Kumho Road Venture MT51: Product Test

Not until 2008, when the Government started bituminising Highway Number 1, would you conceive that our nation’s four corners were in reach of the everyday adventurer.

But with remote, rugged terrain at our gritty fingertips, ensuring our rigs are ready for sustained on and offroad travel is the ongoing challenge.

And it starts with the right boots: like the Kumho Road Venture MT51 – tested in Broken Hill – which bridges the gap between the bitumen, dust and mud.

Dual pitch and staggered centre tread blocks provide excellent mud and rock crawling performance, while the MT51’s internal integrity guarantees even wear.

A stone reject bar and under groove decoration combined with compound technology minimises the risks of cracks, cuts, chips greatly extending the life of the tyre and lessening the likelihood of replacement out on the tracks. Three-level height block improves rigidity, while a zigzag groove and notching shoulder reduce sidewall damage and increase traction offroad.

RRP: From $249

Where: All good tyre retailers, nationwide
