I've got about 15,000 miles on them now. If I were to put some tire shine on the sidewall you'd swear they were brand new.

I've got choose to 20000 miles and they are showing a little wear, nothing bad though. I beat the shit out of them, and besides a few gouges they are holding up well

A little late

I have had these tires for a little over a year and a half. They are great tires. Don't let anyone turn you away. I love them so much bought 2 more sets for my 1976 ford f250 highboy and my 1991 jeep both have plows and the tires hold great.
Running 265/75r16 on my tacoma load range e same thing on my ford and got 15s on my jeep.
My tacoma is my daily driver and love it even more with these tires. With over 15000 on them and can't even tell. They look brand new and I like to throw some dirt and spin them quite a bit and I know that's not the best for them but hey I'm 17 and like to have some fun. Have used them in every terrain and couldn't ask for me. I would have to say they are by far the best tires I have ever used in the snow. Only got stuck one and that was my fault, buried it in a 4ft snow drift. They are not the best in mud from what I have seen but still are really nice tires. Recommend to anyone thinking about getting them. Go for it can't beat the price and great tires. Hope it helps out

I just ran across this thread concerning the Wrangler Authority tires. Been a great tire for me. Wally world or not they were affordable, who knows how many miles I've put on them...I put them on my 07 DC in 09 and have run them in the Ozark Mnts turkey hunting to the gumbo mud of the Arkansas delta and they've been great tires. I'm getting my daily dose of TW now looking to see what's the jive on tires b/c I'm gonna replace them some time next spring and just wanted to put my 2 cents worth in on these tires. I won't go back with them ONLY because I'm preparing a slight lift and want to go with 255 85 16 tires and can't get them in this case...but again highly recommend them to anyone looking.

Good write up. I've walked by these tires several times in Wallyworld and they catch my eye every time I walk by. Your write-up has persuaded me. If/when I need new tires these will definitely be considered.

I'm glad people are finding my tire reviews helpful. I'll keep this one updated as well as write up new ones as I replace tires on other vehicles.

The Wal-Mart tech wouldn't mount them on aftermarket wheels or the tire wouldn't fit on aftermarket wheels?

My biggest fear when buying these tires was the quality of the Wal-Mart employees. I was prepared for some BS story like the one he gave you and I was just going to have them put the tires in the back of my truck and take them somewhere else.

Curious, which version of the Wild Country did you get?

This review persuaded me to buy them. I have 12,000 on them now. I have a 3 inch lift and the 265/70/17s look good on mine.

They fit on my aftermarket rims. The walmart near me knows there stuff but it seems to be a hit and miss across the board.

Does walmart have decent wheel weights? More specific, do they have ones that fit properly on Toyota rims? I had to have a flat repair done and the independent shop I went to only had the generic wheel weights that didn't seem to fit properly, I was worried about throwing a weight.

I think it really depends on your local Walmart. I haven't had issues with the wheel weights on mine.
