Re: WK2 DownUnder

Can anybody recommend good replacement tyres? I've had 25,000 km out of my Kumho KL21s and the two front tyres need replacing (at least, one of them is now the spare and the other was rotated to the back.)

They seem to have uneven wear, probably due to occasional beach driving at lower pressures.

They are Kumho KL21 265/50R20 107V. I use the Jeep mostly on-road but with occasional fishing forays to the beach.

Which is the most cost effective in terms of mileage per dollar spent, and who has the best deals in Brisbane?

Can anybody tell me what the M+S suffix means?

I don't want to put on bigger tyres.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Give the kl21s the flick and go to kl33s they are much better quality and you will get double if not more the milage. I have a full set here in vic for $1000 they have done 10k i took them off after going larger rims so needed 295s. Kl33s cost me $340ea fitted and balanced.
