Goodyear Wrangler AT/S and GS-A

I did an extensive search on the forum and didn't see much discussion on these. TireRack is having a sale on the 265/70/17's Goodyear AT/S and Goodyear GSA. I figure they will most likely need some cutting but I think saving the extra $100 plus is worth it. I was wondering what your thoughts were, it looks like the AT/S are the better way to go.

TireRack is in my town, and I don't know if I will find a better buy for $105. I see people are moving to the 255/70/17's but again, for the cost this just seems like a better buy. Notes on me: Live in Northern Indiana with frequent of snow and rain, 2.25" Rocky road lift with spidertrax spacers

I welcome your thoughts, particularly on quality.

That does seem like a really good price. That is the same size (265/70/17) I'm looking at to run with a 2 inch lift and same spacers. I would buy from Tire Rack if I lived close to them. I've been considering the GY Wrangler Silent Armor. From what I hear they might be a better tire but they are also about $70 more per tire than the AT/S. That's a big price difference. So you might want to go with the AT/S. Others may have more information or experience with quality of the AT/S.

Those should work fine with a 2" lift and spacers, I am running the 255/75/17' and only had to trip the front which I ended up removing since I installed the Get Lost 4X4 bumper.

were you referring to cutting the bumper and pinch welds? Also, were you saying the 265/70/17's should work fine?

Thanks! I need to check out some new pics of your XK with the new get lost bumper too. I have been kinda inactive on here the last couple months and have some catching up to do!

Look at the pictures on any of the XKs with the new bumper, we trimmed off the front side of the plastic wheel well, I did not have to do anything with the metal anywhere.

Click the link to my garage to see the new bumper on mine.

Oh, I thought that the rub was in the back half of the wheel well. Looks great!

Sorry for all of the questions, but I was still wondering if you were referring to the 255/0/17 or the 265/70/17's when you said they should work fine?

I had the AT/S on my 97 Grand Cherokee and I thought it was a great tire. That being said, it's a dated technology and IMHO I think that the Wrangler Silent Armors would be a better choice. Just my thoughts....

I think would echo that. I think it was probably a good tire when it came out but the wrangler silent armors are a better over all tire. I have the AT/S on a wrangler and they do ok, but nothing like the Silent armors on my commander.

I have no doubt that the Silent Armor are a better tire, but right now I can't justify the extra $60 - $75 a tire, if the AT/S is indeed a good tire. Now, if you said the AT/S was junk I would think otherwise.

If all things go well with my new job, I would like to bump up to the 4" Superlift in a year or two so I would most likely go with a new set of tires then too. But again, if you think it is a good tire for $105 I may just go with this for now. The customer reviews seem good (cant say that for the GSA)
