Goodyear Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar?
 
I ordered and am awaiting my 2012 Deep Cherry Red Overland 4x4 HEMI. I already purchased the skid plates and tow hooks from Just4Jeeps.com (great customer service!) and purchased some 18" painted silver take-off wheels from a forum member (which I will be powder-coating flat black).

For the offroad tires I'm pretty set on the 275/65/18 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R w/ Kevlar since there are no BFG MTs that fit the Quadra-lift suspension.

Has anyone installed these on their WK2 yet? Any pictures or fitment issues? They are 32" and others have fit the BFG All Terrain in the same size with no issues so I'm hoping all will be good.

Nice 2nd choice. I like those. Black wall of course.

No info on fitment but a great tire, WHITE OUT of course. LOL I am a fan of showing off the huge Goodyear Letters.

Update:

They fit! Got a set of stock 18s powder coated matte black and they turned out better than I hoped. The pictures don't do them justice!

I just put the wheels and tires on tonight so all I have is a preview in the form of a night shot...more to come tomorrow.

Tested all heights and there seems to be no rubbing (even enter/exit mode).
The picture was taken in ORII. :D

Looks awesome! IMO black lug nuts would look good with them.

Looks fantastic! I thought you were getting a red WK2?

The black lug nuts shipped Friday, should have them this week :)

Yeah, I was getting a red 2012 until I realized the transmissions were virtually the same and the 2012 wouldn't have the ELSD. Saved some money and got more for it. Win-win.

Tires look GREAT!
What are the advantages and disadvantages of these compared to Goodyear Silent Armor, LTX A/T 2, BFG All Terrain (or Mud Terrain) or Duratrack (sp)?
How noisy are they?
Why not go for bead lock wheels?
Thanks in advance for any info!

Looks great man! Any chance you could post some pics with the new rims and tires in the daytime?

Still need to take some better pics, but here is a quick shot I took during lunch.
