After reading lots of internet reviews on different forums, I thought I'd give the WalMart exclusive Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires a try on my 2000 Blazer ZR2. Initially I was fairly impressed with the tires, WalMart's TLE leaves a lot to be desired though. After waiting 3 hours and missing my afternoon class, they finally got to my truck. An hour more the truck had 5 new tires, including the spare. The total came to $969 including road hazard. While doing some work on the truck, I noticed the right front tire had a ton of weight on the backside, and there were weights straight across from other weights. Needless to say I took the truck back to WalMart and complained. This made me question the balance of the remaining tires. I took the truck to a "real" tire shop to have all of the tires rebalanced. All of the tires had 2-2.5 ounces too much weight. Fast forward a few weeks, I had the tires swapped over to another set of wheels by another "real" tire shop. Once again the tires will not balance without a ton of weight. One tire had 6.75 ounces on the backside, after turning it on the wheel 3 times, they got it down to 5 ounces on the backside. Back to WalMart I went. After arguing with the idiot behind the counter for 30 mins (I worked at a tire shop for 2 years), I finally spoke to the department manager. After explaining my dissatisfaction with these tires I spent almost a grand on, he finally agreed to take them back. The Blazer is going in for a set of BFG All Terrain's tomorrow.
We just got dumped on in N.E Ohio with about 7in of white stuff my newly purchased Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires handled great. I would suggest them to anyone thinking about buying them , as I'm sure they will do just as good in the mud .
Hi there, I am running (using) 31x10.50r15 Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires. Purchased from Wal-Mart and they are a.... SUPER tire! In-expensive and couldn't ask for more! $133 a tire anywhere outside of Canada, its $183 a tire in Canada, which came out to $729.39 campared to over $1000 for Duratracs which have less tread and are heavier and dont last as long!
265/75/17's or 32x10.50's.? You sure you got the goodyear wrangler authority a/t's? The largest you can get them is in a 31x10.5 Up here in IDAHO everything is larger! Yes I'm sure; I bought them and installed them. If you don't believe me look at my photo's! Oh I almost forgot; that's the largest YOU can get them in, they come in larger sizes for others.
