New rubber from Goodyear and Cooper Tires

Goodyear Wrangler AT and Cooper Evolution tyres available

We’ve plucked out some new off-road rubber that has hit the aftermarket recently. Swipe away!

Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac

Goodyear has developed a new all-terrain tyre called the Wrangler AT SilentTrac. Available in a wide range of sizes in both Passenger (P) and Light Truck (LT) constructions, as its name suggests the tyre has been designed to provide quiet and smooth on-road performance thanks to a thick rubber layer under the tread that absorbs vibration, as well as an angled-block tread design.

The tyre provides improved mileage performance compared with its predecessor, the Wrangler AT/SA, thanks to more wearable rubber volume and an optimised cavity shape. As you’d expect of an all-terrain tyre, Goodyear claims tough off-road performance thanks in part to its ‘DuraWall’ technology which consists a robust compound and thick gauge layer to provide resistance against cuts and punctures when driving in off-road terrain. The new Wrangler AT SilentTrac is available in a range of sizes to suit 15-inch rims through to 18-inch rims.

RRP: $199 (205R16) to $379 (285/60R18)

Cooper Evolution M/T

The Cooper Evolution M/T is a new mud-terrain tyre with an 80 per cent off-road bias. It features V-shaped sidewall “climbers” designed to offer added grip on rocks and other slippery surfaces while providing added sidewall protection; deep and wide “mud slingers” between the tread blocks to aid mud clearing and provide extra traction; and a high-strength, high-tensile body ply that’s claimed to be 20 per cent stronger than most other brands for resistance to rock cuts and impact damage when driving off-road.

The Evolution M/T has also been designed to provide optimum cornering and stability on mud and dirt, and it packs the latest generation noise-reduction technology. The Evolution M/T is available in a wide range of sizes to suit rims from 15-inch to 20-inch including popular 31X10.50R15, 285/75R16, 285/70R17 and 275/70R18 sizes. See the website for full size availability.

RRP: From $269
