    Does anyone have these tires? Goodyear Wrangler Authority all terrain tires. They have a good tough look to them, but how do they perform? Looking to get new tires for my prerunner. Damn dunlops are horrible. I think I've lived with them long enough!!!

    Not to resurrect an old thread but I just saw those tires at WalMart and they look nice!!! The price seemed a little high ($175 each). I wonder if anyone has them?

    Not sure if the original poster is still looking into getting these tires or not, but I just now seen this thread. Will is right, I have these tires and I love them. So far on my trucks I have had BFG A/Ts, Bridgestone duelers (cant remember which type), and these. These are by far my favorite. I've put 10,000 miles on them so far and can't notice any wear. Do really great in slick lakebed mud, and also on trails. They are decently loud for an AT, which I like. If I was going to get all terrains again, I would get another set of these. I MIGHT be selling these used this summer when I upgrade to new wheels and some MTs, or keep them for emergency. Theres plenty of pics of them in my build thread : http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/builds/45610-cbcs1987-build-up.html#post788793

    they do look good, but when I was looking at them I noticed the sidewalls are extremely thin... if you do much wheeling I'd say too thin!

    I wouldn't be. They are still made by Goodyear and are made in the USA. What does that mean to you? That means they are held to higher quality and safety standards than most of your foreign competitor tires that come out of China, Taiwan, and Thailand.... cough* Nitto, Falken, Nakang cough*

    I put these on my 98 PreRunner in early October. They started out great but after about a month of driving them I'm getting a lot of vibration, particularly at 40-60 mph. At speed they seem to smooth out though. I had them balanced 2x already and it didn't seem to help much. Also, have tried several different air pressures

    Anyone else have this issue with these tires?

    We have these at our Canadian Tire stores and I was also thinking abotu going with these. CT offers a warrenty for $7 extra supposed to cover everything and anything that goes wrong with the tire for I think 3 or 5 years.

    Does anyone know tho difference between these and the Duratracs? They look the same of the bat but there has to be a difference.

    I had these on my '04 Chev Blazer, loved them for that truck.
    I'm sure the common complaint you will see is the noise..

    Did awesome in Canadian deep snow!!

    Never really thought about putting them on my Tacoma, something to think about I guess.

    Would love to see some Taco's with this rubber set-up!!
