    Excellant tyre great value for money

    published

    Had my Kumho KL78 285 x 75 x 16 for over 4 yrs have done 94,000 km yes that's correct and they are about 5 mm off the wear indicators they have been excellent on my twin cab GQ patrol which constantly weighs over 2.5 t. Very quiet great in wet weather up here in the tropics good on gravel roads and on sand. They have been loosing a bit of grip in the wet for the past 10,000 km.probably due to hardening with age and being on a ute. Usually run around 40 - 42 psi.
    Just an update 102,000km 4mm off wear indicators 8/05/2016.

    Good tyre life

    published

    Originally had 4 fitted. Was pretty lazy with getting them rotated. 3 tyres probably have another 10 000km left in them but 1 is down to the wear indicators.
    80% on road and 20% hard offroad.
    70 000km and ready to be changed.
    For the price and milage im putting them back on.

    Good tyre for the price

    published

    Pajero, 235/85 16 LT "10 ply" tyres, no abs or traction control except the right foot.
    Various trips including NT, corner country and the flinders.
    Have done 365,000k in this car, and various makes of tyres (about 4 before kumho), and these are the only ones I have gone to a 2nd set. No they are not perfect, no AT tyre is. But good average traction on bitumen (wet and dry) and in the rough. Air down well for sand. Play the pressures to suit the conditions. Do squeal a bit when pushed hard on dry bitumen, but at that stage the 85 series are tucking under.
    Good all round tyre for a good price.
    Treads blocks do squirm a bit on bitumen when pushed.

    Priced well, wearing a bit quick though.

    Bought a set of 31 x 10.5r x 15`s.
    total cost was $750 for 5.
    Did a big trip across the top of Australia though kimberlies Kakadu Plenty hwy and hwy use.
    only done 20000k`s and they look a fair bit worn. Rotated twice in that time.
    no flats over some real rough roads and towed a heavy trailer and fully loaded Ford Ranger dual cab.
    I have one new spare remaining so I'll proberly buy another 4 before the next trip at the end of this year.
    A budget tyre that messes it up with the $300 plus tyres. others are well over priced I think.

    Are the AT KL78 a better tyre than the bridgestone 265/70 R16 LT tyre?

    Gday Jezz,
    Honestly I cant comment because I haven't used the Bridgestones.
    All I can say positively is that they are holding up really well still and the road noise is almost non existent, Great grip and handling under every situation they have been through.

    I don't know I have never used that tyre.

    Yes, Yes, Yes, & Yes, I was running bridgestones, I was amazed at how much quieter the Jeep was after the Kumho's were fitted.

    They certainly are still available, I had to purchase another one this week when I destroyed one doing some very serious off road adventures (It was my poor judgement not the tyre!). I believe Kumho are about to release some new AT & MT Tyres though.

    Indeed they are. K-mart tyre places sell them. Their website is also great:http://kumho.com.au/m/cat-car-tyres.php?cat=63
