goodyear MT/R

I was recently informed that the price for one of this Goodyear MT/R tires starts at MR600 and it goes higher relatively with
the diameter. MR600 is equivalent to US$150 a piece.

What do you guys pay?

Thanks.

Re: goodyear MT/R

A 31" tire is over $160 and a 35" is about $200. They are very over priced if you ask me.

Re: goodyear MT/R

Last time I checked, http://tirerack.com had the 33x12.50's for $149. They're a good tire from what I've heard, thinking about trying a set myself.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: goodyear MT/R

A bit overpriced but a great performer. I went up this nasty slick muddy hill that my friend with swamper tsx's couldnt make and alot easier and smoother then a TJ with 37-13 boggers. They also both blew a bead on our 1st muddy hill 2 minutes into the trail SX's were at 5 psi boggers at 8 and my MTRs at 6

Re: goodyear MT/R

Thanks for all your response. I guess I've now got to think real hard if I should spend so much on tires.Buying 4 of these
tires would mean one month's salary....and that's bad...

Re: goodyear MT/R

The MT/R's are a great tire, but if you're going to be spending that much money on a set of tires, you may as well get some Super Swamper SSR's, which outperform basically everything on the trail, yet are super-friendly on the road.

Re: goodyear MT/R

If you go with the SSR's, make sure of the tire size.
They run bigger then other Swampers.
My 33 X 12.50 TSL R's are about the same size as the 32 X 11.50 SSR.
The 33 is close to alot of 35's out there.

Re: goodyear MT/R

Geoff and Gary,

Thanks for the response. We don't have the super swamper brand here in Malaysia as far as I know. and the popular
brands are like BFG, Yokohama, Dunlop, Simex and Goodyears
