I can't speak about the ATs... but I've heard nothing but good things about the MT 834 (equivalent of mine) and the KL-71s. When I got mine I just kind of went out on a limb, because I hadn't really heard of them, but they were way cheaper the BFGs. So I did it, and haven't regretted it once. Mine clean out well in the mud and do pretty exactly what I'd want (they could maybe ride a little quieter but can't win them all). I know Aaron (red_ak_ranger) likes his and they are the same tire as mine, and I think Travis (l2en) is running the KL-71's and said he really likes those.

I would say give them a shot cause I know Kumho makes a pretty good tire in the MT department.

Sorry I can't be of more help directly on the tire you asked about.

I wish they made the M/T in a larger size than 265/75/r16 or I'd be all over them.

Umm, I have 35 inch M/Ts.....


Go to www.tirerack.com to look up the Kumho tire sizes.


As Matt said, I love my tires and think they're very good. Kumho is very well priced and they last a long time on the road.
