Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar
Initial Review: 20,000 miles on tires
October 03, 2012

Had these on for 20k now. Off road in sandy mud in the Sandhills Gamelands in Hoffman, NC... excellent. Off road in muddy, deep black soil in Plattsburgh, NY... great. Dirt and rock in southern Wyoming... passable. Braking on wet pavement in Jersey City, NJ... scary. Hopping over grass medians on the Garden State Parkway... wonderful.

These tires are wearing evenly and at a good rate. When I put them on, there was a perceivable vibration and rumbling at ultra low speeds on asphalt. That wore off. Around 15k on the tires, they became noisier than I recall, then I rotated them 3,000 miles later and it disappeared. With the aggressive tread, it's weird how quiet they are.

They clear out well after being caked with mud, but they certainly sling it all over the hard to clean areas of the wheel wells and undercarriage.

The price on these is going through the roof... sadly that might make me not re-up on these when they are shot out in another 25k
