I have had them for about 4 years now. I have to have around 30k miles but I do not remember how many miles I had when I put them on. I think they have been a great tire and quit for the aggressive pattern. They have been doing that saw tooth wear pattern which makes em bumpy at VERY low speed. I think I will be gettingthe nitto trail grappler this time in hopes of a quieter tire. The kumho is also directional so u can only rotate front to back. I started looking for new tires around november but that have not worn as I thought they would. Still not even to the treadwear indicators.

Read my post in off road forum under best mud tire. Kuhmos are great. Perform better then toyos, I've owned toyos many times. I have had my kuhmos all over Nevada desert, and did a trip from Alaska to Vegas in dead of winter on them towing way overweight, the tires were over weighted and performed flawless in snow and ice. They did sawtooth after that trip(cupping) so I ran them backwards for 1500 miles to level them out, runnin them forward again, have 26k miles, 24k of towing with full time locker, they have about 40-50% tread, can't say enough about these tires. Have had three sets of toyos now these, will buy kuhmo again next time. Have bigger voids then others and directional, true performance tires are directional.

I agree with jetjock but I don't really go offroad anymore so that is why I am looking at the trail grapler. I didn't think about running them backwards. I'll do that.
