Kumo Tires?

Anybody have any words of wisdom on Kumos?

The load range E's for my truck are 119 each...but I've never heard anything about them.

I really like my Cooper ST's, but at 189 each I guess I should.

Msgtg, Kumho can i say offshore, Tires are a funny thing, some people like a brand name and others don't. They are like anything else in life

It's gettin pretty obvious to me that I've become a high milage kind of guy, so I'm looking for a decent all-around tire. Mostly for highway but a couple of times a year we use the 4x4 and the straight highway treads are useless. When I bought the truck it still had the Pirilli's on it....I told the dealer I needed a different tread and they put a new set on for me.

As I've said before, Michelins would be nice...but then so would winning the lottery!

Happy New Year!

Joe

Joe, I guess I should went a little more indept about the tire, Kumho, Michlin, GoodYear, Bridgestone, BFG, Cooper all brands have differant tires for differant jobs. Try and pick and it's like an open can of worms. Go with what you like but use these rules and you will get the most out of the tire you go with.

Lugs = Mud - don't wear very well

Solid Ribs = Highway - wears very well but not much traction

Sharp Edges and Sipes = Winter - Snow and Ice

Now try and pick what you do most and what you can live with, I put a set of GoodYear G-647 all around on the dually I had, they done very well on the highway but sucked in wet grass even in 4WD. I now run Pro-Grade Goodyear on my company truck 2006 F-250 , 2WD and get around 30,000 out of a set. thats not bad for what I do and where I go with what I haul.
Good Luck !

I am running Kumho Road Venture AT's on my truck as well as the Ecsta ASX's one of my Mustangs, a really good tire for the price. The main reason they keep their price low is the lack of advertising expense. I have put about 5k on them now and no problems yet, and grab just about anything i throw at them, including the recent snow. Mud seems not an issue, no clogging so far either.

I have never run Michelins on a truck, I did have a set on a 73 Gran Marquis though.
50,000 mile tread life.....replaced them at 22,000 because the steel belts were showing.
So much for the warranty.
I think they have to many people that buy the name, in my opinion the tire is not worth the dollars they want.

I had a set of Mastercraft CT tires for my last set.
Price was about 145 per tire then.
I got 28,000 miles out of them.

I also used to run Bridgestone Dueller RMT mud tires, but they were over 200 per tire.
They did great in the mud, but 20,000 miles per set.

Cooper ST is an all terrain like the Mastercraft CT, but they do better in the mud and snow than the CT did.

The Cooper SST is a mud tire which I really like the looks of, but I was afraid the mileage would be terrible.
After I bought the ST I saw a set of SST's on an F350 that had 15,000 miles on them.
They looked like about 50% of the tread was still there.
