Kuhmo Solus KL21 experience
 
These are the original tyres sold with the 2011 Laredo I bought in Canberra in May 2011. I just replaced them at 18,500km due to wear. I do live on a dirt road, but I don't drive aggressively. The tyres had very little traction on wet dirt and they were worn down to minimal tread.

I now have the 18inch Cooper AT3's which should go better. (At AU$407 each they'd better). Although after 150km I punctured one running over someone's disgarded radio aerial. I almost wish it was still on his car when it happened. Hopefully the patch will go the distance. Nice having the TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system)!

Thanks for the review. We'll know to avoid them. As long as the patch was applied properly, your patched tire should be as good as the rest. I've driven on several patched tires, on several different vehicles, and never had a problem.

How are the AT3's going???
I was thinking of putting a set on.

AT3's are going great. Got the four installed for $1500 and promptly ran over someone's discarded car radio antenna. Plugged and holding. Good tyres for the Grand Cherokee.
