Found my future tires!!!

I was looking through my Peterson's magazine last night. when i saw these tires.



they come in a 265/70/17, 31.9" tall. and they come in either a load range of C or E.

I'll Be getting the C load range.

I've found these for $165.

What are your thoughts on these.

I used BFG KM Mud terrains before. and TRXuS Mud terrains before. i'm hoping these will be just as good.

i have a set of Kuhmos on my 300ZX and they are very good tires. they have lasted through 2 cars and 2 years of high mileage.

AND! THEY LOOK AWESOME!!!!

The reviews don't look to good for street. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....enture+MT+KL71
But on the off road side they look good. http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT...re-MT-KL71.htm

Those look pretty sweet. How much rub do you guys think that size tire will have with 1.5" spacers and a rocky road lift on stock 17 chrome clad wheels?

I can picture those flinging mud like crazy!

Are you concerned about road noise with those?

i don't really care about road noise.

i have two kids who talk all the time while we drive. maybe it'll make it so we can't hear them yak.



after you have had swapper type tires, everything else is much quieter.

Tire Rack did not have them in 265/70/17. Where did you find them?

I think it's a good looking tire. I like the thread pattern. If you don't care about the noise, I say go for it.
