5.0 Great tire for a good price

About 5000 miles since install. Good wet and dry traction. Tire noise is present, but is much less that expected. Driving at 70 and you have no problem carrying on a conversation. Plus, they just look AWESOME!

1.0 Disappointing, big expectations after having the KM2

Having KM3 tires on my Toyota Prado 90 (265/70/R16), after driving them for 12,000 (~) miles the tires "lost" few of pieces (pictures attached). After having 2 sets of KM2 in the past (which i was 100% satisfied) i was expecting MUCH more durability from those tires.

5.0 Lasted from Mexico to the tip of Argentina and back!

We replaced our aging K02's in Oaxaca, Mexico with a set of KM3's and they took us exploring offroad through the jungles of Central America to the great Paracas sand dunes of Peru to the Bolivian and Brazilian Amazon jungle. Had enough tread to make it back to the USA. Shocked they lasted that long on our heavily loaded Land Cruiser.

5.0 Off-road

I have had these tires on my 2013 Jeep wrangler Rubicon for 20,000 miles. They are the best tires I have purchased for on and of the road performance. On road performance they have great traction is Rain and Snow. Off-road performance these tires are great under pressure and when needed. I have used the tires on countless rock crawling trips and absolutely no complaints. Not too loud cruising down the highway (70mph) for a Mud-Terrain tire.

1.0 Great look, terrible tread wear

The KM3's look sooooo good, and they preform well on dirt but.......the tread wear has been horrendous. I have about 14,000 miles on them and they cup so bad. I have some knobs that don't even touch the ground. I have to rotate them every 2000 to 4000 miles other wise the treads get so cupped out that the truck vibrates. I can feel each tread lug knocking on the asphalt. I even had my truck realigned just to eliminate that as a possible cause for the early wear and I still only got a couple thousand miles out of them after a fresh alignment before I had to rotate the tires again. The tread overall has worn out fast and is noticeably smaller also. Really disappointed and not sure where to go from here with these.

5.0 KM3 GREAT TIRE!!!

I have had several brands of MT over the years. When the KM3 first came out I bought the first set that Tire World got thru the door. Right now I have 70000 miles on them and they need to be replaced. They have wore good for a MT, they ride great and are not too loud. My 2014 F250 is not a pavement prencess and the KM3s have gotten me thru mud that others could not make it thru. I have been trying weeks to find 35x12.5x18 replacements with Zero luck. I am hoping I can find some soon before I have to go to another brand. Don't hesitate to buy these tires if you find them.
