    Default KUMHO Road Venture AT KL78

    im going today to get a set of these for my 1990 4x4.
    265-75-16.

    do any of you have any experience with these tires ?
    i never do any mudding, but occasionally do some rock and gravel roads and ramps where i go fishing.
    looking for a decent ride with no vibrations, good wet traction in rain, and wet boat ramp traction.

    thanks

    it was raining this morning on my way to work, and at a few stop lights i hit the gas pretty hard, and they gripped great. so wet traction seems to be good, at lest form a dead stop launch.

    i always like to rotate my tires at 5k, but been so busy lately that i haven't gotten around to it yet. but its nice to know that even at 10k there is no feathering of the front tires. im sure i will go with these tires again when needed. i really like the look of them on my truck.

    I had the Kuhmo AT's on a honda element we had. I was happy with their performance without a doubt, but then again, the automobile they were on couldnt really test their abilities. Great grip in the snow though. We had a horrible storm here and just plowed right on through while everyone else was in the ditch.
