Been testing tires

So a couple months ago I bought new tires for my new lift. The tires are 33x12.50 Goodyear MTR Kevlar. I've had the chance to break them in on both dry side roads and highways, and on snow and ice on mainly side roads (for now). Anyways, we all know that our TJ's don't have ABS, unless you installed one but mine doesn't. Coming home on dry roads I had to slam on the brakes since the light turned yellow and I was probably no more than 10 feet away. Needless to say, I stopped short of the line without my tires locking up. And coming home today after our great snow yesterday I decided to test the tires again. My apartment has an underground garage with a ramp leading into it. Now granted both sides of the ramp are concrete so either way, it's hopefully gonna be light damage to the wall and my jeep. So me wanting to test the tires on ice, already know they do excellent in snow, I went no more than about 12 mph down the ramp and slammed the brakes. What happened? I slid maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inches then stopped completely. SCORE!!! .

These are tires I would definitely recommend. Excellent gripping, and granted I did not get the extra siping. Cannot wait to take these tires on an actual off road course.

They don't self clean mud all that well for having an "MT" on em, and you can get better tires for rock, but being someone who wheels all sorts of different terrain, I don't plan on running anything else definitely a good "anything anywhere" tire.

I love em on sand. I don't even air down on the dunes anymore.

And everyone has their own opinions on different tires and wheels, which makes us all unique . Gotta love though all the styles and choices of wheels.

I have them in the 35" flavor.

Look at black magic pads and centric rotors. That combo will really make you stop. They beat out EBC yellow by a lot. The only thing better is vanco brake system which is expensive.
