Goodyear has added their new Wrangler All Terrain Adventure With Kevlar tire to their lineup for drivers wanting
both on-road dependability and off-road performance and durability. Built for all types of trucks, vans and SUV's,
the Adventure is available in standard metric sizes or LT sizes that feature Load Range E capability.
Goodyear utilizes a new tread compound that is made to be stronger and longer lasting. This new compound
features a layer of DuPont Kevlar that increases resistance to cuts, chunks and tears. Pro-Grade model tires use an
even tougher tread compound for those needing more heavy-duty load pulling performance. Kevlar also provides added
strength and durability for those who drive more often on gravel or dirt.
Exclusive Durawall Technology further enhances sidewall integrity by preventing punctures, cuts or chunking. A
somewhat more aggressive symmetric tread pattern features open shoulder blocks and siped tread lugs for better grip
on rain and snow covered road surfaces, which is a real plus on this model. They also give the tire increased
traction on rock, dirt and in light mud.
Inside the tire you will find two belts made of high-tensile steel along with a Kevlar layer for added strength
and durability. Pro-Grade tires have two layers of Kevlar instead of one. Sizes ranging from 15 to 20 inches are
now available, and Goodyear stands behind treadlife with up to a 60,000 mile warranty.

Goodyear has put a lot into the Wrangler Adventure and it shows for the most part. The tread on the Pro-Grade
tires is tough as nails with two layers of Kevlar protection. Traction and handling on dry or wet road surfaces is
very good. We especially like how the tire holds on rain soaked pavement. The ride is also not bad at all on those
longer highway trips.
Off-road drivability is solid on most all light-terrains. Dirt, gravel, rock, sand and grass is not an issue for
this tire, making it ideal for those who need a dependable tire for getting away to campsites, the lake or other
out of the way locations. Driving in heavier mud is an area that could see a bit of improvement, but this is an AT
tire and not a mud tire.
Overall, this is a tough and well-performing tire on most surfaces. We give it a rank in the upper half of the
Goodyear provides a 6-year or 60,000 mile tread warranty on the Wrangler Adventure for metric sizes, and a
6-year or 50,000 mile warranty on LT sizes. Tire uniformity is guaranteed for the first year or first 2/32 inch of
Materials and workmanship are warranted for 6-years and include free replacement during the first year or first
2/32 inch of wear. A prorated amount is given for the remaining time period or down to the final 2/32 inch of tread
There is also a 30-day test drive given that allows you to exchange the tires for another Goodyear brand tire if
you are not completely satisfied.
