The Road Venture AT51 is Kumho’s On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed for the drivers of jeeps, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles that want off-road performance from a tire also tuned for the road. Designed to combine command of rugged terrain with an all-season ride, the Road Venture AT51 delivers year-round traction in all terrains and all seasons, even in snow.
Road Venture AT51 tires feature a cut-resistant dual silica tread compound optimized for strength and heat dispersal to enhance all-weather grip and durability. This compound is molded into a wide tread featuring shoulders designed to expel stones and dual-pitch, zigzag center blocks to create a stable contact area to promote dry handling and wet braking. Full-depth circumferential grooves are stepped to boost off-road grip on loose surfaces while tread blocks are tapered to promote self-cleaning action for better traction in mud and snow.
Kumho’s ESCOT Casing Technology optimizes sidewall cord tension distribution to promote steering response and treadlife. The tire’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon to enhance off-road durability and highway stability. Use of jointless bead bundles and a two-ply polyester cord body helps isolate bumps and vibration for a smoother, quieter ride.
Note: Kumho Road Venture AT51 tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
Note: While non-winter tires featuring the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol provide additional longitudinal snow traction beyond what all-season (M+S) tires not bearing the symbol can deliver, they do not match the capability of a true winter tire in all adverse weather conditions.
