The Goodyear Wrangler line of all-terrain tires has been one of the most popular and successful off-road/all-terrain tires on the market for a number of decades. Consumer Reports placed it in second place when it graded SUV and all-terrain tires recently. The only reason it placed lower than its competitor was because it has poorer rolling resistance.
