New Kumho Mud Tyre Takes Aim At Working Truck Market

Originally Published: August 2017

KUMHO HAS LAUNCHED the Road Venture MT51 – a new all-terrain tyre designed for a slightly less extreme market than the existing Road Venture MT KL71. With a self-cleaning tread pattern featuring zig-zag tread grooves and robust shoulders for traction on soft and muddy ground, the MT51 also has notched shoulders to help it hook on to rocks and climb out of ruts. Sidewall biters help protect against punctures, and the tread blocks are siped for grip in snow. Kumho says the MT51 ‘combines great off-road capability with a very impressive level of on-road performance, not least first-class braking on both gravel and tarmac.’ At launch, the MT51 is available in a choice of twelve of the most popular sizes across the 15, 16 and 17-inch fitment range. With both M+S and snowflake markings, it promises to be a tyre for all seasons and environments – exactly the kind of tough, do-itall rubber that tends to be chosen by professional users.
