Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar
Follow-Up Review: 10,000 miles on tires
February 19, 2014
-Update- Well after 4+ years we finally purchased another set only this time 35s...<br> Thies Kevlar Goodyears are by far the best tires I have ever had...<br> We must have bone about 20 K both on & off road on the old 33s & still sold them for $500.00 to a fellow SE AZ Wheeler to put on his XJ...<br> As I said before & will again If you need new shoes for your rig get the Kevlar MT/Rs <br> We had 1 -One- flat in over 4 years... <br> I didn't even get the Road Hazard Warranty this time because I don't think you can kill them...M...

WOW... WOW... 1 more...WOW !!! Just got them yesterday (33/12.5/15's/Kevlar) & they have passed every test w/flying colors... Replaced the Old-Tread w/the new Kevlar & could not be happyer, We could hardly hear them at all @ 75 mph on the Hwy ... Had a Monsoon in the afternoon & went for a Test-Ripp... Great over standing water on road... Than we went to the local wash & my 98 GRAND CHEROKEE (ZJ) 5.2 AWD/Auto has never went up that stuff as easy before... They Dig & Float over the softest sand... Than we headed for the MUD...WOW !!! I thought the old MT/Rs did good, @ 20 lbs, but the New Tread @ 36 lbs is WAY BETTER... I hardly hit the skinny-pedal & they were Flinging & they track fantaitic, No Drift in 6 to 12++ inches of Sloppy Mud (That same mud filled the old tread to the point of no control & my JEEP would go where it wanted) We had total control... I would guess with the Extra Tread down the center of the tire these will last about 3X longer or more than the old tread... We have 1 more test left for today, Aired Down on the Rocks (Witch is where we spend most of our WHEELIN time) & if they handle the rocks like the old tread I know I will be very pleased... (I will up-date when we get back if I can) As acting VP. of the local Off-Road club, I will tell everyone I know that these are The Ones to buy if they are in need of New Shoes for ANY of thier rig's...WOW !!!
