    i have been looking at these tires and have seen good reviews. but im not sure how many miles i can get out of them i am mainly on the road but also go offroad during hunting season and other times for fun. i have seached the forum but no one says how many miles that have on them or gotten out of them. pics pf the tires would be great and what yall think about them. on gen 1 would be good to.

    From what I've been reading, people have been getting around 30-40k out of them. There is another kumho thread with some pictures.

    I've had no problems. They're quiet but have a hum on the highway. :) They also can sling sum mud. I really like them and I think they are overall some good tires.

    I was thinking about these tires too.

    I haven't heard anything bad about them, except when you get stuck, putting the truck in reverse doesn't work so well with the directional tread.

    Same goes for if you get a flat.

    those look real nice trd7. what size wheel do you have those on. and how much did they cost you. they do look like they would tear some mud up. ive heard some people getting 30-50xxx miles out of them

    never thought that since it was directional that the lugs of the tires wouldnt grabb that good in reverse. was looking at km2s but seem they would wear to fast on the blacktop

    Thanks they are 265/75/16. They were $167.00 a tire on tirerack.com which is $668.00 for all four. I also ordered rims which came out to around $450 for all four. They came shipped, mounted, and balanced for $1,289.98 incl. shipping. Shipping was $145. :)

    tires sure are cheap online until they get you with the shipping.most places are 600 for tires then another 100-150 for shipping defeats the purpose of buyin local.lol
