Tell me I didn't make a misstake....

My Jeep is 90% DD with offroading once a month or so. I need to get good road manners in rain and snow covered roads as I drive in sales for work. I have had Nitto Terra Grappler AT's for the last 2 years and they have been great on the road, but lack a bit on the trails.

I just ordered Goodyear MT/R Kevlars in a 35" size....Do you guys think I will be OK.....

Man....I don't understand why I am overthinking this so much

How about some road tires, and run the 35s for the trail?

From what I read though you'll be fine.

I suggest that you just give me the MT/Rs and buy a set of cheap Kumhos for the JK.


(I'm kidding... you will be fine)

You will love them! If you want quiet, mount them white wall out (as recommended), but if scuffing of the white walls bothers you and noise doesn't, mount them black side out.

If you look at the tread on these tires, they are kind of a funky pattern. One half looks more agressive, while the other half looks almost like an AT.

Here's a pic

I have these tires in 35" and use them as a DD, but in the winter months here I have my stock rubicon 32's that I use. I don't know about the white wall comment because both sides of mine are black, but the tires have to be mounted a specific way which is stamped on the tires. These are great tires and really like these better than my other Jeep with KM2's.

Are you saying that they're directional tires?
