|mudslinger5000||thanks! i was just wondering if they were any good. I do have duratrac's and they are great! but i think for my next set of tires i might go with AT's (undecided on the brand yet). Before I got the duratrac i was trying to get ahold of some KM2's but everyone i mean everyone was out of stock so i went with duratrac.|

As to touching my Jeep, anybody that operates a hoist (what did they use for jack points?) or changes tires (how tight are those lug nuts?) is a risk one has to take unfortunately. When they are busy and working by the job, watch out, no matter where you take your vehicle. I use my torque wrench to recheck tightness and sometimes the lug nuts aren't tight enough and sometimes they are over tightened to say 120 ft.lbs. WalMart here often has a second person check the tightness, which is better than most places, and they use/state 100 ft.lbs.

Seems kinda silly that they would make two very similar tires. The Duratrac looks to be the better tire, but that Authority AT is pretty darn aggressive. I think you can get the Duratrac for about the same price, so I would personally skip over the Authority.

I run them on my 03 Ram 2500 and love them, they handle great and do good in the snow and the limited mud in the horse field.
I havent ran them on a jeep, so it all depends on what your looking for. They are an agressive AT

I think that is a Goodyear tire specifically branded for Walmart ie "Authority". Canadian Tire have a somewhat similar tire branded "Territory" and is made by Goodyear. You may find this Thread interesting and helpful re those two tires. Take a look at Post #16. http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/good...-tj-65963.html
I have the Goodyear "Territory" and find them great so far.

|markzeronine||they look damn good though, I see a lot of similarities to duratracs. The duratracs have about the best reviews of tires I've seen, the walmart tires seem to be hit or miss when reading reviews.|

|ESP||My limited understanding of them and with no personal experience is that they are exclusive to Walmart and therefore less than many other ATs in the same range. That's about all I know. That and I would NEVER buy tires from Walmart or have them touch my Jeep.|
