Anyone had anything to do with the Kumo Roadventure AT 825 tyres???

Our new van came in a tad heavier than we anticpated on paper , and the tyres we have on it (supplied our own tyres/rims) haven't got enough safety margin in the load capacity, so looking at getting higher load rating tyres. Specifically looking at light truck tyres with load index rating of 120 (can carry 1380/1400kg) that can be also used on the tow vehicle in a pinch (tow veh has 245/70R16 107 load index tyres) and research has led me to consider either LT 245/75R16 in either Kumo Roadventure AT 825 or BFG AT as both are 120 load rated .

Any coments on either brand appriciated or the topic in general for that matter.

I hate Kumho tyres - they go out of round too quickly. The best and ONLY tyres for serious off road in Australia are BF Goodrich, either All Terrains or MT's.

Graham. Both. the model was the mudterrain equivalent. I used them, so did a good friend, whom we have undertaken many trips with. On a particular Victorian high country trip, two of his tyres were clearly misshapen.

Thanks Olaf,
seems they are a lighter tyre in weight (ie not as much material used in the tyre) so that could be something to do with it..
Now that BFG A/t's load rating on the 245/75x16 has been reduced looks like only Cooper left with decent A/T in that size with 120 load rating...
