Anybody running 35 x 12.50's GoodYear Kevlar MTR on a SUA CJ7?

Going up to 35's this go round on tires. I have had the 33x12.50 original BFG MT's on my jeep forever. After looking over the options I cant afford Toyo OC MT's so its looking like the GY Kevlar MTRs this go round.

Anybody running these? How do you like them? Pics? Thanks.

I'm running them on my YJ in 35". I've upgraded to 44's front and rear with 4.10's and a detroit and a grizzly. I'm also still have a stock 4.2, weber and HEI and a 5 speed, ax-15. I ran them on 2 shake down rides, no traction issues, reasonably quiet on the highway. I'm running them on a 8" wheel, 4" back spacing, 3.5" springs, 1' bl, 1/2 boom shackles. I know it's not a 7 but any info is better than no info. Small amount of rubbing on rear fenders on full stuff, I haven't trimmed anything yet. Ron

Thanks for the info. I have 4.56's and I think the 35s will be well suited for that gearing. I am lifted 4" but will probably end up have to get a body lift though. They are great looking tires and apparently they are good performers as well.

I am happy with mine so far, I have only wheeled Moab with them but they worked great. I am running a 3" Black Diamond lift and 1" BL with 4.88 gears. I use Genright front fenders to get the needed clearance and found that I need to trim the rear some more.

I wish i'd gone with 4.56 when I built the axles. On the trail I find myself between gears, 1st to low, 2nd to high. 4.56 would have matched up better for the type of wheeling I do in Ohio. Good Luck, Ron
