Firestone Destination MT vs Kumho Road Venture MT KL71

Looking to pick up some tires to wrap around the 20" wheels I just bought off craigslist (mentioned in this thread). I have a friend who can get me a deal through TireRack and the 2 cheapest tires they have in a 35x12.50r20 are the Firestone Destination MT and the Kumho Road Venture MT KL71. Both have excellent reviews but there are a few slight differences between them. The Kumho Road Venture MT's are directional which will make rotating the tires uneven with my spare. They are both load range E, I checked a couple different sites and had a hard time finding anything load range D in this size (35" KM2's for 20's run $580/tire :O). I've read that the Road Venture is a better on-road tire than the Destination (rig is a daily driver) but I'm still torn. Anyone have any input?

I have not ran the Destinations but I have had two sets of the Kumho's. Even though they are directional if you had a flat you could run the spare anywhere on the Jeep to get you out of whatever you're in. Just take it to the tire shop as soon as possible. The Kuhmo's are the best tire I have ever ran. Cost less too. I have had them on a LandCruiser and a Duramax.
