    Default Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar

    Anyone running these? I'm up in the air between these and BFG KM2s. I already had a set of 32" KM2s on my Jeep before, and I had no problems with them, but I like the look of the new MT/Rs. That, and I have a coupon for $100 off a set of 4, which works out to about $12 less a tire for the MT/Rs.

    Get the MT/R's and be different......everyone has KM2's.

    KM2s are over rated in my opinion. I've heard nothing but great things about the MTRs.

    I agree. I'm settled on the MTRs. Backordering a set (due in middle of June) next Monday.

    I run the MTR'S on mine and love them. They make enough noise on the road to let you know they are there and quite enough to have a conversation if you want to. They are a heavier tire so be ready for that.

    Just make sure you get them mounted right, something about they have to be mounted white letters out.
    Mine are not and have had no issues, only about 5000 miles on them, and they are in a storage unit now till I get back.

    Just ordered a set of 4, 35x12.5R15. Not sure when they are shipping yet, but got a real good deal on them through 4x4groupbuy.com.

    Post up how much you paid, if you don't mind. I am up in the air on these vs the Cooper SST based on cost alone.

    I paid $905 for the set of 4. Goodyear is doing an $80 rebate on sets that ship before July 15, but I'm using the $100 rebate that I got through NORA. 4x4groupbuy.com gave me an estimated ship date for the third week of June. No matter where I checked these tires out at, they gave me about the same estimated ship date. I guess these tires are on backorder just about everywhere.

    Default Just got some...

    I just got a set of 35's. I put them on my JK Unltd with a 4in ORV lift. A bit bigger than stock, but not overly loud. Made the run from ATL back to Fayetteville, NC with out any issue. Did some light wheeling just to see how the shoes fit, and they fit well. No slip on hills or on wet pavement. Pretty happy, over all.

    There's my 2 cents.
