4 Goodyear Wrangler Radial MT/R tires

Got a chance to get some tires for my GC I have BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A on it now They have been great tires. Have any of you run these Goodyear Wrangler Radial MT/R tires? They are the same size as my old tires.

These are one of the several most popular tires out there for Jeepers who wheel. Tens of thousands of people swear by them on and off road. Go for it.

Between my 2 jeeps I have had 4 sets. Currently have 32's on my ZJ and 35s on my TJ. As stated above, they are very good rock tires with a strong sidewall. However, they are not so good in mud and they are soft compound and wear kinda quick on pavement. They look good and are not overly loud on the road.

It just goes to show you can't always tell the depth of the well by the length of the handle on the pump.

I've had 2 sets of MTRs. They are a great all around tire, even for on road use.

I put 50k miles on a set of 33s and they still had tread left, enough for me to get $250 out of them.

My current set of 35s have 40k miles on them and they are about due to be replaced. They would have made it 50k or more if I wouldn't have drove with the front end out of alignment for so long.

I haven't wheeled mine yet, but their on road characteristics are atrocious, and they are wearing very crappy for me. I would never buy them again

That being said there are alot of others who love them and alot of others who hate them

It was my DD at the time and I drive on Michigan roads.

What PSI are you running? How long have you had them and if long enough, how often do you rotate?

I've only had them for 3k miles and I just rotated them...they were used, but had 18/32th's when I got them, over the passed 3k they're down to 16/32ths.

They're at 32 psi

My last set of tires were MT/Rs. Off pavement I loved them, on-road I thought they could have been better. Their soft compound led to some chunking of the treads and fast wear. I would get them again if I found a great deal on them, but for a DD that does weekend warrior duties offroad I think there are better choices. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to put them on a rig that sees mostly offroad conditions.

Thought I was going to get them but they want to much for them being used. May look into getting these when I need tires. Thanks for the help
