Purchased in June 2020 for $920.00.
Never again kumho
Not even a year old or 20,000 ks
Less than 3mm left terrible tyres don't waste your money on they were ok in wet performed well just don't last long
Purchased in September 2020 at Bob Jane T-Marts for $900.00.
Only had these tyres for 5 month and wears out too fast half way already.
Slippery during wet. Can’t hack an off road gravel track. I had 2 puncture tyres. Never again.
Purchased in October 2020 for $880.00.
Very scary tyre. Do not buy.
Fitted new with full car alignment, regular rotation and balance.
1. On wet tared road, absolutely dangerous. Lockup without warning. (Previous tyres never did this),
2. Clear uneven last two outer edge ware, that has jaggered tread separation noticed by me and my mechanic as dangerous tread separation on ALL 4 tyres both edges.
3. Road noise significant. Compared to previous tyres, distinctively loud.
Kumho are renowned for tread separation world wide. These AT51's certainly exhibit clear dangers of this very issue here in Australia!
Its hard to see in pictures, but outer edge ware not only at different level but also pealing and separating as if rubber is different quality or area wrongly layered.
Purchased at Tyrepower for $800.00.
No grip in the and in Mud
Purchased a full set of Kumho 305/170 tires from Kmart 3 years age, great tire in the dry, in the wet and in muddy terrain there poor, wear wise, I've done 50k and should get another 30k before needing replacement.
Would I buy them again, yes I would but not from Kmart due to there poor after sales service as they couldn't do wheel lineament correctly if they tried.
Purchased in February 2017 at Mycar (Kmart Tyre & Auto Service) for $1,200.00.
Worst tyres in the wet - dangerous
I have had these tyres for over a year. The noise level is good compared to others I have owned. The tread lasts but these are extremely dangerous in the wet. They slide, fishtail and offer little to no grip.
I would never purchase these again.
Great Tyres Good grip
Bought these Kumho AT51 Road Venture Tyres recently for my 4WD Set of 4 & I really like them, they have a good grip, feel safe on the road even in the pouring rain, Also quiet on the road, that was the tyre that was on the car when purchased so I thought I'd stick with them. Would recommend.
Purchased in July 2019 at Whittlesea Tyrepower for $795.00.
KUMHO Road ventur AT51 - pathetic in the WET
Not bad in the dry, but any moisture around and they become slippery. The tyres are unremarkable as far as providing any benefit as far as performance goes. Wear is not to bad but as I said dangerous in the wet. I certainly will not be using these tyres again.
Bad choice of tyre
3 of the 4 tyres purchased de-laminated and became unusable. 2 within 2 years and one at four years of age Very limited life and poor performance. kumho offer little in after sales service. Low noise reasonable grip in dry but poor grip in the wet. overall would not consider Kumho again.
Good not great
Have 4, 31x10,5x15 on Ford Ranger for 2 years:
Good front wheel stability,low hwy noise-5 stars
Bad traction on wet-2 stars,
Just as bad in the mud-2 stars, as soon as groves fill up with mud,traction gone,
Delicate side wall,
After 20K hit a pot hole at high speed,split the side wall on front(got heavy bull bar and winch)
Verdict:OK tyres but you have to go easy on them...
Cheapest price found at k mart
Good value. Quiet tyres and great grip in the wet or dry. After my last set of noisy muddies it's great now at any speed to still be able to have a conversation. Had to buy a whole set and would recommend these as seplacement again if necessary.
Good value for money
I bought 6 of these tyres in April this year 285x75x16 for my patrol I have done 14,000km since the purchase they are very quiet and grip the road surface well and are good in the wet. Their good on gravel roads but they do tend to hold stones in the tread because the gap is smaller than my previous set of Kumho KL78. I would recommend these as a good all round tyre.
Value for the money
Got them from tyre power for the company vehicle. This is to replace 4 Dueler and less road noise. Not sure if i get the cheapest price but seems reasonable when doing some mild off road and camping. Cannot judge too much on the off road performance as i have only done once. bitumen wise is good and comfort. not sure about the life span of these tyres too as i just replaced them 1 month ago.
Happy So Far
Have had these for just on 12 months (size 265?75R16) 50% on dirt roads like Gibb River etc. Towing a 2 ton K/van. the other 50% on the black. Have done 20,000 Ks. one wheel align and tyres crossed at 19000 Ks. tyre tread new was 12mm, now approx. 8.5mm. working on that premise should get a good 60,000k,s . they are reasonably quiet. and handle well. The drivers are conservative.
