    I will be shopping for tires soon and was wondering if anybody had tried these Wrangler Trailrunner AT tires yet. Link.

    Seems like it is in between the OEM Off-road All-Terrain Adventures and the Duratrac. I do mostly highway driving, with occasional logging roads and gravel roads. So to be honest, the OEM tires have worked fine. I just want something that looks a little more aggressive and was thinking Duratracs until I saw these.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Im probably going to go with the Duratrac, but these trail runners looked interesting. Doesn’t appear that anyone has tried them.

    Bump for input on the Trailrunner. I am going to need to replace my OEM GY Adventures soon, over 40K miles and excellent wear, but a tad shallow with winter coming up. I actually really like the Adventures but have had two rock cuts (tread, pluggable) so want to go to an LT tire, load range C or 112, so options are limited for 16", don't want lift or rehear: Cooper AT3, Kumho Road Venture AT, or Duratrac. The Trailrunner is decently priced and probably quieter than the Duratrac. My biggest off road requirement is good durability for miles of desert rock and dirt ... the P-metric Adventures have been OK all-in-all, but I think an LT will just be that much better.

    I just got a set of these, I maybe have 600km on them. They're relatively quiet and provide good traction in everything I expected them to. I have them in 265/70/17 P-rated, and they hold a decent amount of weight. Haven't pushed them too much, will be getting them out more as we get deeper snow.

    I have them on my Jeep. The Trailrunner AT's are marketed as a cheaper alternative to their Duratrac's. The Jeep is a traditional 225/75R-15 in a P-rated tire. It has a narrow contact patch where the rubber hits the road. It's helps with traction but does look a bit odd. The funny thing about these tires is the "ribs" - the rows of rubber blocks separated by the groove. In a 4-rib version, it's an all-season tire. In a 5-rib version, it's an all-weather tire with the mountain-snowflake symbol.

    I dont have a full truck picture yet, but this one shows how the tread holds on to snow as well as how much it fills up the rear wheel well on a 2nd gen. If I was looking for extra durability I'd look into the LT version, epsecially with a deeper tread depth on those. Main reason I went p-rated was because I really needed tires and these were a steal of a deal. They are much quieter than duratracs in my opinion but I can forsee a bit of clearing issues with the pattern. Overall I'm happy so far. They let me get more places and drive more confidently which will let me do more. Considering how much I use my truck and how different its jobs can be, this was a good happy medium. In picture I had about 600lbs of sandbags in the back of the truck, and very little deformity in the tire which is great for me.

    How do these compare with the Goodyear Adventure w/ Kevlar that comes with the off-road and Pro?

    I have the TRD Sport, and it came stock with Bridgestone H/T tires. These are the first A/T tires I've put on this truck, and they are way better than H/T. Can't speak to the Adventure with Kevlar though

    This site says it's positioned "below" the Adventure.
    https://tirereviewsandmore.com/goodyear-wrangler-trailrunner-at-reviews/
    The Adventure seems to be Load Range E only in LT sizes. I'd be happy with Adventures that were just a bit puncture resistant than the OEM tires, assuming ride, traction etc were similar to the OEMs.

    I had the Trailrunner ATs installed this past weekend. So far the ride is good and not much road noise - even at highway speed.

    We had rain a couple days ago and the wet traction was very good. I went out of my way to try and spin the tires from a dead stop and couldn't. No weight in the bed.

    So far so good.

    These seem to be geared towards owners who do more on road driving with some occasional off roading. I may pick these up when my OEM Adventures wear out. Looking forward to more reviews and impressions.

    I do quite a bit of on road driving, but most of our roads exist in a state of slush, gravel, ice and snow. I've found they can break loose if I'm on ice, but that's like most tires. Havent tried them on anything other than 8 inches of snow, ice, road and slush though

    So these trail runners seem to be less aggressive than the OEM Goodyear Adventures and slotted below them in price. Seems to be a good choice for someone who wants a slightly more aggressive road tire who occasionally drives on service roads or off the pavement.

    Now I’m wondering how these compare with the . They look pretty similar.

    Note that 1010tires.com seems to be a Canadian site ... not sure if all their tires, including the Armortrac, are available in the US.

    These are an interesting option I may need to consider to replace my OEM TRD OR tires.

    I see these Trailrunner AT tires actually are lighter (41lbs) in size LT265/75/16 Load C than the OEM Goodyear Wranglers w/Kevlar are in size P265/70/16 at 42lbs (according to Tirerack.com). The Trailrunners are just a bit narrower at 10.5" versus the OEM tires at 10.7", but that is negligible.

    I am really considering these at this point. I do drive 90% of my miles on road as my Taco is my commute and overlanding rig all in one, but when I do go off road I do go places that are very remote and have rough terrain with desert rock. So that 10% of my driving that is off road is a very important 10%. I need something that is more reliable and durable than the OEM Kevlars. I have been more than happy with the traction the OEM kevlars give, just need something more durable and not sure if this Load C tire would do that for me?

    Sounds like we NorCal guys have the same needs! I'm surprised there aren't more load range C or D tires in 265/70 or 75 sizes to fit stock 16" rims and unlifted trucks. I'm just not quite ready to go to something as aggressive as a Duratrac; though Cooper/Mastercraft and Toyo have decent options too in load range C.
