    What's everyones opinions on them? They are a heck of a lot cheaper than most other tires and I have heard some good things about them. Would appreciate some first hand expiriences.

    I have those on my truck now and have about 5 months and 7k on them. Only so much off road I have been able to do in the city:grrrrrr:. That and its San Diego so I dont know how they will handle in the rain yet. Not much road noise. In the limited time and abuse I cant complain about them. I paid 815 out the door (warranty, install etc), but they will probably wear a little faster than usual since I have 315/75/16 mounted on the stock 16x6.5 rim (supposed to be 8-10" rims), so I just rotate more often.

    Here is also a good site that reviews alot of off road tires

    I've always heard neg. things about kumho's at least in the north east... I always get the Dueler A/T Revo's... they work as well in the winters here as they do in the summer! Firestone(bridgestone dealer) also has a deal this month buy 3 get the 4th free.... until oct 31...

    Just put a set on my Burb. Haven't been in mud or snow yet. I'm waiting to see how they are in snow as the Firestone Steeltex that were on the truck were crap in the snow (and not great in mud) in spite of a good looking tread. $600 out the door for 265/70-16. Could have saved a few bucks at Tire Rack, but by the time you figure m&b the difference wasn't that much and I'd rather give the local guy my business.

    DONT GET THEM, first tire that I ever got stuck in. I would go with Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo's... they work well in the winters & great in the spring mud! Go to Firestone dealer, buy 3 get the 4th free until oct 31. Not cheap but worth every penny

    Well, I was out at camp yesterday and it rained all day and then changed to snow about 6pm. Snowed all night. Drove out this morning on about 2" of wet, sticky snow on top of wet, muddy road. No problem at all and definitely better than the Firestones were. Only needed 4x4 once to get up one hill that is always slippery when wet. So far, so good.

    I know this is an older post now but we finally had some rain (in San Diego) so I can now comment on its performance more than my last post. since the roads arent built to handle water here (no crown) the roads puddle and flood easily. During the rain I never noticed any slipping, loss of traction or spinning at a start. So I can say they performed very well in the rain. I also went out to the desert yesterday (stopped raining friday) so I took it through a couple deep sand puddles without any issues. didnt take it through any of the soft sand (wasnt much with the rain) but drove fine in the sand I did go through that and sand is horrible underneath the truck. Just the little i did I had to make sure to hose down the undercarriage and I need to regrease everything tomorrow. Snow is the only thing I have yet to go through in the tires. the closest I got was on the drive out to the desert there was a little left in the road, but nothing I really drove through. Overall i think the tires have performed very well especially for a cheap tire.

    Thanks for bringin up the thread! Since our couple little blizzards here in Nebraska I have had a chance to test these things out in deep snow, packed snow, all the slush and crap left over, and some just plain old muddy dirt roads and driveways. These things worked great! Maybe not impressive in 2 wheel drive, but you put it in 4 and you don't slip a bit. I've pulled a few of my buddies out (im smart enough not to get stuck), one my truck was sittin in atleast 6 inches of snow, and pulled him a quarter mile to the intersection with ZERO problems. Great tire, wearing like a champ also.
