Default New Kumho Road Venture at All terrain tires

Wow, these look better than my co-workers BFG KO2's
In person it is obvious which tire looks more capable.
I got the 32X11.50R15
Kumho Road Venture at51's. Just released in 6/2015.
I only gave my torsion bars 2 turns ifting 1/2 " in the front.
My cv joints are pretty much in the factory position still.
I trimmed the front portion of the inner fender well plastic on the front tires up about 4 inches. Now no rubbing tires.
They look killer on the truck! $139.00 each at tread depot.
These tires are edging head of the BFG's on the Tacoma World forum.

Those tires definitely look good in the snow and highway but look like a gummy tire for mud. looks nice on the truck though

thnks 93, you are correct.!

They are definitely not a MUD tire (M/T specific) The KUMHO Road Venture MT51 is for that,
but they are VERY GOOD in soft and loose terrain. The siping is great and they will clean fairly good with some spinning. NOT a mudder though. That is for sure. A true AT tire.
No A/T tire will compete in the mud with a true Mud terrain tire.

How do they perform in snow and/or ice?
How are they on wet rainy roads?
How noisy are they on the highway?

Hey BRZ, SNOW is GREAT. VERY VERY GOOD, Like snow claws!
ICE is as smart as you drive them. They performe well if you play it smart.
ICE is ICE
They have a little whine
I think they performe better than my co workers BFG KO2's

Those look great. I just put on Wranglers. Just could not pass up the $70 price. What did those run per corner?
