Re: Kumho KL-78

i just put a set on my truck that are 305-55-20. i couldn't pass up the price and i am happy with them so far. i only have about 2000 miles on them but they don't show any wear and they have an aggressive tread pattern. you might be able to see them from this pic. i say go for them

Re: Kumho KL-78

I've had them on my truck for a while, and currently have over 30K miles on this set.

Much better snow traction than BFG's, wearing much better than my last set of BFG's, and cost much less. I've been very happy with them.

I expect well over 50K miles on this set of tires.

Re: Kumho KL-78

If I get some, I dont think I would make it to 40K. I cant stay out of the throttle.


I appreciate all the input.
