Hi, I was wondering if anyone as had anything to do the the Kumho Venture A/T 825. I have a 80 Series that is in need for some new boots. I found this site http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Kumho&tireModel=Venture+AT+825 but the reviews are from Yanks. Sales man from Tirepower said these tires are under rated and demand more respect. Hmm sounds like a sales pitch to me. Thanks for your reply. Ohhhh and I was quoted $225 per tire.......

I had some older Kumho AT's on my GQ when I got it, I would estimate 200,000,000 klms out of them, they were ROCK hard... they didnt wear 1 bit in 30,000klms - they were just the klms that I did, they were used when I got the car. VERY HARD rubber....

Gripped like poo to a blanket in wet and dry on road, but offroad were as useful as slicks. Long lasting, 100k klms very easy....

All depends on what you are after...

Plenty of good tires around now days, just depends on waht you want them for.

Another happy Kumho customer here. But i think you should be able to get them for $200 a tyre.They have a fair bit of profit to play with, espescially if u are getting 4.

Run Kumho 31X10.5X15s on my Hilux, after 35,000 ks they are kaput, maybe another 3-5,000 left (at a stretch).

The old Hilux however, spends most of its time on the rough stuff, and the tyres have had a fair old beating, not much good it the mud though.

Have just bought a set of Hankook muddies for the ruff stuff, and will let the Kumhos end their life on the tar.

Cheers
