Do I get extra discount if I am willing that they adorn my car with a few advertisements :pray: Maybe buy one, get one free, or something like that.

I can only ask bud.... The main thing is that they aren't as big as, lets say Bridgestone for example, so they don't quite have the budget I think to do sponsorship/advertising deals.

If they did, they could splatter my Iron Maiden with stickers too.... :rolling: :rolling:

If they really want to impress me, they could get one of them tyre tread stickers that some of the guys have going over there tracks, but in KL71 tread pattern. I mean that tread pattern is unmistakable and SOOOper cool.

Always wondered how they do them stickers. Have even searched the web and can't find anything that I can take to a printing place either.

I had the KL78's (AT) on the Rok on steel rims as an extra set for 10k kms and they were brilliant; even in the landy size, 235/85R16, they outperformed my 255/60R18 in the wet ito roadholding and stopping. Ridiculous? Not at all; minor altercation with an idiot driver had me standing on the brakes and chewing my seat. They are good.

The KL71's I put on after my Swaziland trip and haven't looked back since. They are 265/75R16 (32") and rather heavy if you want to change before a trip, but they haven't let me down once. I really drive rather badly in town (sometimes) and they only lose traction under extreme provocation. They are excellent, but they are noisy with the directional tread and big... really big; I can just about fit my index finger between the tread and the bolt of the upper swingarm on the Rok and some slight rubbing on the RH rear side under full lock right.

Would I buy them again? Without doubt; they are value for money and performs well.

I agree totally with Theunis.... when it comes to safety..... price is NOT an issue..... just so happens that these tyres are VERY affordable. I get decent mileage and know they will stop my 3 ton Iron Maiden if the need arises. But yeah they are noisy.... but with an aggressive tread pattern like that what can one expect :biggrin: :biggrin: ...... Turn up the radio a little more :lol: :lol: :lol:
