    I ran them on a Super Duty diesel awhile back. They weren’t bad, but didn’t do anything well. Wear was average, didn’t do great off road, and didn’t balance well. I would not buy them again.

    I ran a set on my old Colorado, great looking and performing tire, mileage wise they did all right, but keeping them wearing flat is a task, since you can only rotate front to back (no crossing) because they are directional.

    They are not super expensive and might be a good fit depending on one's budget.

    I pulled the trigger on a set of 35s. $228 a tire and got the road hazard for around $1200

    I think they look good, and good price depending what you use them for.

    I never had the Kumho Mud Terrian tires but I've had the Kumho All-Terrain Roadventure AT51's for the past 4 yrs been through 2 sets with 60000 miles between the 2 sets. I have driven through sand, snow and mud never been stuck, yet.

    There are more for a budget build, but they handle great in the terrain I've been on. My wife has had Kumho highway tires on her Dodge Journey for about 45000 miles before having to switch out.

    I thought about getting those ones but I don't like hearing a lot of road noise those tires make. They look good though.

    Man that’s great to hear. I have seen a lot of reliable reviews on these tires. As for budget minded, I’m a poor teacher so that’s right up my alley.
