They aren't cheap but I just removed my Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip tires and they were very quiet and wore like iron on the street. I didn't think they were ever going to wear put.

My experience: they did great in the desert, on dirt, gravel and mountain trails. They were siped and they did good in the snow but the siping didn't last very long. Once they were worn down past the siping is when they really seemed to start wearing like iron. They did well when aired down in the rocks and felt better than my off brand MT's ever did. I can't really comment on mud as I try to avoid it like an STD but what little mud they did see I have no complaints. Highway manners is what was really impressive considering they aren't a highway tire. I drove them from Kansas City to Vegas and back and they rode smooth and quiet like a highway tread and they always tracked really well. I was sorry to see them go but they finally wore out and I needed to downsize and I was given some 35's away they went.

I'm looking at the Goodyear SilentArmors myself. I like the look, the Warranty, and the price?

When you do go offroading what terrain will you be wheeling in.. anything specific or a little bit of everything.. This can have a great effect on whether or not you can get away with a good aggressive AT but has a weak sidewall like the duratrac or needing something that has a stong 3ply sidewall or even stronger.. The GY MTR-K is a great tire but it also while is built to be road friendly probably isn't your best option when it comes to low road noise and snowy street performance if that is something you deal with

I've just never found anything appealing about it. It's dirty (obviously lol) and a lot of the time it smells like sewage. It tends to find its way into and onto everything. In my experience (friends included) we've needed to winch out more often while in deep mud than we ever have in and on the rocks. I know a lot of people like playing in it but for me...... I'll pass

sand/trail/small amounts of mud dont really plan on doing rocks right now
but it wont get offroading but like maybe once a month....it will be my POV volunteer response vehicle so it might have to go occasionally in the woods though also thats why road being road friendly is most important to me and the low road noise

and ps: "snow performance" is really laughable i live in the coast of SE ga lol

When you ask questions about tires on the forum you're opening pandora's box.

Low road noise is highly subjective. I have Federal Couragia MT's on mine and the sound they make reminds me of the siren on a german dive bomber.



I like it though
It's not very loud and overall they're pretty quiet for an MT, but they do make some noise.

I don't personally know a lot about the kevlars but I know a lot of guys on here are running them and from what I've heard It's a very good tire and they all seem to like it. Hope this helps

So far I have about 1000 miles on a set of 33" Kevlar MTR's and I am VERY happy with them. IMO they are extremely quite for an aggressive MT tire. I have had AT's on past vehicles that made more noise. I have a friend with 33" KM2's and they are louder then my MTR's.

I'm with you on this one. All though around here it's more like sh!t water because of the dry climate. Whenever I'm forced to go through it I act like a little girl, move as far away from the door as I can and go as slow as possible. That crap is nasty, I don't want it on me making me smell like rotten fish mixed with all kinds of animal crap and piss.

OP, I have the kevlars. I don't think you can get any quieter for the aggressiveness you get.

There isn't a radial tire out there like it and if it doesn't have the strongest sidewall for a radial on the market today it's damn close.. excellent choice.. You will be very happy.. Well perhaps in soft sand if you get into that.. but airring down will help you there
