All-Terrain tires are the most popular tire type in the 4x4 industry. More than any other tire type, they are asked to perform a multitude of tasks ranging from providing traction on dry and wet pavement, snow, ice, rocks, mud and so on. With that range of terrain-demand in mind, Goodyear set out to design a tire that fit the adventurer in all of us and maintain a 60,000-mile tread-wear warranty.
What the company came up with is the Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar. It features two real Kevlar plies in the tread area for puncture resistance and to maintain light weight. Durawall rubber helps prevent cuts and chunking in the sidewalls. The tread is slightly more aggressive than some all-terrain tires. It has numerous biting edges for rocks and loose dirt, a decent tread-to-open-void ratio and open shoulder blocks for snow and light mud use, and many sipes in the tread lugs for improved ice and wet weather performance.
We had a chance to get behind the wheel of several different fullsize trucks with the new Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure tires on them and even did a comparison test on a wet and dry skidpad. We found that the Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure really shines on wet pavement. There are currently 44 different sizes available. We’ll get some additional seat time on the new tires on- and off-road and report back soon.
