I had been really interested in these in 37s when I last bought tires. I went with the pitbull rockers and am very happy. So now that this latest batch is out, are they any better as far as balancing? There were numerous nightmare stories about balancing issues. Just curious if goodyear has worked out the issues with this latest run.

I put mine on in September and they were good till about 8k miles, from there they started to get out of balance and got progressively worse.

The MTRs suck on the road. Period. Maybe some
Have had luck with em, but the majority of people, myself included, have not been pleased with them. There are so many other good options available why bother with the MTRs w K. My opinion. I know once these 35s where out I will not be buying these again. Ill probably go back to the KM2s or Nitto's

eh...I love mine on and off road, never a balance issue, although looks like I'll be lucky to get 30k i ride them hard, often improperly inflated and infrequenlty rotated. Maybe the issues are with larger sets, mine are weeny 285s after all

My Mud Grapplers were the smoothest tire I've run on the highway, also the loudest, but still smoothest, with no weights. I agree the MTRs suck on the highway. Ive had them in 35s, and they sucked, but it seemed everyone had issues with the 35s and not 37s, so I tried them, and they are only marginally better. Anyone wanna trade 37" MTR Kevlars for 37" mud grapplers?

not to hijack but:nono-1: how do you like the nittos in rocks and in terms of hydroplaning. I find the mtrs excellent in this regard and I think we wheel the same areas......

The Nittos were better in deep snow, better in rocks, better in mud, and I never once had hydro planing issues. I ran them for 35k miles or so. They had more siping than the MTRs do.

The nice think about the MTR Ks is their low weight. I run Pitbull Rockers and love them. The MTRs also seem to be very hit and miss. Some folks love them and have no issues. Some cannot balance them and have really a bad ride. My hope was that the issues were worked out with the newer runs of the tires.

The low weight is a plus. I went from 18" spyderlocks and 35" mud grapplers, to 17" Racelines and 35" MTR K's, to 37" MTR K's and the 37" on Racelines is a good bit lighter, and I'm getting better fuel economy on 37".
