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.
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.

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.

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.

Dam you put a lot more miles then I have! Glad to hear their holding up well. What psi you run on road? Off? Thanks

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.

allblackedout 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.
12-22-2012 11:09 PM
BlackOpsJeep 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.
12-22-2012 06:09 PM
TheRicker I'm gonna wait for them to make 35's then get them.

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!
