Too bad they don't come in 32's or I'd get them. Looked pretty good when I was at Wally World the other day.

goodyear wrangler authority

I bought a set of 31-10.5-15s for my f-150 I went dove hunting last week and cut the side wall on a rock. that sucks since its concidered an off road tire with no warranty. I had a standard old set of goodyear wrangler 235/75/15s that came on the truck and I put em through hell. In fact i sold those tires to someone for $20 to save on disposal and help someone out. any how i upgraded to a bigger tire and now i have 3 tires for my huntin truck I do not recommend the goodyear authority the side wall will leave you stranded.

I just added these. Great price for an aggresive hybrid. I will try and give feedback on how they perform.

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

It depends on the store actually. I work in a Walmart tire center and our manager is quite picky about mounting the wrong size. If you can bring your rims in separate though its no problem. I plan on getting these as soon as I can. They seem like a really good tire.

That's ok, Walmart isn't really my first choice for automotive repairs or tire installs anyway.

Pat your manager on the head and tell him it's ok.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

That was exactly what happened to me so I just left them my rims and came back with my F250 to pick them up.

I have had them a week+ so far and have really enjoyed them. We had a major rain and these tires do very well on wet roads. We did some trail riding to include a little mud, nothing major, and sugar sand and the wally world tires did just fine. The road noise is a mild hummm that even the Mrs. doesn't mind. All good so far.

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")

i was just wondering how you liked the tires im getting ready to put some on my 06 jeep

Glad to find this thread here.

I saw them today, and i'm within a month of getting new tires on the WJ.

Anyone else get them since this thread, and have any observations?

The only thing that worries me is the 2 ply sidewall, but the Long Trails I have now area also 2 ply, and i havent killed them yet, so it shouldnt be an issue.

They're the most aggressive of the tires i'm looking at, considering another set of Long Trails, Dualer AT's, and another goodyear "private label" called the armortrac, which is a Sam's exclusive.

The sidewalls pretty weak duff. I messed with it at a walmart not too long ago. For 130 bucks you can get a non walmart special tire that is the same price on tire rack....duratrac

pretty weak compared to?

Its a 2 ply sidewall, same as alot of other AT type tires. Of course, how thick the plies are is the issue.

Now, is the "pretty weak" your own personal experience, or observation, or what you read on the internet.
