Cheap AT Tires

Anybody ever buy any of those off brand All Terrain tires ?

Thunderer, Kumho, Patagonia, Arturo, etc.

Kumho isn't a "off" brand, they are one of the largest manufactures in the world.

I'd go Toyo ATIII depending on size, some sizes are affordable, some are high as giraffes pussy. I wouldn't avoid something like the AT51 from Kumho, they should be 90% the tire of the best all terrain tires at an attractive price.

Not sure if AT 51 still available. It seems the 52,s took its place, which looked less aggressive. I will check the web for 51. Update : not made in my size.

P255/70R16

Or

P245/75R16

I bought a set of Kanati trail hogs last year. 20” rim I think they are close to 35” tall. Paid $1200 for them.

When I saw the price on some more Hankook Dynapro ATM, my tire guy in Amite talked me into an AT tire made by a company based in north Mississippi.

I'm 6,000 miles from home right now in the middle of the South Atlantic, so I can't tell you the name of them.

I won't say they were "cheap", but they were a few $100 less for 4 compared to the Dynapro.

I looked at several video reviews, and everyone was high on them so I got them a few months back.

Probably Cooper Tire in Tupelo. Cooper makes some good tires. Yokohama is in West Point.

I found the Kumho At 51,s on line cheap at Simpletire.com

Gonna check with Phil Meraux in the morning. Mixed reviews on that simple tire.com

No doubt there are better tires, but for the money you make some sacrifices.

I’ve never bought any myself, but I’ve driven a few vehicles with some off brand tires. Between slipping and sliding on wet roads to literal shite wear patters and chunks of tread flying off down the highway, I said I’d never spend a dime on them.

If it’s for an everyday driver, and you occasionally haul people/things you care for, I’d advise you don’t.

I’ve been running General Grabber AT2
for about 8 years. They are bad azz in the mud, but rough on road. Requires rebalance a few times.

I had them grabbers too back on my first truck. They did eat.

I’ve been stuck on my Mt2 destinations for about 5 years now and haven’t had a chance to really mess around with the off brands. But my nephew and his buddies got the 26s on rubber bands and those AT/MTs they make nowadays for “looks” are garbage. If you try and pull out on a road after a rain, you will spin and catch traction control for about 200yds. I hate it.

My grandfather always told me to never go cheap on the rubber that separates you and the pavement.

I always buy good quality tires and shoes.

I run either Cooper AT3 or BFG KO2

Wait for ebay percent off coupons and then buy them from discount tire through ebay.

I have yet to pay over 1050 for a set of good year Duratracs.

Does not compute.

BUT that said, I have a set of Kelly safari tires that lasted like 50k miles on a 20 year old truck. So needless to say, that's what I buy now. Made in America as well if I remember right

Unfortunately they are now the same price as Nittos and Toyos. Falkens used to be my go-to.

Everyone I know that have gotten Kumho tires ends up hating them. My step dad even had some and he only got about 30k miles out of them.

Mastercraft Coursers. Same compound as the Cooper AT tires but a slightly different tread pattern and much cheaper. It's Cooper's discount brand. I've been running a set on my old truck now for the last 4 years with no issues.
