Exclamation WARNING - Good Year Wrangler Silent Armors

Just prior to selling my last truck I had 4 new 275/70 x 18 E Silent Armors installed. The tires looked great, were nice and quiet but felt very wishy washy. The rear end would walk around like I had a flat tire! These were E rated tires with 70 lbs of air in them. When I hooked onto my fifth wheel the slightest breeze or dip would send me all over the road.

I don't recomend these tires to anyone!

I have used alot of the Goodyear GSA'a & HT's (I burn through alot of tires towing a lot of miles). What you are describing sounds exactly like what these tires would do.Ones they settle in after about 5000K, it goes away but it is interesting until that point. A guy I worked with had just put a set on his truck a month before me and was following me right after I had mine put on. We were both towing sizable units and doing about a buck-twenty. He came on the radio laughing to kill himself asking me what was wrong because he was wtching me try to set the truck on the outside line while passing a big truck and it just wouldn't stay there! I probably looked like I was drunk or it was my first time towing. Anyway, it seems to be a Goodyear tire thing on E range tires anyways and it does go away if you can tolerate it that long.

Well I only managed to put on about 4000k prior to selling the King Ranch, but I hope your right for the nice young fellow who bought it.
