Tires Reinforced With Kevlar

Kevlar is used to make bulletproof vests and is now available in off-road tires from Goodyear. Fortera and Wrangler SilentArmor tires are designed for four wheelers who need a good road tire most of the time, but occasionally go off-road, too.
  "They're ideal for farmers who run on and off the road all the time," says Jim Davis, manager PR, Goodyear North American Operations. "Most of them don't want a severe off-road tire. The technology behind the SilentArmor tire makes it a tough yet comfortable tire. The Kevlar gives it extra strength and soaks up road noise for a quieter ride."
  The SilentArmor technology features two high tensile steel belts with a layer of DuPont Kevlar. The sidewall is reinforced with Goodyear's Durawall rubber compound, which also resists punctures and cuts.
  The new Wrangler is available in 24 sizes with rim diameters of 15 to 17 in. It also contains unique traction ridges between the treads to help with wet and muddy conditions.
