Kenda has the new KR601 R/T in 35x10.5R17 out!
Actual listed spec chart size of 34.7x11R17 converts to 280/80R17
And it's D rated !!!


I've got a set of 5 coming Fed-Recks, we'll see how they look when they get here next week!

A quick look indicates about $200 a tire.

They have a 33 10.5 17 also. I have a Mopar 2 inch lift and I would consider them or the 35’s for my stock rims.

Both the 33's and 35" would fit with 1 1/4" spacers behind the stock rims.
35"s would need flat fenders on a 2" lift.

Thanks for posting this. Getting in the thread so I am notified of updates.

I do like the size options. Let's see how they perform.

I have seen the Kenda RT at Overland Expo. They are a fantastic looking tire. Unfortunately, I couldn't get them in 35's when it was tire time for me... I tried.

They did focus on all the right areas of offroad performance and quiet and smooth ride. Can't wait to see these new sizes!

Kenda's ad (post #9 above) says the tire has "bead protectors".


Is this a real thing, or marketing fluff?
it is a real thing. lots of tires have bead protectors. just a thicker band of rubber near the bead.

In the motorcycling world, Kenda isn't known for their quality.

Are things different in the 4 wheel world?
I'd hope so.

I got suckered and tried a set on one of my bikes. Was slippery/scary and I took them off pretty soon. That bike was my DD in south Florida and slippery didn't work in an area that saw that much rain.

They don't offer any for 16" wheels at all. What up with that?
I'll stick with Cooper. They still love me.

They have a very rounded profile, narrow tread width but wider section width than many other tires. Much like the Patagonia's.
