They look like they might be ok, only $130 a tire so I might try them. Just wanting to know how noisy, how they hold up, and how are they in the rain.

Check out the Wrangler DuraTrac


Almost the same features as the Authority but studable, and IMO look better.

TIRERACK.com
The Wrangler DuraTrac is Goodyear's Commercial Traction light truck tire developed for the drivers of multi-purpose, full-sized pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles looking for tires that play hard and work harder. The Wrangler DuraTrac is designed to be a versatile tire offering off-road competence in dirt, gravel and mud with on-road composure in dry, wet and winter conditions.
Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rugged tread compound that helps resist tread block chipping, chunking and tearing, especially during heavy loading and towing applications. Its symmetric tread design combines large shoulders and highly angled center tread blocks to enhance stability and traction in dry and wet conditions. Self-cleaning, stepped shoulder blocks, zigzag sipes and Goodyear's TractiveGroove Technology at the base of the circumferential grooves provide thousands of biting edges to enhance traction in deep mud and snow. Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a rim lock that helps prevent wheel slip throughout the life of the tire and offers a built-in rim protector to help protect wheels from accidental damage on- and off-road.
Wrangler DuraTrac light truck tires are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol to identify they meet industry severe snow service standards. Wrangler DuraTrac tires are designed to accept optional #16 metal studs to enhance ice traction.

Re: wrangler authority 31/10.5/15

I'm aware they are a wal-mart tire. The thing is they have them in stock and I need tires last week. They are cheap enough I'll just run them on my spare rims for the time being and get what I really want and put that on my good rims. Everybody else has to order the tires and its gonna be at least a one week wait. Fact of the matter is I have never even cared for goodyear tires anyways.


I was just asking how they hold up, noise, how well are they in the rain.

Re: Wrangler Authority A/T 31x10.50R15LT

DimeRunner 88...

Hmmm, Sounds like Walmart 1310 or 4235... in Terre Haute?

Let the performance of the Wrangler Authority speak for itself.
I haven't bought a set yet.

The Authority is the equivalent to the Wrangler Duratrac that is available at Goodyear dealers.

The main difference is that the Wrangler Authority is not pinned for studs like the DuraTrac is.

I sort of like the sidewall styling of the Authority more, but I like studded tires in the winter. Both have the Extreme Winter Mountain Snowflake.

The main difference is that the Wrangler Authority is not pinned for studs like the DuraTrac is.

Sounds like a good value to me.

This dumbass state shuts down at the hint of ice so I could care less if its pinned for studs or not so I don't see the reason for that to matter except I'm sure without looking its gonna raise the price. Why pay more for something I'll never use?
