    Yeah I'd say that's a good deal, my mom had to get tires on her 2006 Aveo today and they cost her $400 for those because they are low profile. Kevlar in the tires hugh? Well they should be bullet resistant then right, ...............just kidding.:lol:

    i think he is talking about the new ones that just came out, we just got a set also and personally i think they are ugly and i have had several customers come in and say they will be buying the BFG KM2s now and goodyear shouldnt of changed there tread design or at least didnt go with that one. around here the looks are just as important if not more then the preformance

    Are those side bitters or just a non fucnctional design?
    I'd be willing to try it out if I were buying a set of wranglers.

    i personally like the new look and have had alot of people comment on the "sweet new tread" but in each his own.

    the wrap around tread does actually server a purpose not just for looks but it does make it look better. cant remember but it good year claims like 30% more sidewall traction over the old MT/R

    they are suppose to preform better then the old MTRs in almost everything and im sure they do, the sidewall is probably my favorite thing about it, and it doesnt help that im not a goodyear fan to begin with.

    Confused on the Kevlar, is it part of the tread or is it in the side walls like a run flat. I have runflats on my wifes Sienna and they ride like a set of rocks. Kevlar in the tread would be awesome, and extend the life to great lengths. And wow $400 for the set, I got charge $225 a tire and that was a deal.

    i think its just in the sidewall which makes sense since thats usually what you will be sliding up against sharp rocks, not so much as a runflat as more of making the rubber compound more durable, a run flat actually has a slime like stuff inside the tire which makes them extremly heavy and stiff which is why they ride like a tank

    you sure they were MTR's? mine are really loud on my jeep and were on my gmc as well.


    and the old MTRs have kevlar too, just throwin it out there. and yes it is in the sidewall
