  • My GMC Jimmy rides on GOODYEAR WRANGLERS

    Sep 9, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great traction on wet and dry road surfaces, easy to clean and maintain and very durable
    Cons: Slightly rougher ride than my previous Michelins

    Summary: What great timing! My tires on my 1997 GMC Jimmy SLT 2 wheel drive were worn down to the point where I had to replace them or risk being a road hazard myself. I am a procrastinator and should have replaced my tires several months ago but I was always ... read more

    Pros: handles well on dry and curve surface roads.
    Cons: No traction on wet roads! Very DANGEROUS!!

    Summary: I will never put these tires on my truck and recommend NOT to buy these tires to others. I'm planning to replace these tires with Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quite Ride????
    Cons: Poor Traction, minimal tread life, Very expensive with min. performance

    Summary: I "adopted" these when I bought a Jeep cherokee and I am very displeased with the wear and traction. As the tires wore I noticed bulging on the sidewalls and the nearest Goodyear Rep. decided that was "normal"!! I have never seen tires with numerous ... read more

  • Dangerous tires, should be recalled!

    Jan 7, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Slightly reduced road noise
    Cons: Expensive, picks up rocks, weak sidewalls, traps mud and snow, dangerous on wet roads

    Summary: I am the type of person that, for safety reasons, doesn't like having different tread tires on my truck, so whenever something happens to my tires, I have to get the same tread tire. I don't go where any normal truck owner doesn't go. I drive down some ... read more

    Pros: Came free with a $38K Durango SLT
    Cons: Couldn't get anything else with Durango

    Summary: Can't believe I actually got 20,000 miles out of these things. Actually I didn't because I replaced 2 of them because of flats, one at 8,000 m and 1 at 13,000 m. At 20,000 one had a bubble coming out from the sidewall and decided to forego the Goodyear ... read more

    Pros: Can't think of a single one!
    Cons: Worst tire I have ever put on an SUV!

    Summary: Ford charges a ton of $$$ for these tires and calls them "All Terrain", well, I don't! They hydroplane on morning dew, have the worst traction on snow and ice, and you better completely forget about mud! But I do have to admit, they ... read more

  • Worst tires I have ever owned

    Feb 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, comfortable ride
    Cons: Poor tread life, poor traction

    Summary: I have had the displeasure of owning these tires on two vehicles. They came as original equipment on my 97 Blazer and also on my 2000 Sonoma. In my opinion these tires have very little upside and a very large downside. Read on and I will explain in more ... read more

    Pros: Great dry handling, Quiet Ride
    Cons: Progressively worsening wet traction.

    Summary: The Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires (LT 31x10.5 x 15) came as optional equipment on my 1998 Dodge Dakota 4x4. I have been riding on these tires since December of 1997 and I have travelled just over 42k miles. I am very hard on my tires and I applaud these ... read more

    Pros: smooth ride, long wearing
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought my 1997 Ford Explorer new. Since the SUV had been sitting on the dealer's lot for almost one year, he offered to replace the existing tires with new ones for a discounted price. Thinking of how quickly rubber can dry rot, I agreed. ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Tire ware and traction

    Summary: These tires came OEM on my 99 Dodge Durango. The traction left much to be desired. Unusual tire ware on all 4 tires and after 25k miles they needed to be replaced (I rotated the tire every 6k miles). My Durango was only driven on the roadway and when I ... read more

    Summary: This Goodyear RTS sized 255-70x16 came on my '99 Ford Expedition. I have now passed 35,000 miles and have become quite familiar with the handling and other properties of this tire. Although I have no specific complaints concerning this tire I wouldn't ... read more

    Pros: Good on and off the pavement.
    Cons: Pricey but worth every penny.

    Summary: I've been running the same set of Wrangler RT/S for the last 35K and they've got another 5 to 10k on them, at least. Mine are on a 2000 Nissan Xterra - 2WD. These ground grabbers are mild enough that they can co-exist with every day driving to and from ... read more

    Pros: Smooth ride.
    Cons: so-so traction.

    Summary: When the OEM tires (a different type of Wrangler) needed replacing on my Jeep Cherokee, I asked the service rep if he could suggest a smoother, quieter tire. The originals were always rough and very noisy. The RT/S is a great tire and I've had no ... read more

    Pros: Treadlife. Looks good.
    Cons: Horrible Wet Traction! Ride quality SUCKS! Very prone to flat spotting EVEN with regular rotation/balancing!

    Summary: Came FREE on my 1998 Explorer. This is the WORST tire I've ever had on a vehicle! The Wet road traction is horrendous and the ride quality is just as bad. Too bad the tread last as long as it does. Can't yet convince "the Boss" to buy new tires ... read more

    Cons: Where do I begin?

    Summary: These tires came with the 1996 Yukon I bought last summer. After talking to several people who have them and like them, I chose to keep them on the Yukon for winter, big mistake. 1/2" of snow and I'm spinning and hill starts need 4 wheel drive. I've ... read more

    Summary: These tires were on my 2000 Dodge Durango when we purchased it. Very poor handling on wet conditions and snow. Had a side wall blow out driving down the interstate at 75 mph while towing a camper. Had a warranty with Goodyear but they won't honor it. ... read more
