Anyone running kelly safari tsr tires? Curious on how they hold up and ride

I believe Kelly is now handled by Good Year. So most likely they are made the same quality.

I thought Kelley Springfield was an OEM for other brands? Goodyear bought them out?

EDIT: SOB! Just went to the Kelly website and sure enough its all about Goodyear.

Ran them on my Ford Raptor, really liked that tire. Just bought a 2015 rubicon and plan on installing those when I get around to lifting it. Buddy of mine that built jeeps turned me on to that tire. Really aggressive all terrain tire. Can't beat the price either. Spent about 1150 for a set of 4 35inch installed about 2 years ago

Just got a set of four 265/75/16 load C. Speedo not recalibrated yet but hot tail i love them! They track somewhat well and steer nicely. Might be over inflated; havent had time for chalk test.

Got them at Garys tire in okawville IL for like 784 out the door.

They took my chrome cap valve stems off but oh well..

had them just 4days under 1 month and holy smokes i like them. On summer blend my milEage jumped from 16mpg to roughly 17.25 mpg mixed driving and the fronts just now wore off the over mold on the tread block face and the rears you cant tell they wore at all after the overmold came off. The side walls do seem a bit soft butbit is a load C. They handle very well in rain and on the road. Very quiet too! Now we are getting winter blend mpg dropped back to 16 but i almost doubled the tire weight from the 225/75/16 OEM goodyear ST.
