Replacement recommendation for GY Silent Armor

I need to replace mine and found they were discontinued. I loved them!

80% of my time is highway/roads with 20% on muddy farm roads.

Any comparable replacement recommendations that are as highway quiet as the silent armor?

Thanks guys!

Mark

The Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar is basically the direct replacement for the SilentArmor. It's available in the following 17" sizes (if you're going to keep your factory wheels) that are near enough to the stock 32":

265/70R17
LT245/75R17 (likely the size of your stock SilentArmors?)
LT235/80R17

Other popular All-Terrain Tires of the same ilk:
Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac
BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2
General Grabber AT 2
Toyo Open Country A/T II
Nitto Terra Grappler G2
Cooper Discoverer A/T3

These are just a few popular examples. Just about every tire manufacturer is going to have one or more premium A/T offerings. Some test and review better than others. It's best to check out the manufacturer web pages and seek out user reviews to determine the strengths and weaknesses to see which one best fits your needs and budget.
