Goodyear Wrangler Authority. Any Good?
 
Anyone running the Goodyear Wrangler Authority Tires from Wal-mart? They have 31x10.50x15 for $148 and they look like the Duratracs. I can get 5 for $740 plus tax.I really like the looks of the tire but don't know anyone who has them.....I hate to buy them just because there cheap. :nonono:

Thanks,
Littlejoe

I know some guys at work that have them in that size, and they really like them. other people I've spoken to about them liked them too. I almost bought them, but tire rack put the Duratrac 33x12.50x15s on sale $165 a tire plus the $80 rebate, just b4 I got the walmart tires, so I went with the Duratracs.

I've got them and I love them. Done quite a bit of off-road with them and have about 80000 miles on this set. Very happy with them. If you want pictures let me know..

I bought tires yesterday and almost bought those but with no lift I think they’re to big. I hear they will work but with out a lift I wanted smaller. I think if they offered a 30x 9.5 I would have purchased the Wrangler Authority.
I went with the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A - P235/75R15/XL 108T from Sam’s.
$133.42 plus mount and life time balance minus $50.00 for a 4 tire purchase was $584.25

I'm sure those will do great in the rain and maybe in the snow too. but they'll get clogged up easily if you encounter a mud hole or clay.

the Authority's and Duratracs will do great off road

Yes, I know, I had been eyeballing the Authority's for months and when the price came down I almost grabbed a set. I have 31 Ĺ tires on the Jeep now and with no lift itís just a Mall Crawler.
I was tempted to go with the $82.00 Wal-Mart Wranglers, I'm hoping the TA's work out much better.

You'd be surprised at what your jeep can do without a lift and some aggessive tires 30s or 31s. With the lift and bigger tires just comes more clearance for more challenging stuff.

Had mine a year...some mud, trail and highway driving. I enjoy them, no signs of wear and still have nubbies on 'em!

Those look sweet.

What size are they? I ordered 31x10.5x15's and they won't fit even though numerous people on this site said they would. They rub in the front end, easy fix by adjusting the stops but they rubbed on the driver side rear spring perch. Not good.

I have em! I love em! Great Price too!

Just got em yesterday and they completely changed the look of my jeep (for the better). Have not taken them offroad yet but based on what i had, which were bald straight up street tires, im sure they will be lightyears better. Also give just a little hum which to me is a good thing.
