Kumho KL78 or BFG T/A KO

I have to get new tires for my 110 and I am looking at the kl78 by Kumho or the All Terrians by BFG. I know the KOs have a great reputation, does anyone have experience with the KL78s?

My 110 came with Kumho Ventures and I swapped for BFG T/A - Personally I think the Kumho offered a smoother ride but a tick louder on the pavement

I ran KL78's on my Defender for a short while. They were nice and quiet on the road.

Off-road, one tire ripped a sidewall on a tree stump and that was the end of it.

If you do off-road driving, I wouldn't recommend them.

I have the khumos on my suburban. Nothing wrong with them, but I rather have BFGs (which I have on the defender).

BFG's have earned their spots

I have been installing Atturo Trail Blade lately. Last two trucks look awesome. The tires are quite aggressive in appearance, yet quiet on the road. A good combo.
IMHO
