Yes I have searched.. Not much to be found. Has anyone ran these 31" tires? Ive read good and bad reviews on different websites. But at around 130 bucks a pop it might be worth it to check it out. Unless I get back some bad reviews from you guys on here I might try these out soon. I have to talk to walmart though because I hear they will only mount tires thats sized for your vehicle. Any input would be great and Im sure theres a few of you wondering the same things.

Yeah, there's very little info about them anywhere. I found several reviews on other forums but they were generally very low mileage reviews. Not much in the way of long-term reviews. Here's a thread I started https://blazerforum.com/forum/tires-wheels-13/goodyear-wrangler-authority-50806/, didn't get much input thought but there are a couple people on here who have them (I know of Sisk and Blazinator)

From the searching I had done on them, the majority of the 'bad' reviews were in the 16" sizes. I don't remember finding any bad/poor reviews of the 31" (which I think is also the only one that has the snowflake/mountain rating).

One of the Walmarts here said they have a waiver that releases them from liability when mounting non-stock sizes.

Also, if you have discounttire nearby, they will match prices of online stores. The methods seem to vary by stores, one store here will match the price of the tire+shipping and another store doesn't tack on the shipping charge. It can work out pretty well considering tirerack.com and treadepot.com have some pretty low prices

Let us know how you like them if you end up buying them. They were one of my top choices due to price but I ended up scoring a great deal on craigslist for some different tires.

No discount tire. In fact I have to go two towns over for a walmart with an auto center. If that tells you anything. I think I'm going to give em a shot soley because of the price. If they end up being a good tire trust me... y'all will know about it. And if they end up being junk I will hopefully get my money back!

really? the WalMarts around me have never mentioned any issues with installing the tires i selected. mind you, it's been about 4 years since i last bought tires through WalMart.

as for how well they work.........there's a guy running these on a '97 or '98 Silverado 1500 4WD around town. seems pretty impressed with them all year round. had them on his truck last Winter with no issues (and no weight in the box), and said they tore up the trails/mud he played on.

i think his were 285/75/R16's.

that sucks! hopefully when you're running better, and in a position to get tires, you can find another great deal.

GL with the repairs.

Yeah the wonderful GM CPI woes. Whoever designed these things needs a swift kick in the *********. And I still plan on running these. Can't beat the deal really. I just had to get my own apartment and move out of where I was living with the exs friends (huge mistake) so first is a new fuel spider then I am going to rebuild the front end and get er all aligned and new shocks THEN tires. So maybe by summer time Ill be rolling on em but who knows at this point.
