Anyone running Khumo Road Venture A/T's?

The michelin's on my '99 are pretty much done, and are all dry rotted and cracked. Needless to say time for new tires. I need a good set of tires as i'm going into another lovely NE Ohio winter and my 4x4 is pretty much out of comission ( it still engages, but clunks like it's about to fall apart, mechanic says i need a new transfer case.....at 64,300, and I don't have the money to repair it). I still have 4x4 but only on an absolutely need to use it basis. I can get a set of 265/75/16 Khumo road venture A/T's at a good price but i wanted to know if any of you guys ran them and how they were. Let me know what you think of 'em. Thanks

yeah it's got 64,381 on it right now, bought it last halloween with 49,500. an older fireman had it before me, didn't drive it much. I love it but she's racked up about $1500 in repair bills in the year i've had it, and now the transfer case, but I can't bear to get rid of her.

you can probably pick one up at a JY for resonably cheap..

I didn't have any issues with my truck that haven't been a result of my abuse, and i have double the miles.

My truck has the off road package and is completely stock, door sticker calls for 245/75/16's and that's what's on it. I want to move up to 265/75/16. Would that be good or is that too big for stock?

I've got no idea, there's a tire size chart on here and a search button.. not tryin' to be an *** but everyone's gonna flame ya if you start a thread.

i went from stock, to body lifted on 33s to RCD on 35s to SAS'd and staying at 35s possibly trying out 36s or 37s... no more of that metric bs for me.

Those will be fine, you can run a 285 if you wanted.
