Wrangler UltraTerrain AT

Has anybody heard anything or have any experience with the newer wrangler ultraterrain at?? I haven’t heard anything about this tire and there aren’t hardly any reviews on it yet. Just curious on performance and such since I’m looking for new tires here sometime before winter.

In for reviews!

I've seen a few initial impressions on other forums but nothing from Wrangler owners.

This is an exclusive tire to us so if you have any questions for us please don't hesitate to let us know

I would like to see some reviews on this tire when they become available. They look like a type of tire that would do well in snow but I also would need a descent mud tire for the woods all other times of the year. So what I’m curious about is the tires mud capability. I don’t know if the tire treads would clean out so well.

Looking at the tread pattern my guess is this tire will fair well in light to moderate mud conditions. If mud performance is high on your priority list and is something you will see on the regular then you may want to go with a tire that's a little more aggressive like the DuraTrac for example.

I'm guessing these are a 2-ply, like the DuraTrac?

If you are referring to the sidewalls, they are 2 ply rated.

Hope this helps.

Interesting tread pattern. Reminds me of the exclusive version Walmart sells called the "Authority A/T".

Can you get these Ultra Terrain tires with outlined white letters in a 35x12.50-17 or 315/70-17??

The Wrangler UltraTerrain is offered in 35x12.50R-17 but only with black letters.

285/70R-17 and 285/65R-18 are currently the only two sizes offered with white letters.

Unfortunately, looks don't really tell us too much...would be nice to see some testing. DT tire is big enough that they should do some testing and reports...

I had a set of Goodyear Wrangler Radials https://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires...BBCardTireName on two different Blazers several years ago...they LOOK like they should be a good all around tire. However, they are single worst peferoming tires I have ever used. Pathetic lateral traction on anything but dry pavement in a straight line...With wet pavement one could expect the front end to slide or back end to kick out. Mud or snow, forget lateral traction...

Thank you for your comments, VT. The UltraTerrain AT is undergoing 3rd partying testing for dry performance, wet performance, winter performance, road noise, comfort, etc. The results should be available soon

As for off-road performance, we'll have to rely on first-hand consumer experiences for this as we do not have off-road performance test in place at this time.

On a side note, you can tell to some degree how a tire will perform in certain conditions by looking at the tread design. A highly siped tire, just for example, will tend to perform better in winter conditions when compared to a tire of similar tread pattern that utilizes less sipe density. A tire with more void between the tread blocks will tend to perform better in muddy conditions than a tire with tighter packed tread blocks.

Tires are a product of compromise - no single tire and score 10 out 10 in all performance areas, so ultimately the right model will depend on the users driving conditions and the performance attributes they expect the tires to deliver.

I was in my local Americas Tire store last week for tires on my F150. Saw the new Ultra next to the BFG K02. I'm pretty sure the Goodyear was designed to compete with the BFG. I live in snow country, and after having a set of the BFGs, and raving about em, I ended up going with the tried and true K02s. Never EVER slipped or slid, I commuted 80 miles round trip over a 5800' pass everyday, I tried alot of different brand tires, but the BFGs work for me. The K02s remind me of a Glock. It's the best selling because it works, everyone else is copying it to some extent for a reason.. just sayin.

We're still waiting on the Light Truck results but I can tell you that the standard construction version scores 5 out 5 in winter performance (3 is average performance). Wet stopping this version scored 4 out 5 and in dry stopping this tire scored 4.5 out of 5

DT any more reviews or testing results of the Ultraís yet? Also how soft or hard is the compound of the Ultraís compared to the DuraTracís? Just wondering to try to gauge wear of the Ultraís vs the DuraTracís.

Thanks

I don't have density info on the compounding, but looking at the wear rates that we're seeing instore, the two are comparable.

Estimated life for the UltraTerrain is 50K to 55K and the DuraTrac is 55K to 60K. Results will vary depending on how you drive and the area you live in.

I was able to check them out up close when I was having my Patagonia's rotated. They look like they will be a really good road tire for an AT. I wouldn't consider them for more aggressive off road use. I also found the price to be a little out of range of comparable tires. For a DT exclusive, it is a bit rich for my taste.

@DiscountTire , any newer info? Who did the study? My web searches aren't yielding up much.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, B

Thank you for your question. The data is from 3rd party testing under extremely controlled conditions to be able to produce accurate results.

We have had solid feedback from customers running this tire so far. You can tale advantage of the labor Day Sale starting tomorrow.
