Kenda Klever M/T

Hey everyone I just found out about these mud tires after weeks on endless shopping. I'm a college kid so moneys always tight and thats how I found these. The Klevers go for $550 for a set of 4 on ebay brand new. Their self cleaning treads and re actually not bad in the rain and road noise is low. They get the job done on the trail most importantly. Just thought I'd let you all know!

Ya the rep at Kenda said they are testing bigger sizes and will have them out soon. These 32's are about as big as they get. I think there is a 33" equivalent (285/75/17?) but that's it for now. Can't beat the price though.

Kendas are holding up nicely. They did great on road in the storm yesterday. Low road noise and very smooth ride. Can't beat them for the price but lets see how they hold up in the long run. Fow now, their awsome.

I have 300. Their very quiet but get much quieter after the first 100 miles. Good road traction. Rains not bad but fresh snow gets slippery.

about 8K so far. I rotated all 5 at 7K and will do so every time I change my oil. So far, no noticeable wear on the tread which is outstanding. I'm looking to get 50-60K out of them before I have to replace them at this pace. Took them out mudding and they did fantastically. Our Jeep club is going camping for a whole weekend in North GA in 2 weeks to some trails and I will chime in about that later.

They are at about 32-35PSI on the road and on the occasions I went off, I didn't have to air down since there aren't any rocks to climb here. However, I will be doing this in 2 weeks at durhamtown 4x4 park in union point, GA. Prob drop down to 20-25 depending on what is there.

Hmm i wonder how much of a difference the 5psi will make. Mine were at 40 then i dropped them to 38, honestly didnt realize that wouldnt change much, and am getting around 12-13 mpg city. I have the 3.8 with 3.73 gears. Little bit of a heavy foot so I would place myself at blame for the mpg. Do you observe a lower mpg then I do at your 32-35 psi level?

I get about 18-20 mpg if I stay 65 mph on the hwy, even better at lower speeds. Above 65, it starts going down to 16-18 mpg's

Um I have 3.21 gears and the 3.8 Pentastar. Those 3.73 gears should be too much difference when it comes to gas milage. Any higher prob would. Maybe someone can chime in. 14-16 is about average for city though so don't worry about it.

I got a chance to look at this tire in person today at a local tire shop. It looks a lot better than I expected! The tread was a full 8.25" wide and they seemed a little taller than the stock SR-As also. Sidewalls were thick for a "C" rated tire. Tread blocks have siped grooves in them for rain and snow traction. There are stone ejector bars between the outer blocks. It looks like a premium mud terrain tire, but it's $130 delivered from ebay or $190 installed from local shop. I'm seriously thinking about trying these when my stockers are worn out later this year.

Only things I don't like... they are made in China and they don't have a bead protection flange like other MTs. But for the price, there is nothing else remotely close.

Actually they are made in Taiwan I found. Not thrilled but not suprised either. Some of their other tires are made in China though. Coopers are made in China, Bridgestone is Japan as are some Firestones, and various other manufacturers have them imported too.

Their also suprisingly quiet on the road. They ride better and quieter then my SR-As. I'm nervous about airing them down while offroad though, not guna lie, Ifeel like I'm going to pop a bead as soon as the psi gets below 25. I like to run 15-20 for beach driving but I don't think I'll try that with these this summer.
