The Goodyear Wrangler MTR With Kevlar tire has an asymmetrical tread design and the DuPont Kevlar reinforced sidewalls promises to be a contender in the hot MT tire market. Goodyear says using Kevlar increases sidewall toughness and puncture resistance by 35 percent. It also helps reinforce the sidewall for on-pavement driving. The asymmetrical tread design looks directional, but Goodyear says the tires are NOT directional, can run either way and have been tested that way. For those who don't like white lettering, the new MTR with Kevlar might disappoint, as many sizes will have white outline lettering. That means white outline letters out, ready to be scraped into white sidewalls by rocks. The larger sizes up to 42 inches, will have black lettering, so that will be fine. The silica tread compound enhances wet traction and the durometer seems to be between the old MTR and the sticky comp tires Goodyear has built. The rubber feels soft and supple when doing the old twist and fingernail tread test (scientific test procedure). The Goodyear MTR with Kevlar is a very competent tire and worthy descendent of the Wrangler MT and MTR.
Hello I understand theses tires are a mt tire but compare to the super swampers tsl bias( no grip an bad handling in snow) how do they handle in the snow and ice if they have to to be driven on the roads. Thx. Owner of a 89 Chevy s10 ext cab 4x4-350 motor swap pro comp shocks all the way around 2" shackles in rear. Nothing special.

Yes, the Goodyear MT/R does awesome in the snow and ice. I use this same tire on my Jeep and do a lot of 4 wheeling in the snow up to 3'. You will like them. Thank you for the question.

If I purchase this item...Can I pick up or have them installed at the Reno, Nevada store? I live close by there and would like to see if it can be a one stop shop...If so what would the cash price be for all 5 tires with installation?

Yes, you can pick up the tires directly from the store. Please add tires to shipping cart and follow the prompts. That will give you a total. Thank you.
Do these tires come with rims?

Wj_doggy, thank you for your inquiry on the Goodyear Tires 31x10.50R-15LT, Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar Tire by Goodyear. The item that you are looking at online will only be the price for (1) tire. The rims are not included with the tire price.
We can order rims to go with your tires, but rims are sold separately.
