I saw these things today on a 2500HD with a ?" RCD lift. WOW!! What an aggressive looking tire. This guy was running 315/75/16s and it looked great. I wish I hadn't jumped into the Big O XTs so quick, but there still probably less noisy.
Are you talking about the Good Year MT/R's or just the M/T's. The MT/R's are the newest tire from Good Year. It's a really good rock crawling tire bc it has a puncture resistent side wall, and it's a very aggressive tire.I was looking in my Jan '02 issue of Four Wheeler magazine and they tested the MT/R. The rating goes like this....one * being bad and five * being great
They are a all aroung good tire. They also said the handling on pavement is superior and the road noise, is quite low.
I run 35/12.50/15 GoodYear MT/R's on 15x8 Weld Racing wheels...and I LOVE em'!!! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/bigthumbup.gif"> These tires are awesome all around...and for being such an agressive tire, they are considerably quiet on the pavement! I'll probably buy another set once the ones I have now wear down, but the 37" version. You can see a picture of my truck on my homepage: <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif">
Im going to research the actual height of the 37's. The Skyjacker lift can accomodate up to a 36" tire, and the 37" MT/R are actually 36.something?, so they may fit without any height modifications. The gears I have now are factory 3.91, but if I go with 37's, I may have to go with 4.56 gears.
