    Has anybody used these tires? the reviews on the tire sites say their indestructable and the best m/t in the snow.

    I havent yet!

    They are on my list before the snow falls.
    I put a set kumho's on my Honda Accord last fall and they ran circles around the Michelins that where on the car at half the price.
    I would assume the truck tires are just as good.

    I have Kumho M/T's on my shop truck. They are a good tire. They are cheap, only $120/tire mounted/balanced for 33X12.5X15. They do good in snow, I actually like them better, both price and performance than the BFG M/T's on my 97 and 03.

    No just the brand name, Kuhmo, can't remember the letters to them, all I know was they were cheap, with good spec's.:)

    I installed a set of the KL41 (LT235 85R 16) on my K2500 last Sept. They did quite well in for pushing when they were new. I have 16,000 on them now and they are wearing evenly. They have about less than 1/2 of the tread left at this point. We'll see how the work this year with the reduced tread. I don;t expect to get more than 25,000 miles out of them though. Carrying a plow spreader and ballast over the winter and pulling a trailer 5 days a week the rest of year puts a lot of stress on them.
