    Default Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure opinions

    Almost due for new tyres. Any feedback in the new Goodyear adventure?

    How much KM have you done, what type of driving etc.

    They are very well prices, and although my head and heart leans toward BF Goodrich again, cannot convince myself to pay double. Would rather buy 2 sets of Wranglers.

    Other well priced options and tyres that I have experience with are:
    Conti Cross Contact AT - OEM on Ranger - Lasted well for 60 000, probably another 10 000 in them. Chipping bothers me. Have done many trails / KNP etc and a Richters veld trip. All of this without even one puncture.
    General Grabber AT - Had these on my Discovery 3 - Would not mind another set.

    Thanks.

    10 000km 235/85R16 on defender 110, done a few trails and 1 camping trip with them and happy so far. I drive gravel roads at least once a week and they are much more comfortable that the previous bfg at I had.

    One puncture so far from sekelbos.

    I am now on my 3rd set of General Grabbers At's, and have been very happy with them, I fitted two AT3's to my front wheels when they first came out, and to my surprise I feel they are better than the older ones (most certainly in mud)
    I have always thought that there sidewalls were a bit on the soft side.

    But my friend who I do most of my trips with, uses BF Goodrich At's.
    The score between us at the moment for sidewall cuts is BF's 5, Grabbers 1, So maybe I'm wrong.

    However what I have read about the new Goodyear's impresses me, and I think I may just change over to them next time.

    I have 2 Wranglers and 2 Continental Crosscontacts - 235/85/16 - all 4 fitted at the same time. 30,000 km so far - 50/50 tar/gravel, rocks and sand - with luck I'll get 40k from the Wranglers. I estimate I'll get a minimum of 80k from the Conti's.

    I am on my second set of Goodyear Wranglers.

    First set lasted about 70 000km over +-4 Years, and only puncture I got was from a nail.

    I drive about 2km dirt road every day on my way to work, and one weekend in a month I drive +-100km dirt road to a friends farm.

    The second set is the wrangler adventure with kevlar, and even more happy with them than the previous set. Currently on 4000km

    The road noise is a bit less than the previous set, and I'm not sure if it's just in my head, but on road grip feels better.

    Offroad grip there is definitely an improvement.

    Only negative I can think of is that they don't do that well in mud, but which all-terrain tyre doesn't.


    A while back the Drive Out/Wegry Magazine did a comprehensive shootout on the all-terrain tyres on the market, and the Goodyear Wrangler Adventure came out on top as the overall winner.

    Blind, If it may be of assistance,

    When I bought my tyres a phoned around a lot to find the best price on the Goodyear Adventures.

    The people with the best price I found was Sollys Mag and Tyre at 34 Market St, Cnr Commissioner St, Krugersdorp.

    As far as I know the Goodyear Wrangler Adventure that replaced the AT/SA is not available in SA as yet.

    Going larger with respect to your current tyre rolling circumference will have a definite impact on your fuel consumption and speedometer accuracy. With 17 rims you may need a lower profile tire which makes for a harder ride. Just some things to consider

    This is almost exactly my experience too.

    Previous AT/SA's I got 70 000km with one puncture.

    New Adventures definitely quieter, better grip on wet tar and the other day on a steep, off camber wet / muddy grass hillside they gripped well (normally kryptonite in a 4x2 bakkie.)

    I've had one puncture in the first week (Murphy's Law) but it was a massive Tek Screw through a tread block so not really the tyre's fault.

    Done 10 000km and they still look new.

    As I've said before, I just wish the sidewall was a bit more aggressive for protection and appearance.

    I still WANT BFG's or another set of Hankook MTs but I really don't think I can justify them for tar, gravel and sand use.

    It was launched in April, they have very little of the old AT/SA's left. My store only has Adventures
