Goodyear Wrangler RT/S Tires (Our Review)

Overall Assessment

One of the most notable aspects of the Wrangler RT/S is its tread life. The unique design of the tread ensures even wear, which significantly boosts the tire’s overall durability.

The Goodyear Wrangler RT/S flaunts a symmetric tread pattern with an all-season compound that delivers uncompromising traction on dry, wet, and even snowy terrain. 

Thanks to the circumferential grooves, the Wrangler RT/S is capable of dispersing water quite efficiently, which drastically improves wet traction. The tire also has a set of lateral grooves and slots, which further enhances the tire’s performance in winter.

Moreover, the tire is built to maximize the driver’s comfort and reduce on-road noise with a continuous tread lug design. The two steel belts, coupled with the two-ply polyester cord body, provide the tire with a high level of durability and strength

And while the Goodyear Wrangler RT/S isn’t a dedicated off-road tire, we were impressed with its off-road performance on non-aggressive terrain. Our only complaint with this tire is that it’s only available in 15” and 16” variants only.

Goodyear Wrangler RT/S Tire Customer Review

Frank E. says: “Wet traction could be improved, but it doesn’t rain that much where I live, so it’s not something that I pay a great deal of attention to. I definitely recommend this model for anyone looking for a reliable set of all-season tires.”

Robert M. says: “I have had good traction in heat, cold and rain. Cornering with these tires is something I look forward to and they are grippy around winding roads. No problems and the tread is holding up well after 15,000 miles. Would buy again.”
