Walmart has a rollback sale on Goodyear Wrangler Trailmark tires, starting at $90 a tire but are they any good?
If you own a Jeep Wrangler, Chevrolet Blazer S-10 or perhaps a Toyota 4Runner, you’re going to need to get some tires sooner or later. According to TireRack, some of the best selling tires for these on-road SUVs include BF Goodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT, Michelin Defender LTX M/S, and Firestone Destination A/T’s. But with Walmart running a sale on Goodyear Wrangler Trailmark Tires for a significant discount compared to the competition, it’s natural to consider this Wal-Mart only offering.
According to Goodyear features of the Trailmarks include, “Off-Road Traction- Deep, open grooves and a wide shoulder profile help evacuate water and mud from the tread for enhanced off-road traction. Quiet Ride- The optimized tread pattern helps provide a quiet ride Wet Traction- The multiple grooves and biting edges help grip the road for confident wet, dry and snow traction.”
Where are Goodyear Wrangler Trailmark tires made?
Unlike the Goodyear Viva 3, another Walmart exclusive offering that are strictly made in China, Wrangler Trailmark tires are made in North America. I’ve come across some older Trailmarks made in Canada but this listing on Tacomaworld shows “Made in U.S.A.”
What are the specs for Wrangler Trailmark Tires?
Are they any good?
It looks like the most popular size for these Wrangler Trailmark tires are 275 60 20 and is where you can find most of the reviews. Based on what I’ve read, the distribution of 27 reviews is strongly skewed towards 4-5 out of 5 stars with a handful of 1-star reviews so I’m lead to believe they are actually an OK if not good option!
According to the latest review published late last month, this 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe owner appreciated the Wrangler Trailmark’s quiet ride and adequate performance.
“I’ve only put a few hundred miles on them and I’ve already had them in some sleet and rain and they have no road noise and ride great. Local Walmart Auto Center was great to work with also. I’ll try and update throughout the life of the set. So far I love them and they look great.”
The latest one-star review mentions how you should probably NOT use these tires on Gravel roads.
“I wish someone would have mentioned gravel is not these tires friends. Less than two months after purchase, driving cautiously on gravel ended up in a puncture. Since it is a ‘road hazard’ that voids the warranty. If you take gravel roads, do NOT buy this tire! You WILL regret it!”
Looking at the tread pattern of this tire, it’s easy to see these aren’t really meant for serious off-roading and in all honesty probably perform their best on-road while still giving you that off-road look.
Looking at other websites with Goodyear Wrangler Trailmark reviews, it looks like the consensus is around the same, Trailmarks are an excellent tire for the price, provide good on-road performance, look great, but probably aren’t for serious mud and snow. Here are the sites I visited with some good reviews.
What’s the warranty like?
When you buy Walmart exclusive offerings, you won’t get a Goodyear Limited Warranty with your tires. That isn’t to say you won’t have a warranty.
According to Walmart, here’s the warranty information for Goodyear Wrangler Trailmarks.
“This Walmart limited treadwear warranty protects the original purchaser from premature tire wear by providing a pro-rata replacement if the tread wears out before reaching the warranted mileage based on your Walmart invoice. The original tread will be considered to be worn down when there are 2/32 of an inch (1.6mm) of tread remaining. You can read the full tire warranty here.
- 55,000 mi. / 80,000 km (P-Metric sizes)
- 45,000 mi. / 70,000 km (LT sizes)
Overall it looks like Wrangler Trailmarks are a solid choice.
