i have been impressed with every set of kumho tires ive owned. im on my 4th set now.

which model are you refering to?

ive got road venture KL-78 A/Ts, and they are nice.

travis has the KL-71 M/Ts, im sure he will chime in here sometime and let you know how they are too.

what = good to you? what kinda info are you lookin for?

All Kumho products are great! They have super duper reviews on their offroad tires too.




You should probably get a smaller size haha

Yeah. I've got the same MT's as AK_Ranger only in the 33" version. They are wearing pretty quick, but that's to be expected of all MT's that are DD. They definitely have been great tires for me. I think I've got 25k on them, and I'll be lucky to get 35k I think. But hopefully by then I've got a car and it doesn't need to be a DD.

I've talked to Travis about the KL-71's and he said they ride a lot better then any MT's he's ever had. So if your looking for an MT for just the tougher look they give or you expect to do more driving on the road, you may want to lean towards the 71s. I probably would if I could do it again (or if the KL-71 existed when I bought my tires). Granted checking sizes, they don't have a tire for 16" wheels.
