Goodyear is taking off-road exploration to new heights with the launch of the adventure-ready Wrangler DuraTrac RT in Australia. An evolution of the original tyre, it features a series of considered updates that bring increased durability and traction.
“For the last 12 years, feedback from customers and dealers about the original Wrangler DuraTrac has consistently been ‘don’t change anything’,” Goodyear Tyres ANZ senior director sales and marketing, Jeremy Hill said.
“We love that, but just like our customers, we also like to explore the limits. Our evolved Wrangler DuraTrac RT keeps all the qualities that make the original so good and pushes even further.”
Benchmarked at Goodyear’s proving ground, the Wrangler DuraTrac RT boasts a 10 per cent improvement in wet handling, a 10 per cent improvement in dry handling and even better off-road performance in mud and sand.
Designed for those who split their driving 70/30 between off-road/on-road, it’s a highly versatile tyre with the ability to cross-over from everyday driving, to the rugged worksite and onto the weekend escape.
It features a new, optimised tread pattern with solid tread blocks and more biting edges provides superior grip and traction in mud and other rugged conditions. A more robust construction and the introduction of a thicker, three-ply sidewall, increases strength.
DuraEdge technology extends deep tread features over the shoulder of the tyre onto the upper sidewall, adding side-biters to enhance traction and delivering greater protection against rocks and extreme off-road hazards as well.
