Goodyear’s Wrangler ArmorTrac is advertised to offer high levels of performance and traction for trucks and SUVs both on and off-road. It does have all the necessary components to deliver on its promise, from the sturdy tread compound and symmetrical tread design to the fairly large shoulder blocks, but does it actually live up to the hype? Continue reading to find out.
Goodyear Wrangler ArmorTrac (Our Review)
The ArmorTrac is one tough-looking tire with its open tread pattern and optimized VTD (void to tread) ratio. The tread pattern does an excellent job of ensuring reliable traction and performance on off-road terrain, whereas the optimization of the VTD is so that the tire is able to get rid of debris, mud, and stones that might get stuck in the tread.
One of the things we like about this tire is that it features a rim protector that helps keep your wheels in good shape. This is a feature to look for in any tire if you have expensive rims.
Now, the ArmorTrac might not be as sought-after as the Goodyear Silent Armor (both have equally cool yet menacing names, though), the ArmorTrac’s performance isn’t that far off from the performance of Silent Armor.
The ArmorTrac performs very well both on wet and dry terrain. It’s even capable in the snow. It also shines on broken terrains that are full of gravel, rock, and mud. To add, the tire flaunts a relatively long tread life, so you don’t have to worry about it giving up on you mid-haul.
- Sturdy tread compound with excellent tread life
- Reliable performance both on and off the road
- Performs very well on both dry and wet terrains
- Aggressive tread design accentuates aesthetics
- Features a protector for convenience
- Road noise is somewhat noticeable

Goodyear Wrangler ArmorTrac Tire Customer Review
John T. says: “I spent weeks looking for tires that can help give my truck a little boost since the ones I had back then were about to be rendered useless. I have always used Goodyear tires, so I had to make a decision between the ArmorTrac and the Silent Armor. I decided to go for the ArmorTrac, and I can gladly say that I’m very happy with its performance. It’s extremely reliable.”John T. posted (5 / 5) review
Andrew G. says: “In my opinion, the ArmorTrac is vastly superior to the Silent Armor. Granted, the latter is a lot quieter, but that’s about it. The ArmorTrac excels in everything else, from great traction on snow and ice to fantastic handling. I also love the rim protector.”Andrew G. posted (5 / 5) review
