    If you’re like most drivers of SUVs and light trucks, chances are your truck doesn’t go off-road a lot on logging trails, job sites, or muddy roads. If that sounds like your situation, you probably already know that all-season light truck tires make the most sense. Like all-season tires for cars, they’re designed for versatility, meaning year-round traction, long tread life with good wear properties, durability, predictable handling, good road manners, and a quiet, compliant ride. All-season tires for light trucks and SUVs come in at every price point imaginable, usually as a caveat emptor situation where price and quality are tied to each other.

    Then you have tires like the Eldorado Wild Spirit HST, a tire that delivers premium-level performance and value but at a more affordable price. The Wild Spirit HST is a tire that outperforms expectations, but don’t just take our word for it here – let’s go in for a closer look with this Eldorado Wild Spirit HST review.

    Features and Benefits

    Here are a few of the bullet points that make the Eldorado Wild Spirit HST a standout:

    • A dense network of full-depth sipes, which are hair-thin slits that multiply traction with hundreds of biting edges, increase friction through standing water, slush, or snow
    • Closed shoulder design aids in handling by resisting the G-forces of cornering and also helps keep road noise low
    • Solid center rib enhances steering response as well as straight-line stability and road manners on the highway
    • 5-rib tread pattern reduces the risk of hydroplaning on wet roads, with four wide circumferential grooves that evacuate water from the tire’s contact patch
    • Advanced rubber formulation for long, even wear
    • Tread pitch is computer tuned to neutralize certain frequencies and resonances, keeping road noise low
    • Backed by a 65,000 mile limited manufacturer tread life warranty
    • The footprint is redesigned and optimized to put more rubber in contact with the road for shorter braking distances, even wear, confident handling, and steering response
    • Lateral tread grooves are precision aligned to encourage even wear, and great traction on wet or dry pavement
    • Available in a wide range of sizes for various fitments.

    Pros and Cons

    So, is this Eldorado tire the right choice for your ride and budget? Before you decide, let’s take a look at the tire’s pros and cons.

    • Ride quality is comfortable
    • Capable traction on wet or dry pavement

    SimpleTire’s view on Eldorado Wild Spirit HST tires

    On the road, we like the Eldorado Wild Spirit HST’s stability and straight-line road manners that are as steady as an armored car. That’s the kind of thing that makes a lot of difference on long road trips when you don’t have to constantly be correcting to keep pointed straight. Response to driver commands is direct and nimble without being overly sensitive or touchy. Ride quality is as refined as an automotive Grand Touring tire, and the silica-rich tread formulation is designed for improved traction in wet weather as well as for long wear. Speaking of long wear, a 65,000 mile warranty for a tire in this price range is pretty exceptional.

    The Eldorado Wild Spirit HST is part of a generation of all-season light truck tires that are truly designed for the performance, power, torque, and handling of today’s trucks and SUVs. It’s our opinion that the Eldorado Wild Spirit HST presents great value and strong performance as a replacement tire or even an upgrade for your truck.
