kumho or hankook

Unread postby nathanj1 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 3:18 am

Need to replace my tires soon and I can't decide yet between Hankook and Kumho. I'm considering Hankook because 4WO|Truck Parts is willing to give me a nice price. Well, Kumho is also a popular choice. Any input will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Specifically which tires did you get?
Current truck project: fender flare removal and ready lift installation. Waiting for my customized bumper to arrive.

I don't know about kumho, but after having 2 blow outs on one trip, I talked to my tire guy to get a set much better than what I had.
So I put 4 new Hankook Kontrol LT's on and it's been Fantastic. They run a little hard (at 65 psi) but haven't given me any problems over the last year.
One think I did notices, is lower rolling resistance. I have a '84 TD, and I can travel at freeway speeds (55-60mph) without any boost, where before there was always a pound or three at those speeds.

Interesting insight. Good thing I've read this since I'm looking for a new set of tires to use.
