Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires
January 14, 2014

I bought these before going through a major snow storm in New York and they handled great! Went everywhere in 2wd. The next winter had about 6-7 which was less in NY storm of snow and handled great but had to use 4wd, due to the fast tread wear. Did not like the tread wear and cupping on steer tires. Rotate every 5k miles and still got cupping. My alignment is SPOT, SPOT on with in .01 degrees on and all new steering parts before install. I myself am a mechanic for a living and made sure that was all done. Had to adjust rear tire and front tire pressure every rotation to get even wear and try to mitigate the wear issues.

These tires did okay in the mountains and were okay in the mud/wet dirt roads. I do get A LOT A LOT of spinning on wet roads and turns after/during rain conditions. Did not like the longevity of the tires, seemed to be too short for what people were saying they got. Would not recommend these tires for someone looking for a long lasting tire on a truck.

Hope this review helps.
