    AGREED!

    I have had so many bad experiences with Goodyear. after about half the tread life the tires lose traction in rain. Had some on my wrangler and got rid of them after taking an off ramp and slid right off of it. :eek:

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    Any particular model of tire?

    I was under the impression that Goodyear's Wrangler SilentArmor would be decent?

    I have mixed feeings about the Fortera SilentArmor. They're junk in muddy conditions, but my family took a full loaded 2WD Suburban and took a offroad trail south of Bryce Canyon National park (it's off 89) and it performed decently (the trail was dry at the time). Lots of highway time because of vactations on the Fortera SilentArmor and no problems.

    I had talked to several tire stores and they all said that a lot of the goodyear AT tires actually have 2 grades of rubber on them. a really sticky grade on the top third to half of the tread and then a harder grade on the bottom half. My sister has had a couple different goodyears on her Expedition and hasn't liked any of them. actually she said that after trying 4 different models of goodyear she will never by them again. Everyone of them have good traction for about a year then go to hell. loses all traction on wet pavement.

    I highly recomend bridgestones revos. I had them on an F250 crew 4x4 I use to own and the were top of the line good.

    Shhh! the wife thinks I dont do mods on trucks anymore
    Goodyear MTRs are great for Dry and the BF MT for muddy roads.
    I ran good year MTR's for 60K on my Jeep and they rock for rocks and not bad on the highway,
    BF all terrain have weaker sidewalls and not good for jagged areas

    Well, on a somewhat related note.

    I wanted to get the BFG, but read much better reviews in comparison, to the Firstone Destination in both AT and MT varieties.
