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
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

Comfortable ride for an AT tire
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 all-terrain class.
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 wear.
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 depth.
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.
