Do you really need those chunky, loud, fast-wearing and most likely questionably named ‘mud terrain’ tyres? Sure, they have their place and many serious four-wheel drivers will run them; but what about your daily driver or those who rack up mostly highway kilometres? The HT-51 is the latest release from Kumho, backing up on the success of the more aggressive MT and AT-51 ranges. This highway terrain pattern has been constructed for long life, covered by Kumho’s 80,000km warranty. This is achieved through a 720 high treadwear rating, symmetrical four-channel layout, stiff centre blocks and a zig-zag style groove design. Kumho tells us these design elements have been engineered to provide superb performance in highway conditions (or simply getting from A to B).
