New Tires

Hey everyone, Just thought i would share a couple of pics of my Jeep with new tires. I bought the Goodyear Wrangler silentarmor. I wanted a On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire instead of a highway tire. The dealership had put new Firestone Destination LEs on, but they weren't aggressive enough for me. I needed a more aggressive tire for my travels through the snow. I put on p235/75R15s so i could stay with the same rims, and I have no lift so i couldn't go to much bigger then stock. It made a huge difference going through the snow with these goodyears compaired to those other tires. Anyway heres some pics. hope you like them.

your white jeep in snow looks like a kind of camouflage.

Your other options besides the P235 are LT235's, 30x9.50, 31x10.50, all will fit with no issue except maybe a couple of washers behind the steering stops with the 31's.
A nice base white color like that is just crying out for a black, grey, blue camo scheme

It's like a blank slate just screaming for some color, or zebra stripes

Thanks, I do like the white also, Around my area you don't see many white ones. There are alot of Red, Yellow, Green, and Black ones but not many white ones. I do like yours alot too. you've done a nice job. I have thought about painting the top to match. It might be something i'll try to do this summer.

So your still looking for different tires? Those are more just a street radial. I'd suggest looking into BFGoodrich All-Terrains or even a Bridgestone Dueler A/T.

No im not still looking for different tires. These GoodYear Wrangler SilentArmor has an aggessive design which gives the BFGoodrich All-Terrains a run for there money. In fact there are ranked 3rd best from the tire rack compaired to the BF Goodrich which is ranked 9th. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey....jsp?type=ORAT

The tires I had on my Jeep when i bought it were more or less just a street radial and thats why i bought these.

That tirerack thing is a bit skewed, I know for a fact that the Pirelli Scorpion AT's are flat out amazing on wet roads, they were by far the best tire I have ever owned. They did exceedingly well off road as well. The only reason I stopped buying them was because Sears stopped selling them and the local Pirelli dealers wanted $175 a freaking tire when Sears carried them for $90 out the door mounted, balanced. They lasted me over 60K. My first set I screwed up and used tire cleaners, wessleys bleach white, and armour-all to make them look nice, bad move, the sidewalls started cracking, the next set I mounted letters in and left them alone, no problem. Right now 3 of my 4 jeeps run BFG AT/KO's and they do well, are pretty good in the snow but only so so on wet roads, 2 of the jeeps have lockers in the back and it gets interesting making a turn at intersections when the whole back end breaks loose and slides around. As far as GoodYear goes I like their MT's. My unit had both GY MT's and BFT MT's on our hummers, both performed well but the GY's were quieter.
The ones you got are fairly new in the GoodYear lineup from what I have noticed so it will be interesting to see how they hold up. The biggest issue is tire pressure, you really have to check it from time to time or they will wear unevenly, You will see the outside lugs start to wear, pump em up. I run my BFG's at 45psi and they wear evenly.

My 1st choice was the bf goodrich tires but i got a hect of a deal on these goodyears. I know they are new to the goodyear line up but i figured i would give them a shot. The dealer who sold goodyears here gave me $200.00 for the firestones that came on my Jeep so i went with these. Only paid $350 to boot, mounted and balanced. The dealership who sells bf goodrich here wouldn't take in my old ones on trade.
As for checking the tires pressure ... i make it a habit to check that with any tire i have periodicly.

I figured I would throw this in here, another white jeep, sitting on 33" Goodyear MT/Rs



I agree, I hardly see white jeeps.

Yeah, I guess, another upside is you can get touch up paint at any APPLIANCE STORE
