The Goodyear wrangler RT S tire is
produced for light pickups, SUVs, crossovers, and many new
cars. This tire is popular among some vehicle owners,
but not others. Although many of these tires are
purchased as new replacement tires, wrangler RT S tires are
mainly sold as Original Equipment. This tire is
marketed as a standard load, all season, highway tire.
It is designed for on and off road driving.

continuous tread lug design as beneficial to ensuring a
comfortable, smooth ride and ensuring good on and off road
traction. The radial construction and flat tread
profile are intended to encourage long tread wear and year

skier from New Jersey remarks that his tires have “seen it
