    Does anybody have these tires on their truck? If so what do you think about them? I am considering these because they are a step up from my old Goodyear eagles which are an SUV tire and don't hold up to the conditions I put them through. Any info or comments are highly appreciated.

    Thats probably cuz it was on a Ranger, not the tires fault. Thanks for that bit of info though.

    Ditto on the ABSOLUTE worst tires I have ever bought!! Was "sold" on the tires because they didn't have BF's in stock, and gave me a lifetime roadside on the tires. So far they have worn to nothing, had 2 unexplained blowouts due to loss of pressure and they can't explain why. They also will not cover them under warranty. I would NEVER buy another set of them in my life.

    I just put them on my f-350 load e and have about 2,000 miles on them. So far I have been happy with them, they are quiet for a big tire, traction is good and very little side wall flex when loaded.

    Oh just to clarify these arn't the old Wranglers GSA's or the ATS's. Those are two entirely different tires that have had a bunch of problems. I am talking about the brand new redesigned Wrangler with dual steel belts and Kevlar cord.

    I've seen those, and almost bought them. Wound up going with the Bridgeston A/T Revos instead. I love the Revo's, excellent in snow, ice, mud, and rain. Much quieter than the stock BFG Long Trails, too.

    I stopped at a Goodyear store one morning waiting to meet my wife for breakfast; the guy told me about the silent armors and they sounded ok but they were a little on the pricey side. Well, maybe a lot on the pricey side.
