I love the Kumho brand because they are strong as.
Balance up really well. So no issues with vibrations or shimmy.

Best of all. They are priced well and more affordable then other brands

I use to run the really aggressive Kumho Kl7 in 315 75 16
Now Im running the more mild Kumho MT51 in 315 75 16


Both great tyres but MT51 much more quieter.

I've got the DC fun countrys and think they're great. Always ran Cooper stt's but wasn't prepared to pay for the new stt pro's so thought I'd try something different. Happy with my decision. Done around 30,000 on them now with no issues

I am currently running Toyo R/T. They are pretty aggressive looking for a tyre half way between an A/T and a Muddy with good road manners too.

Can't report on off road performance yet though 😩

I'm running some Maxxis RAZR's and am really impressed with them overall. There's a tyre topic in here for them somewhere. I'd recommend checking them out.

I'm running kinati trail hogs in 305/70/17. Rated 50/50 all terrain. Very good on road, nice & quiet. And do all I ask of them in the dirty fun stuff. Wear seems good, only done about 25k on them so far. Best part is they were only 300 a corner.

BFG KM2. They're like a Toyota Corolla. Boring as, but does exactly what it says on the tin. You know exactly what you get. No more, no less. It'll be very difficult to get me off them.

My mate has a set of them. Not too loud on road and as said do the job off road. They love mud.

After running many others, I always seem to gravitate back to the KM2ís and maybe the 3ís one day soon. So dependable.
