New Wrangler® Boulder MT™ is engineered for confidence in the toughest terrains, while protecting against damage to sidewalls and treads

AKRON, Ohio, Sept. 21, 2023 – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company today introduced the newest addition to its lineup of hardworking Wrangler® tires, the Wrangler Boulder MT™.

Created for the off-road adventurer and constructed to take on the toughest terrain – including mud, sand and rocks - the Goodyear Wrangler Boulder MT leverages Goodyear’s innovation and technology to help ensure drivers can take on off-road adventures. This tire was engineered with three-ply Duraply Technology™ for confidence over the toughest terrains, while helping protect against damage to sidewalls and treads. The Goodyear Wrangler Boulder MT was also designed with large tread blocks featuring TractiveGroove Technology® for grip, giving drivers the confidence to venture off the beaten path regardless of the terrains.

“Bold off-road adventures require a tire that’s tough enough to withstand rugged terrain, without sacrificing handling or performance,” said Michiel Kramer, director of Product Marketing, Goodyear. “We engineered the Goodyear Wrangler Boulder MT to deliver the long-lasting performance and versatility that off-road enthusiasts need, enabling them to handle whatever adventures come their way.”

Outfitted for a range of SUVs and pick-up trucks, the Goodyear Wrangler Boulder MT is available now in 17 sizes, from 31 to 37 inches outside diameter. Popular vehicle fitments include the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford Bronco, Jeep Wrangler and Toyota Tacoma. Additional benefits and features of the new tire include:

  • Aggressive Shoulder Design with big upper sidewall features for bold curb appeal and enhanced grip in mud and rocks.
  • TractiveGroove Technology® in the large tread block design to help keep the tires moving through difficult mud, sand and rocky terrains.
  • Large Void Tread Design with built-in stone ejectors to defend against stones being trapped in the tread.
  • Three-ply Duraply Technology™ to offer confidence over the toughest terrains, while also helping protect against damage to sidewalls and treads.

Got an alignment today and 4 of these tires were stacked outside the shop's door. They caught my eye. At first I thought they were BFG Krawlers. But saw they were Goodyear, which surprised me. They looked great .
 
I love the look of them. I'm not that knowledgeable about tire fitment. It appears that the closest size they have to the stock Tremor is a 295/70R18. Will this work in place of the stock size tire ok? Was wanting something more aggressive for the next set.

Have 295 70 18 on my stock wheels now. Falken AT3

Everything fits good, no rubbing? Did it affect your speedo much? I too like the Falken AT3's and would consider buying them.
 
Not too bad. I am in the market for tires by spring. I have 22K on the truck and the Duratracs are almost to the wear bars - though there seems to be a good amount of tread left once they hit those wear bars. Considering BFG, Duratracs again, or maybe these. I'd like a tire that deals with snow well too - and I am not sure the duratracs did too well - at least the didn't seem to.

If you were thinking the BGF KO3s, they're available primarily as OE tries on:

Available EXCLUSIVELY on 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor models
Available EXCLUSIVELY on 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD & 2024 GMC Sierra HD models
A recent positive review on Tire Rack from someone installed these on their 2023 F250, but they likely have 20's on their truck.

If I had to replace my tires right now I think I would stick with the Duratracs. So far they have served me well - not too loud, good grip and comfortable ride. I have seen a tiny bit of rear slip in the rain as they wear in but only during spirited driving. I have not snow tested them yet so that may be the deciding factor. All of the other tires seem to have some trade-off and as such a good all-around tire seems to fit the bill for me.

I agree with that. I am curious of the KO3. I had the KO2 on my old HUMMER H2 and it was great - the duratracs did somewhat let me down in the snow - but I am not sure if that's just the type of snow or the truck being so massive!

I experienced that same rear slip in rain w the Duratracs so I tried out the Slippery drive setting and it actually worked really well without making the truck feel sluggish.

In all fairness tho, any empty pickup is gonna slip in even mildly slick conditions. My '87 Ram does it on KO2s and my '51 Chevy does it on Goodrich Silvertowns.
 
- the duratracs did somewhat let me down in the snow
That because of the 1,000 foot pounds of torque. Those of us with only 475 had no problem.

I never used "slippery" on my truck. I will have to try that drive mode this year. I hate the old traction control features - the ones that just cut power. Sounds like this is different.

Yes. From the web page. Same load rating too.

I had a Volvo V50 wagon that had a W mode that did just that. Never used it. The Slippery mode feels like it only mellows out initial takeoff or actual wheel slip.

I tried it this weekend - completely agree with your assessment! It did make a difference and prevented wheel spin while also allowing power!
