Ordered four Kumho 857's, the 195R14's, yesterday. I pick them up at the Hartford, CT warehouse on Friday, on my way through to Mystic, CT. With sales tax, they come to just under $125 each
No one makes a LT14, so with the 14" tires, there are VERY few choices to get away from the poorly rated China-made ST tires. The Kumho's (South Korean factory) have a D-rating, and carry 2094 pounds. They have an "R" speed rating, which means that, supposedly, they are good to 106mph. While I'll NEVER see that kind of speed, at least I'll able to maintain a safe flow of traffic (65mph+/-) without being at or over the tire speed rating, as I am with the factory Carlisle tires.
I got 4 years out of the Carlisles, and they still appear to be in fairly good shape. I attribute that at least partially to dilligence in chacking/maintaining proper air pressure (50psi).
