Cool Goodyear Wranger Radial good or not?

I just got back from wally world where I had to buy 2 tires, I was up in the woods and ran over something cause both of my tires had deep slices cut in the sidewall, I know they wasnt there when I washed my truck yesterday, any way I wasn't able to buy 4 31x10.5wranger authority thats I have been eyeballin, so I had to settle for just two stock size (235 75 15)wranger radials, I have had the goodyear tracker 2 tire before and I didnt care for those at all, The tires I just bought have a better tread pattern than the tracker 2 tires so what I'm askin is did I just waste my money or are they a pretty good tire on and offroad, should I go ahead and buy 2 more for the back and wear the whole set out or just go ahead with the authoritys?

I had Wrangler RT-S on my Ranger when I got it. They weren't the best off road but they weren't horrible. They did well enough almost everywhere except really sticky mud. The were awesome on the street too. Rode quietly and smoothly down the road.

from my experience with the goodyear wranglers i would shy away from them, they are terrible in the rain, snow, slush, sand, mud, dirt and even dry pavement! i hated every mile i had to put on the ones that where on my truck when i got it. just my 2 pennys.

I didn't have my stock Goodyear Wrangler's on my truck too long, but they performed fine... granted, this was in sunny & dry southern California, so I have no idea how they would hold up to any other elements.

I know that by far the general consensus is that the stock Goodyear tires are crap. I would shy away from them simply due to all of the negative reviews.

Its a shame the GY DuraTrac's have a negative review as well, they were one tire I would have tried.
