I work in the tire dept. at a local Sam's Club. In my personal opinion, stay away from any Goodyear Wranglers. They always seem to wear in a retarded manner. If u want a good tire, go with the BFG TKO(the all terrain). U might even try their BFG mud terrains, they look pretty sic, but I've never installed them...2010 Equinox LT

What did you find out about these tires? I am thinking about buying them. I want traction (Denver) but not excessive noise (2004 Tahoe Z71)
I am little concerned on the highway they are going to make a lot of noise with their aggressive tread 18/32. Did you buy them or know of anybody has and what would their feedback be?

just make sure you keep your receipt if you have any probs with them tires you will have to go to walmart the goodyear places will not honor the mileage warranty beacuse as far as they are concerned they are not REAL goodyears, they are just made for wal-mart. I used to work in the tire and lube express in a wal-mart and i also work for a city transportation dept. at the city we use goodyears for all our cars and trucks and OUR goodyear rep told us about the wal-mart tires.2004 Silverado 1500 2wd Ext.

Tires from the same manufacturer vary....alot!... As a young'un I worked for General Tire for 8 yrs building tires. Anyone in Canada who bought tires from Canadian Tire were buying Generals as we made them.
The tires made for a certain company(ie Walmart) are made exactly according to what they want.Could be high-end could be low end(in Walmarts case I'm sure the manufacturing cost was an issue therefore lower end hard rubber).
It's all about the different compounds for the rubber, the different belt material (kevlar,steel polyester)and the mold(tread pattern).
The softer the tread compound the smoother the ride but also the quicker the wear. I haven't seen these tires in our Walmarts up here but I have seen some cheap passenger tires and you have to remember - you get what you pay for. If you get a good guarantee then you're fine.

I tried them
alright here's the deal, I went ahead and got them about a month and a half ago or so, road noise isn't too bad, they actually kinda have like a deep whistle, but doesn't get too loud till you start going over 65ish, and then ofcoarse it keeps getting louder, I did get the road hazard warenty and mount and balance and all that stuff, i think total came out to around 650 or 700 can't really remember, traction is pretty good, I'm impressed not going to have a chance to try them in snow until I go home in december, however, I do know that they work very well in mud, not sure about sand YET, haven't had time to drive to the outer banks yet, but i will try and post when I do try them in the sand, overall for price, I'm satisfied with the low road noise, and good traction, I got the 275/75's if you don't have a whole lot of money to spend, then I would recomend them, I'm happy with them, and so far no problems and I've put about 3 thousand miles on them

Coming from a guy who has been so broke at one time that none of the tires matched on my car, I'm not about to bash Wal-Mart tire offerings. I can afford to spend a little more and today all four corners have the same tire.
I like and use BFG's and Goodyear. On my work truck I'm currently running the Wrangler RTM with kevlar. At $1400 for a set of five, not everyone can afford them I'm glad my boss thinks I'm worth it.
For my burb I am running a set of factory take offs that I bought on craigslist. I paid less than $400 for four tires with alloy wheels. They still had the 'nubs' on them. Next time out I'll probably buy the same, but it sounds like I'd at least consider taking a look at the Wal-Mart Goodyears if I'm in the mood for store bought tires.
If you're not into a specialty tire and factory rubber is ok with you....check out craigslist for a deal on a set of take offs. Nothing wrong with store bought tires so if you need a more aggressive tread or better wet weather traction take a look at BFG's and Wranglers you really can't go wrong with either.
If you get off in the rough stuff. Sidewall strength counts:

Just bought 4
I Bought 4 265/75/16 10 ply Wrangler Authorty's on my 94 Burban. After 2000 miles they still look new. No chipping or wierd wear patterns. ride straight and true. I couldn't pass up the price. The 6 ply were 160 a piece and the 10 ply were 165. Only five bucks more. I took them out to the beach and they were awesome. I was really impressed with the quality. Ive had BFG A/T's and Wild country TXR's. These Wrangler's ctually compete. Too soon to say there better than the others but I'm on the verge of declaring my love for them. Go and get em.

my boss put them on his 05 silverado 2500. size 265/75r16 load e the side wall feels pretty spongy for an e load tire and when any of the trailers he has hooked up hold on for a wild ride. bumps and little corrections in the sterring wheel make the back end wander all over the road and that at 35-40 mph. you dont drive the speed limit or you'll be in the ditch.as for wear he hasn't had them long enough but i can only imagine what it going to be.
