Goodyear Wrangler Radial, Any good?

I have a chance to get a set of 235 75 15 Goodyear Wrangler Radials for a good price. Has anyone had or used these before? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They are inexpensive tires that will last about 30-40,000 miles. New they are $78 each at WalMart. They are nothing special.


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

The ones I had a few years back lasted longer than 40K miles, maybe 50K IIRC, but they are nothing more than a large street tire. They were terrible off road and in the slightest amount of mud.

I had them on a blazer and they were pretty great in snow, bad in mud, and just average all around

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

in my opinion, when it comes to tires you might as well spend some more money and get a quality tire, which wrangler radials, like people have said, are nothing special.....i have B.F. Goodrich long trails and they are working pretty well so far, its my DD and i do everything from highway to gravel and dirt and heavy snow daily.

Really depends on what you are wanting them for. What kind of deal are you getting? My BFG A/T's are getting a lot of wear on them, if I was getting them super cheap I'd probably swap them out. If they were full price or close, I'd pass them by and save up a little more for a new set of A/T's.

As stated above 50k would be pushing it on their life. Decent tires,do the job but are not great for anything other than a DD/VERY light offroad use.

I have one as a spare I couldnt sell for $40 and its brand new... tells ya something. I think walmart has them for $80 a piece new.

I love you CM <3

I'm a huge non-fan of Goodyear.... Wranglers in particular. Can't think of any type of Goodyear tire I've owned and actually liked, come to think of it. I've had way better luck with BF Goodrich. I like Long Trail T/As for pure street use and have been pleasantly surprised by how good All-Terrain T/As are on the street, plus they're an LT (light truck) rated tire with 3-ply sidewalls.

They dont belong on a Stock Cherokee but I love them, My issue with people who say they have traction issues.. drive slower or spend money.
