-lasting MTs I have ever seen!).

Cheers! M2

Jeep owners have an easy fix for that...don't have your doors on when you take it to Walmart!

Seriously, I just got a set of these installed today, and they don't care as long as the tire fits the rims.

Cheers! M2

Here are some initial observations...

These tires are quieter and smoother than the MTs they replaced; but I don't think they are as quiet as normal ATs. They seem to flex a little more than the notoriously stiff-walled Destinations I had on there, but nothing severe, it is just something I have to get used to. They look great on the Jeep and I really question the 'AT' monicker on them, here is a pic of my new Authority (on left) next to my old Destination MT (on right)...



...pretty close, eh? I would almost call it more of a milder MT than an aggressive AT!

Oh, and while this pic may give the impression that the Destination MT on the right is wider than the Authority AT on the left, in reality the tread-on-the-ground width is the same (about 9.5")

Cheers! M2
