Off RoadTires with Kevlar from Goodyear

New Goodyear Wrangler MT/R(R) with Kevlar(R) Tackles Off-Road Challenges

The new Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar is the company's first off-road tire built with the rugged toughness of DuPont Kevlar(R) for enhanced sidewall puncture resistance.

The use of Kevlar, an innovative material that is, pound-for-pound, five times stronger than steel, brings superb sidewall cut- and puncture-resistance to an area of the tire that demands extra toughness when driving off-road.
