Goodyear Kevlar

Just wondering if anyone has major tread block damage with this brand. Situation: mate has 2 Kevlars mounted on rear of Troopie and BFG muds on front - trip to Kimberley had slight chipping then recent VHC trip running 28psi has caused severe tread damage. Vehicle was never bogged with tyres spinning on rocks which is as the damage appears . No damage on the front tyres & yes, was in 4wd.
Cheers John

What was the weight distribution like. I know I have vastly more weight on the rear axle and this causes increased running temperatures and wear.

If I was your mate I would take the tyre off now and check for heat damage as running at 28psi seems very low

what was the load in the back?????

we had a slow leak in van tyre 2 months ago and just 8-10 psi down caused carcass falure of tyre, it happens (not Kevlar tyre in this case though)

The tyres were at 28 psi crawling up and down steep sections of the VHC. Tyre monitors in use with no excessive heat build up at anytime. Beaurepaires who supplied the tyres commented that the rubber was maybe too hard not allowing flexing. They are going to check the casings fully.
