Kumho tires

Anyone had any experiences with Kumho Venture MT's? Buddy of mine's got a set of 31x10.5r15, with about 90% tread left that he wants to sell me for $300. Anyone know if they're good tires, or would I be better sticking with my BFG Radial All Terrains?

I have heard good things about them, such as good tread life and decent in the mud. Havent had any personal experience with them though. But I think you should go for it. Good luck.

Thats a bit high.. I would offer 200$

The reason being I can get them for <100$ installed new.

thats 400 installed new... with warrenty.

Now you are getting used... no warrenty.. and paying mount and balance
also no free rotation/balance.

So if you paid 300$ + mount and balance= 350$ ish for used.... isnt good deal.

yeah... i agree that might be a little too high... but ive also been curious about buying a set of those same tires, and from what ive heard, theyve got one longest lasting mud tires... and they arent too expensive, and they perform pretty well for the money. besides that... they look pretty good and knobby

300cdn would be about? 240$ american?
I dont know how much those tires cost up there new...

I have heard them compared favorably to BFG mud terrains by
Major magazines there were alot of reviews when they first hit the scene.

They were saying basically CHEAP.. and able to take alot of abuse.

I'm running on Kumho Venture MT's. There great tires and very reasonably priced.

Heres a tire comparison chart on different brands including Kumho MT's:

Go for it, im on my 2nd set of kumho's, first set was street tires on the truck, now some on the car, they lasted a good while, with alot of abuse.

I only guess the m/t would be just as good.

Dont let John N3ELZ see this post, he'll email the admins to get you banned for not buying american.
