New Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure Good for Towing and Off-Road

I talk about having the right tires for the job all the time.  Tires are manufactured to perform a specific job on a specific type of vehicle.  There are passenger car tires and Light Truck (LT) tires. There are all-season tires, winter tires, mud & snow tires and performance tires.

 Vehicles used for towing and hauling heavy loads need the right tires for the job. Having the right tires on your tow vehicle can be the difference between getting to your RV destination safely and a towing disaster. When you are replacing the tires on a truck or SUV used for towing or hauling heavy loads an important consideration is the load range or rating of the tires.  When you consider the trailer’s tongue weight you are adding a significant amount of weight to the tow vehicle’s tires. Other considerations include safety concerns like braking and handling characteristics and the tires tread life. Commercial tires do a good job when it comes to towing and hauling heavy loads and performing well on the road.

Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure

 Goodyear recently announced a new member of the Wrangler tire family, the Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure.  The Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure is a commercial tire so it works well in towing and hauling applications and 20 of the 44 tire sizes available are designated as “Pro-Grade” fitments, appealing to those adventurous types who enjoy heading off-road at a moment’s notice.

 The all-new Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure tire features a layer of DuPont Kevlar that offers versatility for highway or off-road driving and rugged toughness over pavement, gravel and dirt, plus superior traction through rain and snow. It contains Goodyear’s exclusive Durawall Technology, which offers toughness and helps resist cuts in the sidewall area.

 I mentioned earlier that 20 sizes of this new tire are designated as “Pro-Grade” fitments. What that means is, these Load Range E tires come with two layers of Kevlar and a heavy-duty steel belt package. The Pro-Grade tires represent a version for three-quarter ton and/or one-ton trucks that regularly haul or tow heavy loads.

 The Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar carries a 60,000-mile tread life limited warranty on standard load and LT sizes.

 Don’t skimp when it comes to tow vehicle tires. Purchase a tire that can handle the job.
