Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61

I have a pair of these on the rear axle (Walmart Goodyear Wrangler Radials on front axle) of my 2WD Explorer. We got 7 of snow day after Christmas and five more inches a couple nights later. I had to get into our self-storage place and it hadn't been plowed. I had no issue plowing through the deep stuff. Got hung up occasionally in some big drifts but just backed off and gave it some onion and these babies dug right in to keep me moving.
The sidewalls on these tires have stylish ribs to help get through the snow and they pay off. I highly recommend these to anyone in the market for a good AT tire to help in the snow if you aren't wanting to hassle changing to a winter specific tire.
