same here they arent necessarily stock I guess but the goodyear wrangler radials that the previous owner but own n didnt hardly rotate are awful in rain n comfort. Mine havent been to bad in the stock n offroad for a small AT style tire but still the onroad comfort n rain grip is AWFUL. Putting on my duratracs this coming week/weekend so ive heard nothing but good things from people about theres. So hopefully this changes my opinion with the goodyear tires.

They are embarrassing in rain.

stock on my 01 was wrangler RT/S, my 96 had wrangler AT/S and my F-150 had wrangler AT/S. all were crap so ive grown a hatred towards goodyear tires. ive heard other types are better but i dont care to find out for myself.

For street use the Goodyear Fortera Triple tread does an excellent job for wet and dry conditions and so far the Pennsylvania winter hasn't stopped me yet.
