kumho m/t?

has anyone had any thoughts on the kumho road venture m/t. the prices are really good, and the tread design looks aggressive, ive also read reviews saying that they are the quietest m/t on the market.

They get alot louder as they wear. I've gone through two sets of kumho m/t's. One 33" set and one 35" set. They're awesome tires, just wear quick like any other m/t.

there are a couple different versions of the M/T. one looks jus like a BFG m/t (series 834) and the directional ones like journeyman has(series KL71).

i had the 834's and loved them.

Yeah those KL71's are pretty sweet!

I was talking about the generic M/T style, 834's Gumby says.

the kl71s are awesome. ive mounted and balanced quite a few sets of 37s on 22s, anf they spin alot smoother than most 31s. they are very quiet, and ive heard they preform well.

I'm pretty dead set on those for replacements. You just reinforced it.

What width on a 35"? I'd settle for a 12.5" but want a 13.5".

They come in 34"x13.5"?? That's what I really want.

That crazy alaskan finally lifted his bumper eh?

Yeah that's the regular M/T, they're a good tire. Those are the ones I was referring to earlier.
