I had bought some Goodyear MTR's with Kevlar back a while ago, and I had some problems with them. Apperently there was a flaw in one of the molds and it was not spacing the cords evenly in the sidewall. I had my first tire fail within 300 Kilometers of it being mounted and balanced. The second tire that failed was the one I put on after the first one failed and it was about the same 300km's.

That being said, the Goodyear dealer was being a total pain in the *** about the issue and told me that I had "Hit a Curb" which was complete bull. I spend the next 5 minutes telling him that Goodyear claims this tire to be one of the best off road tires, and it cannot hit a curb?

after pressing the issue and e-mailing both goodyear and the company's head office many times, a goodyear rep was in the area, and came by to see the tire, and he sliced it open and took a look at the cord spacing and he gave the Ok to warrenty BOTH tires that failed. I willl not deal with the retailer again, but goodyear is still good in my books.

I was hoping that someone could get me an actual height measurement on metric equivalent tires. I would like to keep my stock Moabs with a set of Spidertrax and am debating between a 315, 285, and a 305. Wondering what the true heights are? Thanks for the help.

Walked in to Discount tire last week, and walked out with a new set of 35x12.5x15.

Guess the backorder is over, or they just have a bunch of them lying around.

Couple of quick questions for you guys:
1. Did you have trouble getting them balanced?
2. What PSI are you running? I have mine at 26, but they still do not allow the entire tread to touch.

Pressure is probably 26-28, but can't quite remember.

I believe I paid $196 each from tire rack for my 35's back in August.

Finally got to drive these things in a decent snow storm. DC area just got a thick, heavy snow yesterday and road crews failed big time. Most of the roads had 2-3" of snow on them and I didn't have a single problem. Drove mostly in 2wd, but the front was a bit squirrelly, so I threw it in 4HI and it was like driving on bare pavement. Tough to get them to spin, even when the road is slick with sleet. Roads were to the point where cars and even some SUV's couldn't make it up the smallest hills and hundreds of people throughout the area abandoned their cars on the side of the road. I was cruising. Hope to get a much bigger snow to try them out sometime this year.

Most of the posts in this thread have reviewed 35x12.5, 33x12.5, & 285/75R16s.

I plan to keep my Moabs and run Spidertrax spacers. I'm running AEV 3" springs and a 1.25" BL. I do not feel I'm ready to move up to 35s, since I'm still running stock brakes, steering, and axle shafts.

I'm trying to decide between two sizes: 285/75R16 & 305/70R16.

According to the specs listed on TireRack.com, both are a 33.1" tall tire. With the 285s having an 11.3" section width, compared to 12.2" for the 305s. I'm liking the slightly wider 305s due to increased flotation.
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....FR+with+Kevlar

Anyone able to comment on the 305/70 vs 285/75 debate? Any reason I should run or avoid one size versus the other?

Thanks in advance
