If you’re not going hardcore, the Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT is a solid choice.
This is the third time I’ve sampled the Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT on several surfaces, including moderately challenging off-road. After some feedback from a few fans/friends who have owned these tires over 15,000+miles, I have a pretty good idea how good these tires are.
Full transparency, these Wranglers TrailRunner ATs were up against BFGoodrich K02 and General Grabber AT2s when I was in the market. I settled on the K02s as I knew I would need a slightly more agressive off-road tire. It was the right choice.
Still, the quiet ride and overall capability of the Goodyear made me think twice.
Goodyear also makes snow tires like the WinterCommand, which will soon become relevant again as the seasons change. We tested those in the video below:
Over the past year, I drove off-road in some fairly extreme conditions with the Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT. Recently, it was in a large SUV, which you will see a video of (and post) next month. I also drove in Moab, Utah on Fins-and-Things in a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado wearing a new set. In January, I tested a Jeep Grand Cherokee sporting as set – both in the snow and off-road.
The Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT is an excellent tire for people who want quiet, year-round driving tire that’s not too shabby off-road. Sure, the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac is a much better off-road tire, but it’s louder on the road, not as good in snow and appears to be more expensive.
It looks like the base retail price for these tires starts around $90 each. The set that my friend with the 2013 Silverado ran about $120 each, after mounting and balancing.
In time, we will soon post a video which will show off the capabilities of this tire, which was mounted on a massive 20-inch wheel. Stay tuned for that! In the meantime, check out some more interesting off-road content below:
