Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain
As good as the Silent Armor tires are, the Wrangler Adventure
rates even better. This recent addition to Goodyear’s AT lineup delivers more than capable traction
in a variety of off-road terrain, but it also handles itself very well on the highway. Noise is low
and ride quality is much better than you might expect from an all-terrain tire. A 60K mile tread
warranty is also included.
For toughness and durability it’s hard to argue that the Goodyear
DuraTrac isn’t among the best tires in its class. This tire will virtually go through or over
anything you put in its way, and the tread seems to last forever. Pulling heavy loads is a breeze
as well. To top it off, as tough as this tire is, the ride is surprisingly comfortable on the
highway. The DuraTrac is simply one of the best in the all-terrain class.
As difficult as it is for any tire maker to improve on an already
best-selling tire, BFGoodrich has done just that with the new KO2. Its cut and chip resistant tread
compound is also built to provide a longer lasting treadlife. Tri-Guard sidewall construction helps
prevent all types of obstructions from puncturing the tire and increasing durability that weekend
warriors look for. On the street this is a tire that is built to handle rain and snow as well as
any tire in its class.
The Cooper AT3 delivers a balance of off-road toughness with
excellent on-road manners that few others can match. It handles all types of light duty off-road
terrain without letting you down, while its performance on the highway may surprise you. Noise is
minimal and treadlife is good. It’s easy to see why the AT3 is so popular for truck and SUV
For mild off-road use and better than average on-road performance,
the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain is one of the top tire in its class. Handling is responsive and
traction on wet and snow covered streets is as good as you’ll find. The ride is smooth and quiet
whether in town or on the interstate, and it comes backed with a 50K mile tread
If you're looking for an all-terrain tire that also provides
superb traction on the street, including snow and ice, then the Firestone Destination A/T makes an
exceptional choice. Off-road, this tire goes through everything you put in its way. On-road, you
may think you are riding on a passenger tire with its strong performance. Ride comfort and a long
lasting treadlife round out the reasons why this tire ranks up there among the best in
Combining outstanding all-terrain performance with arguably the
best snow and ice traction among tires in this class, it's easy to see why the General Grabber AT 2
makes the top ten list. It handles mud, dirt, sand, gravel and other terrain with the best of them,
while maintaining a smooth and comfortable ride on the highway. The tread is long lasting and
General includes a 60,000 mile warranty.
Michelin has a number of very good truck/SUV tires in their lineup
and we believe the LTX A/T 2 is one of the best. Not only does this tire make easy work of all
types of terrain off the beaten path, but the ride comfort and low road noise this tire provides is
among best in class. There's a reason why this model is also found as original equipment on so many
different trucks and SUV's… because it's performance is that good.
Nitto is known for their line of performance off-road tires and
their newer Terra Grappler G2 is designed to further enhance this reputation. Building off some of
the features that made the original Grappler one of the better all- terrain tires, the G2 goes
through light off road terrain with ease, while delivering a well refined on road
The Cooper ST Maxx sports the same type of tread toughness and
off-road abilities found in models like the DuraTrac or T/A KO2. Armor-Teck3 construction gives
this tire excellent protection against punctures from rocks, trees and other debris, making it a
very durable and dependable AT tire. On the highway you’ll find the hybrid tread design delivers
solid traction in all types of weather conditions while providing a good ride quality.
