Goodyear - Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar

The Wrangler MT/R with KevlarŪ (MT/R - Maximum Traction/Reinforced) is Goodyear's Off-Road Maximum Traction tire developed for light truck driving enthusiasts who take off-road traction seriously. The Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar is designed to increase tire toughness when it conquers mud, crawls over rocks and explores trails.

The Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar features a silica rubber tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread design that combines off-road traction with on-road handling and wet traction. Goodyear's advanced mud-flow geometry tread design enhances self-cleaning capabilities while shoulder blocks (which alternate being stepped in and out) and a wraparound tread design on the upper sidewall increase traction in mud, sand, ruts and rocks. The tire's internal structure features twin steel belts and is Goodyear's first off-road tire to incorporate Dupont Kevlar, an innovative material that's, pound for pound, five times stronger than steel. The use of Kevlar sidewall reinforcement brings enhanced cut and puncture resistance to an area of the tire that demands extra toughness when driving off-road (increasing sidewall cut and puncture resistance by about 35% compared to the original Wrangler MT/R). The Kevlar also helps stabilize the sidewalls when drivers return to the pavement for the ride home.

While branded with the M+S symbol, their typical oversize applications, use of extra-large smooth lugs and minimal snow-biting sipes often challenges an Off-Road Maximum Traction tire's on-road wintertime traction in slush, packed snow and on ice.

These tires are really something else. Very aggressive look and action, though no road roar. So far,. as DD, I couldn't be happier with the way they look on my Jeep and the reaction I get from everyone who see them.

Lots of off-road accolades everywhere lead me to buy them. Your mileage may vary, but I am extremely satisfied and can't wait to wear them out.

Just got them today and put about 50 miles on them, mostly in snow that was about 15-18" and not once did i have a problem getting through. Very impressive tire, expensive, but you pay for what you get, you want the best tire ride on GOODYEAR. Ill certainly buy again if they keep putting a smile on my face.

Good tire. I like that these tires are closer to a true 35 than my old BFG KM and even when compared to some friends KM2s mine still look bigger.

I have ran these tires on a few hundered miles of trail now and have not been more impressed with a radial tire. They grib wet logs and rocks great and even snow covered slick rock got suprizing traction. They clean out well in the mud and do will with roots and stumps.



I have recommended these tires to all my friends up here in the PNW.

Great DD tire for those who are more serious off roaders than most. On the street they ride smooth and quite for a MT (I run them at 30 PSI). Where I would normally need 4wd with "SUV" tires, I can climb hills and travel off road in 2wd without a problem. When in 4wd, they'll just hook up and go. Only have about 1K miles on them, but I'm really happy with them so far. Oh im running 285/75/16 LRE, thats about a 33" tire.

I purchased these tire 4000 miles ago. so far it looks like i am going to get about 20,000-25,000 miles out of them. they are quiet for a mud tire that is this aggressive. They ride very well on the street. Clear out off road and are amazingly grippy. I love them so much we are getting a set for the wifes jeep. The only thing is i hope they get better milage than it seems they will.

These tires have low road noise, and great traction off-road. The price is great, especially at tirerack.com. They also have a really unique tread pattern, which I am sure is functional as well as just looks awesome.
