    I have asked them in a message on Facebook and they are reading the messages, but not replying, so I am guessing they have something to hide.

    This is the brochure I was handed clearly giving the 255 55 19 as a tyre size with Kevlar

    I specifically went for these tires due to the sidewalk protection but must admit, I did not think of this.
    It shouldn't make a difference. Easy enough to try, deflate your tyres as you would usually do and drive at the speeds you usually would. Doesn't have to be in sand or on gravel. After about 20-30 minutes stop and check how warm the tyres get. Unless they get really hot, any further distance shouldn't make any difference.

    Today I had the Good Year Adventure fitted to my Discovery 4. I read the tyre shootout and what impressed my most is the sidewall strength due to the Kevlar. So when I looked at the tyres on my car I noticed it didn't have the Kevlar Badge. So I asked the lady at Hi Q and she phoned the rep. He said they don't have the Kevlar in the 19 inch. So according to me the tyre shootout should not be seen as a fair replection of the Good Year Adventure range. Hi Q has brochures of the tyres with Kevlar printed all over and includes the 19 inch in available sizes, yet the tyre does not have it in. I paid R600. 00 more per tyre than the grabber but feel it is false advertising from Good Year. Does anyone else have experience in this?
    The 18" and 19" Adventure tyres most definitely does have Kevlar in them even if the logo is not on the sidewall.

    I have also sent you a PM.

    Maybe helpful

    Below feedback received from Goodyear (took them a while to reply...) Had the same answer from a friend as well...


    Kevlar is a trademark name from the company Dupont for Aramid (material).
    The material used in this size is also an aramid material (similar to Kevlar), but not made by Dupont, which is why the Kevlar logo does not appear.

    Although the tyre does not have the Kevlar logo, it does not make it a weaker tyre in comparison to the ones with the Kevlar logo on the sidewall.

    As with any tyre, the life expectancy depends on several factors:


    • Tyre maintenance: rotation, balance, alignment, pressure
    • Road conditions Ė Amount of off-road vs on-road driving. Note: Wrangler AT Adventure is designed for a maximum of 30% off-road driving.
    • Driving style


    Note - this size above refers to 265/60/R18

    is this tyre a 2-ply or 3-ply? Or is the Kevlar layer equivalent to the 3rd ply?

    Thanks.

    The tyre shop reckons it's not as strong as BFG AT or Cooper Discoverer AT due to this.

    Any thoughts on that?

    If they are offering BFG and Coopers at the same price go for those.

    Make sure the Cooper is LT though
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    The kevlar is supposed to give you the protection of a 3 ply with the flex of a 2 ply

    Yes, not as strong as BFG, but better than the others. Depends on your use. Better for a day to day vehicle.

    I mentioned this to the guy, but he didn't seem convinced... But we'll see, I can't justify paying close to R4k per BFG when 90% of my time is spent on tar.

    Can't someone just push a pressure calibrated pin through a BF A/T, Cooper and a GY with Kevlar to measure and compare the resistance / toughness of the sidewall?

    Good Day Gents,

    Anyone here have some experience with the LT version of these tyres? looking at fitting the 245/75/R16's on my Ranger which will be only -0.31% diffrence compared to the standard tyres R17 tyres.

    I am wondering if its worth going to a 245 to get the Light Truck version. My only concern is the speed rating being only 160kmph, not that I speed all the time but if I do sit on 150kmph on the highway for extended periods I want to know I am safe.

    Thanks,
