Default Kumho Road ventur MT's

http://www.treadepot.com/group/rvmt....FQohDQodWyfUoA

I saw this weekend on a toyota 4-runner and they looked pretty sweet (A friend of a friends had them).

I drove it around the block and they sounded like a claw.

Just wondering how tough the nylon sidewall is on these are for off roading.

anyone have any experience with these?

I'm running them now. When I was looking at buying some I found this wright up and after reading it was sold on getting them.
I've wheeled mine 4 times so far and love them. Plus on the road they are silent compared to the Mud Rovers I was running.

I think these are a very under rated tire. I think they are one of the best choices for a DD/Wheeler rig.



What size are you looking for? I may be going up in size soon and looking to sell/trade.

I still love mine - Just got back from Silver Lake - I'm still looking at moving up to a 35" tire though - I have a buyer for these as soon as I get off my but to get them dismounted.

I have put about 4000 on mine and would say they are still 90 or better tread. They are good offroad but also sound great on the road. My set of Mud Rovers Sucked on road. You had to yell over the noise they put off.

I ended up getting something else because i got a deal. I still think these tires are pretty bad ass looking and my friends friend swears by them.

good luck

so far the best price I found has been http://www.treadepot.com/tirelist.html they have the $202 each for the 315/70R17"

My BFG all terrains are about 80% gone at 42,000 miles. I would hope these can make it about that long?
