Goodyear is the best for mall crawling
Can't beat them for that, you will never feel the soccer moms when you run them over

Would also help if you specified what size, and what model of tyre, such as Wrangler M/T or Silent Armour or whatever. Kinda annoys people when the person answering the question for the lazy jackass has to do the thinking when they get no benefit.

Sorry to answer your question, i think the Good Year Wrangler Kevlar (silent armour), has the toughest carcass of any 4wd tyre (without big truck stuff). We run them on the Cruiser ute at the farm and they are bullet proof

In the 33x16.5", size of course.

That's the real question.

Not knowing anyting about the kevlar Goodyears I would like to add. The feedback I have been around over the last few years is that Iroks do well when it is above 95 degrees outside. I've wheeled Iroks. They work well. The only thing I didn't like about them is how bad they chunked and how poor the sidewall protection is.

I looked at buying a TJ back that I sold. He had the 40" Goodyears on it. They look great but I question how well they hook up. Outside of looking at them I have nothing more than that to offer.

To answer you question, cause you actually gave some info unlike the OP. I have run BFG and Goodyear on my rig, with the EXACT same setup, nothing changed but tires. Wheeling the same trails, I've made more stuff with the Goodyears than the BFGs, running 13-14 psi in both tires. Mainly LARGE falls that are ~2 WB lengths tall that I would either have to bump to get up or not make it at all with BFGs, I'd now crawl it or bump it and make it with the Goodyears.

I run MTR kevlars on one rig and Iroks on another. I think the MTRs are a better
all-around tire and have a tougher sidewall.

I run the 37" MTR Kevlars on my heavy ass FJ60.

We mounted them in the shop by hand, aired them up and they ran out smoothly.

Great road manners and when aired down to 8psi, clean out well in the slushy muddy pack I had local to me.

I would buy another set again before Iroks, unless the Iroks were the 43" Stickies

I've ran both on the same rig. I'd take the Goodyears all day long.
