Also, your gas mileage will probably go down because of the size and weight: they are heavy.

My Rubi had the 35's on M/T Classic Locks with 4" long arms and a 1" body lift. With the lockers on & those tires, the Rubi was a great rock climber.

Beadlocks are not street legal, although people do use them. Plus they are a bear if not impossible to balance.

There are some DOT approved beadlocks out there. AEV Pintler Beadlocks for one. That being said they are a pain in the ass to maintain and balance. I'd only run them on a vehicle that spent more time offroad than on.

I'm also running 35" MTRKs on my '11 JKU Rubi and they handle pretty well..I don't have any highway wander with them on, but they are a bit louder than the stock BFGs. But thats not my daily driver so its not a big deal, and even if it was I think I could live with it....just wish they had more siping or maybe setup to accept studs for snow so I wouldn't have to swap them out.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar?

bringing back a thread from the dead here but any updates on these after having them on for a few months? These might be my next tire.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar?

I've just put these on mine. I love them. Awesome off road performance. I've had no rubbing issues at all. The tires do hum a bit on the road, but not as bad as I was expecting. IMO these are the tires that should come with the GC.

Re: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar?

I've been dormant for a bit on the forums but just wanted to update on tire usage. Still love em! I normally drive on the 20's but put these on the rare case that I go to play in the dirt.

Took them off road to the sandstone canyons. Kicking around the corners then flooring it to hear the HEMI growl put a perm-a-grin on my face

Grip is awesome and they held up great to some really hard (unseen) ruts and rocks that I hit going about 40.

Here are some pics from the iPhone:

Re: Goodyear Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar?

bump from the dead.

So can u run this height tire on normal settings, I assume you can, just always see pics of it lifted.

I have some experience with the MT/Rs, but I had them on a heavy truck (09 F250 Crew 4x4). I got about 8k on em before the taller tread was even with the shorter tread in the center. Granted my truck was like 8700 lbs and I used em on the street a lot, but Goodyear refunded most of my $$$ back after 8k cause they weren't holding up to plan.
