The line has long been clearly defined between off-road driving and on-road cruising. All-terrain drivers are usually off-road enthusiasts while highway driving is the area of commuters. Very few tires have attempted to bridge the gap between the two, up until the Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure With Kevlar came along. These tires are built to offer a combined experience of versatile off-road and on-road performance. Designed for light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles the tires are capable of hauling and ferrying relatively heavy loads.

Dual Performance Assurance

The Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure With Kevlar tire is an all-terrain tire at heart. Rugged strength and performance come as standard thanks to i layering on the tire. It features an open tread design that allows for adaptable off-road capability to make sure one can handle any kind of landscape. The tires’ performance is unhindered by season, meaning one can enjoy the same levels of capability in snow, wet and dry driving conditions.

As mentioned, considerations have also been made to ensure that the tire can perform optimally in on-road surfaces. A long-lasting rubber compound that has a multi-woven tread design make driving on-road comfortable. Durawall technology is mated to the sidewall structure to fend off curb damage, punctures and damage.

Off-road In The Shallows

As many a manufacturer has discovered, there are some inherent pitfalls in trying to satisfy numerous markets all at once, and Goodyear are no exception. An area that the Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure With Kevlar falls short relates to wet driving. The tires tend to hydroplane quite badly and this is well below the manufacturer quoted limits. This may not have too many ramifications for off-road drivers, however slick on-road driving can have catastrophic results.

The performance issues continue when it comes to mud and deep snow driving. The tires tend to slip and fail to grip in these conditions. This could be a result of the wide grooves that don’t evacuate debris and slush as efficiently.

There are some drawbacks with the Goodyear Wrangler All-terrain Adventure With Kevlar tires particularly when it comes to extreme off-road driving. There is a balancing act to be made, and the following points win the case for them.

Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure With Kevlar Strengths

  • Varied load sizes from standard to pro-grade for various hauling and towing needs
  • High tensile spiral-wrapped steel belts for added rigidity and strength
  • Chip and chunk-resistant tread compound for enhanced tread wear
  • Wide shoulder blocks and grip folds running along the circumference of the tire, providing biting edges for added traction
  • Brute strength afforded by two layers of DuPont Kevlar technology – enhanced compound

The Goodyear wrangler all terrain adventure with Kevlar review proves that some good can come from combining efforts and serving varied segments. The tires offer reasonable performance across different terrains on and off-road.
