I think they're a great tire, especially the Kevlar sidewalls. If they offered them in a 33x10.5, I would most likely buy a set.

I ran mine at 5 psi and the sidewalls didn't have very much flex. If you wheel on wet rock thus is a good choice for a tire. If your Jeep is a mall crawler that sees only 10% or less off road then this is the tire for you.

Yes i have. Its comparable to the goodyear for me. Kevlar sidewalls have the edge to me over the coopers. I need a tough sidewall for my needs in a mt. What i use my jeep for is diffrent than alot of other people. Hitting the ohv park and a dd is second to what i use my jeep for.

Are you talking about the Military MTRs you are selling, or MTR/Ks?

Coopers STT are MTs. But its your money/Jeep i was really disappointed in them. I wish GY didn't switch the old school MT/R's were awesome. I just picked up a set today.

The military tires I'm selling are MT's not MT/R's. I'm talking about the MT/R's with Kevlar I hate those tires with a passion. They last 3 months before I sold them and went back to my MTs. I just picked up a set of old school MT/Rs

There are many who wheel JV (big rocks), run successfully with the Goodyear MTR Kevlars

I know I'll get laughed at but the treadwright guard dog is badass, and the price makes it worth it even if you end up not liking them.

Yea I know we all got to start somewhere. Building my first 4x4 resulted in a felony convection. After I did my time I went 6 years before I built my Dodge. I was just as poor as I was dieting my first build but I didn't buy low quality parts. You always get what you pay for. I was just trying to give my review of the MT/R K as we both wheel in the same environment and at some of the same ohv Parks.

I live 4 blocks from work so not allot of miles get logged in the Jeep. Plus these tires come with all sorts of shit talking and joke potential. It's a win win. !

i have ran my MTR's in the mud and rock and have had no issues yet, its mostly down to personal preference but i do agree about the sidewalls being to deep, i want the old hummer tires in 35's
