    37\" Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs on 15x10 589\'s??

    Ok, get out your back-issues of 4 Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazines. Find October 2001. Green TJ cover story - page 68. The authors say this Jeep has "37-inch Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs wrapped around 15x10 Eagle 589's with champion beadlocks". Is this a typo or is Goodyear producing this size and not advertising it?

    Re: 37\" Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs on 15x10 589\'s??

    I was under the impression they were only available in 15" for people in the ARCA. I know the pulbic can buy the 37x12.5x17 for an outragous price. This was on POR the other day:

    TOPEKA, Kan., March 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In a dramatic move into ``extreme'' vehicle niches, Goodyear announced today that its Wrangler MT/R sizing is expanding into 37-inch tire sizes in 15-inch-wheel diameters.

    Company officials said the much-anticipated 37x12.50R15 LT tire will be available at retailers nationwide in April.

    Manufacturing such a large tire in Topeka, the most ``extreme'' U.S. Goodyear plant, was part of the plan when the Wrangler MT/R was first introduced two years ago. The Topeka plant began manufacturing large earthmover tires, known as OTR tires, in the 1980s.

    These massive OTR tires -- some approaching 10 to 12 feet high -- are used on dump trucks, mobile cranes, scrapers, dozers, loaders and motor graders and in mine service and port container handling.

    Topeka also produces medium radial truck tires for use on tractor-trailer rigs.

    The most requested size from off-road enthusiasts is the 37x12.50R15 LT Wrangler MT/R tire, which helped win the championship at the Goodyear/Skyjacker Extreme Rock Crawling Nationals last year, according to Mark Cherveny, product manager for light-truck tires.

    A pre-production 37-inch size for the rock-crawling series was made at Goodyear's Technical Center in Akron, Ohio. The 2002 series begins March 15 in Farmington, N.M.

    ``As the sport of off-roading grows and evolves, enthusiasts are asking for larger tires. Not long ago, the 31x10.50R15 LT and 33x12.50R15 LT tires were considered large. Now the 35- and 37-inch tires are in demand.

    ``The Wrangler MT/R tire is perfect for ultra-sizing, given its puncture- resistant Durawall sidewall technology and its ultra-durability on the rocks,'' Cherveny said.

    The Wrangler MT/R (maximum traction/reinforced) all-season off-road tire features the breakthrough patented Durawall sidewall construction that contains a high-tech silica compound and three polyester plies for outstanding cut-, tear- and puncture-resistance.

    Topeka plant officials credited teamwork with getting the new Wrangler MT/R size into production. One of the first issues to tackle, according to Eugene Cooke, radial truck tire business center manager, was to find equipment to build a 15-inch tire -- small by Topeka standards.

    Twenty Wrangler MT/R tire sizes now are available in 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheel diameters. While the bulk of the sizes are made at the company's facility in Fayetteville, N.C., the largest Wrangler MT/R 37x12.50R17 LT size is made in Topeka for Hummer military and civilian vehicles.

    I grabbed Peterson's 4Wheel & Off - Road magazine (April 2002) last night. I found no listing for 37x12.5x15. What page did you see them on? Maybe you were looking at the 17's.?

    I can vouch that goodyear makes these tires. This weekend I won a set of them in a raffle during the Chile Challenge, and the 37x12.50x15's were one of the sizes listed that I could get. Just had to gloat! Z.
