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.
These tires have amazing performance on snow and dirt. The tread pattern grabs on and off road. Great price.

1.0Won't be buying Goodyear's anymore
Really liked the tires but since Goodyear doesn't make any tires in my size anymore from any of their brands I'm forced to go to their competition

5.0Great tire for our Jeep Wrangler
We had the OEM Tires on our Jeep and they were very loud and not great in the snow. This tire has been a bit improvement.

1.0Won't buy again
I punctured two side walls in two years and are way out of balance. The more I drive them the more out of balance they get, my whole Jeep shakes at 65 mph or higher even with a five tire rotation every 3k miles. With approximately 10k miles I'm taking them off and buying different brand.

5.0On my 4th set of the same tires across two vehicles for a re
I've always told myself I'd try a different set of tires next time I need new tires just to try something new. Every time that day comes I can't get myself to buy anything different. I use these tires on my offroad vehicles, and they hold up to my abuse constantly. Only time I've ever had a flat was when there was a sharp piece of rebar sticking out of a rock I was crawling over. No tire would have survived that though. There has been many times I thought for sure I'd slash a sidewall but it came out unscathed. Hard to beat that durability.
Great tires. Great price. Aggressive look yet surprisingly smooth ride.
4.0Missing Raised white lettering
Kind of unhappy because in the picture it shows there is raised white lettering and I was looking for that for the look on my K5 Blazer. My K5 Blazer is painted two-tone orange and white and the raised white letters what have you looked a lot better then just the black letters!! I have not been able to use the tires in snow yet but I would think they'll be fine. Only unhappy about the raise letters with these tires
2.0pulls left hard
Great tires, except for the fact they pull to the left. Had to swap out.
