Kumho Road Venture AT KL78
Follow-Up Review: 31,000 miles on tires
This was a great tire for four years...at that mark the weather cracking on the sidewalls was significant. Treadwear was good, but the sidewall weathering has me concerned. A great tire for 31,000 miles.
Initial Review: 125 miles on tires
The previous reviews has noted exceptional handling on ice,I found this to be true as well. The grip on ice was remarkable. The was very reassuring in a pickup truck. The only issue has been a slight increase in noise level from OEM and two of the tires were difficult to balance (almost 6 ounces needed). Would probably buy the same tires again, price/value is just right.
