    Throwing this out there.

    The Notice "ALERT" I have seen, states "Goodyear Wrangler MT/R" tires. You said "MT" .....Just throwing that out there to be precise..

    Is there a difference in the "MT/R" as described in the alert notice, and the "MT" only tires?? My tires have only "MT" on them, not "MT/R"

    Yes they are two totally different tires. There is no safety notice on the Goodyear MT or the BFG Baja tires. The safety notice is only on the D and E load range MT/R. The tire says the type on the sidewall. 95 percent of surplus HMMWVs have the regular plain MT tire on them.
