Goodyear Wrangler Adventure All Terrain Review & Rating
- On and off-road traction
- Comfortable ride
- Tread life
- No real cons on this tire
While targeted specifically at light truck and SUV drivers, Goodyear Wrangler Adventure All Terrain tires are a premium model that are designed to work well on practically any road surface. They can be used on three-quarter and one-ton pickup trucks, vans and SUVs and come with a layer of DuPont Kevlar for added toughness.
The tires are developed to be more versatile and durable both on-road and on more rugged terrains. We decided to put the Wrangler Adventure All Terrain to the test to see how they matched up to their claims.
The open tread pattern on the tire gives it an extra level of traction and grip in mud, sand, gravel, dirt and wet conditions. This isn’t a marketing ploy and it is something that we have found is actually true. The traction on this tire is outstanding and they handle really well on wet roads and surfaces that aren’t even designed for driving on.
Cornering – Steering
Even with some aggressive driving the tires held their own and we felt in control and secure while driving with them. Cornering was very good for AT tire and the steering never felt stiff or too slack. In fact, there is very little wrong we can find with this tire when it comes to general driving.
So, the Goodyear Wrangler Adventure All Terrain is great when driving on dry and wet road surfaces and also going off road as well. Lots of tires are like this, however, when it comes to a few inches of snow then this is when problems usually arise.
The tread compound and biting edges are supposed to help with snow grip, but do they? We tested the tires on snow (not a lot but enough to give us a general idea of their performance) and they did perform really well. The severe snow conditions symbol from Goodyear means they can tackle even the worst conditions in theory and we didn’t see any evidence to the contrary. We felt confident when driving in rough winter conditions.
Ride Comfort – Road Noise
All-terrain tires often suffer from excessive noise levels as you well know if you’ve driven on different models over the years. We were expecting the tires to be quite noisy, however this never materialized and we were definitely impressed by their very low noise levels.
For off road tires they were also comfortable. Not the most comfortable we have ever experienced, but certainly better than your run of the mill tires most people have on their vehicles.
Features such as the Durawall Technology, Dupont Kevlar and the 640 UTQG tread rating mean that they should last. While we only tested them for a short time, other reports have positive reviews for the tread life on these tires. They are built to last and while this may be obvious given their usage, you don’t often find tires that live up to their claims of a long tread life. This particular model does however.
Warranty on these tires is a cool 60,000 miles, which is better than many other tires in its class. The Goodyear Wrangler Adventure All Terrain is a fantastic model. Great traction, smooth riding, durability in off road conditions and genuine all weather performance with a good tread life make them one of the better AT tires at the minute.
