Company Website:

The Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar® (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.

Comments: I’ve got a set of these in 35s that are older.
They’ve seen a good share of mixed on road/off. Ive aired down to around 9 psi without any issues. Great traction for what Midwest wheeling offers. Very minimal chunking. I’ve never had a sidewall issue. Were a pain to balance. Just keep an eye on your tire pressure and rotate at some set intervals. Ended up replacing them in the flavor of 37’s

Pros: Tough as nails sidewall, long lasting tread lugs, great tire for off road.
Cons: Road noise, but it's a trade off if you want great off-road performance.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I compared a lot of tires for what I wanted, a capable off road tire that'd be used on slick rock, Colorado Granite, trees, stumps and anything that could puncher or destroy a tire, YET, be decent for daily driving.

While these are designed for off road duty, they actually do fine for daily driving. They're a bit noisy, but not unbearable. After the first week running around town getting groceries and stopping by Target, the noise is no longer even an issue.

Off road, they completely rock. I've run them down to 12psi and they look like they're completely aired up. Sideway barely moves. However, when you push against rocks, your confidence is 100% sure that tire slippage is not going to be an issue.

We've had these tires on a 97' TJ for nearly 5 years and are waiting for them to wear out. I just put them on my JKU and am anticipating a good 4 or more years of usage. Full disclosure, I don't put a lot of miles on my Jeeps, but they'll easily get more than 30K or more before you'll even need to start thinking about replacing them.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Good all around off-road. Good rock/dirt, I'm in the desert so don't run mud often.
Cons: Wears too fast, 30K and time time replace already. Hard to balance, older they got = balanced more often. Pricey.
Recommended? No

Comments: Pro's and Con's says it all, I'd buy them again if they had 3/32 deeper tread from the start or priced quite a bit lower for only getting 30-35k miles out of them.

Pros: Great all round AT tire
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Work in the wireless industry building, upgrading, and integrating cell towers for AT&T Wireless. Spent the last year in the Colorado Rockies and the year before that in Upstate NY. Offroad/fireroads virtually everyday, combined with 200-500 miles of asphalt daily. These tires held up very well in conditions they weren't exactly made for (80 MPH on the interstate fully loaded with armor and equipment/tools). I am on my second set. I allowed the tire pressure to drop too low during Feb in Upstate when the temp dropped below 0' and I was running I-90 from Albany to Buffalo and back. Chopped and cupped them a little bit. My fault not the tire's. Got 38K out of them. On my second set now and getting better life with better care. At 25K with half tread life left.

Price: $1,100.00
Pros: Great off road, look great
Cons: hard to balance, out of round, sidewall failure, awful in snow, bad in heavy rain
Recommended? No

Comments: A week after I purchased these tires I lost a sidewall in a parking lot due to a manufacturing defect. The sidewall just gave out. You could never tell from the outside, but from the inside there was a large, almost 2" bubble protruding into the tire.

I returned the tire to Goodyear and they gave me a replacement... that was out of round. They replaced that one... with another tire that was out of round, but the shop was able to balance it so I took it.

They ride smooth for a while, but I have to get them road force balanced every six months or so. They are wearing very well, but I rotate them at every oil change.

The only good thing I can say about them is that they are excellent off road. Unless there is snow on the ground.

Pros: Dry Traction Snow Traction Mud Traction Dirt Traction Clear out really well in mud, throws chunks of mud not soup.
Cons: Wet Traction: are not amazing in rain on pavement.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Works well in almost every situation. The tougher kevlar belts make the need for a spare less. In mud my friends refuse to wheel behind me. I throw cow pie sized mud at prior, the clear out well.

Comments: I upgraded from the standard BF Goodrich MT on my Rubicon to the Goodyear MTs. The reduction in noise was amazing! Tested them here on the Lava, beach sand, and snow. Preformed as expected, but the difference makes these tires my number one choice by far!

Comments: I run the 37" military ones on my truck and jeep and only ever have to change them out ever 2 years or so and my truck is a 3/4 ton diesel that tows daily. Plus I buy them from military auctions and can usually buy 4 of them for about 250 bucks.
