does anybody have any thoughts on the wrangler radial tires? I currently have bfg a/t's on my 95 rio but they're shot and the wranglers are in my broke high school girl budget. How do they ride? Good tires for my wrangler and the money? Do they preform well in snow and ice? They'd be 30x9.5x15's thanks in advance

Yeah I use them on my 94' they do well in snow as they have a really deep deep aggressive tread. There's only so much you can do on ice. Personally, I've never gotten stuck with them and it snows plenty here.

Had them in stock size on my 91. They were great, rode nice, did well in the rain and snow. I'd recommend them

I wouldnt give a nickel for all the Goodyear tires made. They were factory installed on my 1982 CJ-8 had 2 of them fail with less than 1500 miles on them. Goodyear would do NOTHING. They said offroad tire on an offroad vehicle NO WARRANTY.The Jeep never even saw a dirt road when they failed. Now everytime I purchase a new vehicle with Goodyear tires on it I make the dealer replace themwith another brand or I dont buy the vehicle.The tires may be OK but the company sucks.

Goodyear tires suck and the wrangler one are crap they are cheap made and cheap price do yourself and your jeep a favor and get something different. If you drive it as a dd they want last a year you will be lucky to get 6 to 8 months out of them their is a reason that they are 60 bucks a tire very low tread wear rating i think 300 y ou want a tread wear rating of at least 500 I sold tires in high school and one thing I learned is that you want the higest Treadwell you can get for what u can afford no need to spend 300 on a set of tires just to turn around next year and spend another 300 I use any tire but goodyear just my 2 cents

Of course everybody has different experiences, but I have them on my 03 Blazer with 30k+ w/3yr and on my YJ with 15k w/2 yrs and have not had a problem. I do light trails only as they are not serious off road capable. Expensive doesn't always mean better IMHO. Treat them right and they should be fine. Good luck.

I have Goodyear rts on my 90'.. Goodyear tires aren't bad, but the radial is their low end tire. You won't pay a lot, but you won't get a lot of miles out of them. Toyo open country tires are awesome. Worth the money, good tread, unsurpassed warranty

I've been running the original Goodyear Wrangler Radial for years on an S Blazer and my Jeep with good wear and no problems. I now have a Safari AWD as my dd and wanted them on it. However I could only get them in a 235/75r15. That size fits the Jeep well not the van though. That's really my only complaint.

I have the Goodyear wrangler radials in 235/75/15 and I plow in the winter, do some off-roading in the summer, and drive it as a daily driver. I also am in highschool so I picked up a set of 4 off craigslist for 200 bucks, it's been a year and a half and there is plenty of tread left. Haven't been stuck ever, and sometime when people are with me that have big meaty tires, are shocked that I go through some of the mud and snow I drive through with my wrangler radials.

Goodyear WRANGLER Radials

Does anyone know why all the online tire searches say Goodyear WRANGLER Radials DO NOT fit my WRANGLER. Just think a tire called WRANGLER would fit a Wrangler

On your budget I'd stay with BFG, the Goodyear will not get the mileage you get with BFG's. I have nothing against Goodyear, I'm actually running the Goodyear MTR Kevlar radials, they are a great off-road and rain/snow tire, but the rubber is soft and I'll be happy to get 30,000 miles off of these, BFG's I could get 50-60,000 on my Jeep.

I had a zj with a mild lift and purchased a set 165/70R16 for a 3/4 dodge that I owned truck was wrecked so I put tires on my zj and I'll have to say an E rated tire on a light vehicle is the way to go finally sold the zj to my brother which he drives 50+ miles to and from work and tires still look great after 2 years I'll be purchasing another set for my super duty here come spring I've never had a problem with goodyear and I've run them on darn near everything I own from semi to my newer jeep wk but tires are like owning a ford dodge or chevy everyone has there fav's

Oh. I don't know why I accused you of bias, that was a while ago. But I suppose I am biased, as I only drive around 100 miles a week. Lol. I can see now that they wear fast with long travel commutes.
