Goodyear & Dunlop Tyres Australia has unveiled the Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac – a 4×4 tyre the company says is ‘tailored for the hard-working vehicles of today’s modern tradesman, while also suiting recreational drivers with a strong desire for adventure and the freedom to explore with full control over their driving experience’.
The company says the Wrangler AT SilentTrac is designed to be tough while delivering a smooth drive, as well as excellent on and off-road handling performance. The tyre features an upgraded DuraWall Technology to withstand rugged off-road use by resisting cuts and tears. Improved rigid shoulder blocks and optimised tread pattern are designed to deliver strength and reduced road noise.
Further features include a wide load range, improved wet braking performance, a large contact area for superior braking performance and a stiffer foundation of its solid shoulders for heavy handling.
“We are ecstatic to release our latest innovation in the Asia Pacific to fulfill the needs of 4×4 drivers who want to experience excellent performance both on and off-road,” said Ryan Patterson, Goodyear Asia Pacific President. “As the Wrangler AT SilentTrac outperforms its predecessor, and even major competitors, we are confident that this marvelous new product will further empower our drivers to go further.
“Our long heritage in the 4×4 segment and proven track record in developing award-winning 4×4 and SUV tyres enabled us to create the latest Wrangler AT SilentTrac, a tyre that allows mid-value consumers to drive confidently with increased traction and toughness for an enjoyable and silent driving experience.”
The new Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac is designed to deliver the following benefits:
- All-Terrain Performance: Designed with DuraWall technology, the robust compound and thick gauge layer provide greater resistance against cuts and punctures for off-road terrains.
- Quiet Performance: A thick rubber layer under the tread to absorb vibration and an angled blocks tread design combine to deliver superior on-road quiet performance.
- Mileage Performance: with more wearable rubber volume and optimised cavity shape, the Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac is designed for superior mileage performance.
The Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac is available in 15 to 18 rim diameters in 23 sizes, including 14 for 4×4 passenger vehicles and 9 for 4×4 light truck vehicles.
